Summer Fundraising Events to Consider

Summer Fundraising Events to Consider

Summertime is just around the corner, and between May and July, there are plenty of ways that you can raise funds for your school. Whether you want to add a new school canopy or refresh the sporting equipment at your school, here are some fun summer fundraising events that you can host.

Outdoor Cinema

Outdoor cinemas are a great option for those looking to host a single event. You can select a good film that is appropriate for your students and then sell tickets to them and their families to attend the event.

You can boost funds raised at the event by selling concessions like drinks and food. You can also raise the awareness of current projects at the beginning of the event before the film starts.

Sponsored Walks

The summertime is the main time when people like to walk and hosting a sponsored walk is a great way to raise funds. You can walk around the school field, or you can choose a local nature spot to get the students out for the day.

Sponsored walks can be a way to collect sponsorships from firms as well. You can get them to pay for travel to the sponsored walk, food and drink for the day or even just to sponsor the children walking.

Event Days

A summer fete is a very popular activity during the final two terms of the academic year. Summer fetes can have lots of stalls and events put on that are hosted by the students themselves and have family, friends and others attend to buy or participate.

It is also a good way for you to promote good causes for your school.


The summertime is a great time for you to fundraise. There are lots of great opportunities and some of those are listed above. So how are you going to fundraise this summer and what are your goals? Let us know in the comments.
