Christmas fundraising ideas

Christmas is a busy time for fundraisers. Your school or non profit could be raising money for themselves or for community needs during this season. By tapping into the Christmas spirit your fundraiser can be fun to hold plus inspire your donors.

Here are a few ideas that might help you along:

Christmas Tree Sales

Have your school sell Christmas trees during the season. Put up banners with your school logo. You might even be able to partner with a local non profit who can provide sellers on the lot during the week. Working out a percentage of sales to give them will also help you increase your hours or sales from just the weekends to the rest of the week.

Santa Hat- A-Thon

For a small donation, your school or business can wear their Santa hats. Or for larger donation dress in the whole suit.

Noel -A -Grams

Great for church fundraisers. For a donation your choir can sing to individuals or at functions in the community. It’s also a good way to spread cheer during the season.

Sell Christmas Candles, Wreaths and Ornaments

There are many companies that sell Christmas wreaths online that can be shipped directly. Check for professional fundraising companies that offer candles as fundraisers.

Community Christmas Event

During the season activities like skating, tree lighting, caroling, ask for donations to community projects. Canned goods, hats and mitts are always welcome donations during this time.

These are just a few tips for Christmas fundraising ideas.Remember while your running a fundraising project with us take a team picture. We announce one team our Fundraiser of the Month and donate an extra $100 to their cause. Check out our facebook page for more details.

Halloween School Fundraising

Kids love Halloween (so do a lot of grown ups by the way)! It’s the chance to dress up as someone else and make believe for a day. Plus there’s chocolate involved which raises the stakes.

You can tie school fundraising into Halloween with a few ideas that will have even the kids excited to help out. Here is a quick list of some of the Halloween fundraising ideas we’ve seen:

Best Costume – The coolest costume wins. Kids will surprise you with how creative they can be on this one.
Pumpkin Fundraiser – Sell pumpkins in the community with donations going to the School
Pumpkin Carving Contest – Put on a school wide contest for the best carved and imaginative pumpkin contest.
School Spookyard – Age appropriate frights where kids can walk through a maze
Scary Spooky Treats – Have some students sell goblin cookies, Skeleton snacks etc to be delivered to their desks.

What fundraising ideas has your school come up with in the past?
