One of our best school dance fundraising ideas:  Everybody wants to look their best for the dance!

This is an easy way to earn cash to help you pay for your next school dancing event.

Simply contact a list of vendors that supply the items and services students will be shopping for to look their best.

Here are just a few.

  • Hair salon or barber shop
  • Manicures and pedicures
  • Prom dresses
  • Tuxedo rentals
  • Photographers
  • Flowers and corsages
  • Jewelry stores
  • Limo rentals

How many more can you come up with on your own?

So what will you do with your list of school dance vendors?

Now that we have our list of vendors your students will be visiting, why not contact these vendors first BEFORE your students do? Tell them you are having a school dance. Ask them if they would pay you a percentage of all sales that you send their way.

Next create a coupon or a special offer just for your students. Print these all out on one sheet of paper and send this flier out to all of the students. Tell them to bring it with them when they get their hair cut or rent their tuxedo to get the best deal.

Finally, encourage them to use these sponsors to help pay for the school dance. This can easily raise several hundred dollars or more for your school.

One of our top school dance fundraising ideas: Family night out.

There are many new restaurants in your community looking for new customers.

Did you know that 95% of all new restaurants go out of business in the first year or so? The reason is they do not have a steady flow of loyal customers yet. Here is a way to help support local businesses in your neighborhood.

  1. Ask the restaurant owner what their slowest day of the week is.
  2. See if they would pay you a 20% commission on all the business you bring to the restaurant that night.
  3. Furthermore, ask if they would be willing to provide a special coupon discount for your friends, family and neighbors.
  4. Print these out. Make sure the special date for the fundraiser is on this coupon.
  5. Additionally, remind your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors that they must bring the coupon to get the special deal. By the way, this also will ensure that you get paid a commission on the sale.
  6. Finally, spread the word about your dancing fundraiser in person, by text, social media and email.
  7. Have fun!

You can easily earn a few hundred dollars a night by doing a family night out fundraiser for your school.
