Need extra funds for your club? Here are some fun ways to raise money!


Tie-dye Day- Host a day for people to tie-dye. You will provide the dye and people can bring their own t-shirts. Charge people a certain amount to participate. Wear your new tie-dyed shirts to school, a birthday party, or a fun event!

Message in a Bottle- Sell messages in your school paper. Parents may want to wish their children a happy birthday. Students may want to put in a funny photo. Teachers might use the space to congratulate a student on a job well done.

Calendar sale- Your club members can submit a drawing or a photograph to put in a calendar. Sell these calendars to friends and family. Bonus points if the drawings or photographs reflect your service projects!

Pie in the face- Have students and teachers volunteer to get a pie in the face! Charge people a certain amount to pie their best friend or favorite teacher.

Casual day at the office/school- If your school requires a uniform, set up an event where students pay a certain amount of money to dress in sweatpants or pajamas! You can do the same event at your parent or guardian's office.

Collect Spare Change- Put penny jars in your classrooms or around town.

Bake Sale- Bake some yummy treats to sell either at school or in your yard.

Car Wash- Get some friends together and spend a Saturday washing your neighbor's car.

Collect Recyclables- Collect cans, bottles, or newspapers to raise money.

Sell ice cream or refreshments- On a hot, summer day, sell ice cream or refreshments at the beach or sporting event.

Sell your artwork- Sell your paintings and drawings at a sidewalk sale or local business.

Kid's Tea Party- Have a tea party for kids with homemade cookies and herbal tea.

Fashion Show- Put on a fashion show of the latest fashion at a local restaurant or clothing store.

Organize a Marathon- For anyone who loves being active, marathons (dance, hopping, walking, roller-blading, or bowling) is a great way to raise funds.

Produce a Play- Get your friends together and perform a play! You can even write your own! Use ticket sales to raise money.

Host a Dance- Ask a band or DJ to volunteer and use ticket sales to raise money.

Gift-wrapping- During the holidays, sell wrapping paper to your neighbors and local stores.

Candy telegrams- Sell and deliver candy with messages to your friends and family.

Organize a benefit game- Choose your favorite sport (or make up your own!) Have your friends and family participate.

Do chores for a neighbor- Rake leaves in the fall, shovel snow in the winter, or walk pets.

Organize a raffle- Raffle off your gently used toys, ask local merchants to donate items, or raffle off holiday gifts such as Easter baskets, Christmas stockings, or Valentines Day cards.
