While elementary schools are almost out for the summer, that doesn’t mean you can stop thinking up creative fundraising ideas to use next year! Summer is the perfect time to get started planning your next product fundraiser for your child’s elementary school, and it’s also the perfect time to get creative and think of new ways to fundraise. Here are some of our most fun fundraising ideas for elementary schools.
Product fundraising remains one of the most popular types of elementary school fundraisers because it works, it’s a lot of fun, and in many cases (like with Claire’s Gourmet) you get to eat the results! Product fundraising allows for a lot of flexibility when choosing the actual product, so get the students involved and have them vote on what they would like to sell. Do your children love pizza? Would they like selling cheesecakes more? If you choose the right product fundraiser, and the children will be so excited about selling the actual product that it will sell itself.
Make It About the Kids
While it’s easier to pick what fundraiser the children will be doing and ask them to participate, one of the best ways to make fundraising fun is by actually having the children help decide what the fundraiser will be, what they will be selling, and how they will be marketing and advertising. Have a contest in the school to come up with a creative fundraiser idea and have the winner be the next fundraiser you hold. You might be surprised how creative and clever the children are (and you might raise a whole lot of money!).
