A school fundraiser is a normal part of the school year for kids in any grade. Elementary, middle, and high schools across the land rely on school fundraisers to get much-needed extra money to provide for things the school budget can’t handle. A school fundraiser can really help keep the school’s extra-curricular clubs and groups in operation, and these days that sort of help is becoming essential. And of course, if the students can get something enjoyable out of the fundraiser as well, that’s just the icing on the cake.
It doesn’t take a genius to know which school fundraiser the kids want to do… they want to sell chocolate! Chocolate bar school fundraisers have been around forever, and you might think that the concept has gotten old and tired since the time when you did it back when you were a student. But think again – the entire reason that this tried-and-tested school fundraiser is still around is that it continues to be a consistently good performer, even after all these years. Chocolate is a particularly good choice if you have students who will be selling to other students, and if permission can be arranged for that to happen on school grounds, even better. If you stay with brand names like M&Ms or Hershey’s, that’ll be a sure-fire winner.
If you’re looking for something with a broader scope for potential customers, pizza cards are an excellent school fundraiser solution to please both the kids and the adults. The idea behind the pizza cards is simple – retailers in your area offer a 2-for-1 discount in exchange for the card. The customers who buy the school fundraiser pizza cards get a fantastic discount on pizza, and of course, the school collects the profits from the cards.
