What Our Customers Say
This was a great experience for my group and we will definitely be working with you all again. We received the delivery and there are a few pairs missing; I believe it’s only 7.
Super helpful staff, all questions answered immediately, simple to coordinate and execute.
The big fundraising ideas team was very responsive.
The only negative response we received from potential customers was the cost of shipping which amounted for the loss of approximately 20-25 orders.
It was pretty simple and easy to set up and the people who emailed back and forth were very helpful and quick. We haven't received our fundraising payout just yet but I expect it to arrive soon.
It worked great, we hit our goal of making $1000 for the class of 2023.
First your Popcornopolis is delicious. Our Fundraiser was all virtual as students are all online. While there was definitely interest (by the number of unique visits to our designated website) there were very few sales generated after people viewed it. From feedback received, while interest was high, the shipping cost for individual orders precluded most from completing the sale. I can see this would be a great fundraiser for in person schools but didn't generate the sales we were hoping for.
This fundraiser on our end was publicized by emailing all 2500+ student families twice, posted on the school's ASB Instagram account. Posted on the school's Facebook page, alumni page and 10 other local Facebook group pages. Also posted on the Nextdoor app. My point, it wasn't for lack of advertising. They have done 3 other virtual fundraisers, this one generated the least interest and had the highest shipping.
To the recollection of myself and the other adult moderator, it seems that the sample products we saw online were more robust and diverse than what we actually wound up from being able to sell. Having purchased myself, I honestly think that there was a significant mark up on the product which would account for the organization being able to make 40% of the profit.
Service was very good. the only reason for not having five stars is because we are still waiting on one case to be delivered.
The product was very tasty, the only thing was the cost of shipping. Many people didn't want to support because of the shipping price.
This is the 3rd year we have used Big Fundraising Ideas to help us raise money for our class. We enjoy working with them.
Except for limited coffee choices in the online store, everything was great.
Absolutely no complaints! We love how everything is separated out into bags for us and ready to go. Shipping is always fast, even the back orders were right behind the first set of orders. Always a pleasure working with your company!
Excellent experience! I loved the no upfront fees and 40% profit for our group! It's a win/win for all involved and we plan to do this fundraiser every year! I think we'll get even better results once we return to in-person learning next year. Thank you!
Questions About High School Fundraisers
Consider unique school fundraising ideas that other groups don’t offer. For example, discount cards, flowers, pizza, or a custom high school tumbler.
The most popular are seasonal brochures, cookie dough, frozen food and popcorn.
Beef jerky and snack bars are healthier alternatives to selling candy. Scratch cards are another great option and can earn your group up to 90% profit.
Booster clubs are always looking to try something new. Try selling something that can be personalized with your school name and logo. Tumblers, discount cards or scratch cards are great examples.
Profit is usually 40% and can be higher depending on the type of product.
Plan ahead and start your fundraiser earlier than later. The sooner you approach people, the less likely they’ve already been approached by others to buy.
Consider adding an extra incentive.
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.
