We know that fundraising requires the involvement of parents, teachers, and other guardians to help with organization and handling money, but you can get kids to be more interested in getting involved when they find the activities fun and engaging. Check out these ideas for fundraisers that children will love!
Art Gallery and Sale
Kids love being creative, and an art sale and gallery is a great way to encourage to create art for a great cause. Have children create an art piece based on the theme of the fundraiser or cause being supported. Then, you’ll host an art gallery where the children will display their works, and people in the community will be able to bid on and purchase the art, with all proceeds going toward the cause.
Host a Carnival
Carnivals are fun and whimsical events that children love attending. They love the energy, fun games, rides, and snacks, as well as other entertainment. Hosting a carnival is a great fundraising event that makes profits from selling tickets for admission and the sale of games, refreshments, contests, and raffles.
A coin drive is a simple way to teach children about saving and philanthropy. They can get creative by designing their own collection bank. They’ll then use it to collect change from around the house and when you’re out making purchases.
Charge a fee for admission and entry into a talent show. Kids will love getting together with their friends to come up with funny and entertaining acts. They’ll also get the chance to explore and show off their talents. All proceeds from the show will go toward the cause or organization that the fundraiser is supporting. It not only allows children to be creative, but it helps develop their communication and teamwork skills.
