How To Host A Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser

November 2 2017

Hosting a pancake fundraiser is a simple and fun event that you can use to raise money for your team, cause, or school. It’s a fairly straightforward fundraising event, and it can really help bring a community or school together. This kind of fundraiser works best in a school environment, or a community centre where you have access to a commercial sized kitchen. If you want to run a pancake breakfast fundraiser for a sport’s team, you could organize it as breakfast before a tournament, practice, or game. 


What you’ll need for your pancake fundraiser

For your pancake breakfast fundraiser you’ll need lots of pancake mix, eggs, milk, and enough plates, cups, cutlery, and napkins for all of your supporters. You’ll also need physical tickets so can sell spots for your fundraiser in advance.  Make sure that you promote your fundraising event so that your participants can plan to attend. Have a flyer that you can hand out at school or at your community center, as well as a flyer that you can share through email. Put your event on Facebok so that your supporters can be reminded of when and where your event is. Have a team of volunteers available to help you make and serve the pancakes for your fundraising event. 


How to host your pancake fundraiser

Sell tickets to your pancake breakfast in advance. You can decide if you are going to host an all-you-can-eat fundraiser or if your supporters will purchase tickets for a serving of pancakes. Hosting your fundraiser as an all you can eat even makes things a lot simpler for you and your volunteers. This means that you only have to worry about one entry fee for your supporters, and you don’t have to worry about processing supporters who want to purchase more food at your pancake fundraiser. 


Bonus cash back for your fundraiser 

Purchasing your ingredients through a FlipGive campaign page could earn your fundraiser an extra 10% cash back. You can also receive donations for your cause through a FlipGive campaign page. When you promote your funsdraising event, give your supporters the option to sponsor part of your event, or donate through your FlipGive campaign.
