Mixed Bag Designs has always had lots of fun and exciting styles to sell for your fundraiser—but only recently did we start offering products you can TASTE. Lots of fundraisers involve yummy food, but Mixed Bag Designs offers foods that are both delicious and healthier alternatives. We have gluten free cake and cookie mixes, and foods made from all-natural ingredients.
Besides our food mixes, we have kitchen gadgets to help you prepare tasty and well-rounded meals. Our Veggie Chopper makes chopping up ingredients for your favorite salsa, main dish or snack simple. Give the easy-pull cord a few pulls to prep your foods without lugging out a big food processor. Our Spiralizer easily turns your favorite soft vegetables like zucchini and squash into veggie “noodles.” Use them for salads, saute them and more! Click here for recipe ideas from our website.
Besides food items, shop for kitchen accessories, home decor, party goods and great gifts in our Kitchen & Home Catalog. With a great price-range, tons of variety and products everyone will love, fundraising with Mixed Bag Designs just got even better. Between our Kitchen & Home and Bags & Accessories Catalogs, choose from 100s of sure-to-please items.
Earn up to 50% profit with Mixed Bag Designs’ flexible and easy fundraising program.

Even if you are running a great catalog fundraiser, encouraging students to participate can be tricky. Also, you don’t want to spend much money on incentives because that will cut down on your fundraising profits. Mixed Bag Designs fundraiser reps have worked with lots of schools and groups, and we’ve compiled some awesome incentives from real schools to help encourage your sellers to bring in those orders!
Individual Seller Rewards
- Any seller who turns in an order gets a free sucker
- Consider having small rewards for number of orders brought in: 1 order = a sucker, 2 orders = a sucker and smarties, 3 orders = a sucker, smarties and bouncy ball, etc. Kids will clamor to collect them all!
- Sell a certain amount ($50 is a good suggestion) and the seller gets to attend a pizza party
- Gift Cards for the top sellers: $75 to #1, $50 to #2 and $25 to 3rd place. Try to get local businesses to donate.
- Top sellers of the week get a special badge to wear for a day
