7 School Fundraising Options To Consider

Posted by Hunter Easton on November 26th, 2020

Organizing a fundraiser, whether it be a cookie dough fundraiser or any other type, is a good way to earn money for your school. Even though it can be a lot of work, it can greatly benefit your school if planned and executed properly. If you have been tasked to head a fundraising campaign for your school and are looking for school fundraising ideas, below are seven school fundraisers you might want to consider:

1. Bake sale

A bake sale is probably one of the most popular school fundraising ideas out there. If you organize a cookie dough fundraiser, you will need to offer a wide range of baked goods for sale in order to achieve your profit target. You can work with your fellow students or ask for the help of teachers and parents to make good quality brownies, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, and other baked goods that will attract buyers.

2. Car wash

A car wash event is another tried-and-tested fundraising option that can get you the funds you need. It can be held in your school’s parking lot where there is enough space for multiple vehicles to be parked and washed. Make sure that you have easy access to a water system and that you have the necessary supplies such as buckets, hoses, washcloths, sponges, and soap.

3. Babysitting

If you love kids, why not throw a babysitting fundraising event? Find other volunteers who have experience in babysitting and can commit their time to the fundraising event. In your community, you can surely find many parents that need babysitters to watch their kids while they work overtime or enjoy a night out.

4. Yard sale

There are a wide variety of items that you can sell at a yard sale. Things like used clothes, furniture, jewelry, kitchenware, sports equipment, artwork, vintage video games, old books, and electronics can bring in the funds you need. Work together with other students, your teachers, and your parents to find items that can be donated for the sale.

5. Carnival

This is one of those options for school fundraisers that requires collaborating with several groups in order to be successful. You can gather people from the different clubs and organizations in your school to decide on what attractions to feature and who should be in charge of the different activities and booths.

6. Karaoke

Have fun while raising money by organizing a karaoke fundraiser. For this event you will need a venue such as a large classroom, the gym, or a conference hall in your school, and access to some karaoke equipment. Make sure you have a diverse selection of songs ready so that everyone can sing and dance to their favorite tunes. To raise money, you can sell tickets to anyone who wants to take part in the event.

7. Treasure hunt

Whether small- or large-scale, a treasure hunt is a good event for bringing friends and families together. Simply hide items related to your school such as school badges, banners, and logos, around the school grounds for people to find. You can charge an admission or participation fee to generate money and offer a small prize to the winning team.
