Successful fundraising for school trips depends a lot on knowing exactly what your goals are, and exactly what you need to achieve those goals. School trips can be anything from a day at the zoo, to a week in the nation's capital. Understanding the exact depth of the undertaking can be make the difference between whether or not the fundraising for your school trip is a success. Don't leave anything out when making your financial plan, and build in some emergency margins. It's better to have a little money left over at the end of the trip than to run out of money while you're there.
Once you know exactly how much you need to make via fundraising for your school trip, you need to find a fundraising idea that will help you reach that target. Smaller groups can do well with things like scratch cards, which return high profits for a small investment. Larger groups that need more money for a longer trip may want to expand out to something like pretzels, which has a minimum order, but can yield great results for groups with enough selling power to clear the minimum.
