How about a penny bomb? Each of the team members can have a jar with their name and their friends, neighbors, family, etc can donate their extra pennies. We were very successful at this one, even the staff and faculty donated.

Try Temporary Spirit tatoos. You can have ones made with your school logo or other design. You can have the team sell them before any big game or school event. The kids love them!

In our school, which is very small -- K to 12 with 140 students, one of the best fundraisers was a homemade soup sale. One of the mothers from the VB team organized these. Expenses were bowls, spoons, and napkins. Soup was dontated by the moms, served by the team. Homemade buns were also donated.

Another idea is the traditional goodie sale at school -- squares, cookies, muffins, etc. One mom I know brought cinnamon buns to school and baked them in the Home Ec room. The smell of baking cinnamon buns really helped sales.

Auction.

Get three of four groups together ranging from four to five students in each group and auction yourself in doing yard work such as weeding, mowing, racking, or shoveling the yard depending on the time of year. These things are sometimes hard to accomplish in peoples busy schedule so they will be thrilled for the help. Do thier yard work for 3 or so days. Start the biding at $10.

Each year our school district's band plays in the Orange Bowl parade in Florida. To raise money they sell what else.... oranges! They are a lot healthier than candy bars and the money pays for the band and chaperons to go to Florida.

I would check out two great green fundraising programs offered by Save Your World, LLC. This company sponsors two unique programs that enable any approved school or charitable organization to earn money for its goals, while also supporting its conservation mission to save areas of rainforest. For more information, go to: http://store.saveyourworld.com/category-s/27.htm

They are also sponsoring an Amazon walk, which would be a great topic for a special science unit on the rainforest. It would a unique learning experience for classes to start communicating with British explorer Ed Stafford when school starts. They can track his progress in the jungle throughout the year. Children can also ask him questions and he can tell them about his most recent adventures in the Amazon rainforest. To learn more about this extraordinary journey, see: http://store.saveyourworld.com/Walking-the-Amazon-s/1155.htm

We get our best response by having a donkey basketball game. You will need to gather the participants, we generally get four teams together. We try to get well known people in the community as well as members of our organization. The company we use is called Buckeye Donkey Basketball out of Ohio. We generally make $1200-1-$1800. Mind you we are a small high school (300 students) and a small community (2000 people). You may make more with a larger school. We have shirts made for this each time. We pay for this by asking businesses in the community to donate $10. They are much more receptive to the small donation and you will get more publicity and involvement with multiple sponsors.

I don't know if you have a BJ's Wholesale Club near you or an Edible Arrangements...I do know these companies run fundraisers for different functions. If it's a girls team, how about Avon. Short of the typical chocolate sales. Hope this may help and if I think of anything else, I will let you know...Shari

"Chocolate Buffet" (all types of chocolate desserts. Charge a certain fee & raise lots of $$ in donations.

PLUS (could have a chocolate fountain & fresh fruits to dip, for those who didn't want to load up on all those calories of the other desserts).

Good Luck on your decisions!

I'm part of student council and I'm the freshman class president. I'm having a difficult time finding good, easy fund raising ideas so our class can be ready when we have to sponsor the Sophomore dance when we're sophomores and Prom/Ball etc. Any good suggestions?

I think these are great, but we need ones that we don't have to use money, but earn it.
