Putting the ‘FUN’ in Fundraising & Custom School Apparel
From elementary school through college, nothing gets people motivated like a school custom apparel fundraiser.
Fundraising should be FUN, it is a time to bring the community together to work towards the common goal of supporting one another. Not only should these fundraisers be enjoyable, but they should also be effective in order to reach your school fundraising goals!
School apparel fundraisers are proven to be one of the most effective ways to maximize your donations!
To help keep your schools fundraising fresh, here are five creative ideas to incorporate custom apparel into your next event!
With custom school apparel for prizes, this event will have everybody rocking and rolling. Lip-sync battles are incredibly popular with the YouTube generation, and “Carpool Karaoke” videos regularly get millions of views.
Set up a stage in the school auditorium and have people sign up individually or in groups to lip-sync and perform their favorite songs; they can even perform in costume! To raise money, attendees can buy custom designed school spirit apparel.
You can also give them the opportunity to buy raffle tickets for additional school spirit wear and other prizes. The performers are judged by a panel of volunteers, and the winner (or winning group) can go home with a set of custom school spirit tshirts to show off to the rest of the school.
Custom Class School Spirit Apparel Design Contest
This is a great way to have students engage in some friendly competition as well as exercise their creative muscles! Have each grade select 3 students to compete. Each student will then design a custom class tshirt for their grade. You can have the class vote on the custom design they want to represent their class. In addition to fundraising, you are engaging the students and adding ownership to the custom class apparel.
Organize a Community Sale
Organize a community-wide sale in the school’s athletic fields or parking lot. Rent spaces based on a first-come first-served basis, and host the sale on a weekend, asking for student and faculty volunteers to help sell drinks and snacks. In addition, selling custom high school apparel could be a great way to raise additional funds.
The Sports Team Fundraiser
Encourage team spirit and school loyalty by hosting a sports team fundraiser! Have each sports team design their own custom spirit wear tshirts. They can then sell the Fan Tee to their fans, friends and families. What better way to support the school team by wearing their Fan Tees to all the games? Not only does this show support and ramp up team spirit, it also helps raise funds for the school sports team.
Not only is this a fun idea for students, it’s one that can get the whole family involved. Approximately 36 million students participate in organized sports annually, which makes the team aspect of this event highly favorable. In order to raise money for your fundraiser, families or groups of students pay a fee to form a team and then compete in a school-wide scavenger hunt. Team fees can go towards custom team tshirts, as well as custom school spirit tshirts, which can be offered as prizes to the first three teams to finish the scavenger hunt. The additional money can go toward the fundraising bucket.
Approximately 34% of students in activity programs use it as a way to show school spirit, and 89% of principals believe it’s overwhelmingly important to build school spirit at school events. These fun and creative ideas for custom apparel fundraisers can not only help raise money for your school, they can help build a community through school spirit.
