POTENT AND
CREATIVE PTA
FUNDRAISING
IDEAS
@DonorBox

Parent Teacher Associations
PTAs, or Parent Teacher Associations,
are school-based organizations
dedicated to making schools a better
place

Goals And Objectives
PTAs vary in size and in the budget
available to them. However, whatever
their financial situation, most PTAs still
need to fundraise to achieve their
goals and objectives

Whatever your
situation is, here
are our best PTA
Fundraising
Ideas

1
Membership Fees
By setting up a membership fee for all
parents, PTAs can ensure a basic
income for their association

 Members should be able to clearly see how
their contributions made a positive impact

 Accept donations at each PTA meeting or
organize an additional fundraising event

Move your membership fees and
other payments online

PRO TIP

DONORBOX
Start receiving online donations for
your PTA

2
Hobbies, Arts and Crafts Fair
Enables you to engage your school
community by allowing parents to
show off their hobbies, art, and crafts

 Organize a fair where parents can sell their
work

 Have a percentage of all the proceedings go to
your PTA

3
Read-A-Thon
PTA will make money by having
students get pledges from relatives,
neighbors, family, friends, and others
for completing a certain amount of
reading

 Book sale or a book swap to get the kids
excited about reading
 A Kindle or bookstore gift cards would be
great prizes
 Read-a-thon even more fun and profitable for
your PTA

4
Use the Non-Prominent Holidays
Good idea to organize a fundraising
event on holidays like President’s Day
or Columbus Day

 Encourage attendees to bring their favorite
dishes or select a ‘theme/cuisine’ for the
potluck
 The cost of organizing a potluck is quite low
due to the donated food
 Invest a little bit of money in decorations,
small games, and other activities to enrich the
event

5
Grab A Bag
Grab A Bag is a PTA fundraising idea
with a lot of potential

 Have everyone donate small items or spend a
small amount of money at a dollar store to
increase the number of items on offer
 You could also create a student version of the
grab bags and fill them with notebooks, snack
bars, caps and more

6
Parents and Teachers Talent Show
Talent shows are pretty common in
the school fundraising and the PTA
fundraising world

 Start promoting the idea to parents and
teachers early, offering examples of the types
of talents they can show off
 Making the event lighthearted and fun can
only increase its fundraising potential

7
Student Art Show
Organize a student art show. It’s a
great way to build the community
spirit, showcase your art program and
boost the students’ confidence

 Charge an admission fee
 Don’t charge an admission fee and instead
charge for nibbles and refreshment
 Auction off or sell the art
 Any combination of the above

8
Sports Day
Sports Days are all about students
competing in a variety of activities and
sports winning trophies and prizes

 Lemonade/tea stand - Set up a refreshment
stall
 Picnic - Organize a picnic breakfast
 BBQ - At some point, parents will get hungry

9
Parents Night Out
Every parent appreciates an occasional
night out or off the childcare duty!
Help your peers out and raise funds
for your PTA at the same time

 Offer to take care of the kids while their
parents are out
 Gather a couple of volunteers and see if you
can use your school to host this fundraiser
 Charge per hour or choose a flat rate

PTA fundraising can be
challenging
