Back to school season is here, which means the start of fall fundraising. Whether you are in the PTO at the elementary school your children attend or just looking for another way to help out your local school, here are some of the latest fun fundraising ideas for fall.
Host a Harvest Dinner
A harvest dinner is an excellent way to get families, students, and teachers excited about the fall. Consider inviting local restaurants to participate or use the delicious food fundraising products from Claire’s Gourmet to serve. Allowing parents and children to try products before they sell them is a great way to increase motivation and boost your sales results, so consider making your harvest dinner a fundraising launch party too!
Halloween is fast approaching, and a pumpkin carving contest is a great way to celebrate the holiday and raise some money at the same time. Allow children to register for the contest and adults to sponsor their participation. You will raise money through the registration and sponsorship fees. Next, you can invite local vendors to sell at the event or offer your own concessions stand. Once the contest is done, everyone can relax and take part in other fall festival activities like making scarecrows or face painting. By combining fundraising events, you will get the best possible profits and results.
Pie Eating Contest
For a fun and different fall fundraiser, host a pie eating contest. Ask local bakeries or even parents for pies and ask teachers and staff at the school to participate. You can encourage children and families to donate to who they would like to win and also sell extra pie at the event itself. Recruit the principal to host the event, and you’ll have a huge success on your hands!
