As with public schools, Charter schools funding has been cut this year as well and it has a lot of staff worried about next year. Some schools have already pushed off repairs, supplies, and upgrades and they have even cut their staffing to a bare minimum. If things continue the way they are, all the cuts may not be enough. This is where fundraising has entered the picture. At Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences fundraising has stepped up. Students have been selling chocolates, school spirit shirts, and Blue and Gold sausage.

After school activities are important for children and for parents. For children, it provides them with time to socialize, read, play, and get their homework done. For parents, it provides them with a daycare service until they leave work. Recently fundraising has begun to keep a Marion Boys and Girls Club open. The goal is to fundraise $79,500 in three months, which should be enough to keep the club in operation until alternative funding is found. The group hopes to achieve state funding by becoming a state-certified childcare facility.

At Meadowdale Middle School, the annual school fundraiser, “Viking Run” raised $11,000 this year. Even in hard economic times and fewer students, communities can pull together and support their school when needed. The money raised will help the school with supplies, dances, field trips, clubs, sports, music, and other extra curricular activities. The fundraising event usually raises anywhere from $9,000 up to $14,000 with community pledges. We hope that their success continues for the years to come!

Being a Senior at Bridges High School, Emily Gentry decided that students should be the ones to start organizing fundraisers to spruce the place up a bit and generate some school pride. The school hasn’t really offered much for student organizations, so Emily was to start a student council. The council’s focus is to help give back to the school by fundraising for a school greenhouse, field trips, and installing art around the school building. To raise the funds needed however they needed some fundraising ideas to get themselves started.

If your school is looking for a fundraiser that is all profit with no cost to the school, then a school fundraising idea for you would be a volunteer bake sale! Volunteers donate their time baking cookies for the school to sell at its bake sale. Once the cookies are baked and delivered to the school, more volunteers would assemble the products in displays and then sell them at the school fundraising bake sale.

Bring the fine cuisine and romantic atmosphere of Italy to your fundraiser. Sometimes if you are looking for a School Fundraising Idea you may just need to start thinking globally. Host an Italian dinner at your school’s cafeteria with wine tasting. Wine tasting usually draws a large crowed and will drive more adults to show up and support your fundraiser. The Italian dinner will also provide people more knowledge about foreign cultures and may be used a learning tool.
