But how do you go about choosing the right fundraising idea for your youth ministry group? There isn't a correct answer to this, but once you start learning about all the options you have at your disposal, you can make an informed decision about which way you want to take this.
Many youth fundraisers have done very well with ideas based around food, and we have food fundraisers that will work well no matter how large or small your fundraising team is. Pretzels, chocolate, cookie dough, and gourmet snacks are all possibilities, and you can learn the details of each idea on our youth ministry fundraisers pages. After you see the different requirements and benefits of each type of product, it will be much easier for you to decide which idea you want to tackle.
Many groups like the idea of taking their fundraiser and turning it into a yearly tradition, something that the kids and the community can look forward to equally. Discount cards are a great way to start building this tradition, and it gets local merchants involved, as well. Your supporters get great discounts from local shops, the shops get free advertising and increased business, and the youth ministry can make up to 90% profit from card-based youth ministry fundraisers. You will have to help get shops signed up to participate, or if you'd prefer that we do that part for you, that can be arranged, also. Most businesses are happy to help out anything that has to do with kids, and if they get some extra business as a result, even better.
