Elementary School Fundraising Ideas

Entertainment® is a Highly Successful Elementary School Fundraiser!

Elementary School Fundraisers Elementary school fundraising is often the key to funding technology, equipment, events, trips and other important resources that make a positive difference in your students’ lives.

Entertainment® has been helping schools and groups like yours meet their fundraising goals for over 50 years, and you can use our experience to make your next fundraiser a huge success!

There are many different fundraising ideas, but all elementary school fundraisers fall into two categories:
events and product sales.
Both can be an effective means to raise funds, and most schools rely on both events and product fundraisers.

While fundraising success relies on motivated volunteers and great planning, product fundraisers typically can be run with fewer volunteers, and generate profit in a much shorter period.

Elementary School Fundraiser Idea

In selecting a product for your elementary school fundraiser you are making a decision for every family in your school. Therefore it’s important that the product have:

  • High Value compared to its price, so that your supporters are rewarded for helping your school
  • Strong Profit for every unit sold, so that you can quickly reach your goal
  • Sales Tools to make it easier for you to organize your fundraiser, and for students to sell
Entertainment® fundraising products deliver all this and more!

We recommend the following fundraising ideas:
