Fundraising Ideas For School Kids
by: Janice Jenkins




Children are pre-occupied with homework and other school activities. They may also get involved with extracurricular work, such as joining clubs and taking part in volunteerism. They may even lend a hand in doing charity work. All these may entail having to raise funds for use in their activities. As they are not earning money yet and under the guidance of their parents, they may want to go for fundraising activities. Of course, fundraising is not an easy task. One of the first steps is looking for fundraising ideas. For kids, they may not fully wrap their head around fundraising ideas. If you wish to suggest fundraising ideas for your kids, you may want to read the following:

Sell candies and cookies.

Food items are always a hit. No one can refuse getting freshly baked food items, such as cookies, cakes and pastries. With the help of other parents, you can host cooking sessions, the outputs of which can be sold by your kids in your neighborhood or at school. Start by having a brainstorming session with other parents. Talk about what are the food items that will sell among young and old alike.

Go for art bazaars.

You may want to hold art activities for kids. The kids can make art stuff, such as paintings, sculptures, and others that can be sold to anyone. You may also want to hold art exhibits; events in which you can charge fees for those who attend. The profit of these art activities or exhibits would go to the children’s fund.

Hold concerts.

Your kids will surely be a talented lot. If they can play instruments, dance, or sing, they can showcase their talents on stage. Conduct a talent fest where the kids can be stars of the show. Plan this activity in advance. You can get sponsors, such as local government units, commercial companies, and corporations that can shoulder the other expenses, such as venue fee. You can sell tickets for these concerts and it will directly go to the funds for the kids.

Plan book sales.

In your neighborhood, you can conduct sell books and other items, too. You can get the support of those who can provide old or reusable items. Conduct a garage sale during a weekend. Put up posters, flyers, and other promotional materials around your neighborhood or locality to generate publicity.

Get donations.

Create a letter detailing your cause or what benefit would the kids have. Make sure that you provide a great proposal to prospective donors. Send these to heads of corporations, businesses, and local merchants.

Make fundraising calendars.

You can create unique looking fundraising calendars that can be a hit among young and old alike. Work on the design as well as content of the fundraising calendars. Make sure that the commercial printer you choose can offer you quality services. Otherwise, you may not be able to sell these calendars well which translate to less funds raised for your kids.

Once you have received donations from individuals and institutions, do not forget to send thank you cards. Make them feel appreciated. It is easy to make thank you cards, so do not hesitate to make or send these. These do not cost a lot, too. Aside from that, these thank you cards can be made by the kids themselves.
