High school soccer playerBeef Jerky Fundraising Suggestions & Tips

  • Use a tracking sheet to keep track of your inventory. Have your students provide their contact information and # of items they’re taking with them to sell.
  • Only issue more product after students have brought back the money from the first round.
  • Plan your fundraiser so you’re not selling a similar product at the same time as another competing group.
  • It may be easier for students to break the sale down and establish a daily item goal.
  • Remind students to tell people what group they represent and why they’re raising money.
  • Make sure your students have money collection envelopes.
  • Professionalism matters. Be sure they remember to thank people for their order, regardless of the outcome.
More Beef Jerky Fundraiser Ideas

When you think “school fundraiser” you might go straight to cookies or chocolate bars. But there are other snacks worth considering as a niche and exciting alternative.

Beef jerky is one that almost everyone recognizes, and many wouldn’t expect. Yet it's one of the most popular snack items in the USA, which means a beef jerky sale will have wide appeal.

The word “jerky” originates from the Native American word “Ch’arki'' which means dried meat. It was a method of preserving meat for longer amounts of time. The word eventually blended with Spanish influence until arriving at “Charqui''. When pronounced with the Native American’s accent, it sounded like modern day jerky.

It became popular among settlers, then cowboys when spices were added for flavor. Because of its long shelf life, jerky stuck around. Today it takes in about $2.8 billion nationwide. With a food this popular, selling beef jerky will be a smashing success.

Beef jerky is an excellent choice for several reasons. It's appealing, it has health benefits, and it's convenient. As a staple snack that comes in an array of sizes and flavors, kids are sure to want more than one. Parents love it as an alternative to other processed handheld snacks. Beef jerky is high in protein, low in sugar, and contains no MSG.

The limited amount of ingredients ensure you have a much better idea of what your kids are consuming. On top of it all, beef jerky isn't messy, making it perfect for a lunchbox addition or an after school snack.

Another good option for a beef jerky sale is during sporting events, like soccer or kickball. The salt content stimulates thirst and water retention during physical activity. And the protein will promote healthy muscle growth. Beef jerky is a small and fast snack that can stay ready on the sidelines for bites between plays.

The most well-known beef jerky comes in sticks. One case of 3 oz. Beef Sticks contains 144 items, and at a suggested selling price of $2 a bag, you’ll make $100 per case!

If you’re not already convinced beef sticks are the perfect snack for your next fundraiser, try our beef jerky products. Choose between 3 popular classic flavors including original, teriyaki, or hot & spicy. Or go in a completely new direction that offers a more sophisticated snacking experience like our Cowboy Peppered, Garlic Ginger or Orange Honey Teriyaki. Nobody makes beef jerky quite like People’s Choice, which is why they've been around for over 90 years, and 4 generations!

If you’re not sure how many cases to order, we have a tool that will help calculate an approximate amount for your group. Keep in mind that shipping is free, so ordering more if you need it is hassle-free.
