Fundraising is an essential to help defray cost of recital costumes.  The ideas listed below are suited for all organizations

  • Sell dance picture frames - These can be sold at the studio.  Coordinate the sale with the delivery of recital pictures.

 

  • Have a Dance-A-Thon  - This fundraiser can be adjusted to any activity.  Simply have your dancers get sponsors.  Set a date for the event.  Consider adding other fun events at the studio.  Solicit parents and/or local businesses to donate food items/drinks that can be sold at the event.

 

  • Sell dance items - It can be as simple as magnets, or as elaborate as tee shirts, sweat shirts, sweat pants and dance bags.  Many times these items are hard to find and if the child participates in dance they will love to wear or own the items.

 

  • Sell meal tickets for a bag lunch -  Work out a discount with a local business to provide you with hoagies. Simply add chips and a drink and you have your lunch.  Sell tickets in advance and set up a delivery date.

 

  • Have silent auction with a dance theme - Items can include tickets to the theatre, dinners at local restaurants, services by the dancers such as shoveling, car wash, music/dance lessons, tutors, and services by parents based on their profession.

 

  • Organize a spaghetti dinner -  Have the dancers invite family and friends. 

 

  • Have a Car Wash - It is always a successful fundraiser providing it is at a good location and sufficiently advertised.  Make sure flyers are distributed in advance and posters with the price and date are planted strategically around the location at least a week prior to the event.  Make sure you designate jobs such as washer, dryer, money man prior to the event to avoid chaos.

 

  • Organize a bake sale - This can be done right at the studio and it is always successful.  Especially if coffee/tea/hot chocolate is included for the parents waiting for their children.

 

  • Dance basket raffle -  Create several baskets containing everything you would ever want or needed for dance.  Be sure to include gift certificates from you local dance stores. Sell raffle tickets at the studio to parents as they pick up their children.  Be sure to have the baskets on display for all to see.

 

  • Have a restaurant night -  Many local restaurants will give you a percentage of sales on a designated night for all sales that your organization brings to their business.  Most of the time this will occur on a weeknight.  Be sure to advertise in advance and if the restaurant has take-out try and have that included in your deal.
