Putting the Fun in Fundraising

July 18, 2013

Here are a few ideas to show gratitude to your hard-working volunteers while also boosting the fun factor in fundraising.

• Turn your spring car wash into an outdoor extravaganza with live entertainment featuring the school’s jazz ensemble and a cappella groups.  Keep drivers entertained while their cars get a bath.

• Honor Memorial Day this year with an All-American Apple Pie Bake-Off.  Proud cooks can enter their favorite pie along with the recipe for auction.  Provide a healthy supply of American flags to sell to families that want to decorate their mailbox and front porch.

• Host a semi-formal live auction for parents featuring music and appetizers.  Get local businesses to provide items or services such as dinner, theater tickets, spa package or a hotel stay for two.

• Ask a dance instructor to teach families how to waltz, two-step, salsa, line dance, or do the latest hip-hop moves.  Follow up the lessons with a dance-off or your very own “Dancing with the Stars” contest.
