School-Fundraisers.com works with elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, preschools, private schools, home schools, school clubs, school bands, day cares and others.
Depending on which group you belong to, we will recommend the best fundraising package for you. For example, if you run an elementary school-wide fundraiser, for playgrounds or general equipment, you may want to look at prize programs more carefully instead of asking for higher profit. In our experience, a good prize program can highly increase participation rate and thus help your group achieive more sales to compensate for the lost profit percentage (5% in average).
If you belong to a school band or 5th or 6th grade group, musical instruments or class field trips have been a strong incentive so you may want to ask for a higher profit with no prize program.
Another special school group would be sport clubs, such as basketball, baseball, football and so on. They do fundraising for equipment, travel or uniforms. The best fundraising program for sports groups would be candy bars because they sell extremely well on field when morale is up.
We will customize our fundraising package to maximize the fundraising results based upon the attributes of your groups. Don't wait and let us help you get started.
Tips For High School Fundraisers
Finding the right fundraiser for high school groups is not an easy thing to do. Motivating a high school student to participant in a fundraiser is an even harder thing to do. High school fundraisers are a different animal compared to the fundraisers run by the middle and elementary schools. The main difference is that the fundraisers are not run by a parent organization such as a PTA or PTO. The students run these fundraisers, so relying on the parents to be the driving force of these fundraisers is unrealistic. See more

School Vacation Time
Does fundraising stop when schools are on break? When school is on a break, it's a much needed vacation for many of us. Also, I'm sure many parents are happy to take a break from school fundraisers as well. But, does that mean that all fundraising activity ceases while school is out? The answer in many cases is no. In fact, many schools plan fundraisers that are designed to take place while school is on break. See more
Spring is the season for planting, gardening, and landscaping. With more hours of daylight, new growth, and a time of renewal…people are in fresh spirits and willing to lend a helping hand…hence the perfect time for a spring fundraiser such as a school plant-a-thon (a fun variation of a school walk-a-thon event). Not only is a plant-a-thon a great way to raise money for your cause, it's also a great way to teach students about giving back to their community and the environment. See more

Fundraising for PTA or PTO Groups
We've all been in situations where we were the newbies in the room. A new school, a new job or a new club.
