Church, Sunday School, Youth Group Fundraising Ideas
Fundraising Ideas for Church, Sunday School, and Youth Groups
Churches usually choose to raise funds by having suppers and other community type projects. However, within the church are Sunday School classes, youth groups, prayer groups, and women’s clubs. These individual groups usually raise funds on their own for specific projects. For example, a youth group will have a car wash and the women’s Sunday School Class or Prayer Group might put together a cookbook or sell candles or candy. We’ve put together a few fundraising ideas for your church or church group.
We recommend these ideas for Church, Sunday School, and Youth Group fundraising.
5 Favorite Fundraising Ideas
1. Katydids Candy
Katydids candy has been one of the most popular fundraising products for churches, Sunday School classes, and church groups for years! This yummy candy is an easy sell. Members can make sales individually, and you can offer it at church functions and events. Katydids candy is often used as a church wide fundraiser. When people know you have it, they will come to you to buy more! You can keep boxes on hand, or use the order-taker brochure.
Candles are another great option for a church wide fundraiser, or any class or group within the church. The Earth candles we offer are high quality, Made in USA, with a variety of scent choices. These will earn 50% profit! You can choose to order cases of Canning Jar or Hourglass Candles or use the order-taker brochures.
3. Bake Sales
Bake Sales are a popular fundraising choice for churches. Members of the church donate baked goods for the bake sale. Put a unique twist on the basic bake sale by having a theme for the baked goods. We suggest using National Days, such as Chocolate Cake Day or Pie Day and have all of your baked goods represent this theme.
4. Supper Fundraisers
Suppers of one kind or another have long been a church fundraising staple. Put a new twist on your supper fundraiser by using National Food days each month to get ideas. There is usually at least one “food day” for every day of the month, so this can give you many ideas for your supper foods. For example, National Tater Day is a great opportunity to have a Tater Supper with all types of potato dishes. Plan them for the actual National Day or for a day close by, or for any day you want!
Cookbooks are a popular fundraising idea for churches, women’s Sunday School class, or church group. This is not the easiest of fundraisers, as it requires a lot of work getting the recipes together and then put into a book format. However, it’s very rewarding and will make profits for years to come.
You can find publishers that will do the final cookbook for you, or you could publish it on Amazon. This is relatively easy for anyone to do. You can sign up at Kindle Direct Publishing and use their step-by-step directions. You can publish it as a print or ebook, or both. It will be print by demand, so no need to print a lot of copies that you have to pay for up front. Also, being in Amazon, it will make it easier for members to order, plus sales from being in Amazon, which is a huge marketplace.
