Choosing the right program for your private school fundraiser can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. There are so many great fundraisers ? how do you pick just one? The best way to decide which fundraiser is to look at the type of group you have, and go from there.

Whole School: If the program you choose turns into a school-wide fundraiser, then think big! Pick a fundraiser with high minimums that you would not be able to do with a smaller group. The Auntie Anne?s Pretzels fundraiser is a great choice for a school-wide private school fund raiser. Because there are so many people who will be participating, each person is responsible for selling fewer items ? making it easier on everyone.

Medium-Sized Group: Perhaps it is just the graduating class that is doing a fundraiser. No problem! Any number of the cookie dough fundraisers would work well for a medium-sized group. Students just pre-sell the cookie dough, turn in the orders, and then pass out all the products once the delivery arrives. It is a very simple program, and one that everyone enjoys.

Small Group: What will work best when the science club needs to raise money for a field trip? Scratch cards are a great program for small groups. Each card raises $100 when it is complete, and those who help out end up with a coupon sheet that saves them over $150 ? everyone wins!

So keep these things in mind the next time your group is looking into fundraising for private schools.
