    Coming up with the perfect school fundraiser can seem like a headache but there are plenty of ideas around that, if you run throughout the year, can raise thousands of dollars for your school.

    You may want to stage something that hasn’t been done before, but the tried and tested ways of raising funds are often the best. Whether it’s a raffle, casual day or pie drive, rest assured parents won’t have a problem with putting their hand in their pockets and donating some of their hard-earned.

    Listed below are just a few ways that will help you raise funds. Bear in mind that there a whole host of other fundraisers out there you really are only limited by your imagination!

    Basket Raffle

    Buy a basket for each class in the school and choose a theme such as sport, chocolate or something seasonal like summer or winter items. Contact local businesses to see if they can donate items relating to the theme, and sell raffle tickets for each basket. If every class takes part, you school will be able to make quite a profit especially if you do more than one a year.

    Garage Sale

    If, like everyone else out there, you need to do a thorough clean out of your house, why not pool everything you’d like to discard and have a garage sale? In this case, one person’s junk can definitely become your school’s treasure. The school will get 100 percent of the profit, and you get a cleaner house! Organise the garage sale for a weekend, where you can also combine it with another fundraising element such as a cake sale.

    Chocolate Sale

    There are quite a few companies such as Cadbury and Mars that will sell organisations cheap chocolate that you can on-sell to raise money. Although it’s not the healthiest option, the popularity of the sweet tooth will help you raise money quickly and easily.

    Entertainment Books

    Ever popular, Entertainment Books are a fantastic way to raise funds. They provide a whole host of coupons and discounts (usually between 25-50%) on local restaurants, stores, and entertainment, and represent excellent value that can be taken advantage of throughout the year. You can expect to raise about $16 from each book sold.

    Trivia night

    Ask a local restaurant, hall or bar to donate a room and hold a trivia night. Youll need to develop a list of questions (or buy them from the internet) and incorporate another fundraising element, like having a raffle or a jelly bean guessing competition. You can charge entry into the evening and add a theme to make it more fun.

    Casual day

    Students love going to school and not wearing a uniform, so why not turn this day into an important one on your fundraising calendar? Charge each student $2 for the privilege of not wearing a uniform once a term.
