    Dare I suggest it (I'm sure there will be backlash from this), but the Cadbury's Chocolate Drive? Always makes plenty of money for the school.

    This might be silly but my son is really ticked off that the school doesn't do a Father's Day stall. He doesn't see why there can't be things for dads like there is Mum's.

    DS school is a boys school, they do heaps of father/son things and Im not sure if they do a Father's Day stall but the mums only get 1 mother/son breakfast a year on Mother's Day!

    our school does a family camp out.

    Tents or sleeping bags in the hall ... sausage sizzle/hamburger for dinner, breaky ...

    raises a good deal of money, and the kids and families have a great time.

    Trivia Night. For parents and friends only, not children. Hire an "MC" (usually not too expensive) then have tables of 6-10, held in the school's hall/MPR. Everyone brings wine and nibblies. Costs $25 pp. Includes raffle and silent auction of goods/gifts etc donated by parents, parents' employers, or local businesses. We did this last year at my son's kindergarten, and it was SO much fun! Raised about $2,500.

    Nothing wrong with this...I'd hazard that a great majority do this. We did at kindy last year, and I am pretty sure my son's new PS does too.

    A "Subway Lunch". Local Subway delivers lunch on a specific day (using a limited order form for a 6" sub of meat/salad/cheese, options for cookie and drink of juice/water/choccy-milk too). A percentage of each order is donated to the school. Easy as minimal effort required by P&F.

    Our school does a Fathers' Day Stall, apparently.

    Check out "make cents fundraising" they do boxes of greeting cards. The cards are really great quality and people buy a box of 30 for $30, BARGAIN! They practically sell themselves and you can order them and just send back what you don't sell, or take orders and money then order the boxes. When I bought one, they had an all occasion box, birthday box and Christmas box to choose from. It was very popular and they keep about $17 per box, maybe? Maybe it was $7? Anyway, it's a great one!

    Maybe not something you'd be interested in but I'm doing a Jamberry fundraiser right now which is doing pretty well. Happy to give you some more info if you're interested.
