Tickets are sold in advance to raise money and get the students excited.

Why It’s a Good Idea: Showing a movie is a low-cost event. Ask teachers and faculty to volunteer their time to help the evening go smoothly. All your profits can go directly back to the school!
It is a good idea because watching a movie is a low-cost activity. Teachers and staff are requested to volunteer their time to help the party go smoothly. All your profits can go straight back to school!
Tip: in addition to movie tickets, you can increase your sales by selling popcorn, soda, and candy to moviegoers. You can even turn the evening into a “sleepover” for students and schedule other activities in the evening.
Penny Wars is a fun game that not only raises money for the school, but also pits different classes of students against each other. Each class has its own money collection jug, and students are encouraged to fill it only with pennies and cash to earn points. Each penny is one point, which makes each dollar 100 points. The team with the most points on the weekend wins! 
It is a good idea because a friendly competition is always fun, but it’s also an easy way to raise money without your students making a big financial commitment. They just need to find some change on their couch cushions at home!
Tip: In addition to asking students to put pennies in their classroom jars, you can also make the game more fun by adding silver coins to the mix. When a competitor puts a nickel, dime, or quarter in your jar, they take points off your team!
Books are an expensive but necessary article in school. An easy way to expose your students to new books is to host a reading event. Students are encouraged to donate their used books to the school. Then, organize a book sale to let students discover new and interesting titles.
Why It’s a Good Idea: Buying brand new wholesale jeans can be expensive. Encourage students to read without worrying about a financial burden of paying full price!

Tip: keep a reading tray for your textbook. Encourage students to donate old textbooks and offer discounts on new ones for the next school year. Sell old textbooks at a discount to needy students and raise money for your school.
Alumni are an invaluable resource for fundraising. Host a school lunch or other event to raise money for the school. Sell tickets, collect donations for the gift basket, and create a presentation about the state of the school.
It is a good idea because this event is a great way to show what your school has done with previous donations and what it plans to do with future donations!
Tip: getting alumni involved in fundraising can be more challenging if you have to find their contact information first. Keeping an updated database is important to keep in touch with your alumni. If you don’t have one yet, now is a good time to start one!
Ask your students, faculty and alumni to donate to the silent auction basket. Have your students put baskets full of donated items together. Invite family and alumni to a party and auction off your basket.
It is a good idea because in return for a donation to the school, people have the chance to win fancy baskets, tickets or jewelry.
Tip: an easy way to get the creative baskets that people want is to give each basket a different theme. Some simple themes are movie night, spa day, or game day tickets!
Host a karaoke night at your school! Students are allowed to sign up to sing a song of their choice and are charged a fee for that song. You can also sell tickets to increase your school’s profits.
It is a good idea because karaoke is a fun opportunity for students to have a little fun. Students can show off their skills, or sing songs as if they were at home alone. Anyway, it’s bound to be an explosion!
