School Fund-Raiser Ideas

  1. 1. A full-time parent, Wendy Dransfield takes an active role in her children's education. At Woodside Elementary School, Wendy Dransfield served as chair of an auction fund- raiser. When schools need money, there are many more options than the traditional bake sale. Raffles stand out as a perennial favorite, largely because children can become involved in both ticket selling and securing prizes. Many children feel a sense of accomplishment when they are able to obtain a raffle prize from a local business, and this strategy can fuel an auction as well.
  2. 2. By gathering items for raffles or auctions, children learn persuasive techniques and business skills while helping their schools. Both children and parents can communicate the value of a fund-raiser to a potential event sponsor or item donor. Local businesses frequently benefit from becoming engaged in community events, which makes a sponsored project mutually appealing. Events also give parents a chance to volunteer for the school, and children tend to appreciate having their whole families involved.
  3. 3. For this reason, many schools have embraced theme nights, gift-wrap events, student art sales, and other projects with a community element. The best fund-raisers not only bring in money for school programs but also get home, school, and neighborhood connected in supporting children.
