The Student Council of Ada (Oklahoma) High School organizes a campaign to kidnap a teacher each spring as a fundraiser. Members collect money from every teacher’s classes every period for a week, keeping track of the total collected for each class. At the end of the week, Student Council officers bring a substitute teacher into the class of the teacher whose students raised the most money. They take the teacher away in a wheelchair for an hour off and the class gets a party. Source: National Honor Society
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.
