Think Outside the Box with These Creative Fundraising Ideas
Fundraising can be a great way to get the money your school needs to continue supporting students on their journey to adulthood. There’s no shortage of fundraising ideas out there either! From bake sales to car washes, there are many options for every department to get the cash they need.
The problem with most fundraising efforts is that after the effort is made, the money stops coming in. The car wash only makes money while the kids spend the Saturday washing cars, and the bake sale is over at the end of the day.
If you’re looking for a more long-term school fundraising option, consider flag products. There’s a lot more to flags than just traditional rectangular flags, and they can provide your school with a way to make a little extra money all year round!
Decorate for the big game
The game is the perfect place to sell items and make a little more money for the school’s sports programs. From basketball games to football, tennis, and track, setting up a stand is a great way to make a few extra bucks. That is, as long as you create a decorative, appealing atmosphere that gets students and parents excited about spending their money!
Polyester mesh banners are a must for parking and other areas that need to be blocked off. They can cover metal barriers while advertising items that can be purchased by the booster club, or they can simply feature the school’s logo or mascot.
Whether you have a small booth or a designated building to sell items during the game, custom flags are a great way to decorate. Fly the school’s flag proudly so people know exactly where to go to find some nachos and something to drink while they watch their favorite team crush the competition.
Don’t think these ideas are only effective at sporting events. There are many events that can be enhanced with flag products so you can sell items and make money for the school. Think marching band competitions, parades, plays, and more!
Appeal to everyone’s sense of fun
Once you’ve got the stand all decorated with flags and polyester mesh banners, it’s time to think carefully about the best school fundraisers for your school. There are a lot of options out there. Not all of them are perfect for every school, but there are a few that are great for everyone.
Outdoor events are the perfect place to sell custom scarves and bandanas. A scarf can keep students and parents warm, while a bandana can keep their hair from blowing in the wind. Not to mention, these options can be very stylish when they are designed properly! Use your school’s colors, include the name of your school, or print the school’s monogram. With the right design, you can ensure that students and parents attending the game will wear them long after the game is over. Not to mention, they make great gifts around the holidays, so parents will want to stock up, providing you with even more fundraising money!
Whether the game or event is indoors or out, hand flags are a great thing to sell because their popularity spreads like wildfire. Just one or two people waving custom hand flags in the stands will prompt others to ask where they got the flags, and before you know it, the stands will be full of people waving flags in support of their school!
If you really want to have a little fun with your fundraising efforts, add cape flags to your inventory. Students will love wearing them in the stands, those competing will love wearing them while they wait to take the field, and parents can wear them to keep warm. They can even be used as a sort of uniform. For example, cheerleaders can wear them while they’re sitting on the sidelines!
The best school fundraising ideas are ones that can help you raise money for your school all year long. With the flag ideas on this list, you’ll attract more people to your booth to buy some of the coolest fundraising items in town!
