Years ago no one ever considered homeschool fundraisers.

But that’s changed. More and more people are choosing to home school their children.

And more and more home school associations are providing opportunities previously only available in public or private schools to homeschoolers.

All of that means that now more than ever there is an ever growing need for solid homeschool fundraisers.

3 Things to Consider

So we would like to share 3 things to consider when choosing your homeschool fundraiser:

#1: The size of your group

There are lots of fundraising ideas that simply work better for larger groups.

So before you choose a fundraiser you should consider how many people are in your group and whether there are any other groups out there that you might combine efforts with to increase the number of sellers you will have.

Remember that you can earn higher profit margins when you reach certain sales levels with some fundraising products. Others offer free shipping when you reach a minimum.

Obviously the more sellers you have the more likely you will be to qualify for higher profits.

#2 Do You Need a No Upfront Cost Option?

There are some fundraising products like candy or discount cards that require you to purchase your products in advance so you have them on hand to sell.

No Upfront Costs

If you decide you want to consider some no upfront cost options you might look at these 3 options:

1. A Cookie Dough Fundraiser: Cookie dough became a viable fundraiser when minimums were reduced making it possible for teams to use this program. Cookie dough is such a natural fundraising product so we suggest you consider any of the four no cost options in our cookie dough section.

2. A Snackin in the USA: This program works well for any group. Your students will sell 24 extremely popular bags of snack foods for $7. You’ll make 50% profit and since there is no minimum smaller teams can use this option.

3. A Magic Melts Fundraiser: Magic Melts have become one of our top fundraisers overall so we want to make sure all groups consider it. The melts are highly scented fragrance bars that you use in candle warmers instead of burning candles. There are a few national brands that are extremely popular. We feel like our Magic Melts are better than those products as far as quality is concerned but our price is wonderful. You’ll sell a package of melts for $4 and still make 50% profit. There’s no minimum and you can qualify for free shipping if you sell 150 or more packages.

#3 How Much Money Do You Really Need to Raise?

Before you get started or choose a specific fundraiser we strongly suggest you figure out exactly how much money you rally need to raise.

Money

It helps in so many ways to have a clear understanding of exactly how much money you are trying to raise.

Once you have set your financial target your students will have an idea of what is required of them. You definitely want to divide the total you need to raise by the number of participants so that you can also set an individual financial goal.

Finally, once you know how much money you need to raise it will help you narrow down the list of homeschool fundraising ideas available to you.

More Information

Home School Fundraising is probably one of the easiest of any school fundraising campaigns if for no other reason than the parent involvement with homeschoolers.

Participation levels will excced those typcically seen with elementary school fundraisers. Homeschoolers know they will directly benefit from the fundraiser and are typically glad to help out.

So how do you go about meeting your fundraising goals with a home school group?

Choose a fundraiser they understand and believe in. If you can find a product or program the students really like they will be more likely to word hard at it.

Make sure you keep the students aware of the campaign well in advance of the actual home school fundraising. Then remind them about the fundraiser as often as possible while the fundraiser is going on. Do not depend on them to remember or even think about the fundraiser. You need to keep reminding them and encouraging them.
