Finances and budgets for schools are tighter than ever before and many are seeing cuts to their funding. Schools everywhere are finding it harder and harder to get suitable funding especially for extra-curricular activities, dramas and clubs within the school. Many high schools are seeking out extra ways to raise funds to buy the instruments, music, costumes, literature and other items that are needed to run these events, clubs and activities.
Fortunately there are some good high school fundraising ideas available to help raise funds that the school needs.
Raising funds is as easy as shopping.
One of the simplest, but most innovative high school fundraising ideas for pupils, teachers, parents and supporters is through easyfundraising.org.uk. Easy Fundraising allows supporters to shop normally online with retailers such as Amazon and John Lewis through the links on the easyfundraising.org.uk website and for every purchase made a donation is made to the school of your choice. Donations can even be as high as 15% per purchase.
You can raise even more donations by using “EasySearch” where you can raise even more money just by searching normally around on the internet.
High School raffling
There are a huge number of high school fundraising ideas out there and one of the most popular is raffling. In essence the key to a successful raffle is ultimately down to the quality of the prizes. Local businesses may be willing to donate a great prize for the raffle in exchange for some advertising or a word of mention for their business. Funds can then be raised through raffle ticket sales with the school keeping 100% of the proceeds.
Coupon books are also a great way to raise money and help local businesses out as well. These coupon books offer discounts to many local businesses in the area and similarly the school would keep all the funds from the sales. They are appealing to customers because the discounts far outweigh the cost of the coupon book and are also beneficial to local businesses helping create awareness to potential new customers that may otherwise not be aware of the company or service.
Start by Registering your school
To start receiving cash back donations to your cause, firstly register your school and then wait for the donations to be raised through purchased made via online shopping at major high street retailers including Amazon.
