Coming Up with a Maximum Profit Church Fundraising Idea

When your church needs extra money and you want to start thinking of a church fundraising idea, clearly the thing you’re most concerned with is profit and how quickly you can reach the goal you have set for yourself. There are many paths to coming up with a church fundraising idea, and once you get the hang of what you’re doing, you can really maximize your profits and enjoy the benefits of church fundraising.

One slightly different idea is the Parade of Magazines fundraiser. Magazines are still very popular both in homes and in offices, so it’s pretty easy to find supporters with a church fundraising idea like this. The Parade of Magazines is a brochure-based, as well, so it’s a great church fundraiser if you’re concerned about down payments or budget requirements, as there’s no initial money required from you.

A card-based church fundraising idea, like our popular pizza fundraising cards, is a great idea if your main worry is maximum profit. Pizza cards sell at a very reasonable price of $10 each and depending on how many you think you can sell, up to 90% of the profits go directly to the church. And pizza cards are nice for your supporters, as well – there’s a two-for-one pizza deal, which everyone knows is a great bargain.

Scratch cards are another card-based church fundraising idea, but the concept behind them is slightly different. Your supporters will scratch of 2 of 50 covered dots on the card (just like a regular scratch card), and the amount they uncover is the amount they are suggested to donate, though many people will round their donation up. Your supporters will receive a sheet of coupons as a thank-you gesture. Again, the profits can be up to 90% for a church fundraising idea like this one, which makes them both fun and profitable.

Coffee and Tea Show Profit

You might consider selling coffee and tea to raise money. Coffee has been very successful for many types of groups. Your group would sell 10 oz bags of freshly ground coffee for $10 each. There are seven great flavors along with a gift coffee tin. Coffee sales work best in the fall and winter.

What You Should Know

Tea and Coffee fundraisers are very similar to candle fundraisers. You will make a specific profit percentage on every item you sell. For tea and coffee fundraisers you make 40% profit on every item or $4 each.

If you sell less than 150 bags, though, there is a $65 shipping fee which will affect your total profit. Orders of 150 or more bags of coffee or tea will qualify you for free shipping.

There are a lot of groups that need to raise money and want a creative fundraising idea. The problem for many is they want something different for their group. Scratch card fundraisers with our Patriotic card are perfect for scouts, veteran groups, or any other patriotic group looking for high profit, low-risk unique fundraising ideas.
