Best Legs Contest Fundraiser

Both guys and gals can have pictures of their legs posted around the campus. People vote on who has the “best legs” by making a donation. All entries will be placed in a central box from where the winner’s name will be drawn. The winner could receive a pre-designated prize or part of the money pot accumulated from the donations. Source:  John T, Madison Area Technical College

Alternatives: Paint a large cartoon animal – turkey, monkey, bear, flamingo, etc on a sheet of plywood or canvas. Hang the picture so that participating teachers and students can stand behind it; all that can be seen is their legs. You could have a different picture for males and females. Participants can wear their favorite socks or funny shoes and have their picture taken. Participants pay a fee to vote for the “best (turkey, monkey, etc) legs.”  Source:  Marilu, Westside High School

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.
