Daycare fundraisers are a child’s introduction into fundraising.

Typically, they have never done a fundraiser before and, chances are, neither have their parents.

Daycare Fundraising Ideas

Unlike older children’s fundraisers, daycare fundraisers require a little more supervision. The parents will most likely handle the selling for the child. Daycare fundraising is not only a good way to raise money for your daycare, it is a good way to get parents involved in their children’s lives.

A daycare fundraiser is not your typical fundraiser. Since this is their first look at fundraising, you will want to make sure you walk them thru the whole sale. They are going to see fundraising a lot while growing up and you don’t want to turn them away on their first day care fund raiser.

So let's talk about ways to raise the most money possible the next time you hold a daycare fundraiser.

Remember Who Is Raising Money

Parents with Daycare Students

Unlike older grades you can be certain the kids in your daycare will not be selling any fundraising products for you, right?

So who will be selling?

The parents of course. So when you choose a daycare fundraiser be sure to consider products that parents would either get excited about or would be great experience for parents to share with their children.

For example think about a daycare student showing grandparents a gift catalog just before Christmas.

You're Dealing With Fundraising Rookies

Young Family

The odds are the families who are participating in your daycare fundraiser are fundraising rookies unless they have older kids and have already been introduced to elementary school fundraising.

That means you should not only be careful to make the first fundraising experience at least tolerable you need to plan on taking the time to really explain your fundraiser, its procedures and what happens during and after the event.

Leave nothing to the imagination.

Remember these fundraising rookies can really get into their first foray or they can be so turned off that they never help again.

Easy Daycare Fundraisers to Consider

Easy Daycare Fundraisers

Here are some daycare fundraising ideas you might consider:

1. Cookie Dough Fundraiser: Cookie dough is a great product for daycare families. Cookie dough is such a natural fundraising product so we suggest you consider any of the four no cost options in our cookie dough section. It will introduce your families to a product they will see all through elementary school. And the kids love the product.

2. Readathon Fundraiser: I know what you're thinking. What are the odds that kids in daycare can read? It doesn't matter. Hopefully your daycare focusing some portion of its day on reading whether the kids read or are being read to. People love to support kids involvement in reading programs. So we strongly suggest you consider this option.

3. Magic Melts Fundraiser: Magic Melts have become one of our top fundraisers overall. The melts are highly scented fragrance bars that you use in candle warmers instead of burning candles. There are a few national brands that are extremely popular. We feel like our Magic Melts are better than those products as far as quality is concerned but our price is wonderful. You'll sell a package of melts for $4 and still make 50% profit. There's no minimum and you can qualify for free shipping if you sell 150 or more packages.
