For a fast and successful fundraiser, design a t-shirt with your school name and find a local t-shirt maker who can also set up a personalized website for the sales. Website sales allow for electronic ordering/payment on the buyer's own time; the web link can be distributed to anyone to maximize sales. Set a specific timeframe and spread the link to students, faculty, and anyone else. Shirts can go for $15 each and can be distributed at school once they are ready typically in a week or two.
Degree of effort:
This fundraiser requires minimal effort to set up and promote. The most effort comes from the distribution of the t-shirts.
No investment is necessary; the local t-shirt maker will take their payment from the total sales and write a check for the rest to your organization.
Buyers cannot see the actual t-shirt in person until they are completed and ready to distribute.
