Summer Fundraisers for Kids

Summer is a time of being outside, being active and having fun. When your school or special interest group wants to raise money there are a lot of great fundraising ideas they can choose from. Here are a few fundraisers that…..

Summer Concerts – Nothing says summer like a get together with music. Gather local bands to play and put up posters and advertisements around town. Charge admission plus sell food and drinks to people. Your group gets a lot of great advertising plus solid donations towards your cause.

Bike Rally – Sporting activities bring out a lot of people. Fresh air and fun combined with a good cause can almost promote an event all by itself! You can raise money with your friends or alone by taking part in a bike, run or swim event around town. You can give your donors an option of sponsoring you for a flat fee or per mile. These events also attract a lot of attention so call your local TV, radio or newspaper who will want to cover the event.

BBQ Cookoff – People will come out in droves for  BBQ in the summer. An event like this not only attracts hungry people but chefs who want to show off their grilling skills.  You can award prizes in certain categories for best cooked ribs and burgers. Charging a donation for entrance, plus selling drinks to the crowd can help you raise money for this popular event.

Car Washes – Gather your school crew together and hold a car wash on a sunny summer Saturday. Contact local car groups and get them to come out. Depending on the amount of people who actually show up, offer clubs a discount on their wash. You can also sell drink and cookies while people are waiting for their car to be cleaned.

School Fun Fairs – A great idea for school bands, cheerleaders or social clubs. Offer to have an event through the summer that can have events for the family like Bouncy Castles and tables for the adults like book sales, crafts and bakery. Invite service clubs in the area to participate in the event. This will draw a more sellers and more attention from people wanting to check it out.

These are just a few ideas that area available for a summer fundraiser. People in your community are looking for events to take part in so give them a reason to show up and they’ll come!
