Five Fun Ideas for April Fundraising:
1. Spring Smencils
Spring Smencils (scented pencils) are perfect for schools, school clubs, and churches. These are a little different than your ordinary fundraising product and will add a little fun to your fundraising. Spring scents include Jelly Bean, Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy, Tutti Frutti, and Sour Apple. Each has a unique collectible topper.
2. Custom Tumblers
Custom Tumblers are a popular fundraising product. Stainless steel tumblers can be custom engraved with your school, team, or church name and logo. Everyone loves a tumbler and this is a fun idea for April fundraising. This fundraiser is versatile in that you can order up front or it can be used as an order-taker, with your own custom tumbler featured on the brochure.
3. Dollar Candy Bars
Candy Bars are one of the most popular fundraisers for sports teams and clubs. They’re easy to sell at games and school events. We have several popular brands of candy bars for fundraising, including Hershey’s and Van Wyk. The Chocolatiers candy bars, by Van Wyk, earn up to a whopping 55% profit.
4. Car Wash
What better way to earn funds in April than a car wash? People are ready to get the Winter dirt and grime off their car. It’s hard work, but everyone always has lots of fun at a car wash fundraiser.
5. Umbrella Sale
If you live in an area that actually does have rainy weather in April, you might consider having an umbrella and rain-wear sale. Feature umbrellas and rain ponchos. A great time for this sale would be on a rainy day in April! Umbrellas are a unique and fun idea for a fundraiser.
