French Club Fundraising Ideas

French Clubs often throw a fundraiser to pay for mixers and field trips, going to see French movies or in some cases the they hope to raise enough money for an educational trip to Paris.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Kailua, HI, the French club holds a periodic restaurant night fundraiser at local restaurants to help pay for their club travel to France. The UIS French Club at the U of I, Springfield, held a car bash fundraiser to pay for their awards banquet. In East Stroudsburg, PA, the French club holds an annual Mardi Gras party fundraiser to help pay club expenses. Fundraisers by other French clubs include bake sales, talent shows, culture nights, movie nights, trivia nights, French cafes, scrabble tournaments, garage sales, and donation jars.

Snail Races – Snail races are a fun idea for a fundraiser. Aside from learning about this overlooked and much maligned creature, you’ll teach your child that the natural world is neat, not scary.
