School Fundraising Ideas -
Submission Tips and Guidelines

Please tell us as much information about your school fundraiser as possible. Its often the little details that can help turn a simple idea into a real winner. If you have any special instructions or tips please include them too.

Think about the person who has just joined their school's Parent Teacher Group or fundraising committee. Possibly a total newbie - all enthusiastic and really wanting to discover something good; but at the same time all nervous and inexperienced. What would you say to them? What would you tell them about your favourite fundraiser?

We don't just like new ideas we love to hear your take on all the old favourites as well. How did they work for you? How did you make them a bit special?

Do you have any photos? Please include them. Photos can bring your story to life and visitors to this site love looking at them and seeing what other schools have been getting up to.
