We’ve pulled together a huge list of school fundraising ideas that will work for elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools.

Classic School Fundraising Ideas
Host a Raffle
Raffles are a classic fundraiser for all kinds of organizations. All the raffle tickets are sold and each has a set of numbers on it. An identical ticket is then dropped into a box or whatever you’re going to draw the winners from. Once the time is up for selling the tickets, a winner (or multiple winners) will be drawn. Whoever has the matching number to the ticket drawn wins.
The raffle prize(s) are usually donated or you can split the money raised and give half of it to the winner and keep the other half for the school. Change up the raffle by adding balloons where each participant picks a balloon and then at the same time, they get popped and some of them will have a winner note inside.Scratch cards are another simple option to consider.
Sell Discount Cards or Coupon Books
Everyone loves a good deal. With discount cards and coupon books, you are offering buyers a year of discounts or specific coupons for several local restaurants and retailers. The cards and books are priced anywhere between $5-$25 and the school gets to keep around 93% of the profits of the sales.
There are a few companies that put these together for you and they will gather the business partners and create the physical items to sell. It’s good for a quick turnaround and a simple easy fundraiser. You can offer prizes for the students that can sell the most of these cards and books to help make it a fun competition.
Take Advantage of Matching Gifts and Corporate Partnerships
Matching gifts and corporate giving programs are often overlooked by people making donations. When you are organizing your fundraiser, make sure you are communicating to all potential donors that they should check with their employer to see if they have a matching program.
Many large corporations will match donations made by their employees to any eligible organization. There are studies showing that 84% of donors are more likely to donate if their gifts are able to be matched. In addition, people are willing to give a higher donation amount knowing it will be matched.
To make this easy for your donors, have an obvious spot for the information about the school’s 501(c)(3) status on your donation form and send quick and clear donation receipts. That is usually all that is required for the match to qualify.
Create a Text-to-Give Option
Technology is advancing in all areas of life and fundraising programs are no different. More and more people are conducting the majority of their business right from their phones, so consider upgrading your fundraising platforms. OneCause and Snowball both offer a text-to-give option which allows people to give right from their phones. Utilizing these services helps take care of the maintenance of your lists as well if people opt out of the text messages.
Incorporate these texts into a larger event, or use them as the main way to reach out to potential donors and students’ families. This is a great method if you already have a list of phone numbers because it can be as simple as writing up a message. Use a special anniversary date or occasion at the school to coincide with your donation ask.
Stick With Classic Fundraising Letters
There will always be the classic fundraising communication of sending out physical letters. You can send these home with students in their backpacks or mail them directly to the homes of your potential donors.
A good fundraising letter should include the mission of the fundraiser, how you are accomplishing your goal, and a call to action along with details for the recipient of the letter. It’s a great communication tool because you can lay out your plan and be specific about what you need. Fundraising letters work for raising dollars, but they can also be used if you are gathering other objects for a sale or event.
Participate in Box Tops for Education
This program has evolved from cutting the tops of cereal boxes off to a full-blown app. Now, you can use the Box Tops app to scan receipts, find products that qualify, and earn rewards for the school of your choice.
This program has been up and running since 1996 and has given over $940,000,000 to schools. Each box top coupon was worth 10 cents, but with the app now, it’s even easier to earn more money for the schools each time you shop. Schools receive checks from the programs twice each year and can use that money for anything they need.
As a school, make sure you are enrolled in the program so you can receive the benefits. It’s good to remind the parents to download this app and help earn money for their kids’ classrooms by scanning their grocery receipts. Most of these grocery items are on people’s lists anyways, so it’s extremely simple to help earn a little extra. From Lysol wipes to Pillsbury cookies, the program covers a variety of food and household products.
Sell Yearbook Ad Space
Yearbooks are a staple in the school year. Student committees work hard to put together a time capsule of the year for kids to have as a keepsake. There is also usually a page to include some advertising to help raise money for the school. Many local businesses will be interested in getting eyeballs on their ad.
This is a great opportunity to include the yearbook staff in the ad sales and get some practice in this type of business communication. Have the students put together a list of potential sponsors and work on the ask and the follow-up.
Partner with Local Restaurants or Food Trucks
Many local restaurants and food trucks will partner with schools to help raise money. The establishment will schedule a date and a certain amount of the sales for the day will be given to the school. Some of them count all sales and others will only include sales from people who are specifically there to support the cause. There are lots of national chains that have formal programs set up making it easy to schedule. For small, local businesses, schools can reach out and see if they’ll be willing to work together.
One of the most popular options is Chipotle. They will give the participating schools 33% of the proceeds from the event. Panera has a program that gives 25% of sales and offers deliveries as well. Other popular spots include Chuck E. Cheese, Boston Market, Buffalo Wild Wings, and In-N-Out Burger. It’s a perfect excuse for a family dinner out while giving back to schools.
Food trucks are another popular option if you’re looking for a fun partner to help raise some money. Reach out to local favorites and see if they are interested in hosting a similar event. Invite them to set up at the school for an after-school event or a fun lunch alternative during the day.
Ask for Permission to Keep Coin Jars on Business Counters
Coin jars are a simple way to raise funds. Many businesses will allow schools to put out jars on their counter for people to throw their loose change. You can simply reach out to locations and let them know you are raising money for a local school. If you provide the jar, a sign that explains what the money is for, and someone to collect any funds regularly, there is very little required of the business and you can help bring in some extra money.
Avoid any spots that have a tip jar out for employees because you don’t want to be competing. You want to select places that see quite a bit of traffic and may have some cash payments. Gas stations, convenience stores, and even grocery stores are great options.
The Best School Fundraising Ideas for Students of All Ages
Sell Plants or Other Household Goods
Wrapping paper used to be a popular fundraising campaign. Now, you can find all kinds of options for product fundraising. Plant sales are popular, especially before the holiday season with wreaths and poinsettias and in the Spring, which seeds and starter plants.
There are many organizations that your school can partner with to raise money. Just Fundraising is a fundraising company that offers candles as one of its most popular options. More organizations are transitioning to more specialized offerings instead of large catalogs because it simplifies order forms, the process, and maximizes the dollars raised.
Put Together School Calendars
Calendars are such a practical thing for households, especially the families of students that need to keep up with all the events and activities throughout the year. By putting together a calendar with all the fun things happening at school and all the days off and holidays, you can make some money for the school and give the families something that helps them.
The fun part of designing the calendar is deciding what you want to feature. You can select anything from student artwork to photos of events from the school. Make it something that people want to display and you’ll be able to sell more calendars. This is a simple project that requires some organization and a printer and can help you raise some money.
Encourage School Pride with a T-Shirt Sale
T-Shirt sales are a popular fundraiser because it’s another easy item to organize and order in large quantities. You can show some school spirit by putting the school’s mascot or school logo on the front. You can add your design to a website and market to people without even pre-ordering any inventory.
Facemasks are another popular option especially since the pandemic began, so you can add logos to those as well. There are many colors and designs available. Offer a few options and create a new variation each year so families can purchase each year if they want.
Host a Drive for Clothing Items like Dresses or Shoes
Many families have items at home that no longer fit or are ready to be passed on to a new home. These can be collected and sold at a community event to help raise money for the school.
One popular option is shoes. Kids grow out of shoes at a rapid pace and buying secondhand is extremely common because you don’t always want to pay full retail price when your child can only wear the shoes for a few months. Invite families to bring in any shoes that are no longer the correct fit, then the school can hold an event to sell these shoes to other school families or community members.
Another item that works well for this is dresses for school dances and special events. Most high schools and some junior high schools have a few formal dances each year. Instead of everyone purchasing new dresses for each dance, invite people to donate their used dresses to be sold to other students in a dress drive.
The leftover items for any event like this should be donated to a local charity that can use the additional inventory. Some organizations will give you a check for any items that you can collect if you want to avoid the sale portion. Funds2Orgs helps organize shoe drives and will pick up the shoes donated and hand over a check.
Use Cooking Talents to Put On a Pancake Breakfast or Chili Cook-Off
Food brings the community together, so why not host a food-centered event to raise some money? Pancake breakfasts are a common fundraiser event. A group of volunteers works together flipping hotcakes and serving them up with all the favorite toppings. Pancakes are inexpensive to make, so your supply costs are low.
You can also opt to add a little competition to the event and invite people to make the recipes. Chili cookoffs are a great event for the autumn months around back-to-school time. Lots of people have a “famous” recipe for chili. Each person can cook up a crockpot or two and allow people to pay an admission fee to taste test as many as they’d like and vote on a winner. It’s a fun way to interact with others and meet new people while cooking for a good cause.
Organize a Community Yard Sale
With the right advertising, you can attract a big crowd for a community yard sale. Invite students and their families to donate anything at home that they are no longer using. Things like puzzles, board games, clothing, sports equipment, kitchen items, and home decor are all popular items to find at yard sales like these.
Chances are, the families in your network will be happy to get rid of a few things especially when it’s helping to raise money for their kids’ school.
Collect Books to Sell in a Used Book Sale
A more specific version of the community yard sale is a books-only collection. Ask everyone to look for books they have at home that they’ve already read or outgrown. Have a collection date and invite everyone to bring in their used books so you can prep and organize them for a large used book sale.
Books can be listed for $1 each and all proceeds can go to the school and their needs. If any books don’t sell at the event, you can donate them to a library, little free libraries in the neighborhood, or even a local prison library.
Auction off Student Artwork at an Art Auction
Schools are filled with talented young artists that spend hours each week creating masterpieces. There will be plenty of creators that are happy to donate their works to be auctioned off to help raise money. Invite the students to use different mediums so you have photography, paintings, sculptures, and anything else the kids have access to use at the school.
It’s a great way to showcase the hard work of the students and invite the families and any of their friends to come and support the school. Plus, they might be lucky enough to take something home for their walls.
Create Some Sweet Treats for a Bake Sale
Bake sales are a classic fundraising event that has been working for schools and nonprofits for years. Send out information to the families where they can volunteer to bake some goodies (or purchase some to drop off) and then invite community members, students, faculty, and families to come and shop the unique baked treats.
It might be a good idea to circulate a sign-up list so there aren’t too many of the same thing. Variety leads to more success. You can offer prizes for the most popular treats. This event can make for a great holiday tradition for the school that people look forward to.
Encourage Students to Collect Pledges for a Walk-a-Thon or Similar Event
When it comes to getting students involved, pledges are a great method. Encourage students to collect pledges for an event. Many schools participate in a walk-a-thon where people will pledge a certain amount for each lap that the student completes.
Other popular options include bike-a-thons, job-a-thons, and even read-a-thon. Each option comes with pros and cons. Consider the weather when you host your event and have a backup plan for rain if you are doing it outside. Reading is a great option for kids of all ages and people can pledge them by how many books they read.
If you want to go all out and help the community while raising money, you can put together a serve-a-thon. Each student and any adult helpers can commit to a certain number of volunteer hours at nonprofits or other neighborhood organizations and people can pledge an amount of money to donate for each hour worked. That is a fun way to help multiple causes with one project.
Offer a Pajama Day or Out of Uniform Day for a Small Donation
If you grew up wearing a uniform to school, then you know how fun it is to have out-of-uniform days every once in a while. This is a perfect way to raise some money. Offer students a “free dress” pass for a certain amount of monetary donation and include some other options to earn one as well to keep things inclusive. You can offer it throughout the year on the first Friday of each month or something similar and raise some extra money that way.
For schools that don’t have a uniform, consider options that are outside the normal dress code like pajama day. You could even serve breakfast for lunch that day and make it an entire theme. Fun days like this require very little planning, so you can throw them together for some extra field trip money or one of the needs of the classroom.
Put Together a Screen-Free Challenge
Do you have teenagers that spend hours staring at their phones and scrolling social media each day? Many of us are guilty of it. One fun way to get them to put down the phone while making some money for their schools is to host a screen-free challenge. This works similarly to the walk-a-thon, but instead of gathering donations for each mile or lap you walk, students will earn dollars for each hour they can stay off their phones.
Families will thank you and be sure to sign up to participate. Younger kids are often glued to their tablets. Plus, teenagers love a challenge especially when they can prove adults and authority figures wrong. Throw in some prizes for those who can go the longest and you’ll have a fun competition on your hands.
Involve the Teachers with the Option to “Jail a Teacher”
Take advantage of the classic student/teacher role reversal by offering students the chance to put one of their teachers in jail for the day. There are a few ways this can work, but most commonly, students would have fundraising goals and once they hit a certain level, they could select a teacher to “send to jail” for the day or hour.
Obviously, jail would be the teacher’s lounge or somewhere outside of the classroom, but it would give students the feeling of power and it would provide some extra incentive to hit their goals. Instead of normal classroom tasks, the students might be allowed to watch movies or play games for the day as a reward for hitting certain goals. Fun and unique incentives like this can help make a difference with the students.
Take It Another Level and Put the Principal in a Dunk Tank
The next level of authority figure above teachers is the principal, so it might make an even bigger impact to offer up something that involves the head of the school for a prize. A dunk tank is a popular activity. The principal can volunteer to be on the chair of the dunk tank and as soon as students hit a certain level of fundraising, they will receive an additional toss. It will be up to them and their aim to dunk the principal, but even having the chance can increase participation.
Consider taking a survey of students ahead of time to see who would be their top picks to put in the dunk tank. The principal might get off easy if there are a few teachers who everyone has on their list. Have some fun with it as a school community. If the adults are good sports, it helps the students have a little more fun as well.
Utilize Student Talents and Hold a Talent Show or Battle of the Bands
Any type of performance can bring in some ticket sales, so consider putting together the best talent in the student body and putting on a show. Talent shows can feature all kinds of acts, from magicians to clowns to instrumental acts. If you have a collection of musical acts, consider hosting a battle of the bands.
With the right marketing ahead of time, these events can bring in a good number of ticket sales. Competitions are fun to watch, so you can invite some local celebrity judges like the staff at the school and even some local news anchors or sports stars. If you give people enough notice, you’ll find many willing volunteers to help the local school raise funds.
Offer Holiday Grams for Purchase at School
There are countless holidays on the typical US calendar, so take advantage of some of the celebrations to raise a little money for the school and bring some joy to the students. Holiday grams are a fun and simple fundraiser. During the holidays, offer a little festive treat to be available for order to parents and other students. Once it’s purchased, it will be delivered to the student of your choice on the holiday to bring a little extra joy to their day.
Some examples include a candy bag for Halloween, some flowers for Valentine’s Day, or maybe something unique for one of the odd holidays like National Cat Day or National Ice Cream Day. Communicate the opportunities to parents at home as well as classmates to make the most of your fundraiser. Everyone loves an opportunity to surprise a loved one.
Host a Video Game or Board Game Tournament
Competitive tournaments are fun for kids of all ages. To raise money, you can charge an entry fee for participants and they will be able to compete for a prize or prizes for the top finishers. The type of tournament depends on your students and what they would be interested in. Gather input from the kids. The resources you have access to also matter. Tournaments like Spelling Bee require only a dictionary and microphone compared to a Mario Kart tournament requires many screens, controllers, extension cords, and gaming systems.
Video game tournaments are popular now but require a bit more technology and setup. If you aren’t able to get your hands on screens and gaming systems, there are so many other options.
Board games make for great tournament games. Choose shorter games like Battleship or checkers that are perfect for head-to-head matches. Some schools host Rock, Paper, Scissors tournaments which require zero equipment and can be widely fun to watch.
There are plenty of sporting events that can be played tournament style as well if you want something more active. 3 on 3 basketball, four square, dodgeball, pickleball, or anything that has smaller teams would be a great option as well.
Elementary School Fundraising Events Best for Younger Kids
Treat the Students with an Ice Cream Social During the School Day
Create some friendly competition between classrooms during fundraisers by offering up prizes the entire class can enjoy. Treat the class that receives the most individual donations to an Ice Cream social put on by the staff where they can build a sundae and enjoy some extra free time during the day.
Another big hit is a pizza party for most kids. Anything that offers up a change in the normal routine and allows them to stay engaged with the fundraising efforts. Just make sure to consider any dietary restrictions with the kids in the winning classroom. You may need to find some gluten-free or dairy-free options for any kind of party you throw.
Invite Kids to a School Sleepover
High schools occasionally host a lock-in for students around graduation time, but why not offer kids the opportunity to spend the night at school? With enough volunteer chaperones, you can throw a great event that they will love to participate in.
Set up the school with rooms for activities. You can have karaoke contests, special crafts, and tons of games set up. Nobody wants to miss out on a giant slumber party with all of their friends. Not only can the admissions help raise money for the school, but it gives kids a chance to meet new friends and try new things. Plus, many parents will be willing to pay for a sitter overnight.
Middle School/Junior High and High School Fundraising Ideas
Put on a Summer Camp for Younger Kids
Summer camps are a popular childcare option for parents of younger children. Working at a camp can be great for college applications and resumes for older high school students. By organizing a summer camp, you can help with multiple community needs. Encourage the students to take initiative and help plan activities themselves.
With high schools having a range of extracurricular activities, you could offer specific camps run by different students or do one large camp where kids can try out multiple activities each day. There could be an art camp with special crafts throughout the week. Sports teams could hold camps for soccer, basketball, football, or more. This gives the older children a chance to gain some experience volunteering, while also helping raise money for the school.
Organize a School Dance
From Prom to Homecoming, school dances have been part of American culture for decades. The planning committee is made up of student council members and faculty and will work to set a budget, plan a theme, organize the vendors, sell tickets, and ensure everything is in order for the big event.
Tickets are sold to help cover the costs, but anything additional can be used to benefit school functions. Many families and local businesses may donate their services or products for a dance like this, so work the connections and see what you can get for free or at a discounted rate. This is a great way to teach students about budgets and marketing efforts, plus it’s a fun activity for kids to look forward to.
Raise Money with Homecoming Events
We mentioned the homecoming dances already, but there are tons of traditional homecoming events that can help raise some money for future school events. The Powder Puff game is a perfect example. This tradition varies from school to school, but it’s usually a touch football game that occurs during homecoming week for high school. The teams are made up of girls from the school and the teams can be juniors vs. seniors or cheerleaders from the two schools playing each other.
Usually, any ticket sales and concessions sold during these games will go towards things the school needs, but there can also be t-shirts and team apparel sold for the team each person is pulling for. The game is just for fun, but sometimes it ends up being a better match-up than the actual football game.
Run a Concession Stand at Sports Games
Does your school have any sports teams? Consider adding concessions to your sporting events. Rotate different student and parent volunteers to work the events. Keep the offerings simple so you don’t need a full kitchen. You can serve up sodas, water, hot chocolate, chips, and candy.
Depending on the size of the sporting events your school has, you can adjust your offerings and how many people you need to help work the events. Make sure to let the suppliers know that you’re raising money for a school and you might be able to take advantage of discounts or special perks. For example, Coca-Cola and Pepsi reps can get you free delivery, no minimum orders, and free signage.
Fundraising Activities that Involve the Adults, Too
Host a School Carnival or Festival
Fall festivals are a popular choice for fundraisers. Some schools go all out and include rides, games, and tons of food options. You can also just put together an event in your gymnasium or parking lot. Invite local bands to be the live entertainment or utilize your musical students.
These events can be scaled up or down easily depending on the budget and attendance numbers. Have some fun while planning and take advantage of whichever season you decide to have it in.
The PTA or organizing group for the event can also put together an event for the parents and gear it more towards adults instead of the kids. Giving parents a night out to get to know each other is a popular option especially for those with high school kids that don’t love carnival games and rides anymore.
Help the Community with a Car Wash or Dog Wash
Consider hosting a car wash or dog wash for your fundraising event. It’s simple to organize and gives everyone a good excuse to get outside. Plus, it’s easy for anyone in the community to participate.
The toughest part is finding the location, so check with local businesses that are on busy streets. You just need access to water and hoses. The supplies are things many people already have laying around at home, so rally your volunteers and pick a date. Try and plan during seasons with less rain and inclement weather because no one wants a car wash on a rainy day.
Put Together a Multicultural Fair
A festival of nations is an event where families can volunteer to share something from their unique cultures or traditions. Most events focus on food and drinks because they are easy to share, but music and art would be incredible as well.
This can be a really fun way to celebrate the diversity of your school’s community. Kids can learn more about the traditions of their classmates and it’s a fun event for the entire family to experience together.
Host a Holiday Event like a Haunted House or Easter Egg Hunt
Invite the community to holiday-themed events that can be organized by the students and their parents. A Halloween haunted house is a popular event that many schools organize. For elementary school students, you might want to try something a little less scary like a corn maze or trunk or treat event.
For religious schools that celebrate Christmas or Easter, you can find fun and festive ways to invite the community and family members in to help raise some money and celebrate together. You can set up a Christmas concert, sells holiday decor, or host an Easter egg hunt.
Time to Get Planning Your School Fundraiser
Gather your PTA or parent planning committee and decide which is the best for your community. Schedule multiple efforts throughout the year that are smaller or put one huge event together. Decide between online fundraising and in-person depending on health guidelines in your area. There are so many great ways to include the students and help get the funds necessary to make the school year even better. Best of luck with your fundraising success!
