Choosing the right program for your private school fundraiser can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. There are so many great fundraisers how do you pick just one? The best way to decide which fundraiser is to look at the type of group you have, and go from there.
Whole School: If the program you choose turns into a school-wide fundraiser, then think big! Pick a fundraiser with high minimums that you would not be able to do with a smaller group. The Auntie Anne?s Pretzels fundraiser is a great choice for a school-wide private school fundraiser. Because there are so many people who will be participating, each person is responsible for selling fewer items making it easier on everyone.
Medium-Sized Group: Perhaps it is just the graduating class that is doing a fundraiser. No problem! Any number of the cookie dough fundraisers would work well for a medium-sized group. Students just pre-sell the cookie dough, turn in the orders, and then pass out all the products once the delivery arrives. It is a very simple program and one that everyone enjoys.
Small-Group: What will work best when the science club needs to raise money for a field trip? Scratch cards are a great program for small groups. Each card raises $100 when it is complete, and those who help out end up with a coupon sheet that saves them over $150 everyone wins!
So keep these things in mind the next time your group is looking into fundraising for private schools.
