If you are the lucky one organizing the fundraising for your church's youth group, obviously you want to ensure the highest profits possible. But you also want everyone to enjoy participating in the activity you've chosen, and to be enthusiastic about their fundraiser.

So what exactly do you need to do to find youth group fundraising ideas that will fill in all these blanks?

There are a lot of different ways you can go about this, to tell the truth. In reality, pretty much any type of fundraiser can be a success for you and your team if you organize it in the right way. For example, if your youth group is particularly small, you definitely don't want to choose fundraising ideas with large minimum orders, or shipping charges that will significantly reduce your profit margins.

You always need to think about your supporters when coming up with youth fundraising ideas. The kids may think that they want to sell things at school, to their fellow students, or to their friends. If this is the case, you might want to choose activities or products that would appeal more to younger people. Chocolate bar fundraisers are a great idea, but so are lollipops and even Smencils. It just depends on what you monetary goals are, as to which kinds of youth group fundraising ideas you will choose.

If you expect that your fundraising team will be heading out into neighborhoods and appealing to the more general public, perhaps something like a catalog fundraiser would work better for you. It only takes a small amount of time and ingenuity to work out which youth group fundraising ideas would be best for the fundraising team you have on hand. A quick look through our pages of fundraisers will help show you exactly what sorts of activities and products would work best for your group.
