How to Plan a School Fundraiser

The key to a successful fundraiser is preparation!

Planning a school fundraiser can be a fun endeavor that requires collaboration and creativity. In order to accomplish your mission, there should be a detailed plan in place. With that said, here are some tips for planning a successful fundraiser!


When it comes to executing a fundraising plan, preparation is crucial. Sit down with your team to come up with a plan of action for your fundraiser. Write down a list of supplies, the responsibilities of each team member, a schedule, and what you are striving to accomplish.


Once the plan has been decided upon, coordinate your team so that everyone knows what their exact responsibilities will be. Delegate roles and responsibilities to people to spread out the work and get the jobs done more efficiently.


This step is as simple as putting your plan into action. Execute the plan that you’ve already taken the time to prepare for and coordinate. If necessary, evaluate how the fundraiser is going and make adjustments where you think they need to be made. Raise your goal if the fundraiser is doing better than expected or adjust your timeline to make sure that everything gets accomplished.


Every team needs a team leader; someone that will keep everything organized and running smoothly. The team leader has a clear vision of the goals that the fundraiser wants to accomplish and will make sure that all roles are being filled.

Sell and Collect

It should be clear from the prepare and coordinate phases what is being sold and the best ways to contact supporters. Prepayment is the most secure method as it eliminates risk. If your fundraiser is designed to do so, decide on what rewards will be given to those that participate, and if there will be level based on the contribution.
