If your school needs a steady supply of elementary school fundraising ideas so that you can raise money all throughout the entire school year, then check out the different ideas that I will be presenting to you in this article. These different ideas are intended to be done during different seasons.
Let’s get the elementary school fundraising ideas rolling. First here is the Halloween pumpkin patch. This is intended to be done during the season of fall. This is a PTO fundraising ideas event that can be done on a roadside site. The most important part of setting up this fundraiser event is finding a nice venue where all guests will have enough space to have fun. Once you get to find a nice venue for your event, you can decorate it with hay bales and different pumpkins that are laid down on a bed of straw. A good tip to keep in mind for this fundraiser campaign would be to buy your pumpkin in bulk from a grower in your area or at a farmer’s market in your community. Next in line are Thanksgiving Turkeys. This is basically a product fundraiser where you will be selling out turkeys to people. Turkeys are considered as a staple of every house during Thanksgiving, which is why selling these days before the actually day of the holiday will help you raise large amounts of funds. To get this fundraiser idea up and running smoothly, you need to have a wholesale source for your turkeys. You also need to have order forms and brochures ready, which your sales volunteers will be using during the order-taker phase of your campaign. Once you finish getting orders from people, you can now purchase your supplies from your chosen wholesaler. After you buy your supplies, you can then set a pickup day or a schedule when your customers will be getting their turkeys. If some of your clients want to have their turkeys delivered, you can charge them an extra fee.
For the Christmas season, Christmas trees and wreathes are great products to sell. Like the Thanksgiving fundraiser idea, you also need to get a reputable wholesaler for this campaign. You can either choose to set up a sales stand or a do an order-taker campaign. If you want to go with an order-taker campaign, be sure to prepare sales brochures that contain details about your different products. A good tip to follow for this fundraiser is to carry samples of wreathes. This will allow your customers to have a personal feel of your products. In this way, they’ll be able to know that they’ll be getting high quality products in exchange for their money.
Another good idea to try out would be a citrus fruit and poinsettias fundraiser campaign. This is good to set out during the late days of the fall season. This works as an order-taker campaign. During the late days of all, fresh citrus fruits and holiday flowers are really a huge hit. A tip to keep in mind for this is to save on your freight by having a full truckload order and by buying poinsettias from wholesale nurseries.
