Any successful fundraising ideas for monies for school trips?

One of my kids' class is having to face cancelling school trips if there are no funds raised. How do parents help? Any help is appreciated! They do bake sales and popcorn sales.

  • we raised money by buying gift cards from our local grocery store. we get 5% back off of every gift card purchased. we also had craft shows, sold candy bars, sold pizzas and garbage bags. kids would also do chores for people and earn money. have a spaghetti dinner or pancake breakfast.

  • What about a coin collection where the students bring in their change and the room that brings in the most will get a special snack or something like that?
