Easy Winter Fundraising Ideas for Schools
Winter is a notoriously slow time for fundraising. Everyone has spent a lot of money during Christmas and need a break. However, you can take advantage of this slow time to do an extra fundraising campaign for your school, sports team, or school club. A great idea is to choose a product that students need to buy anyway, like snacks, school supplies, or spirit products. You can “sneak” in a sale and no one will realize you’re “fundraising” again! Other options could include: a raffle (with the prize being an electronic device that students would love) or offer a snow shoveling service. Now would also be a great time for a winter play or dance. A Sweetheart Dance in February, for example. Don’t let the winter season slip by without earning some extra funds!
7 Winter Fundraising Ideas:
1. Snack Foods
Offer an assortment of snack foods and candy from a table at school or at sports game concession stand. (Be sure and include a few healthy snacks!)
2. School Supplies
Sell at your school store or set up a table in your school hallway. Include pencils, pens, paper, notebooks and other school supplies. Smencils (scented pencils) with collectible toppers are a great novelty item for students.
3. Spirit Products
These can be sold any time of the year at school events, sports games, and during school. Ideas include tumblers, tee shirts, eye black, wristbands, hats, and noisemakers.
5. Snow Shoveling Service
This is great idea for a sports team or club to get together and offer to shovel driveways or run errands for older shut-ins.
6. Winter Play or Musical
When the winter blues and boredom set in, put on a fun play or musical. Everyone will be ready to get out of the house and come to see it. Plus, you’ll have lots of fun putting it together.
7. Winter Dance
February is the perfect chance to hold a Sweetheart Dance at your school.
