Whether it’s money for the band, football team or a class trip, fundraising happens almost year round in schools. Oftentimes, you end up doing the same thing every year. These fundraisers work well, but why not mix it up. Do something different. Can’t come up with any ideas? We’ve put together a list of some things you may want to consider.
1. Harvest dinner – Ask some area chefs to donate their time and prepare a menu. Sell tickets to a limited number of seats.
2. Pumpkin carving contest – people bring their “best work” to display. In front of each pumpkin is a jar. People vote by putting money in the jar of their favorite pumpkin. Each vote is $1 and people can vote as often as they like. The jar with the most money wins half the proceeds from only their jar. All other money goes to the fundraiser.
3. Dodgeball tournament – teams register for a fee. Get food vendors for the day to donate 10% of their proceeds.
4. Rake-a-thon – sell your services. Devote one day to cleaning up as many yards as you can. Get everyone involved to help and make reservations for those who want the service.
5. 50/50 drawing – sell raffle tickets. At the end, one ticket is drawn and they win 50% of the proceeds.
6. Sell flowers – think Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.
7. Pumpkin sale – this one may be risky because you’ll have to buy the pumpkins upfront. Try taking orders to minimize your risk.
8. Tailgate party – grill hotdogs, hamburgers, and bratwursts to sell. Add in chips and a drink for some extra funds.
9. Corn maze or obstacle course – you can sell tickets AND refreshments!
10. Dog wash – you may get soaked and smell like wet dog, but it will be hilarious.
These are just a few of the creative ways you can earn money. There’s no need to sell pizza or candy or do a car wash every year. Mix it up and let your creativity shine.
