What kind of dances will these school prom fundraiser ideas work for?

Students, parents and teachers have had success raising money for all different kinds of prom dances and events.

Here are just a few…

After prom.

Sometimes these are also called post-proms. Many parents will host an after prom party for their children. This could be at a restaurant, an amusement park, and even include games, food and activities at the school.

All of this costs money. Our fundraising ideas can help.

Parent prom.

This is a fun way for parents to “relive” their high school prom while raising money for their children’s prom at the same time. Moms and Dads can dress up and enjoy a black tie formal event evening. Furthermore, the students can be the hosts.

And finally, the money earned can offset the high school prom for the graduating class seniors.

Senior prom fundraisers.

This nighttime dance is a rite of passage for teenagers all over America. 

Junior prom

Many Juniors see how much fun seniors have at their prom and they wanted their own. So many schools now host junior proms too.

Middle school

Some junior high schools hold a middle school prom for their seniors that will be graduating and going to high school next year. Our fundraising ideas can help.

Homeschool proms.

Homeschooling has become a very popular choice of educating children. For instance, about 3% of the school age population are home schooled. So many home school districts will organize a prom for their students. Our homeschool prom ideas can make a difference.

Prom banquets.

Some schools will not allow a prom dance. So instead they hold a Prom banquet. Boys and girls will get dressed up just as they would for a dance. They go together to enjoy the banquet with their date and friends.


Adult proms are also called “second chance proms” at times. These are planned for adults that either never got to go to their high school school prom or for those that did not have pleasant school prom memories.

Disability proms.

There are many disabled people that were not able to go to their school prom in high school. So some communities and churches put on disability proms to allow everyone in their community to enjoy this experience. 


Some students do not agree with their school prom policies. Sometimes they will hold an anti-prom instead. Additionally, the anti-prom will allow them to do the things that they want to do. Furthermore, they are often called MORPs. (Which is prom spelled backwards.)

Homecoming dances.

If your school celebrates a Homecoming Queen, then our prom fundraising ideas will be helpful for your HOCO fundraiser.

Easy Tip To Implement!

Any of our fundraising brochures can help you to get the money your students need for your prom dance and party.
