National Honor Society Fundraising Ideas

The National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society are the United States’ premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. There are also specialized honor societies in just about every field of study. Local Honor Societies hold a fundraiser to send member to national events, to raise money for local charities and for their schools. Fundraising is challenging but also rewarding.

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Clifton Park, NY, teams of students from the Shenendehowa Central School District participated in an Olympics-style fundraiser in the name of several students who have died in recent years. In Medfield, MA, the Spanish Honor Society held a car wash fundraiser to raise money for scholarships for MHS students who wanted to attend the annual Spain Trip but could not afford the cost. Fundraisers by other National Honor Society Chapters include concerts, miniature golf tournaments, dinners, trivia nights, raffles, auctions, pie toss, casual Fridays, and thons.
