Fundraising Ideas

If you're like me, you're tired of the same old fundraisers going around;  cookie dough, magazines, beef jerky, wrapping paper.  Here are a couple of ideas to think about:

Reusable grocery bags made from pack cloth and 1 inch wide poly webbing.  We have many colors to choose from.  You can mix and match your pack cloth and webbing to get the color combination you want.  I made one for Oregon State (black pack cloth and orange webbing) and one for University of  Oregon (yellow pack cloth and green webbing).  You can match colors to your school, club, or work. I was able to get three bags out of 40 inches of pack cloth.  Each bag takes 3 1/2 yards of webbing.  The total cost for the three bags is under $12.00, making each bag under $4.00.  Turn around and sell them for $6.00- $8.00 apiece.

Another thought is lanyards with your school's name or sport printed on them.  If you look at our facebook page (Econo Sales), you can see some examples of lanyards that we have sold.  Talk to Alan on Fridays if you're interested.  Allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.  The cost to you would be $4.00 each, but you can sell them for $8.00 each. There is no minimum number to order.

  1. Food fundraisers are always a good idea to generate funding. The most important thing is to generally get the community together and everyone involved for a fulfilling event. I think that as long as it's fun, you have a good chance in getting towards your estimated profits.
