Top School Fundraisers

School fundraisers are held in more than 90% of elementary schools, as well as a majority of middle and high schools. School fundraisers account for 80% of the money used to fund school extracurriculars. This means fundraisers are essential to helping raise money for the educational opportunities that assist students in finding their passions.

School Fundraisers for All Ages

School fundraisers are a part of nearly every student’s experience. That’s why Big Fundraising Ideas offers a variety of product and brochure fundraisers. From item-in-hand fundraisers, like pretzel rods and lollipops, to gourmet kitchenware brochures, your school can find a fundraising program that appeals to everyone. With turnkey school fundraising programs, where product selection, marketing, and logistics are made easy and efficient, schools can focus on selling items and raising money.

Nowadays, school fundraisers go far beyond traditional fundraisers like cookie dough or discount cards (although these still make excellent programs!). In fact, school fundraisers can feature deluxe frozen pies, smencils, customized apparel, and even Auntie Anne’s pretzels or Cinnabon rolls. Kids, teens and adults will all find a school fundraiser that appeals to their passion and fuel them to make sales.

School Fundraiser Ideas

School fundraisers are most successful when schools set goals, consider their audience, and encourage engagement. Often, school fundraising goals are tied to a specific need or project, like new playground equipment or textbooks for fifth grade science. Determining how much your school needs to raise is a great way to help you pick the right product or brochure for your school fundraiser.

School fundraisers also must consider their audience, however. If your school is in a predominately young neighborhood, fancier kitchen gadgets may have less appeal to new families on entry-level incomes. However, lots of single-family homes are perfect for gourmet food offerings, like pizzas and pies, that make every mom’s life a little bit easier. A little research up front will go a long way in setting you up for a successful school fundraiser.

Finally, be sure to pick a school fundraiser students can get excited about. Sports teams will love things they can customize to foster school spirit, while younger students will love treats and items they can use and enjoy.
