Check Out these Kindergarten Fundraising Ideas

Try some fundraising ideas next time you need to generate cash for your kindergarten class.

Shoe Fundraiser

Shoe fundraisers have historically been successful because most people have at least one or two pairs of shoes that they don’t wear anymore, and these can easily be donated to a worthy cause. Kids outgrow their shoes exceptionally quickly, so a typical family might have several pairs to donate for fundraising.

This is also a great idea for being friendly to the environment because it recycles shoes that are still in good condition and can be used by someone else. Many schools throughout the country have had extremely successful fundraising campaigns using shoe donations as the primary vehicle for fundraising.

Electronic device fundraising

A fundraising campaign centered around donations of electronic devices can be highly successful simply because so many of them are already in existence, and upgrades come out so frequently that buyers are always looking for the next great device. That makes their previous device obsolete, even though it can be completely serviceable and useful to someone else. This is a great idea because many schools have transitioned to online learning over the past year. Many students need laptops, tablets, and desktop computers to attend virtual classes.

With a device drive, gently-used electronic devices can be repurposed and used by students everywhere who need them. You can also consult local corporate leaders to see if they would contribute to your device drivers to make it even more successful.

Fundraising letters

This is certainly not a new idea, but it is one tried and true way of raising funds for kindergarten classes. You can use direct mail or email to reach out to potential donors, but to make your letter fundraising campaign more successful, you need to keep a few essential points in mind.

  1. Personalize your letter rather than beginning a letter with “Dear Supporter.”
  2. Relate a meaningful story about the campaign to help captivate the reader. The kids can help create posters or artwork to get them involved.
  3. Please describe how the impact of their donation will make recipients of the campaign funds better off. You can tell potential donors that kindergarten students will have better school materials, better-equipped classrooms, or possibly better meals and snacks prepared for them.

Grocery pick-up fundraiser

Grocery pickup services have increased, as many people have been cautious about making personal visits to the grocery store. Older individuals are also reluctant to visit the grocery store themselves and prefer to use grocery pickup and drop-off services. If you can gather a willing group of volunteers to do grocery pickup and drop-off, you can have a very successful fundraising campaign in your local community.

Existing grocery pickup services charge a substantial fee, so if you would offer the same service at a reduced rate, you could probably generate a significant amount of business, which will end up being fundraising monies. When potential donors realize that they are contributing to a worthy cause and having their groceries delivered, many of them will be more than willing to participate.

Social media contest fundraiser

Since so many people spend a great deal of time on social media anyway, you can tap into that fascination by using it as the basis of your kindergarten fundraising campaign. Of course, you’ll have to establish rules to maintain control of the contest and keep it organized. First, you’ll have to designate a specific hashtag for the game and let everyone know when it’s happening and the rules of participation. For instance, you might want to have a school spirit contest where contestants submit their most outrageous school spirit photo with the hopes of winning a prize.

To make your fundraiser especially compelling, you can also establish a rule that the link to your online donation form has to appear in each participant’s social media post. If you can get your whole community involved, you’ll have the potential to earn tremendous funds for your campaign.

Watch party fundraiser

This idea encourages family or group togetherness because it involves having a watch party where people gather to view a film or video virtually. Facebook has a Watch Party feature that you can use for this purpose, and all you have to do is choose a movie and schedule a time for it to be shown, then ask for donations to your online donation page. Then you need to create a watch party on your Facebook page and grant permission for all users in your community to join in. Ensure you’re not violating copyright information concerning your chosen movie and obtain permission if necessary. This is a great way to raise funds while it brings people in the community together, so it’s a wonderful way to conduct a fundraising campaign.

Collaborate with Classful.com

Something that will make your fundraising efforts go much more smoothly is collaborating with Classful.com. All your donors can visit the site and make their donations, even anonymously, if they choose to. Collaborating with Classful.com will provide you, the fundraiser, with a Dashboard from which you can post updates about your campaign’s progress, generate reports that detail all donations made, and establish communications with all donors for whatever reason. After the campaign, all donations are remitted to the organizer, with no charges imposed by Classful.com, and you can begin planning your next fundraiser immediately.

So the next time you need to raise some funds, consider these fun ideas for your next fundraising campaign.
