“Case studies: Real-world success stories of fundraising for schools”

Everyone loves to laugh. Some even say that laughter is the best medicine.

If that’s the case, your school will be full of healthy kids after you hold a comedy night fundraiser!

A comedy night can be held for children of all ages; just make sure the material is appropriate for each grade level. You can enlist the talents of local comedians to tell jokes and stories to students and their families.

Sell tickets online, during school, and at the door of the event for a few dollars. Additionally, you can sell concessions to bring in a little more cash.

Your students will be rolling on the floor with laughter after you host a comedy night fundraiser at your fundraising for schools!

Karaoke Night

Most people associate karaoke with bars, but it might be a little weird if you take a field trip to your local pub to partake in karaoke night.

Instead, host your own!

Your gym or fundraising for schools can serve as the perfect venue for a fun night of karaoke for students of all ages. You can sell tickets a week or two before the event and charge at the door for students who forgot to purchase admission beforehand.

Hosting a karaoke night is a simple and fun way to bring your students together and raise some money for your school.

Parents’ Party

School fundraising can often fundraising for schools on the students, but an effective way to raise funds is to focus on parents instead.

A Parents’ Party is a great way to get parents and local businesses involved at the same time.

Team up with a local restaurant to host your event. Many businesses are more than happy to host your fundraiser, and chain restaurants often have special programs just for fundraising. If your students are young, include child care as an added incentive to get parents to come.

This is an excellent opportunity for a corporate match campaign where a local business pledges to match each donation up to a fundraising for schools amount. It gives the business more publicity, and increases participation in your event, as parents know that every dollar they donate will be doubled.

Haunted House

Rally your students and teachers together to create a spooky fundraiser for Halloween. Each class can decorate their room with ghosts and cobwebs—anything you’d find in a haunted house.

You can charge admission to anyone who dares to enter your haunted school. Make sure the event is family-friendly so that students of all ages can attend.

Holiday Wreath Sale

Have your creative students design and create wreaths for the holidays. Since most people feel extra generous at the end of the year, selling wreaths can help you reach your financial goals for the end of the fall semester.

Have your students sell them to friends and family as well as community members. Don’t forget to promote your event in advance to let donors know why you’re fundraising.
