Get a large box, such as a refrigerator box but cut in half. Fill it with colorful Easter grass. Get a bunch of plastic colorful Easter Eggs and fill most of them with a little change, slips of paper that say “Sorry try again.” or Happy Easter!” or some pieces of candy. In one or two of them, put a grand prize such as a $20 bill, a gift certificate, or some other prize. Charge one dollar to reach in the big box and take out one egg. The person gets to keep the prize inside. Submitted by Rebekah D.
We have included a number of do-it-yourself fundraising ideas in this section that offer a break from traditional product sales. They were developed by groups just like yours in an attempt have a little fun with their fundraiser. Some of them are tried and true while others show a lot of creativity … and even wackiness in some cases. All of them are obviously not appropriate for every group, but sometimes, with only a little modification, your might find some fund raising ideas that are perfect for your group. If you have an idea for a do-it-yourself fund raiser you are willing to share with others, please send it to us via email. Include anything and everything you would want to know if you were hearing the idea for the first time.
