We had a fundraising potato bar dinner open to the entire church. We had baked many potatoes and had all the fixins’ to go with them. We also had salads and desserts donated by the parents of the youth. No set price; donations only. We also had one young man dressed in a Mr. Potato Head costume walking around making sure every one had everything they needed and his parts were Velcro so the little kids had a blast taking him apart and putting him back together! We made good fundraising dollars on this one. Submitted by Kim Bos, Calvin Christian Reformed Church, Holland, MI
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.
