ok so my junior department just found out we're overdrawn. We made this huge list of things to raise money ranging from a 3 am bake sale on black friday to a polar car wash (nov 2). What has your department done to raise money? We really need some ideas, this has really never been an issue for us before so we are kinda lost. help please
we have raised money with the dinner and the raffle that was a fifty fifty split. We also did a turkey raffle that was also a d,tinner with turkeys raffled every half hour. We were able to raise about 5,ooo dollars and every body had fun. Check out the local stores for gift certificates and two for one certificates. It helps the owner of the store with free publicity and gives you prizes at no cost. Our local movie theater and the pizza joints were great. Some of the other towns in teh area raffled a harley and made some big bucks but I don't know how they set it up. I know they had a number of tickets they commit to and then they get the rest. Best of luck
How about Rock band concert. High School rock band are newbies, but they are good at it. If you can make a negotiation with them that their talent fee to a minimum or none. Convince them that this is for a good cause.
So we are down to overhead expense will be sound system and venue rental.
cut it again, how about highschool premises as a venue with just a permission letter from the school head.
Our Juniors sell popcorn at our Bingo, return pop bottles from the hall, and sell house number signs with reflective numbers. They have several "50/50" raffles during the year. Hope this helps.
