There is a segment of the fundraising world that has historically been grossly underrepresented. In the past, individuals and small groups looking for fundraising ideas had to deal with low profits, high minimums, and faced steep shipping charges on their orders. It was nearly impossible for groups with less than 25 or so members to make a decent profit on their fundraisers, but not anymore. With the small groups and individual fundraising ideas from Go Green Fundraising, groups as small as a single individual can raise the money they need with a great product line. Our most popular individual fundraising idea...
One of the things that holds true for all of the historically successful and immensely popular fundraising ideas is the fact that their products are consumables. Think about it. You eat the candy bars and the cookie dough, you wrap presents with the wrapping paper, and you burn the candles you buy. All of these major fundraiser ideas have a product that people love and that they use up meaning they need to buy another one sooner or later. The nice thing about candle fundraisers is that they make excellent gift ideas in addition to being a popular household item...
For most groups and organizations, their fundraising efforts are extremely important. For some groups, raising money isabsolutely vital to being able to continue to meet and pursue the purpose of the group, whether it is to buy new uniforms with a soccer fundraiser or to support cancer research with a Relay for Life fundraiser. So with so much riding on the success of their fundraisers, groups are always seeking out the top fundraising ideas. They want to find fundraising ideas with high profits, low minimums, little or no start up costs, and perhaps most importantly, fundraisers with a product line...
As the premier green fundraising company, we are asked all the time about the best PTO fundraising ideas. Parents and teachers understand better than anyone just how important the success of the PTO fundraisersare to the school and the students. And while PTOs obviously are very interested in profit margins, minimum order levels, and the cost to get started just like every other group, they tend to also be looking for educational opportunities inthe fundraising ideas they usebecause of their large number of impressionable young participants. Fundraisers with obvious tie-ins to lesson plans or with blatant educational benefits are natural...
Because there are so many rules and regulations dictating what you can and cannot do in a public school setting it can be difficult to find public school fundraising ideas that will be approved by the school board. The most common rules that your fundraisers must pass are that they have to offer a certain level of profit, they cannot cost anything to start, and they must meet certain health criteria. Some states, like Texas, have outright banned the sale of unhealthy foods on school grounds so these are real concerns that you may have to face before choosing your...
Undoubtedly, one of the most important resources that our nation has is the vast number of entrepreneurs and business leaders that work and live here. The Future Business Leaders of America is a terrific organization that strives to grow and develop these business leaders from an early age. A big part of belonging to an FBLA chapter is taking part in business competitions that test students knowledge and business acumen. While most of the expenses related to belonging to the FBLA are covered by member dues, sometimes they are not enough or the group wants to do something special and...
One of the most important high school student organizations in the country is the Key Club. As the youth affiliate of the Kiwanis International, Key Club members focus exclusively on public service projects and doing work in their communities. And with over 5,000 chapters spread all over the country, they are making a serious impact. A big part of being able to perform these community service projects is having the money to actually see them through to completion and that is why Key Club fundraisers are so important. Go Green Fundraising is excited to offer a number of socially and environmentally...

There is nothing that makes us happier than a group of young people taking it upon themselves to do something to improve the environment. One of the most common ways to do this is to start a recycling club at your school. Besides being a great way to make a difference, it is also an excellent way to spread the message about living a more sustainable lifestyle to other students. To help you get started with your club, we have put together some school recycling club fundraisers that we think you will be interested in. The concept behind all of our...
One of the really tough things about cancer is that there are just so many different kinds of the disease with different types of treatments for each of them. Some require surgery, others chemo and there are a whole slew of other ways that doctors are trying to treat and prevent cancer. But because there are so many different kinds of cancer, it means that there is a lot of need for money to further the study of cancer treatments. That is why we at Go Green Fundraising are so excited to have our line of eco friendly cancer fundraising...
It does not matter if you attend a church with tens of thousands of members or one with fewer than a hundred, there are three things that are absolutely necessary to accomplish any plans that the church might make. The first is the Lord's favor.The second is the need for church members who are willing to volunteer their time and energy towards accomplishing the goals. Thethird is money. Without proper funding even the best plans can fall flat. Of course, with the guidance of the Lord anything is possible. With that in mind, we have come up with a number...

In case you hadnt noticed, at Go Green Fundraising we are focused on one thing, green fundraising ideas and we are especially excited to have the opportunity to help out with green school fundraisers. It is such a neat and rewarding experience to see the idea of reducing ones impact on the planet spreading like wild fire throughout schools all across the country.

At Go Green Fundraising we have been working tirelessly to develop school fundraisers that PTOs can do that are healthier, smarter, and yield higher profits.

You know, sometimes, it is the unusual fundraising ideas that end up bringing in the most money. And that makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Mostof the ways that people tend to raise money are just the same old fundraising ideasdone over and over again and people are growing tired of them. But if you can offer them something that is unusual but still useful, of high quality, and offer it at a fair price, you will be really on to something. While there are no official statistics on the numbers of groups who do fundraisers, much less...
For most students, their first experience in joininga club of some sortis in high school. It is during this time that many young people become interested in subjects or causes that they are willing todevote their extracurricular timeto participating in or supporting. While some high school clubs require nothing more than a space to meet, a lot of them require some sort of supplies, or must pay fortravel costs, participation fees or even donations to specific causes. When that is the case these groups search for high school club fundraisers. The great thing about high school fundraising ideas for studentswho are...
Every Christian school in the United States is a private school. There are some obvious and amazing benefits to being a private school like the ability to have prayer in the classroom, to include bible studies in lesson plans, and to teach a curriculum that is more attentive to the needs of individual students. But being a private school also means that funding can get tight and that is why we offer our eco friendlyChristian school fundraisers and fundraising ideas. Many parents who send their children to Christian schools do so because they want more for the childs education than what...

Successful holiday fundraising ideas tend to have one very important attribute in common they almost always consist of items that can be given as a gift. Think about it, if someone approaches you with a fundraising brochure in the middle of the summer you will probably buy something for yourself and then be done. But if someone comes to you with a brochure full of holiday gift items, if the items are a good deal, you might buy 5 or even 10 items and get a good chunk of your holiday shopping out of the way right then and...
For many school fundraisers the fact of the matter is that buying a fundraising product and paying for it up front just isn't an option. There just isn't enough money in the treasury to cover the initial outlay.And with shrinking school budgets and ever increasing costs, who can blame them? No, what most schools are looking for when they search for fundraising ideas are free school fundraisers. There are really two kinds of free school fundraising programs; those that do not cost anything but time like a car wash, and those that do not cost anything to start. In this case,...
Want to know how to have a successful fundraising program year after year? Do you wish that instead of dreading the annual fund raiser that your participants and customers were excited for the chance to participate?

The key to developing this kind of loyal following for your fundraiser is to have an exceptional product at a fair price. But having a great...
The search for school fundraisers ideas seems to be a never ending one. With parents of young students joining and older students parent leaving PTAs and new school being built and new school board mandated fundraising regulations, there are all kinds of reasons that a school might search for new fundraising ideas. When you search for a new school fundraising program you first need to verify with the school board whether or not there are any restrictions on the types of school fundraisers ideasyou canuse or times of the year whenraising moneyis prohibited. One thing to keep in mind as you...
What are the easiest fund raisers? Glad you asked. The easiest fund raisers are obviously the ones that require the least amount of effort right? Of course they are. Case closed. But isnt the point of doing fundraisers to raise money? And if you are going to put forth the effort to plan, coordinate and manage a fundraising program, dont you want to raise as much money as possible? Of course you do. It has been my experience that the fund raisers that require very little effort end up having very small returns. And if your fund raiser doesnt raise very...
Soccer is one of Americas most popular youth sports and as such there are many, manyplayers who participatein soccer fund raising programs.

When you pick fundraisers for kids, especially kids that are in kindergarten or preschool, your fundraiser has to be incredibly fun. It also needs to be profitable and easy to sell, but the fun factor has proven time and time again to greatly improve the effectiveness of school fundraisers for young children. Smart parents though have started looking for fundraising options that are not only fun, profitable, and highly marketable, they have also started choosingschool fundraising ideasthat are educational. The reasoning goes that if you are going to spend the time to raise money and motivate the kids to help sell,...
One of the biggest concerns of anyone who is doing a fundraiser is how much profit do I get to keep? This is obviously a fair question to ask as the whole point of fundraisers is toraise as much money as possible and the higher the profit percentage that is offered, the more money your organization gets to keep. We understand that concern and have put together some fantastic high profit fundraisers for you to pick from. Before we get into the actual fundraising programs and their profit margins I want to make one thing abundantly clear with Go Green...
An often overlooked group that is always in need of money is the children who are home schooled. Whether they belong to a homeschooling organization that provides learning materials and training to parents, or develop their own curriculum, home schools have financial burdens experienced by few other organizations. This means that the home school fundraisers that they do have a special importance for the students. Typically, when a family or a group does home school fundraisers, they do not have the hundreds of people who can go out and sell like you do with public school fundraising. It is usually just...
One of the most common questions asked about fundraisers is how much does this cost to start? It turns out that most people who ask this question are actually looking for free fundraisers. And that makes a lot of sense because most people who are doing a fundraising program are trying to raise money because their organization doesnt have much to spend out of pocket without doing a fundraiser. Its kind of a catch 22 if you think about it, sort of the "you need money to make money" thing. The point of all of this is to say that Go...

At Go Green Fundraising we have taken the traditional approach to fundraisers that you are accustomed to and have added a twist that is leading to improved sales for bands around the country. You...
Whether young or old, most athletes are busy enough with their practice and game schedules, not to mention school work,that sports fundraisers are not their top priority. And if they are going to take the time to do a fund raiser, it has better be a good one.What most teams are really looking for when they search forideas arehigh profit sports fundraisers. When we say high profit sports fundraising we mean those programs that have products that do well with sports clubs and that have a profit minimum profit margin of 40% or better. And no matter what kind of team...
There are all kinds of reasons to do Christian fundraisers. From mission trip fundraising to church building fund fundraising tosimply raising money to feed the homeless, there is almost always something you need to raise money for when you are an involved and active Christian. It just comes with the territory. Obviously the majority of the things that require funding for Christians will be covered, or at least subsidized, by the money the church collectsduring the weekly offering.But when that funding is not enough, or if there is a special project, many people will look for some great ideas for Christian...

Drums are expensive. Horns are expensive. Uniforms are expensive. Music is expensive. Travel is expensive. Nearly every single facet of a high school bandcosts a lot of moneyand for the most part the schools and the parents cannot afford to cover all of the costs on their own. Many of the traditional school fundraisers that they have used in the past to help cover the costs are losing their luster or being banned outright (such as with cookie dough sales). That is why so many bands participate in one of the high school band fundraisers from Go Green Fundraising. Bands are...
Having worked in the fundraising industry for some time now I would say that there are nearly as many individual fundraisers as there are group fundraisers. What I mean by that is that there are a whole bunch of people out there who are raising money for something they are passionate about and they are doing it all by themselves.A couple ofexamples of reasons that an individual would do fundraisers on theirare to cover medical bills, to pay for a mission trip, or to donate money to a charity. Doingindividual fundraisers is like running a business though and to be successful...
Booster clubs exist for all kinds of reasons and for all kinds of activities. Their main purpose is to support a specific organization. That organization can be a specific team or group, or the organization can be an entire school or league. No matter the size of the organization that the Booster Club is supporting or the tasks they are asked to help with, one thing is certain, there will be Booster Club fundraisers. Booster Club fundraising programsrun the gamut, from the traditional cookie dough fundraisers, car washes, and working in concession stands, to new fundraising ideas like coffee fundraisers and...

The Future Farmers of America is a fantastic organization. Comprised of students with a desire to continue the great agricultural tradition of our country, the FFA currently has more than half of a million students as active members spread out among nearly 8,000 local chapters. The FFA is focused on providing its members leadership, personal growth, and career development opportunities in all aspects of agriculture.

The Winter break has ended and the kids are coming back to school and sports leagues are kicking into gear. They are reuniting with their friends to tell stories about their holiday adventures and they are meeting their new teachers and learning the lesson plan for the spring.

Whether coming from a military family or having a passion to defend our nation or just needing some structure to help focus their lives, thousands of high school students join and participate in JROTC activities every year. Doing so can be a life changing experience with many JROTC members committing to serve in one of the military branches upon graduation from high school or college. But, as with all organizations in high school, the JROTC needs to raise money for group activities. Many JROTC's offer their members the option of participating in drill teams, rifle teams, color guards, and drum corps....
Little League Baseball is one of the most popular ways to get kids involved in youth athletics. Not only do the kids get to learn about sports, but they also get to develop teamwork skills and can learn some valuable life lessons about hard work and winning and losing. Many little league baseball teams also inadvertently teach their players lessons about lifewhen they hold their annual little league baseball fundraisers. The most common reasons fordoing little league fundraisers areto pay for an end of season party, for refreshments during games, to pay for a gift for the team's coach, and to...
With the economy hurting there are more groups than ever looking for new fundraising ideas and there are more groups who are actually doing fundraisers because their funding is being cut or reduced. This surge in the number of fundraisers can cause some problems for your group. The problems include issues with differentiating your products. If your group, and the next group, and the group after that, and the group that showed up before you are all selling the same thing, your customers will get burned out and are less likely to buy anything at all. However, this is a relatively...
Are you part of a group that is looking for fundraisers with no upfront cash? Well, you're in luck because there are more fundraisers with no costs to start available togroups today than ever before. No upfront cash, or free fundraisers, are a great idea for groups that are just starting out or groups that are short on funding. Unlike fundraisers like candy which require the purchase of products before the sale,fundraisers with no upfront cashlet your group sell items from a catalogue. The great thing about them is that your group doesn't pay for anything that it hasn't already sold...
Besides maybe free fundraisers, the holy grail of fundraising is to find quick and easy fundraising ideas. Every group that needs to raise money wants to do so in the fastest, easiest, and most profitable way possible. But does a fund raiser really exist that offers an easy to sell product that doesnt require any special treatment that can be done in a very short period of time while still managing to raise enough money to make a difference? You better believe there is and this product is called Smencils. Its a funny name, we know, but once you learn about...

There are all kinds of school fundraisers that you can choose from; the question is which of the many different fundraisers is right for you and your school? That will depend almost entirely on what kind of school or schoo group you are raising money for. Is it an elementary school fundraising programwith hundreds of young participants or is it a high school student council fundraiser that will be done by 10-15 students? The fundraising needs of these two groups are similar in some ways and incredibly different in others but the fact remains that both need to raise money...
It is not uncommon for a large school to have hundreds of students participate in the marching band. That can mean an enormous number of dollars being spent on all kinds of things including uniforms, instruments, sheet music, and travel. And when you are paying for all of those things it is inevitable that you will have to do some marching band fundraising programs. In fact, running the marching band is often so expensive that most of them will do multiple school fundraisers throughout the year and even during the summer to be sure that all of their costs are...
A lot of groups are looking for something new to use for their fundraisers this year and with the environment in the forefront of everyones minds it makes a lot of sense to check out some earth friendly ideas for fundraisers.

All of our fundraising ideas consist of products...
Doing fundraisers for elementary schools has historically been a very stressful experience for the people who were put in charge. The process usually went something like this -youget picked to run the elementaryschool fundraising programand are made head of the fund raising committee you have a meeting to talk about what kinds of programs are approved to be used as school fundraisersin your district and at your school you call fundraising companies and search the internet for what you think would be good fundraisers you pick a program and sign up to get started then you plan a...
There are so many reasons that the eco friendly fundraisers you find here at Go Green Fundraising make the very best ideas for church fundraisers. There is a strong message in the bible that calls man to be stewards and protectors of the gifts that God gave us and those gifts include our bodies and our planet.

But for people from any kind of group to be successful with a fundraiser, it has to have products that people want to buy at a...
When you searched for free church fundraising ideas you probably didnt want to stumble onto a list of ideas that you didnt have to pay to view. Instead, you probablywant some church fundraisers and fundraising ideas that do not cost anything to start and we have a wide range of just such fund raisers. But most churches that are trying to raise money are doing so to pay for things like mission trips or feeding the needy or even to add on to the building and they areraising in the name of work they are doing for the Lord. For that...
Most of the fundraisers in America are done during the fall and the spring when schools and sports teams are most active. But that doesnt mean that fundraising stops during the summer. In fact, groups of all kinds ranging from church youth groups to animal shelters still do fund raisers during the summer.Some of the more competitive sports teams and even some school based clubs will raise money year round to take some of the load off during times when they are most busy. All of this has lead to a big need for summer fundraising ideas. The problem that a...
One of the groups that have been hit hardest by recently rolled out restrictions on food sold for sportsfundraisers has been football teams. Football teams have relied heavily on selling cookie dough over the years and that revenue stream is being cut off because of school board mandates banning the sale of sugary or unhealthy food items on school grounds or for school fundraisers. And while booster club fundraising programs can help cover a lot of expenses, sometimes the team just has to buckle down and raise some money on their own. So what are you supposed to do for...
There are all kinds of band fundraising ideas and you obviously want to pick the very best ones for your band. Any of our fundraising ideas will work just fine for a school marching band but there are a few of them that just stand out as more successful band fundraising ideas than the others. For example, our Jack Links Beef Jerky fundraiser is an extremely successful band fundraising idea. The number one band fundraiser used to be candy bar fund raisers but as the larger candy manufacturers have increased prices and the one dollar candy bar has gone away, many...
When you are raising money to add on to the church, for a mission trip, or for a special project at church you will probably start your fundraising efforts by looking for some Christian fundraising ideas.

To that end, all of our Christian fundraisers feature items that are healthy, organic, good for the planet, or green in nature.And every single one ofthe programs isdesigned to...
There are really only two ways to do a preschool fundraiser. You can either do in school fundraisers, which we will explain later, or you can do a traditional fundraiser where the students (reallythe parents) take brochures to conduct the sale away from the school and outside of school hours. Both can be very successful if you find the right preschool fundraising ideas to use. In school preschool fundraising ideas can be a number of things butthey allto take place on school grounds. You could have a preschool carnival or a carwash or you could do something like our Smencils fundraiser....
Libraries have to be constantly updated to remain effective. By adding new books and stocking periodicals libraries continue to be a great source for learning about a wide variety of topics. The costs associated with updating a library can be staggering though. The periodicals alone can cost several hundred or even thousands of dollars a year and you haven't even begun to look at buying new books. Most libraries cannot rely only on thefundingprovided by the school and instead will often look for school library fundraising ideas to help bring in the money they need. Sometimes a PTA or PTO will...
The bible clearly calls for Christians to be stewards and protectorsof the earth. God provided us many resources to watch over, manage, and use, but we must also recognize that everything around us is from Him and that we are to take great care in protecting His creation. With that in mind, many churches have looked into earth friendly church fundraiser ideas. Sometimes called "steward of the earth" fund raisers, these programs offer churches and religious organizations who feel convicted to protect God's creations a line of products that are beneficial to the earth. There are many differentkinds for church fundraiser ideas...
When it comes to high school band fundraising, we know that you need the absolute best band fundraisers possible. High school bands are extremely expensive and keeping them supplied and functioning properly requires that your fund raising programs produce substantial returns. Because it is so vital to be successful, very few bands stray from the traditional fundraising programs because they really cannot afford to have a dud fund raiser. The problem with this approach though is that if always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always gotten. And with sales dwindling for groups who...
Being a Cub Scout is one of the most fun, rewarding, and educational experiences a young boy can have, not to mention the character that begins to be shaped at such a young age. From doing the time honored pinewood derby racecars to doing service projects for local groups to learning to respect and work with nature, the Cub Scouts get to do all kinds of fun and character building activities. To help pay for these events, many Cub Scout troops will hold some sort of Cub Scouts fundraising program. To really get the most out of yourclub fundraisersefforts though, you...
You have one of the best high school marching bands in the state and you work year in a year out to be as good as you can possibly be. For years you have been applying to get to play in the big parade and last week you got the letter saying that your band has been chosen to play next year. Your mind starts racing about all of the things that you will have to do to prepare all of the hours of practice and the extra conditioning and of all of the things that you will...
Things will have gotten very competitive by the time you have reached a varsity level high school sports team. Continuing toimprove you skills and conditioning and win requires a high level of natural talent, hours of practice, and the best equipment. And as the stakes get higher, so does the amount of travel that you will do to find other high level competitors. Doing all of this can require a large sum of money and the utilization of some high school sports fundraisers. Besides being very good at your chosen sport, if you are participating in high school athletics the chances...
Want to know the most fundamental step you can take to nearly guarantee that your school fundraisers will be successful? Of course you do! The one thing that has proven itself far and away the most valuable step in raising money is to develop a detailed plan for your fund raiser. Planning your school fundraisers can prevent a lot of headaches and for many schools leads to substantially higher sales. The first step in planning your school fund raiser is to determine that are actually going to raise money. School fundraising is pretty much a fact of life for most schools...
Churches, for the most part, rely nearly exclusively on what the church members give to fund all of their projects. From paying for the building and buy juice for communion to sending a team to Africa to help drill water wells, most projects can be covered by what comes in the collection plate on Sunday mornings. But when something special arises, or if giving is down, it can mean that there needs to be some sort of church fundraisers. Because the church is likely focused on a lot of worthwhile and time consuming projects however, you probably want church fundraising...
One of the oldest tactics that people use with school fundraisers to try and get students to sell more and boost their profitsis to offer fundraising prizes. The thinking has typically gone that by offering some kind of incentive program, the students will naturally sell more. But does it really work? And is it possible that these prize programs can actually hurt your results? Based on our experience with thousands of schools all over the country, school fundraising prizes do little to help you raise more money. In fact, because the money to pay for these prizes has to come from...
Outside of a very small group of individuals, there just arent a lot of people who are extremely experienced in planning, organizing, and managing church fundraisers. In fact, almost every single person who involves themselves in church fundraising does so in their spare time as a way to give back to the church. So it is completely understandable to want some help with planning church fundraisers. Having a good plan in place before you ever start trying to raise money can make the whole process much easier and more productive so it really makes a lot of sense to spend your...
For groups like the Cub Scouts, the clubfundraisers they do need to reflect the core values of their organization. If you belonged to a team that raised money to help people with weight loss surgery you wouldnt want to sell cookie dough. In the very same way, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts shouldnt want to sell anything unhealthy, irresponsible, or any way damaging to the environment, community, or their bodies. But you also need to keep things simple and that is why many are finding a lot of success with our easy and green cub scout fundraisers. Green fundraising is absolutely...
When you are planning your school fundraisers one of the topics that should definitely be discussed is how youplan to market your program. Think that sounds complicated? It isnt; not at all. One really simple marketing tool that schools around the country use to market with is a school fundraiser flyer. The key is making sure you get the right information on the fundraiser flyer and getting them put in places that they will be seen. There are a few pieces of information you absolutely must include on your schools fundraising flyer for it to be even remotely effective. Participants need...
Eco friendly fundraisers have really changed the way that a lot of people look at fundraising. Instead of regarding fundraisers as a burden or an obstacle, groups are now finding ways to raise money with programs that better fit their needs. There are some great examples of groups discovering eco friendly fundraisers and realizing the benefits of raising money in an earth friendly way. One of the best examples can be seen in Boy Scouts fundraising. This is an organization founded on the principles of self reliance, social responsibility, and respect for the environment.For some reason a cookie dough fundraiser just...
There are smart ways to do school fundraisers and there are some not so smart ways to raise money for a school. Most of the not smart fundraisers come about when the school settles for the same old programs they have always done and for the same old results they have always seen. How many times have you heard something like Last year we sold cookie dough so thats what we should do this year versus how often do you hear The fundraiser last year was good but what other ideas could we use to raise even more money this...
One way that a Christian group can stack the cards in their favor when they are looking for ways to raise money is to check out popular Christian fundraising ideas. Its sort of the if it works for them it should work for us too routine and it is actually one of the most effective ways to pick Christian fundraisers. It is especially smart to look at what kinds of church fundraisers are most often chosen and to think about the reasons why they are picked. Most of the popular Christian fundraising ideashave easy to sell products that are typically some...
Most anyone who has worked on or participate in elementary school fundraising knows that the time commitment to have a successful program is immense. The team who is in charge of raising money, if they want to raise a lot of money, will have to work hard. There just isnt any way around that. But what if you could find elementary school fundraising ideas that work just as hard, if not harder, than you do? What if your school fundraisers did more than just act as a road towards a fatter piggy bank while still making a plump pig? There has...
One of the most pressing issues that parents and teachers are facing when they are trying to find ideas for school fundraisers is the need to find programs that are healthy for the students. The sad thing is that for a long time the only option for people who wanted healthy school fundraisers were programs that had nothing to do with food or health and therefore couldnt be unhealthy by default. And while we are very proud of the many non-food earth friendly fundraisers on our site, we are most proud of the improvements we have initiated in the area...
The internet has changed the face of fundraising as much as it has changed any industry. Instead of relying word of mouth or whatever programs you could find locally, groups can now pick from thousands of fundraising ideas and find the perfect program for their group and their needs. They can even research those ideas to get a better idea of how much money they can expect to raise before they ever start any fundraising activities. Better still is the fact that you can now conduct your entire fund raiser on the internet. Thats right, with online fundraising ideas like our...
As an individual trying to raise money you have probably already run into one of the big dilemmas that all people raising money by themselves run into there just arent many options available that you can realistically do. Sure, there are thousands of fundraisers you could pick from, but nearly all of them have some kind of minimum that is nearly impossible to reach when you are raising money alone. What you need then, it would seem, are some easy fundraisers for individuals that either have extremely low minimums or no minimums at all. They also need to return...
Tired of always seeing the same old fundraising ideas? Really wishing there was something new and cool and fun that you could do to raise money? Youre not alone. Every year, literally tens of thousands of groups search for cool fundraising ideas for the exact same reasons that you are. Whether it is burnout from doing the same programs every year, or declining sales, or just a desire to shake things up with a fun product, the fact remains that you want cool fundraising ideas. And there are in fact a number of routes you can take. You could, of course,...
No matter who is in charge of your school fundraisers, be it the school administrators, the teachers, or the PTA or PTO, a typical school fundraiser is going to take a lot of work and will inevitably cause disruptions to the learning environment. And the fact of the matter is that there are very few schools who can get away with not doing some kind of fund raiser so the ideal situation would be to find fun, educational, non-disruptive, profitable, and easy school fundraising ideas. But if you have been involved with your schools money raising efforts in the past, you...
Belonging to a church choir is a great way to publicly worship God.The bible clearly calls peopleto worship and praise the Lord and what better way to do so than to sing out to Himwith allof your heart and all of your soul? Many church choir members say that being a part of the choir is an incredibly rewarding experience but they also note that performing well takes quite a bit of work. The church choir doesn't just don their robes, walk on stage, and belt out beautiful music to the Lord; they spend hours and hours practicing every week. Practice time...
If you play sports at any level other than theprofessional ranksthe chances of you needing to dosports fundraisers of some kind ranges right around the 100% range. For nearly every sports team in America, in fact, fundraising is just as much a part of competing as are uniforms, practices, and orange slices.But you dont want to waste a bunch of time selling stuff when you could be practicing and getting better at your game. And you definitely dont want to sell something with a low profit margin because that would take too long. What you need then are some sports...
One of the most fundamental callings that Christians have is to spread the message of Gods word and of the sacrifice Christ made for us and of the path to salvation as it is presented in the Bible and Christians the world over, and for hundreds of years now, go on mission trips to fulfill this duty. They are also called to serve others with service being a major theme of a typical mission trip. Oftentimes a church will help sponsor a mission trip but the sponsorships do not always cover all of the costs and that leads to fundraising...
One of the most common ways for people going on mission trips to raise money has been to send out mission trip fundraising letters in the hope that people will contribute money. So that lead most of the people doing mission trip fundraising to ask about what kinds of things to put into these fundraising letters and about the best ways to use them. As with any church fundraisers that you might do, a mission trip fundraising letter needs to include a detailed description of what kind of work you will be doing. The better you can describe what you will...
Private schools provide all kinds of great opportunities for students to grow and learn without the restrictions that are inherent in a public school setting. Lesson plans can be tailored to better fit the needs of the students and the overall level of involvement and achievement tends to be much higher at private schools. But private schooling is not cheap and most rely on school fundraisers to help supplement the money that comes in as tuition. Many schools even have required fund raising participation levels for the parents. This high level of need for funding has led to a near...
There is no denying the fact that our nation is getting bigger. Not bigger by population (although that is true as well), but bigger in our waist lines. For this reason dieting, exercise, andpaying attention what we eatis becoming more and more important to more and more people. Nearly all aspects of society are being affected by this and the world famous Girl Scout cookie sale is not immune. In 2009, for the first time ever, the Girl Scouts sold fewer cookies than they did the year before. Now a percentage of that is probably attributable to the slacking economy but...
Anyone who has ever dealt with the Boys and Girls club knows that it is one fantastic organization. By providing a safe and secure place for young people to hang out, play sports, and grow up, the Boys and Girls club offers one of the most important resources in America today. But in doing so, they tend to rack up some serious expenses and to pay for them people often turn to Boys and Girls Club fundraisers. In the vein of providing a safe place to spend their time, many of the Boys and Girls Club fundraising ideas focus on providing...
Uniforms, equipment, travel, halftime refreshments, tournament fees, coaching, etc, etc, etc; looking at that list you quickly see just how much goes into a sports team and just how expensive it can get.

But what are the best fundraisers for a sports team and how do you pick the right one? Because the whole point of doingfundraisers for a sports teamis to cover the teams expenses the thing to consider is how profitable the fundraiser can...

Little League fundraising has become quite the competitive venture in the last couple of years. As more and more youth athletes join the Little League, there are more and more teams with more and more players all of whom need to raise money.

Cheerleading is an expensive sport to participate in. Many people outside of the sport do not realize it, but there is a lot of money required to be a cheerleader. Because of this, the very vast majority of cheer squads turn to some sort of cheerleading fundraiser to help supplement what their school, team, or parents can contrbute. Some of the more expensive things that need to be paid for to be a good cheerleader include equipment, which can range from the right shoes to matching pom-poms,to private training and coaching,to the costs of travelling to cheer contests. With cheerleading being...

Future Business Leaders of America chapters looking to have a fundraiser have a great new fundraising option in green fundraising. Green fundraising programs are just like other school fundraisers but with one exceptional twist: the products are all earth friendly, organic, or all natural. The reason this is so great for FBLA chapters is that it gives group members a chance to show that they care about the environment while at the same time developing their leadership skills. Plus, as you will see, this FBLA fundraising idea can return some serious profits. Green fundraising is a relatively new fundraising idea. The...
There are more than 6 billion people on the earth. Think about that. Even if you live in one of the biggest cities in America there are no more than a couple of million people who live around you. 6 billion people is 750 times the population of New York City. That is a lot of people and the impact on the earth from all of those people is dramatic. As an individual, it is easy to feel small and the thought of not having an impact is a common one. But, that just isn't true. Individuals can impact serious change...
Breast cancer is a terrible disease that affects our moms, sisters, wives, and daughters. But even with thousands of new cases being diagnosed every year, no one is taking the fight against breast cancer lying down. In fact, quite the opposite is true with the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk being a fantastic example of people literally coming to their feet to raise money and show their support for those dealing with the disease. Participating in the walk requires walkers to raise a set amount of money and that means its time to do a breast cancer...

Students selected to participate in the People to People Student Ambassadors program are presented with a fantastic opportunity to learn about the world we live in and spend time actually interacting with a different culture. The education and experience students receive during these trips is a once in a lifetime chance. But the trips arent cheap and unless you have very wealthy family members, chances are pretty good you are going to need some People to People fundraising ideas. The problem you will quickly run in to is finding club fundraisers that make sense for an individual raising money for themselves....
There is a mass movement in schools around the country to be healthier and more environmentally friendly places for students to learn and grow in. Evidence for this can be seen in the huge number of recycling clubs that are forming as well as the number of schools planting their own gardens and those working to eliminate Styrofoam from the cafeteria. Another area of change, and the one that likely brought you here, is the move towards green school fundraisers and a search for the greenest school fundraising company. With the most number of green fundraising ideas ranging from our flower...
The fact that you are looking for fundraising ideas means you probably dont have a lot of spare money sitting around that you can spend to start an expensive fund raising program. The more likely scenario is that you are searching for some inexpensive fundraising ideas so that there isnt much financial risk to your group. There are really just four methods of raising money employed by groups no matter of who they are or why they are raising money. You can do a brochure based fundraiser where you pre-sell items; you can do a direct sell program like a candy...
Whether its for student government, city government, or a bigger race, there are a number of things that remain constant for all campaigns. There will be signs, there will be hands shaken, and there will be fundraisers. Obviously the more important the position, the more money will need to be raised and the more sophisticated the campaign fundraising ideas will need to be. For major campaigns like those for governor and for congress there will be a campaign fundraising person in charge of raising money. But for more localized races, that job can fall on someone who does many other jobs...
Nearly all fundraisers done in America happen during the school year. This is true for sports leagues and many clubs like the Boy Scouts as well because the months of August thru December and January thru May are when most groups are busy meeting and are in need of funds. But that doesnt mean there arent groups who do summer fundraisers. Quite the opposite in fact and if your group is looking for summer fundraising ideas, you may be running into some issues that we would like to help you solve. The biggest hurdle that groups selling during the summer months...
There are millions of high school students who play high school sports and almost every single one of them will participate in some sort of high school sports fundraising program during their athletic careers. Sports fundraisers are just one of those inevitable parts of playing a competitive sport, and much like wind sprints, it can require a lot of work but the payoff can be enormous. There has been an interesting phenomenon of late though that is causing many high school sports teams to look for high school fundraising ideas that are a bit different than the ones they would typically...
Fundraising for sports is as much a part of sports culture as practice, disagreements with refs, the thrill of victory and the sting of defeat. The problem though with doing the same things over and over again, as any good coach can tell you, is that participants get bored and there is always a point of diminishing returns where continuing to do the same thing results in less and less improvement. All of which is to say that it is definitely time for some new sports fundraisers. There are all kinds of reasons fundraising for sports is so important and a...
A lot of schools and offices have started putting together recycling clubs to help promote environmentalism and to urge students and employees to do their part for the planet. These clubs take quite a bit of work to organize and manage but that work is very rewarding, especially when you see people who may not have recycled in the past start doing so and watch them realize the positive impact their efforts have on the environment. Getting started with a recycling club can be a little pricey because you have to buy things like collection buckets and it can help...
There may be nothing that colleges look at more when trying to make an admissions decision than the well-rounded-ness of a student. And, one of the best ways to gain the real world experience colleges are looking for is to participate in a study abroad program. People to People Student Ambassadors is an organization that individual students can participate in that helps to coordinate study abroad trips. The trips typically last 3 weeks and can be truly life changing in the access they provide to people of different cultures. The program cost for a trip abroad is around $7,000, a hefty sum...
The scouts, both boys and girls, are founded on the principals of treating your neighbor as yourself and on being good stewards and explorers of the earth. Traditionally, these organizations have relied on the same fundraisers that all other groups use. They tend to sell candy and cookie dough and have car washes and the girl scouts are world famous for their delicious cookies. Now, however, there is an option that seems like it was put together specifically for the benefit of the scouts. The concept of eco friendly Scouts Fundraisers is really great and a fantastic fit for boy scouts...

One thing that has changed in the not too distant past for parents and teachers looking for school fundraisers was the introduction of the school fundraising policy. These policies are designed to help you find appropriate fundraising ideas that have met the approval of the school board, the PTA, or even the state. And while they may seem like a burden or a hassle, especially if the program you want to do is on the list, knowing the school fundraising policy before you ever start planning your fund raiser can save you a lot of headaches, and can even help...
Are you the coach or parent of an athlete on a sports team? If so, you probably know all about sports fundraisers and how important they are to the success of the team. You may not be aware though of the difference you can see in results depending on which sports team fundraisers you choose to do. One story that we hear over and over again from people doing sports team fundraisers is that their sales are hurting because so many other teams are selling the exact same items. And these frustrations are well founded because, when you think about it,...
Most of the fundraising products you see are designed to appeal to people in the 12-90 year old age group.

One of the most exciting events of the year for high school students is prom. Its a great night of fun with dates, tuxedos, gowns, and limos. Many school proms are held in ball rooms or local convention centers because they offer a lot more space and its more to have prom off campus than to do it in the cafeteria or the gymnasium. Renting out these spaces and decorating them costs money though and that is why it is so important to do school prom fundraisers to help cover the expenses. Of course, ticket sales will help cover a large...
If your school is looking for something a little different this year I strongly urge you to look into the exciting new area of green school fundraising products. Instead of selling the same old candy bars or frozen cookie dough that youve sold in the past, you owe it to yourself, the school, and the students to check out some healthier and more environmentally friendly school fundraisers. And thats really the whole point of green school fundraising products eliminating junk food and junk items from fundraising. The aim is to make your school fundraiser healthier and more educational than they...
Just like any other competitive sports team, whether it be associated with the school or as an private club team, volleyball players need to do sports fundraisers.

So it is extremely important for volleyball teams who want to remain competitive to find great volleyball fundraisers that raise a bunch of money very quickly so they can get back to practice. We have many great sports team fundraisers that...
There a many different types of elementary school fundraisers out there and choosing the right one can mean the difference between getting a new playground and teaching from used workbooks.

At Go Green Fundraising, our elementary school fundraisers primarily focus on product sales. But weve taken this type of school fund raiser and turned it in a whole new direction....
Yearbooks, much like time capsules, are a great way to preserve the past. They are a lot of fun to look back on 20 years later and laugh at the silly haircuts and they are also great fun for the students who put them together. At many schools, the students will form a yearbook club who is in charge of putting together the yearbook which includes laying out the book, taking pictures of special events, and interviewing the most interesting teachers and other students. Most of the cost of printing the books is covered by what people pay for the...
There are all kinds of ways to approach the challenge of raising the money that your organization needs. And there are nearly as many ways to divide up the different kinds of fundraising ideas to help you narrow down your choices. For example, you could decide between event fundraisers or product sales; brochure based fund raisers or direct sell products; traditional programs or clever fundraising ideas. The choice is all yours. We have found that for many groups, clever fundraising ideas make a lot more sense than just sticking with the old ideas that are getting a little long in the...
One of the oldest truisms in all of management is that happy workers are hard workers. We all know this to be an accurate statement and most people can point to some area where they were much more productive when they were having fun than when they werent enjoying themselves. So it just makes intuitive sense that choosing fun fundraisers would be a very smart thing to do if you want to meet your fund raising goals. When you really think about it, any fundraisers that you pick could be made fun if you have the right people around you. Raising...
The fact that you are searching for fundraiser ideas for schools means that you are either doing school fundraisers for the very first time or that you are interested in at least exploring what ideas are out there that are different from the fundraisers you did previously. Whichever category you fall into, you obviously want to raise as much money as possible and we want to help. The most important thing to remember when you are narrowing down the fundraiser ideas for schools that you are going to pick from is that the specific fund raiser you pick is going to...
Fast fundraising ideas will allow you to raise all of the money that you need in a very short period of time, its that simple.

There is a fund raising idea that is not only fast, but it is good for the planet, offers high profit, has extremely simple terms, and...
All over the United States, homeowners have come together to form neighborhood and homeowners associations. These groups can be formed to help manage certain aspects of the neighborhood like determining aesthetically pleasing paint colors and gardening standards, to help pay for general maintenance to the neighborhoods common areas, or to make improvements to the neighborhood like planting flowers at the entrance to the community. Some of these groups charge fees while others rely more on raising money with neighborhood association fundraising ideas. If you are in charge of the HOA, your neighbors will really appreciate it if you can bring in...
Smart fundraising coordinators know that the secret to meeting their financial goals year after year is to always be on the lookout for creative fund raising ideas. Doing this can help set them apart from other groups raising money and can make the whole fund raising process more fun for the participants which invariably leads to better results. What will qualify as creative fundraising ideas and how successful those ideas will be depends a lot on what kind of group you belong to. For example, getting creative and having a lift-a-thon just wouldnt make much sense for an animal shelter fundraiser....

If you are willing to spend the time to put together a fund raising program, you are obviously interested in funding your organization. And if you have the passion necessary to put in...
Church fundraisers are most commonly done to raise money for something special that falls outside of what the church typically pays for. For example, you might raise money to pay for a mission trip or to go on a church retreat or even to build a playground for the church youth. If you have been going to church for very long, you have probably participated in or at least seen a church fund raiser going on. And the chances are very good that those fundraisers were something along the lines of a bake sale, a flower bulb fundraiser, or something similar....
Environmental Clubs, just like nearly all other organizations, need to raise money to cover their various expenses each year.

It can be a good idea to create a sort of soccer fund that your soccer team can use when needs arise. The following story is a good example of an unexpected reason to have a soccer fund available. When I played for a select team in my early teenage years we would occasionally travel around the state to play in a number of tournaments. Some we expected to do well in while there were some we did not expect to do so well. But we would play them all just for the experience and because we knew that competing would...
Participating in peewee football or highly competitive high school football doesn't change it. Nor does it matter if you will go undefeated or if you wont win a game. No, no matter what kind of football team you play for, there are some things you will have in common. You will practice; you will have equipment; you will travel to games; you will have loads of fun and make lifelong friends; you will do some sort of fundraiser. And since every football team is doing something to raise money, it makes a lot of sense to look for new, fresh...
The ideas that people use for football fundraising programs, just like for many other groups, have been changing. The change is in response to all kinds of pressures like the desire (or requirement) to offer healthier alternatives, the need to raise more money year after year, and the desire to simplify the whole process. Fortunately, your football team has many options for simplifying the entire fundraising for football experience. We heard our customers asking for better fundraising for football options and set out to create a program that addressed not just one or two of their concerns, but that would meet...
While some football teams are fully funded by the school district and the booster club, most teams need to utilize at least one football fund raiser during the season. Football fundraising ideas range from selling items in a concession stand at games to selling candy bars to doing lift-a-thons with literally thousands of other ideas to choose from. Here we will highlight some of the best fundraising ideas football teams can use that feature healthier and more environmentally friendly products. Most football fundraising ideas tend to revolve around food. Food tends to be an easy product to sell with ideas ranging...
Looking for youth football fundraising ideas is very much like looking for elementary school fundraisers because in the vast majority of cases it will be the parents and the coaches who do most of the selling and work rather than the team members themselves. Outside of the timid calls to grandparents, the responsibility for selling items is solely left to the adults. That means that you should definitely seek out football fundraising ideas that appeal to adults. For most groups, that means getting away from the old fashioned and unhealthy cookie dough or candy fund raisers. And if you are going...
Raising money for your church can be one of the most rewarding experiences.

The first and probably most important tip that...
Fundraising ideas for Christians are not really all that different from regular fundraising ideas except for one major area. The big difference you will find is that when you are doing Christian fundraisers, your focus in raising money is on God and serving others in His name. When non religious groups raise money, they often need to have meetings and pep rallies to keep everyone excited and focused on selling. Not so with fundraising ideas for Christians. Whether the program is to raise money for a mission trip, to stock a local food pantry, or to add on to the church,...
We understand that the term church youth group is pretty broad and covers a huge range of variables that may describe your specific youth department. Some of the variables I am talking are things like church size, youth department size, religious affiliation, age of the church, size of the staff, etc. With all of those possible differences it can seem like the fundraising needs of these departments would be vastly different. But I think Go Green Fundraising may be able to change your mind about that with our earth friendly fundraising ideas for christian youth groups. The most popular program that...

Things are changing in the world of fundraising and that fact may be more true for elementary school student fundraising than for any other group or type of organization. The traditional fundraising ideas that so many schools have relied on for decades are falling out of favor. Some school boards have started banning the sale of unhealthy items like frozen cookie dough as a means to raise money. Some of the larger chocolate and candy bar manufacturers have decided that in the face of rising costs they will abandon the fundraising market altogether. Additionally, the largest supplier of the holiday item...
The average student group or club consists of ten to twenty members and meets about once a month.

One often forgotten fact about doing school fundraisers is that you have to keep the students motivated. Many people have tried over the years to come up with different techniques for keeping everyone pumped about the students fundraising program. Some of them have worked, while others, well, not so much.

Student Organization is an awfully broad term. It can mean a group of college students who do public service works, a high school football team, or a collection of home schooled students who come together to share lessons and ideas. Regardless of what type of organization it is though one thing remains as nearly universally true for these groups they all use some type of student organization fundraising ideas. There are nearly as many student organization fundraising ideas as there are student organizations so it can be difficult to narrow down your selections if you are new to the process...
Successfully fundraising for student organizations can be much easier than you might expect based on what you have heard or even experienced with past fund raisers if you take the time to get things organized before you ever begin the actual student fundraising programs. After working with thousands of groups, we have found that there are some simple steps which are absolutely imperative to having good student fund raisers. Stay Organized For most PTA moms or student organization sponsors, the concept of staying organized just comes as second nature but this is key for even the most organized people. You want to...
Whether or not you agree with the idea that man made global warming is real and that it is speeding up and something needs to be done you certainly cannot deny that man does impact the planet and that there are things that people can do to reduce that impact that do not necessarily require drastic life style changes. Evidence like the enormous floating heap of plastic bits in the Pacific Gyre are excellent, albeit tragic, proof of the impact we have but also show us a great opportunity for change and the importance of reducing our plastic waste. It is...
Go Green Fundraising offers a wide range of eco minded student fundraising programsthat work perfect as fundraising ideas for students. Here is a list of some of our most successful fundraising ideas for students: Smencils - The easiest way to sell Smencils is to set up a booth somewhere in your school and have a person there who can sell the pencils throughout the day. A similar idea is if you have a school store you can put the Smencils in the store and sell them there. If neither of those options work you can simply give a bucket of Smencils...

The smart teachers, administrators, parents and students are choosing earth friendly fundraising. Why? you ask? Well, there are quite a few reasons that student fundraising is being revolutionized by Green fund raising. The reality is that your student fund raising effort is just like running a small business. You have a product that you are trying to sell in order to raise a profit. And, just like in business your students will face the realities of supply and demand and they will face competition from other student fund raisers. For this reason, choosing green schoolfundraisers just makes a lot of sense. Perhaps...
A key point you want to address when doing a high school fundraising program is figuring out the best way to motivate the students to raise the most money that they can. There are a bunch of ways to work on motivating high school students like offering incentives to those who sell the most, keeping each student personally responsible for the money they raise, raising money for a cause they legitimately care about, and making sure each student takes ownership over his or her roles in the fund raising process. Another way to motivate them is to pick a fundraiser...

High school students are a breed apart from students at any other age. They are just independent enough to try things on their own but most arent yet fully responsible for themselves and that leads to a level of confidence and bravado you just dont find with most other age groups. It is very exciting to see them figuring themselves out and discovering what they do and do not like and really growing into adults. Part of that process is participating in extracurricular activities like sports, music, and joining clubs. Another big growing experience that comes from being a part of...

Fundraising for high school students is different than trying to raise money at any other school. In elementary school and junior high the focus is on school fundraisers that the whole school does. The administration or the PTA chooses the programs that every student participates in. For a high school fundraiser, the focus of the efforts is typically on an individual organization or team with the benefits going directly to the team or towards a specific cause they want to help like a local food bank. The difference between this kind of fundraiser and those done by clubs at colleges and...
More than six million parents make the decision each year to enroll their child in a private school. There can be a number of reasons for this including the higher quality of the education provided and the ability of private schools to share religious views. There are all kinds of private schools with all kinds of backgrounds but there is one constant across all private schools; they are not cheap. And because these schools do not receive funding from the state, they typically must look for private school fundraiser ideas to help supplement or even outright pay for essential courses...
Those with students attending private schools will know exactly what we mean when we say that you are expected to contribute more to the school fundraisers than almost any other group who supports any type of organization. The vast majority of private schools even have a minimum fundraising participation level that parents must meet on top of the regular tuition that they pay. That means that when you pick private school fundraisers you really want to pick programs that the parents will want to participate in because there isnt much that is less fun than having to do something you...
Christ calls all Christians to service. He lived his life serving others, especially those who needed his help the most. He also called us to continue that service in our lives through missions work. We are to go out and serve others and preach the word of salvation. Mission trips can be big or small, near or far. They can include digging wells for water in Africa or repainting an elderly persons house right around the corner. The point is that we serve others and show the love of Christ in our own lives and actions. When a group decides to go...

Just what are the PTA fundraising essentials? That is a question you may be asking yourself if you are in charge of the PTA fundraising program or if you are on a committee charged with the same task.

One of the best ways to boost the sales in your PTA fundraising programsis to notify the parents about the fundraiser and make sure that they get the message. After all, for most schools, it is the parents who end up doing the selling anyway and if they dont know that you are fundraising, then they cant sell anything. One of the best ways to inform them is to send out a PTA fundraising letter that goes over the program and the reason for the school fundraisers.

When the parents who lead the PTA fundraisers go to choose the school fundraisers they will be doing for the year they tend to lean in one of two directions. They either choose easy PTA fundraiser ideas or they choose high profit and high sales PTA fundraising ideas.

But at Go Green Fundraising we have a PTA fundraising idea that is not only easy and high profit but is also good for the...

Elementary school PTA fundraisers have a lot more riding on them these days than they did when I was in elementary school. Back in my day, we sold cookie dough and when it was warm outside, the PTA moms would set up a booth and sell snow cones. There was never much thought put into considering what the best PTA fundraisers might be and this was long before anyone considered a sugary snow cone a bad thing. Plus, there were only a handful of other elementary schools in the immediate area so the idea of competing for elementary school fundraising...

The annual school PTA fundraiser is hugely important to most schools. The typical school absolutely relies on the efforts of the dedicated parents of the PTA to provide funding for all kinds of expenditures that go above and beyond the state allocated budget for the school.

Elementary school fundraisers, those ever present, ever important efforts to raise money that take place in every corner of the country each fall and again each spring. In this day and age of shrinking school budgets and ever increasing demands on the school system to provide a high quality education in a world of exploding competition, successful elementary school fundraising efforts can mean the difference between maintaining or even adding important coursework and, well, not. All of that may seem to place a lot of pressure on what would at first glance appear to be a fun, if not necessary, elementary...
Fundraising for elementary schools can certainly be tough these days. One major obstacle schools are facing is school boards and concerned parents narrowing the selection of, or even outright banning, traditional elementary school fundraising programs like candy and cookie dough because of health concerns. In one extreme (and amazing) case, the state of Texas has mandated that sugary foods cannot be sold on campus during school hours. Another issue that can hamper the results you see whenfundraising for elementary schools is the sheer number of schools who are trying to raise money and the very real effects of competition on the success...

But there is an AP article out today that can be found at http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_school_lunches that explains that even with healthier options available, many school kids just arent taking the bait and are instead opting for the unhealthy options. So how can make a change here? What kinds of...
Many times, when you get down to it and run the numbers, elementary school catalog fundraisers just tend to be the most successful elementary school fundraising programs. And thats not to say that direct sell programs like our Smencils fund raiser arent successful. Its just that for most schools, the fact that our catalog fundraisers are free to start and offer some great products and profits just makes them too hard to resist. One of our primary missions here at Go Green Fundraising, besides helping you to raise as much money as possible for your elementary school, is to get you...
Cheerleaders, just like pretty much every other group, club, or team in high school have to raise money. Whether its to buy new uniforms or equipment or to travel to a competition, high school cheerleader fundraisers are just a necessary part of being able to participate and compete. There is just a really great demand for funding that schools and parents simply cant cover and so cheerleading fundraising programs must be done. In the high school setting, cheerleaders face a challenge that they dont necessarily face when they are younger so many other groups who also need to raise money....
Its not much of a secret that fun is one of the key ingredients in school fundraisers that raise lots of money. Without a good helping of fun, it can be really, really difficult to get people excited to participate in the first place and even harder to keep them interested over the course of your fund raiser. That should be obvious. What does appear to be a secret however are the fun school fundraisers that are out there that you can do right at your school! The big names school fundraisers - cookie dough, candy bars, holiday gifts tend...
Even with all of the advances in educational technologies, there is still a need for a good old pen or pencil in elementary school classrooms. From art projects to learning how to write, kids need something to draw, write, and color with. So youve got this ever-present demand for writing utensils while at the same time youve got a never ending need for elementary school fundraising programs to pay for all kinds of things. So it just makes complete and total sense to do your elementary school fundraising with Smencils and Smens. But Smencils and Smens go WAY beyond simply being...
You may or may not already know that there are basically two types of product based fundraising programs; one with items you buy up front and the other which uses catalogues for you to pre sell products. Nearly all fundraising ideas will fall into one of these two categories. What you may not know is there is a bunch of different ways that you can pay for your fundraisers. This article in our How to do Fundraisers series is going to help you understand the many different types of payment that Go Green Fundraising accepts for your groups fund raiser order....
There are all kinds of PTA moms out there. They come in all shapes and sizes. The kids they are working for can range from 5 to 19 years old. They come from all kinds of background and have amultitude of different and very valuable skills. And they live in every corner of the country. But there is one thing that I think every PTA mom would agree that they have in common they are busy! There is only so much time in a day and most moms work incredibly hard just taking care of their own families and...
Uh Oh, its December and you still need money in the school treasury to fund the field trip when the kids come back in January. What are you going to do? You know that you dont have time to send home catalogs with all of the students and expect to get them back in time. And you dont have time to plan some big, elaborate school fundraiser event. You really need to find some end of the school year fundraisers that can be done quickly and that will raise a lot of money. While there are lots and lots of different...
Because you have reached this page, it has to be safe to assume that you are a PTA parent or teacher or are in some way involved in your schools PTA fundraising efforts. And for that reason, it is also pretty safe to assume that you feel like there are too many school fundraisers anyway. We have worked with hundreds of schools and it appears that limiting it to only 2 PTA fundraisers each year, one in the fall and another spring, can actually help you raise more money. By doing only 2 programs, you eliminate burnout and help everyone...
There sure are a bunch of different elementary school fundraising products that you can pick from and sell to raise money. There are the traditional products for elementary school fundraising programsthat we are all so familiar with like cookie dough or wrapping paper. But there are also some great choices out there for elementary schools that want to raise money in a manner that is healthier, better for planet, or smarter than the programs theyve used in the past. Some schools even look for new ideas, not because their old program isnt successful anymore, but just to shake things up...
PTA parents and teachers around the country have been looking for different ways to raise money for quite some time now. There has long been a serious need for PTA fundraising ideas and products that are more effective for the school. Its not good enough anymore to just send home some cookie dough flyers and assume that the students or their parents will sell tubs for you. No, with many kids involved in multiple organizations, many of which are also raising money with basically the same products, your PTA will need to get creative if you want to meet your...
Weve talked before about holiday themed fundraising ideas and how beneficial they can be. Themed fundraising ideas have long been a terrific way to get more people excited about and involved in your fund raising efforts. And the holidays, at least the major ones, are a great theme to build your sale around. Most of you have probably experienced a holiday fundraiser before. All of those gift item sales and wrapping paper fund raisers youve done in the past were done specifically because they were appropriate for the winter holidays. But what about other holidays that you can build a theme around?...
Many groups do multiple fundraisers throughout the year to meet their monetary needs. But as you add more and more sales, it can be hard to keep people motivated and interested in helping no matter how good your cause is. One of the easiest ways to constantly engage your sellers and your customers is to have a theme for each of your sales that makes them relevant and helps differentiate from the other fund raisers you do over the course of the year. One simple idea that is very effective is to use holiday themed fundraising ideas. Holiday themed fundraising ideas...
Lets cut right to the chase here. Youre not looking for the worst elementary school fundraisers because that would just be silly. What you really want are the BEST elementary school fundraising ideas. You want to be able to raise as much money as possible in the shortest possible amount of time with the least possible amount of effort. You may also want some healthier fundraising ideas or some school fundraisers that dont feature foods at all. That may be because your elementary school is focusing on health or going green or it might even be because the state has decided...
When I was a kid, there was one sport that was, at least in my mind, the best and most fun sport that anyone could ever play. What was that sport? Soccer! I still cant explain why, but there was just something about playing soccer that stood out for me and made it so much more fun than all of the other sports that I played. I was on a pretty good team and as we grew older we were always traveling to tournaments around the state and that got really expensive, really fast. So we turned to sports fundraisers throughout...
Some sports, like swimming and golf, are very individualized and there is a certain set of sports fundraisers that work for them. Likewise, there are teams like high school football teams with up to 100 athletes on them who can do the really big fundraising ideas because they have enough participants. But what kinds of programs are best for soccer team fundraisers when you have 20 or so participants? Most soccer teams dont have a huge reserve of cash lying around just waiting to be spent on fundraising products so that eliminates most of the direct-sell fund raisers you are familiar...
While fundraising is obviously a necessary activity at any school, many parents, teachers, and administrators are starting to become concerned with taking away too much class time to promote their school fundraiser. This concern is completely understandable as class time is about learning and not about trying to raise money. But, because the fund raiser has to be done one way or another, many schools are looking for easy school fundraising ideas that they can do without interrupting the learning environment. The easiest way for a school to raise money without wreaking too much havoc on learning is to do a...
One of the most exciting things for us here at Go Green Fundraising is knowing that our school fundraisers are helping teachers and parents do more with their sales than just raising money.

We are all way too familiar with the fundraising ideas that have been out there forever. You know what Im talking about; cookie dough, candy bars, wrapping paper, and holiday gifts.

And as a cheerleader, cheer coach, or cheer parent, you are ready for some creative cheerleading fundraiser ideas that you can use to break out of the monotony and to have a record breaking fundraiser. The hard part about getting too creative when you...
Christian schools range in size from very small with only a few students in each grade to gigantic schools that match the size of any public school. But even as different as they are based on populations, there are some things that are true for all Christian schools. They all have an education that is based on biblical teaching and they all try to instill fundamental Christian principles, of whatever denomination, into the students. And they also do Christian school fundraising programs. Without the support of the public, Christian schools must rely on tuition, donations, and school fundraisers to pay for...
Looking for church youth group fundraising programs and ideas? Have you considered discount cards for a church youth fundraiser? They work great and can help raise a lot of money very quickly. Lets take a quick look at why discount card fundraisers are such a smart choice for youth groups at churches. There are some hurdles that a lot of church youth groups face when they look for good church fundraisers to do. One is that many of the brochure based programs have minimum order levels that are just unrealistic for the size of most youth groups. Similarly, many of the...
Every one, and I mean EVERY ONE, is ready for the winter break when it rolls around. The teachers need some time away to relax and regroup and the students need time to rest and not worry about schoolwork or test or athletics. Parents usually also appreciate the respite and the time it allows them to spend with their kids. The winter break also means time off for the PTA. But school always starts again in early January and then its right back to the grind. When you come back to school, you may be like thousands of other PTAs looking...
Elementary schools all over the country are doing great work for their students and for the planet. Some schools are planting gardens to grow vegetables and other plants to start teaching the young students about sustainability and where our food comes from. Other schools have started recycling clubs and gotten rid of any styrofoam products in the cafeteria. Some schools are even fortunate enough to have a new building that is built "green" with solar panels and low consumption bathroom facilities. No matter what you're school is doing though, it all works to teach the next...
There are thousands and thousands of different fundraising ideas and fundraising products that you can sell to raise money. At Go Green Fundraising, we obviously hope that those products are healthy and eco friendly because that is important to us but we understand that not everyone doing fundraisers shares our interest. What everyone IS interested in is selling as many products and raising as much money as possible. That is why weve put together some tips about how to sell a fundraising product. Selling a fundraising product is very much like selling any other product. Product knowledge, enthusiasm, price, desirability, all...
One of the most important things to consider when choosing your cheerleading fundraising programs is how much demand there will be for whatever you are selling. And one of the smartest ways to generate demand is to offer a fundraising product that offers very real value for your customers. So rather than selling a plastic mug for $25 and leaving the customer feeling a little overcharged, you offer something that gives them more than what they put in. One of the best examples are discount card fundraisers for cheerleaders. The hard part about selling discount cards for cheerleader fundraisers has been...

There really is no way to overstate the fact that there are lots, and lots, and lots of sports fundraisers and fund raising ideas from which to choose. But its not like all of them have a realistic shot at being successful. No, there is a reason why a couple of fundraising ideas seem to get used over and over again while others just seem, well, weird. Some of the top sports fundraisers include selling candy bars, having bake sales, and doing car washes. Another great idea is to sell discount cards. Here, I share with you information about the...
How long should my fundraiser last? is a question that seems to come up quite a bit so I thought I would take some time today to share with you our thoughts on the duration of your sale.

This is part of our series on how to do fundraisers that designed to help you through all of the steps of planning and executing a...
Sports fundraisers are every bit as much a part of youth sports as orange slices at half time and grass stained socks. EVERY person who participates in sports when they are young will have to raise money in some way at some point in the career. So its no surprise to us that so many people call us an ask What are some good sports fundraisers and sports team fundraising ideas? Its an important question to ask. There are lots of ways to raise money for your team and its a very smart move to ask around and...
The best fundraiser for the Girl Scouts, hands down, is selling Girl Scout cookies. The little cookies, at a few dollars a box, have a near cult following all over the country. Sweet-toothed customers catch the scent of the cookies in the air and descend on the scouts positioned at churches and in front of grocery stores like theyre giving away gold bars. Some Girl Scouts are finding, however, that it makes sense to offer some other products as well. They have realized that the cookies may not be for everyone or that some customers may just want to buy something...
When most people think of fundraisers, they either think of a candy bar sale or a frozen cookie dough sale and this is a great way to illustrate the two main types of fundraisers. Candy bar sales are part of a category known as direct sell fundraisers because you sell products directly to customers. Cookie dough sales, on the other hand, are known as pre-sell, brochure, or catalogfundraisers because you take preorders for products using brochures and catalogs. Go Green Fundraising offers both types of green fundraising ideas. Here we will highlight some of our more popular green brochure fundraisers. Our...
Searching the internet for fundraising ideas for a school art class? Youre not alone. School budgets are being cut all over the place and one of the first things to go is usually art class followed by physical education. Even though studies show these are two of the most important things that a student can exposed to, they always seem to be the first classes on the chopping block. One really common idea for art class fundraisers is to have an art show at the school. You can do it during school hours or, if you can get permission from the...

I played soccer for more than 10 years when I was a kid and in that time I did probably 30 or more soccer fundraisers. Looking back on it, it seems like we were always raising money for something.

Ill tell you. What I noticed back then, and working with soccer teams from all over the country now has only reinforced it, is...
When it comes to fundraising, being in the band is great. You dont have to worry about a lot of the things that smaller groups have to worry about. Things like too few participants, minimum order quantities, and unmotivated sellers just arent issues that you have to face. And there are lots of ideas for band fundraisers that you can pick from and raise a lot of money with. The hardest then, it might seem, is finding the right program for your band! To start, I would recommend getting together and discussing what types of ideas for band fundraisers most interest...
You may or may not be aware that fundraising is a huge industry simply because there are just so many groups, just like yours, that need to raise money. When it comes to fundraising ideas, youve got the old stalwarts like cookie dough and wrapping paper that we are all used to. And then there are new fundraising ideas that are introduced every year in a bid to give you something exciting and fun that can help you raise more money. Sometimes these new fundraising ideas work out great. Other times they just dont seem to fit for anyone or just...
Tell me if this scenario sounds familiar. The school year begins and it is time to find the school fundraisers you will use for the year. You have always done the same fundraisers every year selling candy and cookie dough, having car washes, silent auctions and hey, might as well do them again this year because they have worked before right. So you get started fundraising for school and everyone seems to be just going through the motions, no one is really excited about the school fundraisers, no one is having very much fun. The fund raiser ends...

Fundraising ideas for schools are not difficult to come by. In fact, there are probably way, way too many school fundraisers out there for you to pick from and it can be difficult to distinguish the legitimately good ideas from the not so good ones. When you boil it all down, your school fundraiser is about bringing in money that your school needs to accomplish some kind of goal be it adding on to the playground, buying new text books, or planting a school garden. But as our nations student population grows and becomes more educated and socially aware, a number...
The overwhelming majority of people who are placed in charge of a fundraising program have never headed up a fund raiser before. That means that there is a pretty steep learning curve to overcome so that you can feel confident you know what you are doing. Weve put together some helpful tips in our how to do fundraisers series of articles and here we will explain the suggested time line for a fundraiser. In a nutshell, the idea is to plan everything out so that you know when to order your brochures or items; when to start and end the fundraiser;...
Its getting late and the PTA meeting is going longer than it should and its time to discuss which PTA fundraisers you are going to use this year. Some of the parents want to just use the same program that was used last year because they are ready to go home and dont want to spend a lot of time going back and forth. But you volunteered for the PTA because you wanted to make a difference for the school. With that in mind, you may want to consider green ideas for PTA fundraising programs. No one is arguing about the issues...
You dont always have the luxury of planning out a month long program for your PTA fundraisers. The traditional model of a 4 week sale, a week to organize and submit the order, 2 weeks to receive it, and another week to sort and distribute everything is just too much sometimes. Wouldnt it be nice if there were school fundraisers that the PTA could do that were fast, easy, and raised a bunch of money? It just so happens that there are! In fact, here at Go Green Fundraising, we have PTA fundraisers that can be done fast with great profits...

If we are really honest with ourselves, no one really likes doing sports fundraisers. They take a lot of effort and time and someone has to be put in charge of them. You play sports for the love of the game, not to sell tubs of cookie dough. But for most sports teams, not doing fundraisers just isnt really an option. So it only makes sense to look for the best fundraisers for a sports team. The goal, really, is to raise as much money, in the least amount of time, with the least amount of effort possible. To do that,...
The sheer volume of product that you sell for your fundraiser will be a major determining factor in the overall amount of money that you raise. It is just simple math that says the more products you sell, the more money you raise. So that then begs the question what is the easiest to sell fundraising product? The answer is that the easiest to sell fundraising product is the one that your customers want to buy. That should seem obvious enough, but its overlooked way too often. What we have is that the product that people are most likely to buy is...
There is a new movement in the fundraising world and that is the shift away from traditional fund raisers things like frozen cookie dough and candy to something called alternative fundraising. Alternative Fundraisers The idea behind these alternatives is that the old fundraisers dont work so well any more for a number of reasons. The most important of those reasons is oversaturation. There are so many groups and clubs trying to raise money and most of them will pick either cookie dough or candy to sell. The problem with that, for them, is that every other group is selling the...

People are starting to realize the toll that plastic shopping bags are taking on the environment. In the United States alone, more than 100 billion plastic shopping bags are used every year. World wide the total jumps to more than half a trillion bags. Manufacturing these bags and this is just manufacturing, not transporting them or packaging them, uses millions of barrels of oil. The problem is so bad that major U.S. cities such as San Francisco have already banned the use of disposable plastic shopping bags and Boston, New York, and Los Angeles are all considering similar bans. China has...

Most people havent but as you will see that can work to your advantage in a big way when you choose to do one.

Groups looking for fundraisers are often surprised to find out that most fundraising ideas have some kind of seasonality that restricts groups from using them during certain times off the year. One classic example can be seen in chocolate bar fund raisers hat cannot be done during the summer because the candy will melt during shipment. Another common example with a totally different cause is the holiday item gift catalogues. They just dont make any sense and dont do well during the summer months when people arent thinking of buying wrapping paper featuring snow men and christmas trees. One fundraising idea...

Earth Day is held on April 22nd of every year. The idea for Earth Day was promoted in Seattle in 1969 in order to bring the concept of environmentalism to the forefront of everyone's mind. At the time, pollution was running rampant and waste was just a part of the explosive growth of the world economy. Since April 22, 1970, the first observance of Earth Day, more than 140 countries have recognized the need for a day to come together and focus on making our planet a better place to live.

The Perfect Cheerleader Fundraising Idea Cheerleading is expensive. As anyone who has competed as a cheerleader or been a part of a cheerleaders life can tell you, the expenses associated with travel, uniforms, and coaching can be outrageously high. For this reason, cheerleaders and cheerleading squads are some of the most fervent fundraising groups out there. Cheerleaders have always done pretty much the same fundraisers. Granted, they have a wide array of options to choose from and they do all of them with a flair that other groups can only dream of. The typical cheerleading fundraiser could be a t-shirt sale or...
Fundraising is one of the most important non educational activities that a school will do every year. Without a successful school fundraiser, most schools could not continue to offer all of the programs that they currently do. But we only say fundraising in schools is not an educational event because historically it has not been. That, however, does not have to remain true and in fact many schools are finding that earth friendly fundraising ideas are a great way to tie the fund raising efforts in to lesson plans. The school fundraisers that you are probably familiar with are candy, cookie...
One of the most pressing issues facing most groups who need to do a fundraiser is that they do not have very much, if any, money in their account.

The number one concern of pretty much every group who is trying to raise money, no matter the demographic or the reason for the effort, is the fundraising profit they expect to earn. And that is exactly what SHOULD be the most important concern. You are going to spend your time and put forth effort so you obviously want to maximize the fundraisers profit potential.

So, while...
Christ calls all Christians to service. He lived his life serving others especially those who needed his help the most. He also called us to continue that service in our lives through missions work. We are to go out and serve others and preach the word of salvation. Mission trips can be big or small, near or far. They can include digging wells for water in Africa or repainting an elderly persons house right around the corner. The point is that we serve others and show the love of Christ in our own lives and actions. When a group decides to go...

A lot of groups have relied on a rather small, and recently shrinking, category of fundraising products to raise the money they need every year.

There are thousands of groups all over the country that have discovered something new when it comes to raising money. You see, most of these groups used to sell candy bars to raise money but they started running into road blocks and less and less money was being raised each year.

One of the most popular, and most pressing arenas of the "other education" college students receive is an awareness of the environment. Many campuses have symposiums and forums for students, educators, and...
