High School Fundraiser Ideas?

I am 16 and in high school. Through the high school I, along with 29 other students will be going to Chicago for Model UN. Which is where we go and represent countries and debate on World Issues from that countries point of view. I am excited for it, but there is a problem. All thirty of us need help to raise a rather large sum of money. We are also trying to go on another trip to St. Paul, but we can only go if there is enough money. So i ask, how can a large group of thirty students raise money. Are there any Ideas?

I would be glad to do an Avon fundraiser. Avon sells really well! It is not from the book but from flyers. Very simple for you to do!

Is it too cold for car washes in MN? That's always an easy fundraiser with minimal expense. Usually held in a church or school parking lot.

What about raking leaves. Canvas neighborhoods and knock on doors. Bring lots of bags and rakes. If it has snowed you could always shovel driveways and sidewalks.


What about a dog sitting or dog walking service?

What about a Parent's Night Out where teens babysit or plan a craft for kids so parents can shop for a few hours or have date night?

Local restaurants here have fundraisers where the group cashier & bus tables for "tips". It's announced way in advance so everyone eats out that night and "tips" big (donates).

If there's lots of senior citizens in your town you could ask what errands or work they need done. Maybe they need housecleaning done or groceries delivered. Maybe they need lightbulbs changed or a garage or attic cleaned. Maybe they just need their trash dragged to the curb each Friday (pickup day).

Hope these are ideas you can use or spark your imagination for other ideas.

Hi, don't know where you're from, so this might not work if you're in a warm area through the winter. We live in an area where our winters are very cold. Many people have wood stoves, and we raffled tickets for X number of cords of wood. They sold like wildfire..pardon the pun. Check out if a logger will kick in a donation of logs, and split your own.


Between all you students, there has to be someone with a chainsaw and woodsplitter or spitting axe. Also, with the gas prices today, you can chip in to purchase X number of litres, and raffle it off. Good luck, have fun!

2-week previous and at entrance have have small items from several countries to purchase
3-during intermission sell goodies from the different countries for sale.

We have organized a Prom Dress Consignment. Advertisement is the key, make flyers, take them to "tri-State" area high schools, and charge $5.00 per dress w/ accessories to consign, and the profit goes to the individual selling the dresses. We charged $1.00 per person to come in and browse, offer a "Child Watch" for young children. It is a big success, plan approx. 2 months before prom for your sale.
