Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is just around the corner! As you are getting your grocery shopping lists ready, you may want to include some items that you could use for a fundraiser! It is important to note that there is not a wrong time of the year to host a fundraiser. If you are a parent, it can be a great way to bond with your child! They are a lot of fun and are educational for children. Here are some great fundraising ideas you can try out this November!
Who doesn’t love a freshly baked pie? Pumpkin, apple, and pecan pies are fall favorites! It is a good idea to host a pie fundraiser right before Thanksgiving. This way people will be enticed to buy one so they can eat it as dessert after their turkey dinners.
There are plenty of people who love Thanksgiving dinner but don’t want to go through the hassle of preparing the meal. For this reason, there are plenty of families who decide to go out to dinner for Thanksgiving instead of cooking inside of their home. Instead of going out to an expensive restaurant or cooking at home, you could provide the people in your area a third option; hosting a turkey dinner fundraiser!
Some items always sell like hotcakes at fundraisers. Gift baskets fall into this category! There are all sorts of small things that you can stuff inside a gift basket. For example, chocolates, nuts, beauty products, stationery supplies, and jams, are great gift basket stuffers!
If you are looking for a sweet treat to sell during the fall months, look no further than caramel apples! Dentists hate them, but they are a fall classic that usually sells quickly at fundraisers. They are also pretty inexpensive to make, which means you should expect to have excellent profit margins.
