School Fundraising Made Easy

Learn to Make the Most of Your School Fundraiser

If you feel that selecting the best school fundraising idea is a daunting task, don’t worry! Since it seems the gap between school budgets and funding required for extracurricular programs is getting larger every year, the need for profitable school fundraisers is growing. We understand the importance of these activities for student’s growth and development, but more importantly, enjoyment of school. This page will help make your choice, and execution, as hassle-free as possible for you. Below you will find a list of different school groups and organizations to research by specific type. Additionally, we’ve listed our most popular school fundraising products.

The Best Selling Cookie Dough Fundraiser

Since we introduced our $10 tub program, it has been, unquestionably, the top program for the past 5 years. Most of your customers are expecting to buy cookie dough in tubs, so it is an easy sell. There’s no initial cost, and the tubs are reasonably priced. There is no question that this is the top cookie dough fundraiser chosen by schools.

Snackin in the USA

More and more schools are choosing this no upfront cost snack fundraiser. They appreciate the low price and the fact that there’s no minimum. The fact that are rave reviews about the actual snacks is a great bonus! With 24 different items to choose from, there is something for everyone.

Yummy Licks Lollipops

These have been the best selling fundraising lollipops for nearly 10 years, so you know it’s a winner.  The suckers still sell for only $.50, and you can buy as little as one case at a time.

The short answer is “Yes”. Products and programs that work well for elementary school kids are not as effective for high school. Therefore, we’ve created pages that offer products and suggestions by school and group type to make your search as easy as possible. Below is a list of the most common searched for fundraiser types (middle school, band, etc). If you do not see your group listed, enter it into the search bar. If you would like more guidance and recommendations, please give us a call.

Our primary objective is to facilitate fundraisers that:

  1. Make money.
  2. Are as easy as possible to execute.
  3. Are fun for the participants.

We helped more than 10,000 groups last year alone, which gives us great insights into what other school groups are doing to raise money. The bottom line is we are on the fundraising front lines every day. We know what works.

For example, if you are a high school group, we provide you the most popular fundraisers based on feedback from high schools. You will notice that the products we suggest might be different if you are searching for elementary school. Each school or school group page we offer delivers the products similar groups have told us they’ve had successful fundraisers with that they enjoyed!

 

This question comes up often. The answer is, “It depends.” The best time of year for a fundraiser is different for each group and each school and your fundraising goals.

Mid to late August is a popular time for fundraisers. If your goal is to get your funds in place first, early in the school year will be your best timing. The bonus with this plan is you know in advance whether you have met financial needs.

Other groups like to have fundraising events right before the Christmas season. The December holidays are historically one of the best times for school fundraising if the products you are selling can easily be used as gifts.

While timing is an essential element, several critical factors determine whether a school fundraiser is successful or not, the most important being participation. Therefore we always recommend considering the participation factor when choosing your timing.
