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.
