Spring and summer are the perfect seasons for PTA fundraising, as the warmer weather brings more opportunities for outdoor events and activities. If you’re a parent looking to fundraise money for new resources for pupils, such as playground markings and sports facilities, here are some ideas for PTA fundraising to get you started. Plus, we’ve included ideas that children can get involved in too!
Sponsored Walk or Fun Run
Organizing a sponsored walk or fun run is a great way to encourage pupils to get active while raising money for your school. You can set a target distance and invite pupils to walk or run laps around the school field or local park. Parents can sponsor their children per lap, and you can even invite local businesses to sponsor the event. This is a great opportunity to get your pupils moving and to promote a healthy lifestyle.
A summer fair is a classic fundraising event that never gets old. You can set up stalls selling food, crafts, and games, and invite local businesses to sponsor the event. You can also organize a raffle with prizes donated by parents and local businesses. This is a great opportunity to involve children in the fundraising process, as they can help to set up and run stalls, and even perform music or dance routines for entertainment.
Organizing a sports day is a fun way to get pupils active and to raise money for your school. You can set up a range of sports activities, such as relay races, egg and spoon races, and sack races. Parents can sponsor their children to take part in each activity, and you can even invite local businesses to sponsor the event. This is a great way to promote a healthy and active lifestyle, and to raise money for new sports facilities for your school.
An outdoor cinema is a fun and unique way to fundraise for your school. You can set up a large screen in the school playground or local park and invite parents and pupils to bring blankets and chairs to watch a family-friendly movie. You can sell popcorn and other refreshments and invite local businesses to sponsor the event. This is a great opportunity to bring the community together and to raise money for new playground markings or other resources for your school.
A plant sale is a great way to fundraise for your school while promoting a love of gardening. You can ask parents and pupils to donate plants and seedlings, and set up a stall to sell them. You can even invite local garden centres to donate plants or sponsor the event. This is a great opportunity to involve children in the fundraising process, as they can help to plant and care for the seedlings.
There are many fun and creative ideas for PTA fundraising for your school during the spring and summer seasons. However, once you have fundraised, it is important to invest in resources that will benefit pupils for years to come.
