Help me choose a fundraiser

14 years 9 months ago #149777 by Walkathon Guide
My favorite event is always the school walkathon. It's an all day event where the children walk and get support from family members based on how many miles they go. What I like is that it's healthy and very social. The casual atmosphere makes it easy to get to know people as everyone walks.

Yankee Candles.

Never let us down...6k from a 750 kid school. Great before the holidays--especially if you've never done one!!!

With the economy as it is today, we thought a staple such as a coffee fundraiser would be an excellent fundraising program. There is a ready to go coffee fundraiser at Home - Fundraising Together with order forms and a custom label program for schools who want their own blend and label.

The best fundraiser that I have seen in the past few years for our school is Joe Corbi's pizza kits. They offer a wide range of products from pizza kits, cookie dough, pies, etc all rolled into one brochure.

They deliver it to the school and it needs to be frozen or refrigerated, but otherwise, it's a great fundraiser and we make a good profit off of it.

I'm torn! I see that people are doing are following but which one seems to work for you?

*Carnival - Sounds like it could be good but how many volunteers do I need and what if it rains.

*Cookie Dough - No! to much hassel to keep refigerated

*Digital Year Book - This could be something new to try.

*Salsa Fundraising - This also is something no one else is doing as long as it does not have to be refrigerated.

*Donations - With the economy might be hard to get.
