Top Preschool Fundraising Ideas

If you’re organizing this year’s preschool fundraiser, you’ve probably already looked at some fundraising ideas for preschool. This may be a bit disheartening at first because sometimes fundraisers can appear to be about things like chocolate, or cookie dough. But fundraising isn’t all about fatty snacks, so if you’re looking for fundraising ideas that will send a more healthy message to your preschoolers, we’ve got you covered.

First of all, a fundraiser doesn’t have to be about snacks at all. In fact, we have many fundraising ideas for preschool that don’t involve eating. Scratch cards are a very popular fundraiser, and they’re perfect for preschools because they’re easy for the older preschool kids to carry themselves, so they really feel like they’re a part of their preschool fundraiser. You could also go with a catalog fundraiser, like flower bulbs or our green fundraiser. Both have very high success rates and are fantastic fundraising ideas for preschool.

If you do like the idea of snacks, however, why not try something like Welch’s Fruit Snacks? They’re a fantastic alternative to regular sweets because they’re fat-free and healthier than other snacks, which makes them a perfect idea for a preschool fundraiser. Most parents would probably feel a lot more comfortable with helping their kids sell these than selling candy or cookie dough, and the snacks are perfect for kids and adults alike. If you’re looking for a fool-proof fundraising idea for preschool, it’s hard to go wrong with something like that.

Any of these fundraising ideas for preschool can be done in conjunction with a larger fundraiser, like a fun walk, for example. You can set up booths or tables at the site of the start line, and people can do a little shopping while they’re waiting around. For ideas on maximizing fundraisers with other fundraisers, be sure to check out our suggestions for supplemental fundraisers, or ask your fundraising consultant if you still have questions about fundraising ideas for preschool.
