When your church needs extra money and you want to start thinking of a church fundraising idea, clearly the thing you're most concerned with is profit and how quickly you can reach the goal you have set for yourself. There are many paths to coming up with a church fundraising idea, and once you get the hang of what you're doing, you can really maximize your profits and enjoy the benefits of church fundraising.

One slightly different idea is the Parade of Magazines fundraiser. Magazines are still very popular both in homes and in offices, so it's pretty easy to find supporters with a church fundraising idea like this. The Parade of Magazines is a brochure-based, as well, so it's a great church fundraiser if you're concerned about down payments or budget requirements, as there's no initial money required from you.

A card-based church fundraising idea, like our popular pizza fundraising cards, is a great idea if your main worry is maximum profit. Pizza cards sell at a very reasonable price of $10 each, and depending on how many you think you can sell, up to 90% of the profits go directly to the church. And pizza cards are nice for your supporters, as well - there's a two-for one pizza deal, which everyone knows is a great bargain.

Scratch cards are another card-based church fundraising idea, but the concept behind them is slightly different. Your supporters will scratch of 2 of 50 covered dots on the card (just like a regular scratch card), and the amount they uncover is the amount they are suggested to donate, though many people will round their donation up. Your supporters will receive a sheet of coupons as a thank-you gesture. Again, the profits can be up to 90% for a church fundraising idea like this one, which makes them both fun and profitable.
