Hi Erica,

See below for some easy fundraising ideas:

  • Ask your principal if you can sell refreshments at school concerts, plays or sporting events, and donate the proceeds.
  • Organize a car wash with your sports team, club or group of friends
  • Host a spaghetti dinner- each family in your class would volunteer to bring pasta, bread, drinks, etc. and then you would collect a small donation to attend. The dinner can take place at a house of worship, community center or school gymnasium.
  • Consider holding a book sale. Speak with family, friends, and peers or create fliers asking community members to donate all those books collecting dust on bookshelves.
  • Organize a benefit talent show. Encourage your peers to take the stage for the cause, invite those in your community to come out for support, and ask for a small admission fee.
  • Hold a penny or recycling drive. For the penny drive, you would place containers in local stores, restaurants, etc. The recycling drive would involve students bringing in old cans and bottles to collect at your school, turning the bottle returns into a donation.

Good luck!
