Deciding on the best school fundraiser can be quite difficult. It would be great to come up with a unique idea that no one has though of to help raise money for your school but everything seems to have been done before. Even with the right idea, you may not have the time or resources to implement an effective school fundraising activity.

Here are a number of easy and cost-effective ideas for fundraising that can bring in extra money for your school:

  • Bingo Night Fundraiser
  • School Car Wash
  • Pizza Night
  • School Sleepover
  • Raffle Tickets
  • Online Charity Auction
  • Sponsored Silence
  • Cake or Pie Drive
  • Charity Race Night
  • No Uniform Day
  • School Dance
  • Chocolates Fundraising

Cake Sale

A cake sale is definitely a great idea to help raise money for your school. Everyone loves sweet treats so why not appeal to their taste buds! The most economical way is to get a few parents of kids to bake up a number of delicious goodies to sell at the cake drive. However we all know how busy people are today. So it might be worth buying wholesale cakes which you can resell at a margin. Chef Momos is a wholesale cake bakery in Melbourne and can make a large selection of treats for your fundraising. This includes chocolate mud cakes, pavlovas, slices, cookes and even friands.

School Wildlife Shows

Spreading the word and getting your fundraiser out there is half the battle. Telling other parents at kids parties can help get equally passionate people involved. Reptile Encounters does kids parties for Melbourne children and gives them a chance to get up close and personal with local Australian wildlife. They are also a great idea if you are having a fundraiser at your school. Simply hire them which will help attract more people along to your event, and also maybe charge $5 for kids to get a photo holding some of the reptiles. The choice is yours.

Another unique fundraising idea is to have a pet grooming contest. Most school kids have animals, and holding a competition to see who can make their animal look the best is fun and entertaining. Entrants could pay a fee to go in, and the winner can receive a prize that is donated. Classmates not competing could also go to the “showing” and pay a small entrance fee to attend, as could family and friends.
