Fundraising ideas for schools
Today there are a whole heap of fundraising ideas for schools that can help the school reach their fundraising goals and targets quickly.
One of the newest yet simplest ways for parents, teachers, families and the local community to raise money for their school is through easy fundraising. Easy fundraising is an entirely free service that allows people to shop directly at their favourite store via the links on the easyfundraising.org.uk website and earn a cash back donation to their school cause once a purchase is made. Donated earnings can be anywhere up to 15%, depending on the retailer and the product that was purchased. There are thousands of stores that are already participating with leading high street brands such as Amazon, WH Smith, M&S etc making it one of the most effortless fundraising ideas for schools.
Of course there are lots of more traditional fundraising ideas, which are great to be involved in at the school. 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 item or even the sweets themselves.
A book sale is not only a great way to raise money, but it also has the advantage of educating the children and boosting their reading age. Asking teachers, parents and again 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 by the school.
If the school has a dress code or if uniforms are compulsory, a dress down day would be a particularly popular choice amongst pupils to raise money. Having a fixed donation throughout the school can overnight drastically increase funds for the school.
To begin receiving cash back donations for your school, sign up through easyfundraising.org.uk and register your school or cause of choice if it is not already listed. Start shopping online direct with the retailers through the links on the website and wait for the donations to build up. Better yet, some retailers make free donations just for switching to their services, participating in free trails or even simply registering on their website. Start earning donations now by registering for one of the easiest fundraising ideas for schools.
