Fundraiser Friday

There are some great things happening out there at different schools. Today I'm highlighting a fundraiser idea from Princess Elizabeth Public School. This is such a great idea especially around the holidays but can really be used any time of the year.Thanks to Nancy Moseley for sharing this great idea! I know this year's fundraiser will be very successful. All of the funds raised go back toward the Breakfast Club and can be used to purchase equipment needs.

Basket Draw Fundraiser

Each classroom is given a theme for which students, parents and staff donate small items related to this theme. As items are brought in, they are put into the designated boxes in each classroom. Once everything is collected, the gift baskets are assembled and put on display for all staff and students to see. Tickets go on sale for $0.50 each or 3 for $1.00. The ticket buyer decides which basket they would like to place their draw tickets.

Theme Ideas:
  • Baker's Delight
  • Babies Own
  • Pamper Me
  • Chocolate Lover's
  • Fun Night
  • Craft Basket
  • Sports Lover
In addition to baskets, there are single draw prizes for such things as gift certificates or tickets to an event happening in the area.

It is very important to have staff support this fundraiser in order to communicate to students and parents and keep them reminded. Two weeks is a good amount of time to have students bring in items and another two weeks is sufficient for the ticket selling. If you would like more information on this fundraiser idea or letter templates for the school, please contact me or leave a comment.
