Day 4: Create It! Contest - Please be sure to check out the details about this neat Create It Contest!
For today's topic, Fundraising Ideas and Community Events, please check out my Pinterest Board, Fundraising for School or Homeschool Groups.
Fundraisers can be a great way to build enthusiasm for your trip!
Students can work together creating unique products, such as a unique piece of art or something fun to make, such as homemade soaps.
Students can also work together to provide a service, such as a car wash or a dog walking service.
Earning money to go towards their school trip to attend a Disney Youth program will add to the memory of their school year. It can also help to build a sense of community within not only the students, but also the parents who help with the fundraiser.
Many businesses will donate to a fundraising project if you present the request on a sheet of school or homeschool co-op letterhead.
If your school or homeschool group has nonprofit status, you can also give the businesses who donate towards your project a receipt that they can use for tax purposes showing that they donated to your group.
If you happen to find other pins that are great fundraising ideas, would love it if you would send them to me via Pinterest or else if you would please mention your ideas in the Comments section of this post.
