Fundraising This Year? Try These 37 Resources

During any given month in the school year, there always seems to be a fundraiser going on. As budgets decrease in size, schools will be resorting to more creative ways to raise money. The list I've put together for you covers everything from bracelets to gift cards. I personally have been using Amazon SchoolRewards for the past two years. It's a great fundraiser because no one has to buy that $2.00 bar of chocolate; they just shop at Amazon for things they were already going to purchase. Our library media center has used the money to buy new books.

  1. Hey! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about online school fundraising in your area. I'm glad to stop by your site and know more about online school fundraising.
    Other school fundraisers that generate substantial revenue for schools include auctions and raffles. With these types of fundraising activities, the school requests donations from local restaurants and businesses in their area, that are then offered at the event. In the case of an auction, people are allowed to bid on the dinner, limousine ride, or whatever was donated by the local businesses in the community. In the case of a raffle, people purchase raffle tickets that are then later picked randomly from a container. Often the donations are solicited by parents acting on behalf of the school, who make phone calls, write letters, or know of other parents who work for companies who may be willing to donate.
    Auction Fundraisers are discovering the power of anytime, anywhere auctions to dramatically improve the way they raise money.
