PTA fundraising ideas

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.

PTA fundraising ideas

Join websites that support your Cause

A fantastic way to raise funds for the school is by joining sites that support a cause. is a completely free service that allows charities, schools, organisations or causes to register and once registered can start to earn donations and raising funds through purchases that would normally be made online. Teachers, pupils or parents can simply sign into their Easy Fundraising account and then make purchases at their favourite online retailers, which in turn will raise funds for their specific cause.

At, you can even earn extra donations by using the search facility to carry out online searches and earn donations.

There are many other ways that the PTA can raise funds. One such means is by holding a number of auctions. These can help generate funds for the PTA, be themed and just about include anything. There are also social activities such as sports events, music or dance competitions and quizzes that can get the whole school involved. Children can also create and design their own cards and the school could even hold a bazaar event and invite the local community and businesses to take part in the fundraising activity.

Another idea for fundraising is recycling. Many pupils, teachers, parents and even local businesses will have a number of disused or redundant mobile phones that recycled can generate a significant contribution to the fundraising total. The PTA can help organise this and invite as many people as possible to participate and donate their old phones to the school.
