Fundraising Ideas

Our #1 goal at American Prom is to help make Prom planning easier and economical for all schools across the nation. Prom costs can add up in a heart beat and we know how much you want this event to be spectacular.  We are committed to helping you achieve your Prom dreams so we have compiled a list of successful fundraising ideas to help you get started with your money-making events.  Choose two or three ideas (or more) and let the cash flow begin!

Spaghetti Dinner -  Serve up some pasta and a variety of sauces for your Italian night.  Add some garlic bread and a salad to top it off. 

School Spirit Clothing Sale - Have caps, stadium cups, t-shirts, pom poms, and pennants available for sale! Have your school logo and a fun slogan imprinted on the front of the items.  What's the added bonus to this idea? It's the boost it provides to your school spirit.

Photo Op - Hire a photographer to take family photos!  Put on your cheesy smiles and gather up your friends or family for a perfect keepsake that also makes cash for your Prom.  Check around as many studios have fundraising packages available for this purpose - making your school some serious cash.

Survivor Services - Recruit as many students as you can to work as many hours as they have.  Sell your services (mowing, painting, raking, cleaning) for a fee to people in the community.  Every dime you make goes directly to your pockets.  Make this a contest to see who can work the most hours and reward a prize to that student!

Sports Contests - Have a free-throw contest at the half-time of a basketball game or hold a field goal kicking contest before a football game.  Ask local companies to donate prizes to the winners.

Ice Cream Social - Hold an old-fashioned ice cream social at your school.  Serve ice cream and all the toppings.

Viva Las Vegas Night - Gear this evening toward the parents.  Have them gamble for donated prizes or services provided by the students.

Holiday Help - Spread the cheer and bring in some bucks this holiday season by setting up a gift wrapping table at your school.  Be prepared with wrapping paper, bows, scissors, tape, and tags! 

Walk-a-Thon - This one is always popular and proves a wonderful fundraising idea.  Collect pledges before the walk and watch the cash pour in.

Concert Night - Have your school choir, band, or orchestra hold a special concert for the community.  Sell tickets to friends, families, and neighbors!

Dance-a-Thon - Have your participants get sponsors for this event.  Have the sponsors pledge a certain amount for each hour danced or a flat donation for the entire night. Provide some snacks and some great music for them to dance the night away. 

Bowl-a-thon - Grab those great looking shoes and hit the lanes for some easy and quick cash.  Again, have sponsors pledge a certain amount for each game or a flat donation for the night.

Create a Cookbook - Gather your student's favorite recipes and compile a cookbook.  Sell them to friends and family for a serious profit!
