How Do Middle School Fundraisers Work?

Do you sponsor the art club or cheer squad? Or maybe you’re the middle school band or choir director. Regardless of the group, the need for money is great.

There are so many fundraisers out there. So how do you make yours stand out?

With over 100 products to choose from, we can help. Schools make about $1.5 billion a year selling items like cookie dough, wrapping paper, and candy bars.

We offer middle schools 2 ways to sell our products:

  1. Order a product and sell it.
  2. Use a brochure to take orders.

With direct sale fundraising, choose a product and submit a purchase order. We’ll ship your order so you can distribute the product to your students to sell.

Your profit is the difference between what you collect and your invoice. Payment is due within 15 days from your delivery date. This gives you time to collect the money from your sales.

If you’d rather collect the money first, brochure fundraising is your best bet. We’ll send brochures, order forms and money collection envelopes for each student. After 2 weeks of selling, send us your order forms for processing.

We’ll send you a sales report, invoice, and contact you for a delivery date for your merchandise.

Fundraising Ideas for Middle Schools

Middle school is the perfect opportunity to get students more involved in fundraising. From the ages of 11 to 14, middle schoolers gain a stronger sense of independence. So they're likely to engage more with the social good their fundraisers can achieve.

Don’t underestimate them - let their wings soar (with supervision, of course)! Start by identifying a need and setting a goal with them. Then, empower them to sell and succeed.

Fundraiser Product Options

Our quick snack options are perfect for middle school fundraisers. Pretzel rods, beef sticks, and popcorn are all individually wrapped and mess free. Encourage selling these at bus stops or after school in the loading zone.

Kids are the hungriest at the end of the day when it’s still somewhere in-between lunch and dinnertime. This is especially the case if they’ve started staying for extracurricular activities.

If your child rides the bus, suggest selling it on their bus before they set off for the afternoon! Salty & sweet is a famous and beloved combo, and students are likely to buy multiple items. Particularly when the price is low and accessible.

Aim for a price point that works with an average middle school student’s weekly allowance. Learn how to teach middle school students about financial responsibility

Want a healthier middle school fundraiser? Our snack brochure is another quick option, but offers more health conscious options. This might sell best with the parents who forget to pack a snack or teachers who need energy throughout the day. From cashew mixes to sweet banana chips, there’s something for everyone in this package.

Middle school students can tackle fundraisers with varying price points with ease. We recommend one with a wide selection of items, like the Gift Collection brochure. Designed for convenient holiday shopping, students can offer something for everyone.

Middle School Prize Programs

You can bet middle schoolers get competitive, and we’ve taken that into consideration. So choose between a variety of appealing prize programs. 'Locker Full of Prizes' offers the latest in technological gadgets and toys.

The more items students sell, the better the options are. The prizes are no extra cost to the middle school fundraising sponsor and start at just 3 items sold.

If selling cookie dough or frozen food, consider the 'Bucks or Dough' prize program. Students get to choose either cash or cookie dough for selling. How fun is that!

Speaking of a fun idea, create a chart for your middle schoolers to help them track their goal. Have mini-goals for every prize level leading up to their grand goal. Help them see what they can do with some hard work.

Make sure to go over the prize chart with them and get them excited about their fundraiser. It’s a great opportunity to develop skills while helping them meet an important goal.

If you're doing a school-wide PTA fundraiser, consider our 'Super Party'. It's the ultimate in fun and excitement. Students who sell 8 items get invited to a giant inflatable party with all their friends!

Another thing that motivates middle school students to sell is getting out of class to go to the party.
