- Sponsored challenges are often a fun way to fundraise, and children love thinking up ideas. Channel their imaginations by having them brainstorm some manageable activities.
- A craft sale. This might include cards, bracelets, sock puppets, etc. made by the students to sell to their friend
s and family.
- Arrange a concert or talent show. This could include selling tickets or having an entry fee for family and friends to attend.
- Host an art show. This could be a unique fundraising idea. Invite students as well as local artists to contribute pieces for the show. Students as well as local artists get to display their art. Perhaps consider holding a silent auction for some of the pieces.
- A board game tournament. Teams or individuals pay an entry fee to play. Possibly set up a concession stand and consider having a local business donate a prize for the winner(s) to entice more participation.
