Every year we host a student/faculty fundraising basketball game. Students sign up to play, and the coordinators (also students) decide fair teams based on athletic ability. The students play each other in 10-15 minute games in a tournament. The team that wins the tournament plays a team made up of teachers from the high school. The teachers seem to love it. They always plan practices beforehand and get excited about it. Alternatives: Consider other sports or academic challenges but please take it easy on “the old folks”.Source: Abby Haines, East Bridgewater
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.
