School may be out for the summer, but that doesn’t mean the fundraising needs take a break until the fall. To be ready for the demands of the next academic year, summer is an important time for school fundraising. Luckily, the warm weather also means that there are plenty of opportunities for fun fundraising activities. Our team at Effective Fundraising Solutions is here to help you come up with great ideas to meet your fundraising goals this summer.


Here are three school fundraising ideas to help your school this summer.

Picnic and Movie Night

There’s a lot to love about summer, and the warm nights are certainly on the list. Because of the warmer weather, you can host more outdoor activities later in the evening. A great way to bring your community together and raise some money is to have a picnic or barbeque followed by an outdoor movie night. Ask participants or local restaurants to donate food and sell tickets to your event. Pick a family-friendly movie and offer a discounted family ticket rate to encourage more people to come.


Outdoor Activities

Warm summer weather means plenty of opportunities to get outside and organize activities that are easy to turn into fundraisers. During the really hot summer months, organize a water balloon fight and have people sign up as teams to join a tournament. You can also organize these tournaments with traditional sports, but who doesn’t love a water balloon fight? Walkathons and fun runs are also easy events to organize that are great for summer.


Online Fundraising

As fun as in-person activities are, people often fill their summers with plans and family activities they don’t have time for during the school year. Families still want to support their schools, however, which is why online fundraising is such a benefit. EFS has plenty of campaigns that are easy to promote online through email blasts and social media.
