School Fund Raising

School fundraising programs are an important part of providing revenue for extracurricular activities that wouldn't normally be part of a school budget. There are many different types of fundraising ideas, but the unusual ideas are more interesting and have higher potential for success. Here are some unique school fundraising ideas that may just work for you.

Invest in ready-made cookie dough that students of all ages can just pop in the oven, bake, and sell. This is a great group activity that will encourage kids and teenagers to work together. The profit is large because each cookie can be sold for nearly double its price. Best of all, the ready-made dough comes in all sorts of flavors to suit every buyer?s taste. Keep your cookie enticing with yummy varieties such as chocolate, peanut butter, and oatmeal raisin.

Another way to raise money and beautify your community at the same time is to sell flower bulbs such as tulips, daffodils, orchids, strawberry hanging kits or windflowers. Students can sell bulbs for $5 to $20, depending on the flower breed. This type of fundraising project is perfect for spring and fall. The bulbs should be purchased from a reputable supplier so they are guaranteed to grow and bloom, and make sure they agree to replace problematic bulbs.

Many restaurants (especially pizza parlors) agree to partner-up with schools for fundraising activities by way of discount cards. Your school can sell the discount cards for a reasonable price, and buyers of the cards then get discounts in the restaurants when they dine in. Choose a national food chain if you have the connections. Discount cards for big establishments like that are much easier to sell.

Almost 165 million people in the United States alone drink coffee. Sell gourmet beans or ready-to-drink to them and your school can raise thousands. Vary your coffee flavours to create interest. This fundraising project is ideal for fall as well as the holiday season.
