Simple School Fundraisers

Simple School Fundraisers

If you have been searching for simple school fundraisers, you’ve probably found a lot of stuff that is exactly the opposite.  If you don’t want to deal with software, catalogs or apps, here are our favorite, straightforward, easy money makers.

For a simple school fundraiser that will wow everyone, we suggest a highly effective card-based fundraiser. Scratch cards, pizza cards, and discount cards are amazingly easy to distribute and can return surprisingly high profits. Especially if you can commit to buying a minimum number of cards as an initial investment. As a school fundraiser idea, this is a perfect way to keep things simple. First of all, there are no shipping charges or delivery times to worry about. Then, once you have your cards, every penny that comes in from your fundraiser goes straight to the school.

Scratch cards are a super simples school fundraiser! The supporters scratch a few dots off the card and donate the amount revealed. Discount and pizza cards are almost as easy. Just pick your favorite merchants to be included in your offering. Send the info to us, along with any pictures or graphics you’d like on your card. We take care of the rest!

You may prefer to stick with one of the classically simple school fundraisers. Luckily, we have plenty of those, as well. Things like chocolate bars have worked for thousands of school groups over many decades, and are still going strong today. There is a reason  chocolate bar school fundraisers are so popular. It’s because chocolate is so popular! The students will especially love any school fundraiser idea that involves candy. Therefore, if you want to get them behind their fundraiser wholeheartedly, go for a simple chocolate fundraiser.

Speaking of candy, selling lollipops is one of the most simple school fundraisers. Lollipops and kids just go together. Also, lollipops are one of the most affordable fundraising products available. They are cost-effective to purchase and have an attractive selling price. All lollipop fundraisers have a minimum purchase of 1 case. Shipping is free and you make a 50% profit on every lollipop you sell.
