Fundraising ideas

Conducting a K-Kids club fundraising project can be a sensitive issue, especially if it is perceived that the club’s fundraising activities might interfere with the school’s fundraising efforts. The key to conducting a successful fundraiser is to work with school administration and raise funds for school equipment or betterment. 

When thinking about raising funds consider all possibilities. Your K-Kids club can work with the sponsoring Kiwanis club to seek funding from community organizations. Remember to include the school's parent, teacher group when planning. 

Some of these fundraising suggestions might be applicable for your club, and some may not. Consider the following possibilities, and remember to review school policy and conduct only fundraising projects that fall within policy guidelines. These generally apply to schools within the United States.
