We always had the most monetary luck doing bake sales and candy drives. People always have a soft spot for sweets!

What about service projects that are needed in the community and have the people donate a minimum for say raking leaves, pulling weeds, painting porch railings, etc.

No one needs wrapping paper or magazines.

Candy or pop corn are popular here.

Car washes were popular until there were water shortages.

Flea markets are hit or miss.

We had one event called international night where clubs cooked meals from their nationality and you could eat I or take out. That was huge! All food and cooking were donated so it was all profit!

Post back what works for you!

My grandchildren's school did book fundraisers and they went over well because people love to buy books for their children. They also had a pizza sale every Wednesday after school, a bake sale once a year and they did a Halloween carnival.

How about a Penny Drive?

Years ago, I was in charge of a school supply fund raiser. I had a room full of packages in my living room, and I had the list for each grade, K through 7.

Over several days, I pulled all the packages together (after working all day at a new job) and delivered them back to the school. I know the prices were better than buying everything separately, because I had done the research. Still, a lot of them went unsold.

Then, I had to break everything down and return them to the store.

Surprisingly, the penny drive brought in more cash. We asked people to save their pennies, and of course, some just put all their change in, and I believe the school collected something like $1500.

Thankfully, I wasn't on the penny-rolling detail.
