  • Juice Plus. The president of the PTA signed up as a Juice Plus Rep. All the money that she made from parents orders went to the school for feild trips, supplies all sorts of extras. It was a huge success.

  • It's not a "fund" raiser but every year the radio station I work for does a holiday food drive. Each year over 4 days we collect enough to fill a city bus with boxes of food then we take it to the local food bank.

  • Krispy Kreme donuts. They sold really well in one city I lived in. It was one day's effort, Krispy Kreme was plesant to work with, and you make a good profit.

    Yard sales.

  • For several years now since my kids have been in the high school band, they have had a silent auction at the school. Lots of people bring in new donations and lots of money is raised. The band room has new lockers now for the kids to put their instruments in (instead of putting them on tables). As a matter of fact, son and I are going to three places today after school to ask for donations!

  • Silent Auctions are great! So are candy bars (you can get a case at Sam's for about $15 and sell them for $1 a piece). One of the best ones though, when I was in high school, one of the clubs I was in bought big jars of Laffy Taffy (each jar had like 1000 pieces of candy). We sold the candies for a quarter each. Most of us averaged selling a whole jar in a day!! So it worked great!!!!

    I do fundraisers...I've always done very well with any of the ones I've done. I have an on-going fundraiser for a friend of mine for Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. It keeps doing so well. She just keeps it up every month.
