PTA Fundraising Tips

If you're involved with the Parent Teacher Association in your school, then you will no doubt have to come up with plenty of fresh new fundraising ideas all the time.

Below you can find several user submitted ideas, that will help you on your way.
If you would like to submit some ideas of your own, why not Register on our forum (it's free!) and share your ideas in the PTA Forum, or, leave a Comment below.

Fetes and fairs
Discos/dances
Quiz evenings
Party Plan (Tupperware, etc)
Promises auction
Jumble sales
Coffee mornings
Sponsored events (sport/music,etc)
Commercially organised event, (fashion show,etc)
Bingo
Draws/raffles
Barbecue
Carboot / tabletop sales
Antiques event
Cake sales
Treasure hunt
Book sales
Craft fayres
Swimming pool revenue
Skittles evening
Beetle drive
Bonfire and fireworks event

Hold a 'campover'. Families can pay to camp on the school fields for a night, you can arrange entertainment, a barbecue and a bonfire (suitably monitored, of course!), the children can help putting up the tents, and everyone can enjoy a bacon butty in the morning.
Hold an evening fun run/walk, organised with a map of the route, and refreshments at the end, you can have certificates for the fastest in the year group, and fastest parents! An entry fee for runners and some fundraising from the spectators, should ensure success.
Get parents to donate their professional skills to the PTA, it doesn't matter what the skill, it could come in handy for an event, or just for managing the PTA
Put on a pantomime, where the parents are the actors!!
Think about combining ideas to maximise funds. Combine a book fair with a coffee morning so people will stay longer, combine a school disco with an event for the parents, such as an auction.

Class Ideas printed our childrens designs on to christmas cards to sell to parents. £1 was donated back to the school for every pack sold. We raised loads of money! Have a look at their website for more details.

I'm not sure exactly why but this site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

You can also raise a lot of money for your school buy selling Raffle Tickets at your Summer and Christmas Fayres. Local Businesses love to support the school by donating prizes.
