Selecting a cause
Having a bake sale for a worthy cause to raise money is the first thing you must be very clear about.

Some schools and colleges would also invite fundraisers on their special event days such as concerts and sporting events as most students and parents would appreciate some baked goodies especially if they are part of a charity.
Timing of the sale
