When the time comes to start thinking of church fund raising ideas, clearly the thing you're most concerned with is making a decent profit for whatever the church needs. There are many paths to successful church fund raising, but if you get the right church fundraising ideas in mind at the beginning, you can really maximize your profits and have fun in the process.

One of the best church fundraising ideas is the Parade of Magazines fundraiser. Magazines never stop being popular, and with a choice of 80 top magazines (from Glamour to Popular Science and everything in between) at huge discounts off the cover price, it's hard to go wrong with this one. The Parade of Magazines is a pre-sell fundraiser, as well, so it's one of the best church fund raising ideas if you're concerned about putting down money upfront.

Discount cards, like our ever popular pizza fundraiser cards, for example, are great church fund raising ideas if your main worry is maximum profit. Pizza cards sell at a very reasonable price of $10 each, and if you can commit to buying enough cards upfront, then 90% of the profits go directly to the church. And pizza cards are great for your supporters, as well - there's a two-for one pizza deal in it for them, and also advertising for the participating pizza retailer.

Scratch cards are in the same family of card-based church fund raising ideas, but the concept behind them is slightly different. Your supporters will scratch of 2 of 50 covered dots on the card , and the amount they uncover is the amount they are suggested to donate, although they often round their donation up a bit higher. In exchange for their generosity, they get a page of valuable coupons to keep. There are quite a few high-profit church fund raising ideas like this one, so have a look at our church fundraiser pages for more inspiration.
