A 750 kid school can easily raise between 25 and 50k within a 2 to 3 week period with a single fundraiser requiring minimal effort / volunteers and NO (Zero) expense to the school.

CD or DVD yearbooks are a great way to raise money. They're relatively cheap, easy to set up, and can be sold for a huge profit. You could easily make $20 off the sale of each yearbook. I use Yearbook Alive and think that it's great.

In any event, good luck! I know it can be tough to raise money these days.

I would say it depends on what you need to make out of a fundraiser--- some don't bring back as much as others-- Walk-a-thons/fun runs can bring in a lot or a little-- (we are a school of 600) we made 3,000 from our walk-a-thon-- this is what we projected, but no where near some of these other schools numbers-- We've done salsa before as well-- made 300.00-- Mom-2-Mom sales have been fantastic, especially with this economy-- we made 5,000 in 2 sales-- not much out of pocket cost and only need a handful of volunteers to run the event, it's all in the planning-- this also doesn't tax parents from the school and they reap benefits since they are selling their items for money as well-- go to mom2momlist.com if you want to see what it's about-- (maybe you've never seen a mom2mom sale before)- Michigan is big with these-- not all states are though.

Entertainment books have been great as well-- again it's coupons-- a great thing to offer in a tough economy-- we made over 5,000 last year during our sale-- spiritwear does ok, but not a supposed to be a big money maker though-- maybe 300.00 over the course of the year-- more of a service to the families-- we want them to promote school spirit with t-shirts, sweatshirts- without breaking their bank account. Good luck on what you chose-- there is a lot to pick from...

Good luck with the salsa!
Cookie dough is flash frozen and in the three years and $40,000 we have lost one box to thaw--and it was my order!

Carnival is a great way to build community in your school and for families to met but it's a lot of work.

Never heard of salsa...may need to look into that one!

Now, have you looked at socks?
