You could talk to a local band and tie up with them. Sell tickets for the concert among your supporters and anyone who would want to attend. This will help you to collect a lot of funds. Educate the people present at the concert about your cause and ask them to make a donation.

School Fundraising Tool

A school fundraising tool like the one provided by GiveCentral would help you to take advantage of a well-developed crowdfunding tool. It could also help you to create a roadmap for a targeted, measurable fundraising campaign for all your classroom needs.

Auction off Experiences

It is special for kids to have a unique experience with their teachers. Kids love it and their parents would willingly pay for it. You could either auction off such experiences at an event by keeping a silent bid with their parents or sell a raffle ticket for each item. Experiences like getting special game time with the sports teacher, having lunch with one of your teachers, reading the morning announcements, etc.

Ask Parents for a Donation

All the activities that you are planning for your school and all your goals have a direct bearing in the future of the kids. Who better to ask for a donation than the parents themselves? Let it be completely voluntary and only those who have the financial resources and the will to donate come forward. Send a handwritten letter articulating all your goals and why a donation from them could help you in serving their kids better.

Eat and Earn

You could tie up with a local restaurant and invite people to a dining night where a portion of the proceeds would be donated to your school. You just need to spread the word about the dining night and families just show up to eat.

These are a few back to school fundraising ideas which could help you raise a lot of donations. Keeping it fun and creative is the key. Make sure that your donors are interested in your cause by articulating your goals well.
