Classic JROTC Fundraising Ideas

JROTC is a tradition in our schools and throughout the country. JROTC programs build character and turn out well-rounded and disciplined individuals. It’s also true that JROTC can help students build a career and plan for their adult lives after they graduate.

There are so many benefits to the program, it’s hard to imagine our schools without it. Yet gaps in available funding have caused JROTC to suffer somewhat over the years.

JROTC fundraising is a great way to fill in those gaps and to make sure that your school is not in any danger of having to shut the program down. A traditional program often does well with one of our classic JROTC fundraising ideas.

Chocolate bars are a perennial favorite, and as you’re probably aware, chocolate never wanes in popularity. Do you remember the chocolate bar fundraisers from back when you were in school?

They’re not much different now, and that’s because fundraisers like these simply work well the way they are. There’s no need to change a JROTC fundraising idea that works well year after year. If you’ve done a chocolate fundraiser before, then you already know how fast those bars get sold. There’s no need to do something different just for the sake of it if you already have something that works.

Some JROTC fundraising efforts combine a classic fundraiser with a newer one in order to test some more innovative ideas. You can order a batch of our scratch cards to help supplement your profits, for example.

Scratch card fundraisers are one of our highest profit fundraisers, and they’re very simple to implement, as well. Students can carry the cards around with them while they’re selling chocolate bars. So if you’re looking for a double shot of power fundraising, combining scratch cards with another fundraiser can be a very fun and profitable idea for JROTC fundraising.

Here is an example of the coupon page you give to the people as a “Thank You” for participating. You can create a custom coupon handout with your town’s unique businesses.

As you can see from the profit chart below the lowest profit percentage you will make from using scratch cards for fundraisers is 85%. There are, however, price breaks that can increase your profit percentage. The more cards you purchase the higher your profit potential for each card.

We have Flower Bulb programs specifically for spring and another for fall so you can hold a flower fundraiser any time of year. Flower fundraisers are practical and ecologically sensitive. We offer a great selection of bulbs, a high-profit potential, free brochures and order forms and the ability to qualify for free shipping.

What You Should Know

Fundraising Flower Bulbs are like candle fundraisers. Your profit percentage is not affected by the number of orders you take. You get 50% profit or half the selling price for every item you sell. That means smaller groups make the same profits for selling flowers as larger groups.

If you sell less than 150 fundraising flower bulbs, though, there is a $65 shipping fee which will affect your total profit. Orders of 150 or more flower bulb orders will qualify for free shipping.

Profit and Cost

  • No upfront cost
  • Free brochures for your participants
  • Free shipping (orders of 150 items or more)
  • Start in under a minute

coffee and tea fundraiser

The popularity of coffee is undeniable. What was once just a morning ritual has become an all-day affair. Take advantage of this demand with a coffee fundraiser. Give your supporters their caffeine fix and perk up your profits.  You will sell 10 oz bags of freshly ground coffee for $20 each. There are seven great flavors along with a gift coffee tin. Even though there is no off-season for drinking coffee, coffee and tea seem to sell more easily in fall and winter.

What You Should Know

Tea and Coffee fundraisers are very similar to candle fundraisers. You will make a specific profit percentage on every item you sell. For tea and coffee fundraisers you make 50% profit, or $10.00 each.

If you sell less than 150 bags, though, there is a $65 shipping fee. Orders of 150 or more bags of coffee or tea will qualify you for free shipping.

Profit and Cost

  • No upfront cost
  • Free brochures for your participants

JROTC Fundraisers that Work Well for Small Groups

Some schools have a lot of people involved in the JROTC program, and that’s fantastic, but there are quality JROTC corps on all ends of the spectrum. If you have a smaller group, it doesn’t change their need for funding, and that means the need for JROTC fundraisers is still there, as well. But what are your chances of making sufficient money from a fundraiser if you only have a small fundraising team?

When it comes time to start thinking about JROTC fundraising, obviously your top concern is profit. You want to make as much money for the corps as you possibly can so that they can continue their work helping young men and women reach their goals.

Fundraising and Social Distancing

JROTC fundraisers are a fantastic way for the training corps to band together toward a common goal, and bridge the gap between current funding and what is actually needed. When choosing JROTC fundraisers, you want to keep the mood light and fun. This is a great exercise in teamwork, and you want the corps to understand that every step they take helps them reach their financial goals, and benefits them directly.
