People To People Fundraising Ideas for Great Success

In order to support the People To People Student Ambassador Program at your school, you may have decided that holding a fundraiser is the best way to go.

There are many obvious benefits to holding a fundraiser, but using some good People To People Fundraising Ideas can help several students at your school find the funding required to be a part of this great program.

If you are a faculty member at the school who wants to get involved in raising money for this cause, then you will want to consider a few things before getting started, so that everything runs without a hitch and you pull off the best fundraising event that your school has seen in years.

First of all, you might like to gather other members of the school faculty to help in organizing your event. Turning your People To People fundraisers into a real plan of action will be a whole lot easier if you have a team of people to help bounce ideas around. They may even be able to offer up some ideas you hadn’t thought of, so now is the time to listen up.

Once you feel that you have a good strategy for making your event a hit, it is time to promote your event. Making sure that everybody around the school, from students, to other faculty members, to parents too, knows when and where your event will be held is a good way to ensure that your goals are reached when the event day actually rolls out. You may even find your goals exceeded if a large number of people show up.

You also might like to consider selling some of our fundraising products at your event. We remove a lot of the hassle of organizing a successful fundraiser, so that you don’t have to make the products yourself.

Junior / Senior Prom Fundraising Ideas

prom dressEvery spring high schools all across the country throw a grand party and dance known as the PROM.  It’s a rite of passage for any teenager. Get dressed up, dance and have a great time!

One of the first things your prom committee will do is to create a prom budget.  This will help you know how much everything will cost and how much money will need to come in to pay for the event.

Many schools also charge a entry ticket for students who go to prom, but that is usually not enough to cover the costs of putting on the event.  So of course that leaves us with fundraisers for prom. Most of the time the students have fundraisers for prom starting a year or more in advance.

There are a lot of ways that high schools raise the money needed.  Usually the prom committee is in charge of planning the event and the fundraisers.  Sometimes parents help with raising money too.

List of Prom Fundraising Ideas

1. Have a prom dress sale to get rid of your old dresses and make some big bucks at the same time!  You can accept any kind of formal wear, weddings too, to attract even more buyers.

2. Speaking of fashion, how about a fashion show fundraiser?

3. Parents could have a night of fun all to themselves with a wine tasting fundraiser.

4. For a more elaborate adult-only fundraiser, a second chance prom could be a lot of fun.

5. Have a talent show at the school carnival (even if your high school doesn’t have a carnival, see if you can do this at a local elementary school!)

6. You can have a sale to raise funds for prom such as a candle fundraiser or cookie dough sale.

7. One school held a volleyball tournamet to raise fund for prom.

8. Have a dress up day at school or a sporting event in dress up – one high school rugby team played a game in prom dresses to raise funds!

9. Another great competition would be a video game tournament like Wii sports
or DDR.

10. Work with a local restaurant which will donate part of the proceeds to your group. Chik-fil-A, Pizza Hut, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Marble Slab, Ci Ci’s Pizza and Sonic are just a few of the ones that offer this.
