Thinking About Private School Fundraising

Private school fundraising is a great way to get the students at your school involved in a good cause, and at the same time raise money which can go toward upgrades for the school or could simply go as a donation to a local charity.

Getting the students involved in private school fundraising will give them the opportunity to work together as a unit and support their school, and the support and attention your private school fundraising effort earns will reflect well on the school itself. The best way to pull off a truly successful private school fundraiser is by building a team of students who will act as a planning committee for the effort. You may want to gather around five or six eager students to help out in the planning of your fundraiser, and giving each one an individual role to be carried out.

Although you will be assigning these roles for your team, it is still your job to make sure that things go without a hitch and that your team knows what they are doing. The students in your planning committee will probably have a good idea of what the other students would like to see in their private school fundraising, so you may like to let them decide on the core idea of your fundraiser.

For your private school fundraising needs, why not consider going with one of our great fundraiser products packages. We have a large variety of these for use in your private school fundraising events, and we will make sure that your fundraising products are sent out quickly to fulfill orders that your team has taken. Some of the packages that we provide include Calendar Fundraisers, Go Green Earth Friendly Fundraisers and Seasonal Shoppers Fundraisers. Feel free to take a look at all of our product ranges for more information.

Elementary school scratch card

Virtually every student will experience an elementary school fundraiser before reaching the 6th grade. So much is paid for with elementary school fundraising efforts that are not covered by school budgets. If you need a high-profit fundraiser, take a look at our scratch card fundraisers. Each participant can raise $100 using just one card.

Here is an example of the coupon page you give to the people as a “Thank You” for participating. You can also create a custom coupon hand out with your town’s unique businesses.

As you can see from the profit chart below the lowest profit percentage you will make from using scratch cards for fundraisers is 70%. There are, however, price breaks that can increase your profit percentage. The more cards you purchase the higher your profit potential for each card.
