School Fundraising is an easy and successful fundraising idea for schools to raise funds to maintain future school projects. Concisely, School Fundraising works by raising "cash back" funds for schools. Schools, whether public or private, appear to be in everlasting need of extra money. Children are frequently sent home with flyers to sell bells, books and candles, popcorn and candy, stuffed animals and calendars. It appears to be a never-ending pageant of material to sell.
One of the easiest thoughts for school fundraising is the car wash. Held in warm climate, these are typically popular and easy and have a high profit margin. Parents and children can carry their own buckets, rags, soap and hoses from home.
The investment for goods is generally small, and children of all ages can do great at a car wash. They can clean windshields, scrub tires or wash vehicles with the hosepipe. Clean-up is simple too, since the parking group just needs spraying down and all cleaning supplies must be taken away.
Another good thought for school fundraising is a bake sale. This is an effortless idea, since parents can bake or buy stuff for the sale and can set their own prices according to how much they have invested in it. Participants are requested to compute how much money they would usually spend on ingredients to bake something or on store bought items, or how much they would be ready to pay for a baked item, and to contribute that amount in cash to the school. The benefit is that busy parents don’t have to bake anything, and everything the school gets is clean profit. Participants may be given tiny paper cupcakes with “Thank you from XXXX School” written on them, as acknowledgement of their contribution.
Easy school fundraising may also be achieved through a “student auction.” This is generally best for small schools or for a single class where the parents know all the other parents. Students set up and the parents bid on the student’s services for a specific job, such as trimming the lawn, painting shutters, doing laundry or other unusual jobs.
A computer repair fair is another easy method of school fundraising, particularly for high school students. Many people don’t know how to do repair their computers, but many students are familiar enough to make fundamental repairs. Clients can either carry their computers to the school for repair or make an appointment for a student/parent or student/teacher team to approach to their homes. The clients can be charged a flat fee, and most of the profit goes to the school.
