Chocolate bars, even after all these years, are still one of our top-performing fundraising ideas. There a simple reason behind this, and you've probably already guessed it: people love chocolate, and if you make it available to them, they'll buy it. This is great news for a People to People fundraising team, because with chocolate bars selling at one dollar per bar, you're bound to have a virtually unlimited amount of customers who would go for a deal like that. And shipping is free on the chocolate bars, which takes some of the pressure off you.
Pizza cards are another very useful way to help fund a People to People trip, and if you can commit to selling a large number of them (more than 1,000 cards), the profits can be huge. Pizza cards sell for $10 each, and 90% of the profit goes directly toward your People to People trip fund. The pizza cards are a great deal for the people buying them, too - they get a great two-for-one pizza deal from a local pizza merchant. Everyone comes out ahead with a fundraising activity like this one.
Scratch cards are yet another popular fundraising activity for People to People student ambassadors. People scratch off 2 of 50 covered dots on the card, and whatever amounts they reveal, they give that amount in a donation to your trip fund. There's no ordering products and waiting for them to be delivered, no complications - just fun and profit, the two most important aspects of People to People fundraising.
