Frequently Asked Questions

Fundraiser Questions

What do I have to do to fundraise? 

It's easy! Just register as fundraiser or start a cookie crew fundraising team. Then get the word out to friends, co-workers, and family. You can post a personal message on your cookie doughnation webpage, print  marketing materials, send reminder emails, and link to social media, all from your Headquarters. Get there by logging in and clicking on the Headquarters button in the top right corner of this page. 

What is the minimum dollar amount I can set as my fundraising goal?

There's no minimum, since EVERY cookie doughnation or $30 donation helps us achieve our mission of delivering nutritious meals, at no cost, for those living with sever illness. Every dollar raised allows us to provide medically tailored meals for someone in need! However, we encourage you to set a goal to sell at least ten cookie dough pacakges. 

Can I join an existing cookie crew if I've already registered as an individual fundraiser?

Yes. To join an existing team, log into your Headquarters. On the right side of your screen, you'll see a list of actions you can take. Click on "Change Team Membership" at the end of the list and search for the team you wish to join. Having trouble? Contact Jacqueline Crowley, directly. 

Can I send emails about Cookie Doughnation through my regular email account?

Yes, of course!  If you use our system it allows you to track responses to your emails, and the "group" feature allows you to send group emails to current donors, past donors, or people who have not yet supported Cookie Doughnation. You can easily import email addresses from other email systems. 

I love the pre-written emails, but can I customize them to sound more like me?

You know it! We encourage this! Use as little or as much of the pre-written text as you like. The people you email are more likely to respond to a message that sounds like it's from you.

Will you deliver my cookie dough to me?

We do not deliver. Cookie dough will be available for pickup at one of our locations in the Denver metro area, Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Boulder on Tuesday, December 12 ONLY. Click here for a full list of pickup locations and times.

When is the last day I can reserve my cookie dough?

December 12, 2023 is the final day but they will sell out so don't wait! 

Rather than cookies, I want to make a gift to Project Angel Heart. Can I do this online?

You can! Click on the Donate button at the top of the page. Each donation of $30 will provide more than two medically tailored meals to a Coloradan living with a life-threatening illness. Donations can be made through December 10. 

Are these cookie dough packges tax-deductible?

Yes!  $25 is tax-deductible.

If I can't make it to a pickup location, what should I do?

If you can't pick up your cookie dough from your selected pickup location on December 12, you may have a friend pick them up. You may also be able to pick up at Project Angel Heart's Denver office on Wednesday, December 13 before noon. Please email us at to make arrangements. Cookie Dough not picked up by noon on December 13 will be donated.

Can I buy cookie dough and donate it to a Project Angel Heart client?

No, but you can make a donation to help us provide nutritious meals to all of our clients. 

uestion: Can I send emails through my regular email account?
Answer: Yes, you can. However, there are benefits to using the email system in your Participant Center. First, our system allows you to see if contacts opened your email and/or visited your pie page. Second, the "group" feature allows you to send email only to people who bought pie or donated, or only to those who have NOT. Lastly, it will store all of that info, including a list of who purchased/donated, for next year's Pie in the Sky event.

Question: Can I customize the emails to sound more like me?
Answer: Of course. We encourage this! Use as little or as much of the pre-written text as you like. The people you email are more likely to respond to a message that sounds like it's from you.
