Field trips provide school students an opportunity to learn outside their everyday learning environment. Some field trips provide the students with observations while others provide the students with hands on research allowing the student to observe the subject in its natural state and possibly collect samples.
Fields trips may have many cost involved including staffing, travel expenses, and admission fees. To help cover the cost of these fees, schools, teachers, or group leaders may use field trip fundraising ideas. These ideas are fundraising programs and products designed for schools and groups to raise money for field trips.
Many schools are well familiar with candy bar fundraisers which will make a group anywhere from 40 – 50% profit! However, some schools and groups want to make more than 50 cents of the dollar. That is where brochure fundraising ideas come in.
There are two types of brochure fundraising ideas, high profit programs and full service programs. High profit programs offers the groups more profit by eliminating some of the services provided by the fundraising company such as prepacking, student reports, and parent letters. Full service programs provide all the services and the group still walks away with a wonderful profit.
