5 Ideas for Summer Fund Raising

5 Summer Fund Raising Ideas

Fun & Unique Ideas for Summer Fundraising Campaigns

Are you looking for ideas for a Summer fundraising campaign? This post includes unique ideas that will make fundraising in the summer a little more fun.

Summer fundraisers are usually held by baseball, soccer, swimming, tennis, or other sports teams. A Sunday School class, clubs, and camps might also be doing a little fundraising. For this reason, order-taker type fundraisers are not usually chosen, although there may be some you might want to consider. Usually, summer fundraisers tend to be quick and (hopefully) easy. Choose an item that can be sold at games or that each member can sell immediately to friends and family.

1. Tumblers – Favorite Summer Fundraiser

My favorite idea for summer, is the tumbler! People love tumblers and will love having a new one. You can order custom tumblers with your team name and logo. You know these will sell like hotcakes!

There are many types of tumbler choices. My suggestion would be to offer custom travel mugs and tumblers, especially if you are fundraising for a sports team. If the tumblers are for a club, camp or group, these would also be a great choice.

2. Concession Stand Food

To the usual concession stand foods such as hot dogs and chips, you could add beef jerky, turkey sticks, fruit snacks, and popcorn to make it more interesting. Everyone will appreciate the new choices. During the summer, it’s probably best to stay away from chocolate bars, as they will melt! You could add lollipops and cotton candy.

3. Scratch & Help – Quick & Easy, High Profit

Scratch cards are an old standby for earning funds quick & easy. These cards earn up to 90% profit! Each team or group member should be given one card that will raise $100 if all dots are scratched. You can also order custom scratchcards with your team or group photo on the front cover.

4. Show Team Spirit!

Whether the fundraiser is for a sports team or church organized softball game, you can earn extra funds by offering spirit products with your custom logo. Anything from tee shirts to noisemakers would work. Sell at baseball games, swim meets, and tennis matches.

5. Spinners® – Unique Fundraising Idea

Spinners® are a fun idea for fundraising in the summer. Customers spin the arrow to find out how much they donate. In return the receive a sheet of great coupons.
