Spring fundraising event ideas
Now that the weather will be nice, you might consider planning an outdoor fundraising event. Here are a few ideas to try:
- Carnival fundraiser

Pine Straw Fundraisers. Many people are looking for ways to fix up their gardens. Some youth programs have had success selling bales of pine straw that people could put in the garden beds.
Make a deal with a local garden center that sells pine straw. Add a dollar or two per bail. Offer to deliver for an extra fee. You can earn a couple of hundred dollars selling pine straw to your neighbors, friends and family this spring. Remember to advertise your pine straw sale using social media.
April & May fundraisers
Brainstorm with your fundraising committee on ways to raise money this April.
Here are a few popular April themes:
- April fools day fundraiser. You can sell April fools prank insurance. This protects the victim from any potential pranks. Target local celebrities and business owners and see if they would be happy to play along with you.
- Tax day fundraiser. April 15 is income tax day here in the states. This is a perfect opportunity for local businesses to make a donation to your youth group and get a write off on the taxes.
- Easter themed fundraisers. Use your imagination here. Think about combining a church fundraising event with an Easter egg hunt. There are plenty of opportunities with this popular holiday.
- Cinqo Del Mayo fundraiser. Team up with a local mexican restaurant and host your dinner or lunch event there. Your school can get a cut of the sales generated.
