You are hosting a fundraising event for your school. Congratulations! Events like carnivals, walk-a-thons, and chili cook-offs not only have earning power but are great for getting the community involved with your school. Here we have additional ideas for your school fundraising event to make the most of your captive audience, who are ready, willing, and able to support your cause.
First of all, charge an entrance fee. Attendees expect to pay a cover charge for charitable events. Concessions are a fundamental part of any event, so stock yours with fundraising products. Welch’s Fruit Snacks, Jack Link’s Beef Sticks, and $2 Chocolatiers Bars will keep your guests energized. Go for a traditional money-maker by adding a baked goods table. Use our Better Baking mixes to whip up the goodies and have a brochure available for folks to purchase their own. Using the finished product to sell the mixes is a foolproof technique.
Set up a table with fundraising catalogs for folks to browse and buy products. The benefit here is folks have the freedom to shop without getting stuck having to carry stuff around all day. More highly effective cash collection ideas for a school fundraising event are scratch cards. Scratch cards are handy because fundraising team members can carry them around through the crowd,
There are plenty of ideas for school fundraising events that cost little or no money to execute. Have the school artists do face painting or make caricatures. Have a hula hoop contest and charge a small entry fee. Your school fundraising event is a perfect place for Pie the Principal, other staff members. Approach local businesses for donations such as beverages, give-aways, or supplies. Ask a local DJ to donate their time to set the fun, festive mood with great music.
As you can see, there’s no limit to the supplementary ideas for school fundraising events. It makes sense to maximize profits as much as you possibly can. Visitors are already in the mindset to spend money, so provide plenty of ways to do that. Give the people attending your school fundraising event every opportunity to help your school reach its goals.
