If someone in your family is involved in cheerleading, then you already know that things can get expensive quickly. Uniforms, equipment, and travel don't come for free, and someone has to foot the bill for all that. Unfortunately, with school funding being in such a dismal state, these days cheerleading fundraising has to come to the rescue and fill in where school budgets leave off. This can seem scary, but cheerleading fundraising is actually a lot of fun, and it give you the opportunity to get involved with the squad.

You're probably wondering what kind of cheerleading fundraiser you should do, and really the possibilities are endless. Depending on the size of your team and their selling power, you could go for one of the classic brochure-based fundraisers. These work really well as cheerleading fundraisers for older kids, because there are some things for them to keep track of with collecting the money and filling out the order forms, but even younger kids can do this kind of cheerleading fundraising with some supervision.

Chocolate bars are another favorite cheerleading fundraising activity that has withstood the test of time. This type of cheerleading fundraising can work well for any group, and of course if the kids will be selling to their fellow students, that will turn it into a cheerleading fundraising success almost immediately. If you can get permission for the kids to do their cheerleading fundraising on school grounds during lunch periods, that is certainly a winning combination.

If you want to get away from the more traditional cheerleading fundraising ideas and do something completely new and different, why not try something like temporary tattoos? While this may not sound so appealing to you, rest assured the kids love temporary tattoos, and as a cheerleading fundraising idea it can be something different as well as a way to make some extra money for the squad.
