I am looking for fundraising ideas for our nursing club. The only thing we can't do is food (local health department restrictions).
We need an idea for Thanksgiving and for Christmas!
It is to fund some of the nursing scholarships
Here are a few things we do at our school, mind you we have a dress code at our school.
For instance you can sell "dress-down" vouchers for like 2-5 bucks. We sell ours for 2. This allows the student to wear whatever to school for 1 day, that day is pre determined as well. You get money they get ticket and get to wear shorts to school, or flip flops, like I said our school is very strict about clothing.
You can do a can/bottle drive....people in your school drink sodas I am sure, get containers for those and you can sell them to a recycling center.
You can have change wars.....each class at your school, or in your department, depending on the size of your school, gets a large container and everyone that wants can drop change into the container.... class with the most change wins a pizza party.....this one is best done over a months time.
Car washes are a fun way to make money, if you are in a warm climate like I am in Florida.
Contact local businesses or students parents to donate items, or gift certificates, for a auction. Local artists like to do stuff like this too....they are a great source for this type of stuff.
You can do a maid for a day sales..... Need faculty approval for this one..... faculty will "buy" your services for a specific time period....You do gopher type things for this specific time period.....These things are to be done around the school, not in a private home setting. The faculty member signs off on the time you spent doing whatever for them...upon its completion the money is given......or if you all decide the money can be done at first. Instructors and office staff love this one....they don't have to make all those annoying copies for a while.....
You can get local businesses, movie tickets really make this basket a winner, to donate items for a "gift basket" the larger the better, make the basket and sell tickets. The highest bidder wins....all proceeds go to your department. Faculty really get involved. You can do a male staff one with stuff like sports stuff, fishing stuff, tool things, dinner or movie tickets guys like too.....ladies do a candle, movie, manicure, massage, spa, music type basket..... for the holidays you can make a meal basket...turkey and the works... or if not highest bidder wins... sell tickets for a few dollars and have a raffle, this depends on the school you attend.
You can have a weight loss challenge...set a date...people pay to enter.....official weigh-in.... winner gets ___________ whatever seems sufficient.
Student nurse wars.....have chapters of your schools, if there are several, or other nursing schools. Teams would compete on MAR errors, nursing diagnosis for clients, student nurse trivia.
Entry fees for a talent show. This can be really fun. You can REALLY draw in a lot of students with this.
Hope some of this gave you a little help. Good luck hunting for money......
