The churches where I grew up had annual fundraising Christmas Craft/Bake Sales. People rented the tables from the Church (all proceeds from table rentals went to the church’s youth groups). On the sale Saturday (1 day only) the sellers sold their wares (crafts, Christmas decorations, baked goods, etc) and they kept the money from their sales. This has to be well organized in that table sales are done in advance (usually Sept-October timeframe) so the sellers can make sure they have enough product.Submitted by Lou Ann S.
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.
