The sales representatives were available to answer all my questions. The only complaint is that the "donation" option was not explained. I was very disappointed to find out after the sale ended that 30% of all donations went to your company. This needs to be clearly explained to each client.

High school students next to lockersHow Do High School Fundraisers Work?

Of the 17 million U.S. high school students, about 90% are doing extracurricular activities.

Everyone's looking for more creative high school fundraising ideas. That's where we come in. With over 100 best-selling products, you'll find the perfect fundraiser for your group.

Sponsors can either have their students take orders out of a brochure or sell an “in hand” product.

Brochure fundraising requires us to ship supplies to your group before you start. You'll receive brochures, order forms, prize flyers, and money collection envelopes.

Distribute these items at your kickoff meeting to the group. Instruct students to collect orders by showing their brochure to people they know.

After 2 weeks of selling, send us your order forms for processing. We'll send you a sales report along with your invoice and schedule your delivery date.

Each high school student receives an individually-boxed order to make distribution simple.

Or, if you decide to sell the product up front, submit a purchase order. Once we ship the product, distribute it to your students with a deadline date to return the money. Invoices are due within 15 days after receiving the product.

More High School Fundraising Ideas

High school is all about school spirit. Capitalizing on this enthusiasm is where you’ll find the most profit in your fundraiser.

No matter what product you choose, you’ll be able to create something that's simple and profitable. You want to sell a product that generates big wins for your organization.

One of the best times to promote your sale is during a kickoff meeting for a student organization. Especially one where you’re setting big goals for the year. Many students will look forward to the chance to contribute to their group’s cause.

Consider forming fundraising committees with a mix of student and parent volunteers. This can enhance your level of engagement, and help get fundraiser buy-in. These students can be vital ambassadors for your organization’s fundraiser.

Valentine’s Day is a perfect opportunity for a high school fundraiser. We offer several high school fundraising ideas, like Popcornopolis®, or Yummy Hearts Lollipops. Customers can choose from 6 popcorn flavors that come pre-wrapped in bouquet-style arrangements.

A fun way to sell these would be to include Valentine’s Day cards with each purchase. This makes a quick and easy gift for that special sweetheart! This is an elevated take on Valentine Candy-Grams. Plan to start this fundraiser in early January in time for a pre-Valentine’s Day delivery. Check out high school selling success secrets

Pizza is the perfect item to sell to parents and teachers. Most high school student have heated up a pizza after school.

For classic high school fundraising ideas, 'Gift Collection' is a great option. With homewares and kitchen gadgets, it's ideal to whip out at a family gathering or dinner party. Or even at the office break room for busy executives without time to shop.

Some brochures also offer magazine subscriptions. Does anyone you know work at a doctor’s office or somewhere with a long wait? Try selling those subscriptions that regularly need updating. Maybe even bring your brochure along to your next teeth cleaning!

Older students never outgrow enticing prizes, and our prize programs are attention getters. You can challenge high school students with a 'Wear Your Spirit' prize program. This program creates an atmosphere charged with energy and school pride. Students can show off their success.

High schoolers will also love prizes in the form of cash. With our cash prize programs, the more they sell, the more cash they’re awarded (and the school makes a great profit, too!).

Your students can win up to $200 if they reach the highest level of the 'Master Blaster' prize program! And we'll award an extra $25 to the student who happens to be the first day top seller.
