Why Having a Daycare Fundraiser is a Necessity

Daycares, just as many other organizations do, need to raise money to help with day-to-day costs of running the facility. That is why having a daycare fundraiser is a necessity. This is not however what the parents of the children want to hear. Why? Have you ever seen a 2-year-old come up to your front door and ask you to buy a tub of cookie dough? Parents are the ones that are stuck with having to do the fundraiser for their children. With an open mind, they realize the benefits.

One of the main benefits is that it helps to lower their weekly cost. Being that many parents spend more each month on daycare expenses than they do on their car payment, they realize the high expense associated with daycare. This is usually not as organized as you might find a fundraiser being in an elementary school. The order forms are sent home with the children along with a letter explaining what is going on. Many parents find that it is easier to just take the order forms to their workplace. Here they have the freedom to leave the order form in the break room and then after a couple of days, go in and see all the sales that have added up. This will also ease the delivery process for they just have to bring all the items to one place.

Taking care of someone’s child is a huge responsibility and is not trusted to just anyone. By participating in the daycare fundraisers, parents also realize that the money raised allows the daycare to have more money so that they may be able to hire the best caregivers available. It is a business, just like any other, and by having professional daycare workers taking care of children, parents are able to feel more comfortable able where they are leaving their children.

One thing that daycares are offering the parents is the ability to be able to log into the daycare’s website and see their children playing. This equipment is not cheap and without a daycare fundraiser, this viewing might not be possible. When it comes to daycare fundraisers parents should get a big pat on the back. They do all of the selling, in turn allowing the best for their children each and every day.

Coffee and Tea Show Profit

coffee and tea

You might consider selling coffee and tea to raise money. Coffee has been very successful for many types of groups. Your group would sell 10 oz bags of freshly ground coffee for $10 each. There are seven great flavors along with a gift coffee tin. Coffee sales work best in the fall and winter.

What You Should Know

Tea and Coffee fundraisers are very similar to candle fundraisers. You will make a specific profit percentage on every item you sell. For tea and coffee fundraisers you make 40% profit on every item or $4 each.

If you sell less than 150 bags, though, there is a $65 shipping fee which will affect your total profit. Orders of 150 or more bags of coffee or tea will qualify you for free shipping.

With only a one case minimum, this chocolate fundraising product is perfect for small groups.

What You Should Know

Candy fundraising profits are determined based on the number of cases of candy that you sell. The more cases you purchase the lower your cost per case. Below you can take a look at profit charts for each of the two available variety packs:

Auntie Anne’s Pretzel

If you have walked down most malls you have probably smelled Auntie Anne pretzels and thought to yourself I would love to have the Auntie Annes pretzel recipe. You probably can’t get the recipe but you could hold a pretzel fundraiser using their great products.

What You Should Know

Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Fundraisers are one of the few fundraising programs that assure that you will make 50% profit on every pretzel or cinnamon bun kit you sell. You are selling the kits for $16 and your cost is $8.

Remember that you need to purchase both the pretzels and cinnamon buns in full cases. Cases are packed with 6 kits each. So you will need to round both products up or down to full cases quantities.

Shipping is free as long as you sell 10 or more cases. Smaller orders will be assessed a $65 shipping fee.

  • No Upfront Cost
  • Free brochures for your participants
  • Free Shipping

Hockey scratch card

Parents tell us hockey is the most expensive sport for young children to participate in. The equipment costs alone can persuade parents to pursue different options. If you need hockey fundraising ideas or hockey team fundraisers, though, scratch off cards fundraisers are one of the highest, easily managed fundraisers available.

What You Should Know

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. The profits and profit percentages show are based on successfully having all 50 dots scratched off on your scratch card:

Profit and Cost

  • In-hand products
  • Free shipping
  • Start in under a minute
Cards Bought Cost Per Card Each Card Raises Your Profit $ Your Profit %
100 $10.00 $100.00 $9,000 90%
25 $12.00 $100.00 $2,200 88%
10 $15.00 $100.00 $850 85%
1 min. $30.00 $100.00 $70 70%
