16 Easy Daycare Fundraisers
Here’s a list of some of our best daycare fundraisers. They work well for daycare centers, and preschool and childcare centers too!
For best results, we encourage you to mix and match them, because if you have two fundraising events a year instead of one, your daycare can earn twice as much money.
Tea party fundraiser
In this tea party fundraiser, all of the children get dressed up like they are going to a fancy tea party. You can also make hats for the kids! Add a little lace and any dress is ready for a tea party!
Teach the children to drink tea with the pinkie finger up just like they did in the old days! And remember to invite their teddy bears too.
Can you see how this will create lots of opportunities for fun photos and memories? So, make sure to post these on Facebook, Instagram and your favorite social media sharing site.
Kids day out
This is a great community fundraiser to raise money for your daycare. You can have live music, food crafts, bounce house, jumping castles, games, etc.
Invite everyone in the neighborhood. You’re not only raising money for your children, but you also get free advertising for your daycare center. This is also a great outdoor event for any summer or spring.
Parents night out
In the last fundraiser, the kids got a day out. In this fundraiser, it is the parents that get a night out on the town.
The daycare facility serves as the baby sitter! Simply drop the kids off at the daycare center and enjoy taking your mate out on a date again, just like you did in the old days.
Advertise this heavily in your community. Remember to also post flyers advertising your fundraising event at the library, at laundromats, etc., because you want as many people as possible to come.
Cookie dough fundraisers for daycare
Do you know any kids that like cookies? Of course you do.
Think back to some of your favorite memories growing up as a kid. Do you remember eating cookies and milk after school? Or maybe making homemade cookies with your mom in the kitchen? I bet you can almost smell the aroma of cookies baking already.
Our gourmet cookie dough fundraiser allows your children to enjoy these memories too. For $10, your friends and family get 2 pounds of gourmet cookie dough. And yes, there are also plenty of flavors to choose from!
Just suppose your daycare earned up to five dollars for every tub of cookie dough they sold. How many cookie dough tubs would you sell? Your preschool gets free training and free brochures to make sure you succeed. This is because we want you to come back to us next year too!
Daycare fundraisers—Touch a truck
Kids love to touch big trucks. Usually mom or dad will say don’t touch that.
In this fundraiser, parents will gladly donate to give their kids a chance to touch big trucks.
Where can you get trucks from? First of all, invite the local equipment rental company.
Additionally, you can invite the local fire department too! And finally, reach out to contractors and construction companies to see if they would bring some of their big trucks by.
However, you might be wondering, “how can these companies do this for free?”
The answer is because they get plenty of free advertising. They can hand out fliers and business cards advertising their services to the families at your daycare or preschool fundraiser.
Holiday breakfast fundraising event
A great way to get people into the holiday spirit is to hold a breakfast fundraiser. Simply ask a local restaurant if they would be willing to host you. Many of them have a back room you can use for your fundraiser.
How do you make money?
Most restaurants will gladly give you a discount for organizing the party. This is because you are bringing new customers to them.
Finally, your daycare can easily raise from 10 to 20% profit on this fun breakfast event.
Polar express night pajama party
What are you get when you combine movie night and pajamas? You get one fun fundraising event.
Kids love the Polar Express movie, don’t they? Actually you can do this with any movie. You can have the kids vote on the movie that they want to watch.
Furthermore, talk this up on social media. Moms can also bring snacks like popcorn to make it even more enjoyable.
Daycare fundraiser yard sale
Just suppose every family in your preschool came together and had one big yard sale? That would make one heck of a big yard sale, wouldn’t it?
If you hold it in your parking lot, then you would also get free advertising for your child care center.
And finally, parents can either donate items out right, or donate a portion of every sale to the day care center.
Trail mix fundraisers
Imagine selling trail mix that people like to snack on.
Nuts, raisins, and everything else you can imagine. And there are many varieties for people to choose from. Your daycare center earns up to a 50% profit on every sale.
We supply you with everything you need to succeed. Simply show them the brochure and let them pick the trail mix they like best.
So, what will you do with the money that you raise?
Preschool bake sale
You can count on the moms and dads in your school to support you with an old fashioned big sale. How does it work?
Everyone makes something homemade and donates it to the bake sale. This way there will be something for everyone to taste.
Make sure you tell everyone about your daycare bake sale.
There’s a good chance that many of the children in your daycare have pets at home. Why not hold a pet party?
Each of the kids can bring their favorite pet. This will provide many opportunities for photos to be taken.
Remember to have a mop nearby to clean up any accidents if you know what I mean!
Kids love scavenger hunts, don’t they?
Ideas for scavenger hunts are simply limited by your imagination. Additionally, you can search online for scavenger hunt ideas for your event.
Finally, you can sell tickets for everyone to participate.
Bottle and can drive fundraiser for childcare
Do you know people that drink bottled water, soda or beer?
Here is your opportunity to help the environment and raise cash for your daycare.
Instead of people simply throwing these out in the garbage, you will encourage people to save the environment. Set up a box in front of your daycare center people can donate to.
Additionally, you may ask them to rinse out the cans before dropping them off — otherwise, you will need to do it yourself to prevent wanted pests.
Ice cream booth daycare fundraisers
Do you like ice cream? Most people do.
This is a great way to raise money for daycare. People are willing to line up to get an ice cream cone. Perhaps you have done this yourself. So why not imagine selling ice cream on a sunny afternoon?
Photography fundraiser for preschools
Team up with a local photographer that specializes in taking pictures of children. Very often they will have all kinds of costumes and props to take the most adorable pictures.
Once the parents see these photos, they will not be able to resist buying a package. Your daycare center earns a commission on every picture sold.
Auntie Anne’s pretzel daycare fundraisers
If you have been to the mall’s food court then you know about Auntie Anne’s pretzels.
Now you can get the same great original pretzel taste at home. They taste amazing out of the oven, don’t they? The only thing better than eating a hot pretzel is making them together with your children.
