I asked this a couple of days ago in Back-To-School...trying for a wider audience...!
I am on the PTO this year at my son's school, and we are brainstorming for new PTO fundraiser ideas. This is my second year at the school, so I know last year we had the following, some were more successful than others:
We are in a low-income district, so we really can't do anything too expensive and expect great results. We also have very few parent volunteers, so that has to be taken into consideration, too.
Any ideas are welcome!
Thank you :)

My son's school only has one fundraiser a year. They host a carnival where the classrooms are turned into various activities- cake walk, putt putt, face painting, animal balloons, etc. They also have bounce houses, slides, and they sell lunch ( a slice of pizza, bottled water, and a little debbie for $3). There is also bingo with prizes. The admission is $15 for a bracelet which gets you everything plus 3 bingo cards (each bingo card is an extra $2). Or you could buy tickets and pay for each thing by the ticket cost. Additional family members or students are at a reduced price. For example, 2 bracelts for $25 or 3 for $35. The maximum charge for a family is the $35 (meaning if they had 4 kids then they would get four bracelets for $35 and so on). I think this is much better than trying to sell things and people are more willing to spend their money on these types of events.
