Fundraising Ideas Part 1: Sales

  

Travel Bake Sale

Breakdown

A spin on the classic bake sale fundraiser. This is a great way to learn more about the countries you will be visiting on tour! Research some recipes typical of the places you’ll be visiting. Going to Spain? Make flan! Germany? Make pretzels! Authentic international appetizers can be found on almost any recipe website. Have your tour participants volunteer to make the tasty treats, then sell them at school events or during lunch.

Tips 

 

T-Shirt Sale

Breakdown

Create a t-shirt for your tour or travel club (or better yet, have your tour participants create it!). Sell them during lunch and before and after school. A great way to generate interest in your tour, and raise money!

Candygrams

Breakdown

Fundraising doesn't get any sweeter than this! Print and cut out lollipop tags with space for the giver/receiver's names and a message. Sell them during homeroom or lunch, but don't forget to collect them back after the buyer has filled out the tag! You will be delivering them to the recipients at a later date.

Raffle

Breakdown

An oldie, but goodie. Have a 50/50 raffle, where the winner gets half the money raised. Or, sell tickets for a chance to win prizes. The winner gets a prize, and you get all of the money raised! Sell tickets during homeroom, a school performance, sports game or fair.

Art Product Sale

Breakdown

Turn any drawing or painting into a product you can sell! Collaborate with your school’s art teacher to pull this off. Create office supplies, aprons, mugs, even iPhone covers! The possibilities are nearly endless. Check out the resources below for art product suppliers.

Travel Photo Pre-Sale

Breakdown

A lot of people would pay to see the sights you’ll be seeing on your trip! Why not let them? Create a sign-up sheet, with a list of all the places you will visit on tour. Before leaving for your trip, have friends, family and neighbors sign up to order photos of the places they choose. Charge a set price for each photo. While packing, make sure you remember to bring your list! On tour, check off each place as you take a picture of it. Download, print and distribute your photos once you get back to the States. Everyone will feel like they were right there with you the whole time!

Used Book Sale

Breakdown

You know what they say, one person's trash is another person's treasure! Reach out to family, friends and colleagues for book donations. Advertise to the community and hold a big book sale at the school, or market to the school and sell them during lunch or after class. Any leftover, unsold books can be donated to your school or local library — it's a win-win!

Tips

 

Recipe Book

Breakdown

Reach out to parents, students and teachers for tried-and-true international recipes. Then compile them in a cookbook, either by hand or using one of the countless recipe book fundraising sites online. Sell them to family, friends, colleagues and community members!
