Fete or a Market Day, they seem to bring in the most $$, but also takes the most effort. The Bunnings sausage sizzle is pretty good.
Our School has a lot of success selling those entertainment voucher books, mini fairs (as opposed to the bi-annual School Fete) where each class is asked to donate something ie, lollies for the lolly stall, used toys/books and the students buy from the fair with tickets that they have pre-purchased for 50c each (as opposed to the public etc), that's always quite successful.
The usual Raffles and the School fete and that sort of thing.
Fun runs can raise a huge amount of money. One of the primary schools here does an annual run around the lake and it gets a huge turn out. They run a few stalls and sausage sizzles etc. but it's pretty much all they do all year and they make around $25k. Art markets are also really popular and good for raising money.
Would a garage/ boot sale work ? Students bring in donations then hold it on the weekend like normal garage sale? That way revenue can come from outside of parents / school community
Back in the day my High School used to do heaps of car washes and they were always successful.
We made a lot of $ making a recipe book of great recipes for children. Sold it at our local visitor information centre and other places where people were happy to buy something local that supported the local school. Printed and bound it ourselves.
Silent auction is good. Have goods and people put bids in an envelope. At the end the highest bid gets the goods.
A school I worked at did a variation on a fun run. It was a 100 question quiz on a certain day. The children were sponsored for each question they got right. Lots of fun, easy ones, some hard ones and younger kids could work with older ones to get more correct answers.
Ooh...and we have the phone book delivery contract for our area. Kids and parents deliver phone books to door steps once a year and get paid per book.
