Key Club Fundraising Ideas

Key Club is the high school division of Kiwanis Club. Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character and develop leadership. The core values of Key Club International are leadership, character building, caring and inclusiveness. Key Club members may hold a fundraiser for their chapters and for their community. Fundraising is challenging but rewarding.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In New Jersey, Woodstown High School Key Club held a Zumbathon fundraiser for the March for Dimes-March for Babies. In Pennsylvania, Souderton Area High School’s Key Club held a fundraiser at Wendy’s, and also a community yard sale at the high school. Fundraisers by other Key Clubs include awake-a-thons, bake sales, donation jars, cookie sales, interclub poker, thons, calendars, raffles, auctions, and car & dog washes.
