Private School Fundraising Ideas

Are you looking for perfect Private School Fundraising Ideas?

Easy Fundraising Ideas helps thousands of groups raise millions of dollars every single year. A large number of those fundraisers are for school groups, including Private School Fundraisers.

On this page, you will find different private school fundraising ideas. While we offer a huge selection of tried and true fundraisers throughout our website we feel these suggestions work well for your group.

The examples contain high-profit fundraisers,  including fundraising ideas that offer more than 90% profit. Some of our most popular programs do not require any upfront costs. There are several options in that category. Also on the list are fundraisers that have extremely low minimums and work well for smaller groups, which is sometimes the case for private school fundraisers.

We have Flower Bulb programs specifically for fall and another for spring 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.
