These tips can help any youth movement, youth association, or youth organization raise the funds they are looking for.

They are wonderful to help provide funding for:

  • Specialized programs

  • Educational seminars
  • Support groups
  • Skill building courses
  • Crisis intervention
  • Family support services
  • After school activities
  • Arts and crafts
  • Church activities
  • Community service too.

Youth-led organizations play an important role in society. They help the next generation get involved with Civic engagement, the democratic process, church involvement, as well as taking on community responsibility.

Here are some examples of some of these:

  • American Youth Congress
  • American Youth Hostels
  • YMCA
  • YWCA
  • Big Brothers and Sisters of America

Looking for no cost fundraisers for teens?

Whether you represent national youth organizations or local ones in your community, here are some tried and true favorites:

Car wash

Young adults can start washing cars as soon as this weekend. It is a free way to raise money for your community youth group. Everyone can bring their own rags and buckets. You can charge five dollars for every car washed by your teens.

Bring in the dough!

Our cookie dough catalog is one of the most profitable ways to raise cash for all kinds of  youth empowerment organizations. Your teenagers are equipped with catalogs filled with photos of mouth watering cookies. Your patrons will get 2 pounds of gourmet dough for every $10 donation they make to your cause.

Movie night

Pick a movie favorite and send out your invitations. You can sell tickets and charge a modest entry fee if you tell everyone to bring their own popcorn.

Most Profitable Fundraisers

Youth empowerment organizations are looking for ways to raise awareness and money virtually.

Here are a few suggestions:

Game night during Covid

This can be a virtual fundraiser. There are many online games that you can play. It is only limited by your imagination. Make it a game tournament with a prize and you can charge an entry fee for every contestant. Zoom is a great way to have a game night during Covid.

Online Donation Page

Set up a donation page for your fundraising event using your…

  • Website
  • Facebook page
  • Gofundme page

You can set up a PayPal donate button to make it easy for your patrons and sponsors to give their donations.

Shoe Drive

This is also known as a shoe rally. There are many children, teens and young adults that need shoes in your community. A Shoe drive is a great way to clean out your closet of all those shoes and sneakers that you don’t wear anymore or don’t fit. It’s also a good way to make a difference in your community.

Simply have a drop off place where people can drop off their old shoes during Covid. Your nonprofit organization gets paid by the pound for each pair of shoes donated.


Once you have a worthy cause, simply reach out to everyone in your network. Crowdfunding is just one form of Peer-to-Peer Fundraising.

The concept is a simple one. Many hands make the load light. Tell them why you are looking to raise money. Tell them who it will help and why their small donation can make a difference.

Works for…

  • Trips
  • New equipment
  • Maintenance projects and repairs
  • Expansion of facilities

Small church fundraising ideas

Our brochures are perfect for helping your youth group ministry fundraise for Pastor aide or to raise money for your Church building fund.

Our affordable snacks are only $10 which means most of your patrons will be happy to make a small donation for the church.

Additional ideas for church youth groups include:

  • Patron list fundraiser
  • 50 state rally fundraiser
  • Selling candy.

Fundraiser ideas for small groups

Your students and teens can raise cash for any worthy cause, charity or reason. Maybe you are helping the Ladies Auxiliary for your local VFW hall or fire department. Or perhaps its for a homeless shelter, vets, abused children, or a children’s cancer hospital.

Candle Fundraiser

Some people love candles and enjoy burning them in their homes. Others sell candles to raise money for their nonprofit organization. Check out our winter wonderland catalog for some ideas for candles to sell.


Some people are suckers for suckers. Buy them in bulk and sell them anywhere between $.50 to a dollar each. Be sure to check out our candy fundraisers here…

Youth sports fundraiser ideas

Kids and teens alike love sports. So design a sports fundraising idea for young people and you are sure to have a hit on your hands.

  • Tournaments
  • Thons
  • Obstacle courses
  • Games

Middle school fundraisers do more than just teach children the importance of budgets, goals, and project management. They provide school groups with the necessary supplementary funds they need to see their initiatives come to life. While public school funding is carefully stretched to cover all the children’s basic educational needs, there’s little room left for those imperative enrichment activities that offer an added boost and break from classroom monotony.
