Are you looking for rewarding, profitable and successful School Fundraising Ideas?
Then get ready for a super list of top quality, profitable, rewarding, and tried and tested fundraisers for Schools.
You're absolutely going to love some of these ideas!!!
I'd highly recommend you also take time to look through the Recommended Resources further down the page.
These resources will help you succeed with many of your school fundraising campaigns!
These School Fundraising Ideas are broken down into the following sections...
1. Pledge Events like a Walkathon
Pledge events hold HUGE potential for a couple of awesome reasons...
Let's do some conservative math: If you recruit 100 walkers, and they each take $5/Mile pledges from 10 people, and they walk 5 Miles each - You'll raise $25,000 purely from your participants efforts.
It's cumulative fundraising. The more participants you recruit, the more pledges they acquire, the more your funds raised grows exponentially!
I highly recommend you read through these Pledge/Walkathon manuals, guides, and form templates for more info on running successful Pledge Events.
2. Apparel Fundraising
Quite simply all Schools should be using Branded Apparel for fundraising. It raises funds and promotes your School at the same time. Also look into using a FREE online Apparel Store.
