Hello, we are a fairly new squadron and are looking for some acceptable fundraising ideas?
Is that something you guys could help me with?
Thanks!

Frozen pizza sales, candy bars, cheesecakes, car washes (plane washes are usually a non-starter).

Co-op coupon sales.   Popcorn sales.

Make sure to get Wing CC approval in advance.

Who is having luck with corporate sponsors, like they do with Adopt-a-School, etc.?  One corporate sponsor handing out a check for $1k would sure beat several weekends of car washes and donut sales.

I have four words and a URL for you:

Walmart Community Grant Program
http://www.cybergrants.com/pls/cybergrants/ao_login.login?x_gm_id=2797&x_proposal_type_id=22074

It's good for up to $2500.00 per Walmart store in your area.  Will you get the max from every store you apply to?  Probably not, but an extra $500.00 from a store or two is a very nice return for an hour spent filling out their online application.

That reminds me...

Many retail chains have a certain amount they are required to 'invest in the community' per directives from there corporate hq through charitable donations, consider other large stores besides Walmart.

There are a lot of options these days. You have the traditional car wash, pizza sales route. You also have a couple of work smarter options. My wife is a teacher and her class holds a fundraiser at Friendly's once a month. My local elementary school holds a McDonald's night. A percentage of every sale goes to the school. Same with Chic-filet. There are also a couple of local businesses that do similar things (between 5-9PM, they will give a percentage of their sales). Some of the locals are much better than the national chains. They're in the community and seem to want to help more. Grants are also an option if you're willing to put in the work on them.

Boosters, and moms.

I don't know what it is. I find that some moms are able to rake in some big donations during booster fundraisers. Our booster held a fundraising event last October for raffle baskets. One mom managed to go around to various businesses and had something like 18 baskets donated to the raffle, free of charge (free advertising and a write-off). It brought in $2500.

Kudos to the moms. They have some gift that I can't even begin to comprehend.
