What Our Customers Say
Perfect! Great sales. Amazing!
Our overall experience was smooth and pleasant. The service and product quality was very good.
The School Fundraising Guidebook provided by Big Fundraising Ideas is a life saver. As a full-time school district employee with many hats to wear, this guide’s efficiency helps our fundraising run on its own. The guide includes everything needed for a successful fundraiser. I enjoy the convenience of pulling out pre-made forms; making copies and sending them home with the students. It is an easy to follow, self explanatory manual that makes fundraising the successful task I didn’t mind taking on. This guide takes you that extra mile to meet your organizations needs, with little effort by following the time-line and instructions included. Many thanks to those who created this time saving guide which helps us achieve our goals.
The overall service that we received from Big Fundraising Ideas was very good and we will recommend them to others who might need a fundraiser.
Our Big Event School Fundraiser ran smoothly from beginning to end. The overall service that we received was exceptional and I have already referred you to another school in our district.
I don't think Big Fundraising Ideas could have handled this situation better. There were never any rosy promises, but they were able to get us out of the penalty for being under our goal with the cookie company. I guess somebody ate this cost somewhere. I will definitely consider Big Fundraising Ideas again, hopefully under better circumstances next time.
Everything ran smoothly with Big Fundraising Ideas. Step by step instructions were great. Thank you!

Questions About Elementary School Fundraisers
Consider a larger variety brochure that also offers online products.
Begin selling with no upfront costs. Order either brochure supplies or a product to sell.
No. Our prizes motivate students to sell and we offer them at no cost.
It’s important to set clear goals, promote your sale, and to use creative prize incentives.
They pay for supplemental needs like educational field trips and new playground equipment.
Need to raise money for your elementary school? You’re in the right spot! Our products and prizes focus on having fun while fundraising for a good cause.
You may be fundraising for school supplies or a class field trip. Regardless, our programs will instill a sense of community and motivate your students.
Elementary school fundraisers often need to be simple and convenient. Variety brochures are effective, but selling a single item might make more sense.
For example, popcorn is a perfect on-the-go snack that racks up sales and has universal appeal. It's also an easy seller at outdoor events such as field days, soccer games, or after school programs. These are weekly occurrences for elementary schools.
America’s Variety Candy Bars sell for one dollar each. They even feature a money-themed design on the packaging! This makes it easy for elementary school kids who may only have a dollar on them. And they’re sold at a price point that won’t break the bank.
Beef Sticks are another easy seller. Catch kids after school and give them a snack for the bus ride home!
If you want something with a lot of wrapping paper, try our Merry Gift Wrap fundraiser. With over 80 heavy-duty and reversible papers, the gift-wrapping options are endless.
You can also offer high-quality gadgets that are handy for those around the house chores. This is where the ‘CW Home’ catalog comes in. Your buyers can get all their holiday shopping done with one fundraising event.
One of our favorite items in the ‘CW Home’ brochure is the Snap Lid Storage Set. Perfect for storing those leftovers.
Still other options include the Gourmet Pies or Ultimate Cookie Collection. People rely on these yearly fundraisers to stock up for holiday gatherings.
For your elementary school fundraiser, consider which prize program best motivates your sellers. Prizes are a good way to incentivize kids and create healthy competition. Teaching students to work individually and collectively toward a money goal is important. Learn why financial literacy is important for elementary school students.
Once students find out their friends sold enough to get a cool prize, they’ll start making their own sales! With our traditional prize program, the more items you sell, the more prizes you receive.
But when it comes to elementary school prize programs, the Big Event Super Party takes the cake. With just 8 items sold, any student can join in on the fun of an entire inflatable playground!
There are higher prizes for bigger sellers here too - sell 54 items or more and you get 30 seconds in the money machine. Even parents will be jealous of that one.
The best elementary school fundraising ideas are always focused on maximizing excitement. High energy will be key to keeping your students engaged.
