Fundraising Ideas

  • Silent Auctions:
    Many local and home-based businesses may be willing to donate items and services.
  • Coin Drive
  • Bake Sales / Cook Offs
  • Restaurant Sponsored Nights:
    Many local restaurants will offer nights where they will donate a percentage of sales. You send customers on a designated night and they’ll send you a check.
  • Raffle Off Items Donated by Local Business
  • Scratchcards:
    Whirlix Design LLC offers scratchcards where each fundraiser gets one scratchcard and asks friends and family members to donate the total amount scratched off. The supporter receives a coupon sheet for discounts from local vendors. Scratchcards can be personalized with a picture of your specific playground project. This 100% profit program is the perfect way to gain funds for your playground project.  Learn more by contacting us. 
  • Sponsor a piece of playground equipment:
    Recognition is a great way to get businesses involved. Donors could sponsor a piece of equipment or have their name on a custom sign at the playground.
  • School Fair:
    A fun way to bring the community together while raising money for the playground. You can sell food, booth space and tickets for fun activities.
  • Sponsor a 5K run or fun run/walk
