TOP FIVE SCHOOL FUNDRAISING IDEAS
Schools often look for ways to make money. Sometimes, new playground equipment is needed, or perhaps band equipment and uniforms, it might be that football team is in need of uniforms, or that debate team needs money to travel to a meet. Fundraising is quite common and an excellent way to make money required while teaching students about good sales and marketing, as well as money management. You will also see schools using fundraising to help other people. For example, during Tsunami, schools all around country joined efforts to raise money that could be used for medicine, food, clothing, and other needs. As you will discover in this article, there are many innovative ways of making money.
With discount cards, you can offer one particular type or a book that consists of several different cards. For example, three of favorites are shopping cards, pizza cards, and prepaid phone cards. With shopping card, you would choose from local and national merchants that provide nice savings at retail shops, grocery stores, florists, etc. For pizza card, this is just what it sounds, a card that would offer a discount off price of food sold at major chain pizza restaurants. Many of these cards offer limited use but for a mere $10, person might receive a discount 20 times, making this a real bargain. Finally, prepaid phone cards are always a great fundraising option, used by families that live across country from one another or for college students. For this type of card, you can choose from a number of denominations of $10, $20, $24, and even $30.
The second school fundraising idea is something just about everyone loves – candy. Most often, candy sales are associated with school clubs, sports groups, music departments, and church youth groups. Because this is a small dollar item, they sell well but a good marketing plan to increase sales must also be developed and implemented. Ideally, find low-priced candy suppliers, ones that support school fundraising projects, choose type or types of candy you want to sell, determine your price, and then get started selling.
