Fundraising Ideas to get your class involved in. If you would like more ideas or something more custom to your school and classroom, please contact Michael D. Atwell at firstname.lastname@example.org or (727)441-1790 x237.
Dog Wash: Always a success especially when it's close to a dog park.
Car Wash: Except a donation for washing the outside of a car.
Lemonade Stand: Have the kids make lemonade, set up a stand somewhere and sell each cup full of lemonade.
Friendship Bracelets: Have the kids make friendship bracelets or jewelry and then sell them.
Ice Cream Social: Plan to hold a social at school. Ask for donations from all who attend.
Jeans Day: Students pay a designated amount to wear jeans on a Friday.
Popcorn Sale: Popcorn always smells so yummy. Pop and sell at school.
Hat Day: For a $1 donation, students can be allowed to wear hats to school/office. Encourage wacky hat day but get permission first.
Questions for a buck: Raise money by having a teacher, who was constantly being asked questions, charge $1 for each question for a designated time period.
Penny Drive: Students can collect loose change and bring it to class. The class with the most change can win a prize (like a Pizza Party).
Sing-a-Song: A business or school allows kids to stand in front and they have to sing a song for every donation.
Store Receipts: Talk to a local store and ask if you collect receipts of folks who are coming to raise money if they will donate back 2-5%.
Halloween Insurance: Have a "Volunteer Claims Team" and create forms to insure a clean yard, car, windows, etc. the day after Halloween. Have a phone number be the hotline to call it in and report a mess. Charge $10 for the service.
Playground Dance: Pledge per hour.
Jello Eating Contest:
*If Wal-Mart lets you fundraise in their parking lot(there is always a waiting list) they will double your money up to $500
