I may not be qualified to teach or manage a school, but if I did run one, here are some interesting Fundraising ideas I would like to try.
Green Runway Competition
This particular idea just puts a little green twist in the usual runway contest. Instead of schools battling it out to see which can come up with the best-looking dress or clothing designs, participating schools are given a specific green theme to consider. For example, instead of using regular fabrics, contestants can be limited to just newspapers for materials. This means models will only be showcasing designs by recycling old newspapers.
It is definitely not one of your usual school fundraisers but it sure is relevant and challenging. It addresses environmental issues while continuing to focus on artistic skills.
Family Adventure Race
Ever since reality shows like Survivor and The Amazing Race hit international television, people have always wondered how it would feel like to join one. This should be enough reason for a family adventure race to become a successful fundraiser. It is not only interesting to people but it also allows the whole family to share in the experience.
Electronic Junk Drive
Instead of newspaper, the electronic junk drive involves the collection of electronic junks. This includes old, working or non-working electronic devices such as cellular phones, remote controls, remote-controlled toys, monitors, CPUs, electric fans, chargers, or even used accessories such as electric wires. These materials still hold value because they contain metals and other materials that can still be sold and used. At the same time, it promotes environmental awareness by recycling and reusing old stuff. It’s not as fun as the previous School fundraising ideas I mentioned but it is unique and very relevant.
