Hi everyone! Just a quick note to let you know that there’s a new Kindle version of my book, Fundraising Success, up on Amazon. Here’s the link: Fundraising Success!
Green Products Fundraiser – A Kansas City company has developed a green fundraiser using home cleaning products that are eco-friendly and inexpensive.
The green products fundraiser is aimed at schools looking for fundraising products that offer a good value for families while protecting the environment.
The products have vegetable and plant-derived cleaning agents and contain no volatile organic compounds, Noon says. There are no hazardous solvents or toxic chemicals, and the biodegradable products are made from sustainable resources.
Owner Bill Noon of Generations Go Green says his fundraiser idea combines selling green cleaning products with raising money for schools and organizations.
“We were trying to figure out how to introduce these products,” he says. “We’ve all heard how desperate schools are for money. We decided to develop a fundraising program. Why not sell them something they need?”
Students can sell four different packages ranging in price from $15 to $30. Each comes with a reusable grocery bag. The school keeps a percentage of the sales, and the students learn about the environment, Noon says.
And that’s the latest idea for a green products fundraiser.
Halloween Fundraiser – For schools having a Halloween Fundraiser is a great way to raise money for the PTA or other school group.
A Halloween Fundraiser is perfect timing because school has recently started and everyone is still gung-ho and full of energy.
One of the most lucrative Halloween fundraiser ideas is to have your own pumpkin patch.
You can hold your pumpkin fundraiser in conjunction with a school fall festival or as a sole fundraising event.
Publicity will be crutial to your success, so be sure not to skimp on that. Signs, letters home, a eyecatching post on the school website, even a press release will get more traffic.
Decorate your pumpkin patch to make it appealing to passers-by. Twinkle lights and the decorative use of bright fall colors go a long way toward people stopping at your pumpkin patch rather than the one around the corner.
Order your pumpkins locally if you can and don’t over buy, having too many left overs from your halloween fundraiser will cut into profits.
And those are some quick suggestions for having a Halloween Fundraiser.
