School fundraising has come a long way from cake sales, but an interesting twist on this may be to ask different classes to bake a different type of cake. This can help build up a variety of different types of cake as well as getting the whole school involved and are perfect to be sold during break and lunch times. This can be extended to creating a cook book or any other kind of similar helpful book of ideas that can be printed and sold and distributed throughout the school.

A dramatised performance or music event can also help raise funds by planning an after school event in the evening like a concert, play or dance. You can raise funds by charging for admission; whilst at the same time enhancing the pupil’s creativity, encouraging support and exposing their talent.
