If you are looking for school fundraising ideas that are creative and easy, consider the ideas and tips I found in the article below. Raising thousands of dollars to support your teachers and students may only require the use of a digital SLR camera and a couple of volunteers.

Tips For Easy Fundraisers

(NAPSI)-Picture this: Raising funds can be easier than you imagine if you follow a few tips. Here’s some new school fundraising ideas and creative tips that are sugar-free and don’t require door-to-door sales.

1. Turn existing purchases into a fundraiser

Picateers is a company that turns school Picture Day into a fundraiser. Parents spend $2 billion on school pictures every year-and virtually none of that money goes to the schools. Picateers is changing that. Picateers gives 50 percent of every dollar spent on portraits back to schools. Picateers is able to give cash back because they train a volunteer mom to take the pictures. She snaps the pictures with her digital SLR camera and Picateers does the rest. It’s minimal effort-an elementary school can raise thousands with only two volunteers for a day. Parents love it because they can help their school by simply purchasing their child’s pictures.

2. Get healthy with a Walk-a-thon

With a Walk-a-thon, children have a blast walking to raise money for their school. It’s easy to set up. Children bring home sponsor sheets for parents and family members to pledge either a fixed donation or one that depends on the distance the child walks. Children feel a sense of accomplishment in completing the Walk-a-thon to help their school.

3. Try a fundraiser that delivers all year

eScrip is a company that works with retailers like clothing, electronics and grocery stores to give a percentage of parents’ purchases back to schools. This fundraiser requires minimal effort. A coordinator at a school sends home a sheet for parents to complete, registering their credit and debit cards. Then, when parents shop at participating merchants or buy products on the eScrip Web site using their registered cards, their school earns money throughout the year.

4. Focus on learning

A great fundraiser that supports learning is a Read-a-thon. Typically, parents and family members pledge either a fixed donation or a flexible donation depending on the number of minutes the students read during a two-week period.

Children bring home pledge sheets and start reading. A way to make it even more fun is to ask local merchants to donate prizes for the students who read the most or have a special prize for the entire class that reads the most.

These easy school fundraising ideas mean no more staying up late to bake for bake sales or bothering your neighbors for donations. They can put the “fun” back into fundraising and provide a great return for your school.

Fundraising can be a snap if parent volunteers use digital cameras to capture images for school picture day.

A Unique Online Fundraising Idea

Sick of the same old popcorn and candy sales that add to our nation’s obesity problem?

Spent enough weekends watching your kids washing other people’s cars?

Have enough wrapping paper, cards and magazines at home to last a lifetime?

Finding unique and easy ways to raise money in these tough economic times can be difficult, but we have a ONE-OF-A-KIND solution for you…

The Mental Toughness Academy is offering your athletics, cheer and dance teams an innovative way to raise large sums of money by selling a unique Mental Toughness Training product designed exclusively for youth athletes.

The training is online so there is nothing to ship and includes 24 training videos and 8 guided visualizations, the kids watch on their computers, ipads, cellphones or ipods.

The training sells for $97 and we give your school 50% of the sale! That is a MUCH bigger profit than you can ever get from selling a box of popcorn!

Mental Toughness training benefits the child who just plays sports for fun by helping them build important life skills like confidence, determination, focus and the ability to overcome adversity.

For the serious athlete, the training helps them get their game to the next level and positioned for college recruitment. Both types of athletes learn skills that help them in playing their sports, as well as in their schoolwork, relationships and future careers.

How Does The Program Work….??
Making the sale is very simple. All your club will do is have your students and parents email the opportunity to their friends and family and post it on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter for everyone to see.

Register your organization and you will receive a special link that is only for your group. Once you refer your link — you are done! You just watch your email for sales notifications and enjoy the check or paypal transfer that comes to you. That is it — that’s all you do.

We do all the rest! We have a proven sales process that has been very successful in getting parents to buy the training for their kids. You do not need to sell the product — our sales process does all the work!

Your participants will also look like superstars, because even if your family and friends don’t purchase the product, we give them two FREE products just for taking the time to go to your referral page:

1. Master the Pressure guided visualization their kids can listen to on the way to the game or before going to sleep at night.

2. The 10 Commandments To Being A Great Sports Parent ebook for the parents.

Our fund raising program gives you an opportunity to raise a substantial amount of money on a regular basis — it does not have to be just a one-time push. Whenever someone purchases from your link- at any time, the funds go to your account.

Another plus is that this is not limited to local friends and family, but you can expand your fundraising worldwide to meet your goals. We have sold our product as far away as Australia and the United Arab Emirates.

When your school signs on to be a part of this program it will receive:

*A unique sales link to send out to family and friends via email, Facebook, Twitter, *Linkedin or any other social media site.
*You can track your sales online at anytime and get a current report.
*Your exclusive link never expires and so if someone buys immediately or a year from now your organization still gets credit.
*A page on our website designed specifically for your organization that potential parents go to from your link to see details about the training and get their free gifts.
*Graphics you can use to create fliers to handout to parents.
