The classic lemonade stand consists of the perfect cost-efficient business plan – set up shop on a busy street corner with a foldable table and some cold, refreshing lemonade, and you’re in business. But sadly, lemonade stands are quickly going out of fashion as the go-to way to make some quick cash. With the extreme urbanization and density of cities, sending your child out to sit on a busy street corner isn’t what it used to be.
Thankfully, there are countless new options for fundraising endeavors that can heighten success and funds more than any lemonade stand ever could. Try out the following fundraising enhancements, and accomplish the fundraising goals you set out for.
Used Book Sale
When people think of kid’s fundraisers, they think of lemonade stand ideas and related low-budget fundraising. Starting a successful fundraiser should not cost much if any, money. Throughout the years, kids accumulate a lot of books and novels. Clear up some space on the bookshelf by going through the piles of books with your child, and donating unwanted ones, or doubles, to a used book sale.
With the power of social media, creating a small used book sale as a team fundraiser is an easy thing to do. Create an event, invite friends and family, and get other team members going through their child’s books, as well. You don’t have to charge much for each book, say, two or three dollars apiece, to raise a decent amount of funds.
Kids Car Wash
A kids car wash is another classic childhood fundraiser that is fun and safe for both adults and children. If the group that your child is planning to fundraise for operates out of a community center, approach the management to see about using a free area of the parking lot to hold an afternoon carwash fundraiser. If a community center is not available, approach local shops and businesses about the possibility of utilizing some of their free space.
Kids can wash cars, bikes, scooters, and any other mode of transportation that may need a little, but perhaps not completely thorough, scrub.
Nowadays, fundraising online is possibly the best fundraising option, as far as lemonade stand ideas go, for any team or event. FlipGive is an online fundraising platform that allows fundraisers to quickly and easily create fundraising pages, where people can shop popular brands that donate cash back to their cause.
This year, upgrade from the typical lemonade stand ideas and pursue fundraising with proven results. For more information on fundraising with FlipGive, visit FlipGive online or call 1-844-GET-FLIP today.
