Need some inspiration for school fundraising ideas?

Of course there are lots of more traditional school fundraising ideas, which are great to be involved in including the following.

Guess the amount

Filling a glass jar full of sweets and getting people to guess the amount there are is a quirky and intriguing idea, with the winner receiving either a percentage of the money raised through the guesses, a donated prize or even the sweets themselves.

Book sale

A book sale is not only a great way to raise money, but it also has the advantage of encouraging reading amongst the children at the school. Asking teachers, parents and local community members or businesses to donate books for sale at the school will help increase donations too. Any books that aren’t sold could then be used in the school library or classrooms.

Non uniform day

If your school usually has a dress code or if uniforms are compulsory, a dress down day is a particularly popular choice amongst pupils. Charging a fixed donation to everyone who takes part throughout the school can raise lots of money for mimimum effort!
