Below are ABC Fundraising’s top 3 Spring Fundraising ideas For Spring Fundraisers

1. Discount Card Fundraiser – Up to 93% Profit!

The best Spring fund raiser for groups with 30 or more people is the Discount Card Fundraiser developed by ABC Fundraising. With a discount card fund raiser your school or church group can earn 1000s or even tens of thousands this spring with  little effort. The very first thing you will need to do is download and print out the ABC Fundraising Merchant Wish List.

When you complete the  selection process you will fax or email the wish-list back to ABC Fundraising and we will then begin setting up your Spring Fundraiser. We will secure 15 local merchants for your discount card who will each offer excellent discounts such as  “buy 1 get 1 free” or 50% off or other great discounts.

When the discount card is completed you will then be able to approve or disapprove of the fundraising card. At that point if we need to make any changes we will make the changes and then send the cards to you for your spring fundraiser. This process  can take up to 4 weeks so please be sure to get your wish list to ABC Fundraising as soon as possible so your spring fundraiser can be a gigantic success.

Scratch Card Fundraiser Scratch & Help Outside Of Card2. Scratch & Help Spring Fundraiser

The Spring fundraiser of choice for many schools and churches this year will very likely be the Scratch & Help Fundraiser from ABC Fundraising. With up to 90% Profit and No Money Up-Front, the Scratch and Help Fund raiser has been helping schools raise more money than any other fundraiser in the fundraising industry. I

f you’re looking for an easy and extremely profitable spring fundraiser than you should definitely try the Scratch & Help Fundraiser by ABC Fundraising. With the Scratch & Help spring fundraiser your school or church members will get one scratch card each and then begin asking friends family and neighbors to scratch and donate the uncovered amount. 

In return for the donation (usually about $3) the donor receives a sheet of 10 valuable coupons from our National sponsors like  Pizza Hut, Jiffy Lube, Target stores and more. Each Card raises a total of $100.00 and your group keeps $80.00.  That’s an 80% profit. We will also send you an additional 10% in FREE bonus scratch cards to bring your profit to a whopping 90%! Get started with the Scratch and Help Fundraiser for your spring fundraiser this year and earn thousands of dollars in as little as two weeks.

Example of a fundraising spinner3. Spinners® Fundraiser

The Spinners® Fundraiser by ABC Fundraising® is the most profitable spring fundraiser offered by ABC Fundraising . Each Spinner raises an average of $210 and we suggest that you order one Spinner per member of your school or church. A group of just 10 church or school members can very easily raise over $2000 in a short 2 week period. 

A group of 100 members using this excellent spring fundraising idea can raise $20,000. If you have a cheerleading team or a football team or a baseball team or a soccer team that needs to raise money this spring, then a Spinners fundraiser can be the perfect choice for you.

This fundraiser is actually very similar to the Scratch & Help® fundraiser however your donors will be spinning a little arrow to get the the donation amount instead of  a couple of boxes. For this reason the Spinners can be re-used year after year which makes it the world’s first re-usable fundraiser as well a “green” fundraising option for your school or church.

Get started with ABC Fundraising® for your Spring fundraiser and be one of our next fundraising success stories.

fundraising ideas for high schoolers

Our Favorite Spring Fundraisers Are Below

1. Game Tournaments

Average Fundraising Amount Raised: $1,300
Cost To Get Started? $100
Popularity: √√√

A game tournament is an engaging Spring fundraising event that leverages the power of gamification to maximize fundraising revenue.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Gather a group of eager and competitive players and exciting games (board games, card games, video games, etc.).
  2. Charge a small fee for participants who would like to enter the tournament, and secure an exciting prize for the winner (our suggestion is branded merchandise).
  3. Allow participants to play their favorite games until you’ve narrowed it down to a single winner.

This exciting fundraiser provides participants with an opportunity to showcase their gaming skills while raising money for a cause they care about. Plus, everyone will be vying for first place (even if the only prize is bragging rights).

2. Gift Card Fundraiser

Average Fundraising Amount Raised: $2,100+
Cost To Get Started? $200
Popularity: √√

A great Spring fundraising idea. This works especially well during the holiday season when people are buying gifts for their friends and loved ones.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Team up with a fundraising company like Fundscrip who will supply discounted gift cards for your club or organization to resell.
  2. Receive your discounted gift cards and start selling them at full price to families, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and your overall community.
  3. The difference between the discounted price you pay and the price you resell the gift cards for is your profit.

When you buy these gift cards upfront in bulk, you can receive significant discounts on the face value. More than likely you’ll be able to earn an average of 10% profit on each gift card. It’s a super easy fundraiser, and it’s a way for your supporters to contribute by purchasing something they can get good use from.

3. Gift Wrap Fundraiser

Average Fundraising Amount Raised: $3,100
Cost To Get Started? $100
Popularity: √√

Another great fundraising idea to consider running leading into the holiday season is a gift-wrapping fundraiser.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Find a great location with a lot of foot traffic and advertise your gift wrapping services to everyone in your local area. You might even want to contact local shopping centers and see if they’d be willing to let you set up your gift-wrapping station there.
  2. You can charge a small fee for each item wrapped or work off of tips/donations.

Make sure your volunteers have plenty of gift-wrapping experience, as you’ll raise more money when people are happy with their beautifully wrapped gifts.

4. Sponsorship Banner

Average Fundraising Amount Raised: $1,100+
Cost To Get Started? $50
Popularity: √√√

A sponsorship banner is a fantastic way to leverage community relationships with local businesses and organizations.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Contact local businesses (either businesses that you have existing relationships with or ones that you are interested in building relationships with) and propose a potential sponsorship.
  2. Offer them a banner on your website and a physical banner at a high traffic location such as a school in response to a certain donation amount.

This is an easy fundraising idea for clubs to run because you’ll only need a few volunteers to make calls to local businesses or visit them in person to sell your banner sponsorship. Plus, it strengthens existing corporate relationships and paves the way for future partnership opportunities as well.

5. Cell Phone Fundraiser

Average Fundraising Amount Raised: $4,300
Cost To Get Started? $20
Popularity: √√√

Many groups are turning to cell phone recycling fundraisers to raise a ton of money without having to ask for financial contributions from supporters.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Set up a date to run your fundraiser and advertise your cell phone recycling initiative for about a month.
  2. Place flyers on people’s doorsteps, on telephone poles, and at stores and coffee shops.
  3. Collect old cell phones from members and supporters that are no longer in use.

The more places you advertise your fundraiser, the more phones your club will collect and therefore the more money you’ll be able to raise. The best phones to collect are iPhones and Samsungs, as you’ll be able to turn these phones into a company like ecoATM that will pay you a surprisingly high amount of money for each phone.

6. Ink Cartridge Fundraiser

Average Fundraising Amount Raised: $4,300
Cost To Get Started? $20
Popularity: √√√

This next fundraising idea, in a similar fashion to the cell phone recycling fundraiser, is the ink cartridge recycling fundraiser. You can run this fundraiser the same way you would run the cell phone fundraiser, or even host these simultaneously.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Gather outdated and/or used-up inkjet printer cartridges and toner cartridges.
  2. Encourage friends, family members, neighbors, and colleagues to donate their old cartridges as well.
  3. Place bulletins all over the community to inform individuals within the neighborhood to know exactly where they can drop their old items off.

Some teams have been able to raise thousands of dollars by partnering with recycling organizations for this easy and practical fundraising idea. This can easily end up being a long-term fundraiser, where funds can be gathered year-round and set aside for upcoming group fundraisers.
