CASH FOR TRASH

Breakdown

This is a great way to help others while raising money for your trip! Collect bottles and cans and redeem them at a local redemption center. And don’t stop there! Other organizations will pay for empty ink cartridges, old cell phones, used clothing, shoes, toys and more.

SCHOOL SITTER

Breakdown

Set a classroom aside for a day care area during Parent-Teacher Conferences, Meet the Teacher Nights, PTA meetings or Open Houses. Parents will be eager to donate money in exchange for childcare, and your volunteers are bound to have lots of fun!

HANDPRINT MURAL

Breakdown

A great way to celebrate diversity in your community, and raise some money besides! Prep a wall at school, buy several different colors of paint, and charge for each handprint. In the end, you’ll have a masterpiece for everyone to enjoy for years to come!

RENT-A-STUDENT

Breakdown

All teachers have some sort of busy work they just can’t find the time to get done. Problem solved! Have your travel group create a sign-up sheet with their names and when their free periods are. Teachers can then “rent” a volunteer for a class period on a designated day. Grade papers, re-arrange desks, or clean the classroom! They will be happy to donate to a good cause, and get something invaluable in return.

CAN YOU SPARE A DOLLAR?

Breakdown

Here’s a quick fundraiser that requires almost no planning on your part! Simply print out copies of the Can You Spare a Dollar? sheet, found in the Resources section below. Hand them out to your tour participants. Their goal is to find donors to sign each square on the sheet and donate at least one dollar. Set a deadline to have the sheets filled out by, and voilà! You’ll have an extra $25 per tour participant.

PENNY WARS

Breakdown

Use your students’ competitive edge to your advantage in this week-long fundraiser! Get ahold of a container for each grade in your school.  Label each with a grade level, and leave them in a supervised area, like the cafeteria. Throughout the week, students should put pennies in their grade’s container. Each penny is worth one point. However, they can also put other coins or bills in other grades’ containers. Nickels deduct five points from the grade’s final total, dimes ten points, quarters twenty-five points, one dollar bills one hundred points, and so on. At the end of the week, have your volunteers empty the containers and calculate each grade’s final total. The winner gets a special party and, more importantly, bragging rights until the next Penny War!
