Great High School Fundraising Ideas

Great high school fundraising ideas

High school marks a transition in a lot of things for students. They are discovering who they are and more specific interests. Autonomy and personal responsibility increase tremendously. As a result, the types of fundraisers students enjoy also change. Great high school fundraising ideas engage participants, motivating them to sell.  Here are a few steps to get you started on the path to your perfect fundraiser.

Let current events inspire your great high school fundraising idea. The environment, music, fashion,  and the latest celebrity gossip are topics high schoolers are tuned into. Pick up on the latest social media trend and tie it into your event. Kids this age can also find their way around a kitchen. Because of this, bake sales or DJ’d cakewalks are now viable options. Battle of the Bands, talent shows, and fashion shows are powerful main events. Earn extra through fundraisers that support them. Read more about supplementary fundraising ideas here.

Choosing a Fundraising Program

All great high school fundraising ideas begin with a plan. Firstly, outline all your expenses from the get-go. Make sure to include all costs. Most importantly,  expenditures for fundraiser itself.  Determine exactly how much money to raise then divide that figure by the number of students selling.  This gives you a per-person sales goal.  From there, consider products students enjoy discussing. Now, pick the most appropriate program for your group using these two crucial bits of information.

In high school, efforts move away from the school-wide fundraising programs. Therefore, a great high school fundraising idea is scalable to smaller groups. A typical high school fundraiser has from one to twenty-five students selling.  Fundraising programs with high minimum order levels or low profit do not make sense for these teams. The very best high school fundraising ideas offer high profits and low minimum orders. Additionally,  examine programs that are easy  to manage, and are interesting for the students

We have several fundraising programs that are highly effective for high school groups. If you need help picking a program or have more questions, do not hesitate to call one of our fundraising experts at 866-874-8383.

High school scratch card

Once students reach high school, fundraising becomes much more specific. That’s why scratch cards are perfect high school fundraising tools. The fundraising scratch cards can raise a lot of money at a very small cost. The minimum order is only one card. Plus, the cards are custom imprinted with high school group name at no additional charge.

What You Should Know

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. The profits and profit percentages shown are based on successfully having all 50 dots scratched off on your scratch card:
