About Us

At Claire’s Gourmet, we believe fundraising should be fun. Not just for the kids and participants involved, but for everyone in the organization responsible for planning and administering a fundraiser. We’ve developed a fundraising program that takes all the hassle out of the fundraising process. From planning your fundraiser with an expert consultant to easy online tallying, we’ve made the process simple, straightforward, and above all – profitable.

Since 1969, we’ve offered high-quality fundraising programs for elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, daycares, and organizations of all types. From our Baltimore, MD headquarters we proudly serve organizations across the Mid-Atlantic, including Maryland, Washington, D.C., Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

Quality Products for Successful Fundraising

The Claire’s Gourmet selection of gourmet desserts, popcorn, pizza, and other treats is hand selected for exceptional quality and exceptional value. The most successful fundraisers are built on tradition, with customers coming back year after year to order their favorite treats and support their organization. To build a tradition like this, as we have with so many of our fundraising organizations, the product your customers are purchasing must deliver on quality and value.

While we emphasize value in all of our products, we also believe that offering higher quality is crucial to the success of any fundraiser. Every item we sell is handpicked for taste and priced at a superior value, to deliver maximum profits for the fundraiser.

Our process itself is streamlined and easy, requiring as little work as possible from your organization. You’ll meet with an expert fundraising consultant prior to your event launch, and receive customized communications for your event.
