Cool Prom Fundraising Ideas

These best prom fundraising ideas will help you raise money for a perfect prom night that you and your friends will remember forever.


...before you begin your search for fundraising ideas for your prom you need to have very specific goals in mind.

Here are a few questions for you to consider. Your answers will determine which fundraising ideas are best for you and your prom fundraising team or committee.

How much money do you need to raise for your prom?

It's really important that you know this amount. With an exact number you will know what you need to do and you will know when you have reached your goal.

If you haven't decided on a theme for your prom yet and you are raising funds first, that's also okay. I still recommend that you set an exact fundraising goal before you decide which prom fundraiser idea or ideas you will choose.

Prom Fundraising Ideas

How much time do you have before your prom?

This is an important consideration. If you have an entire year you can have one small fundraising event each month. If you only have a few weeks before your prom, you may need to organize one big prom fundraiser in as short a time as possible. If you have a few months you can organize a few different fundraisers.

How much help do you have?

Do you have a big prom fundraising team or committee that is as dedicated as you are to making your prom fundraising efforts a huge success? Do you have any support from PTO or PTA parent and teacher volunteers? Do you have friends and relatives that are willing to share the time burden with you?

If you are doing this alone, it's still manageable... but you will need to choose an idea for your prom fundraiser that you can manage by yourself without adding too much stress to your schedule.

How much time can you devote to raising money for your prom?

You have other commitments that are also very important. It's crucial that you try to maintain balance in your life in the months and weeks leading up to your prom.

Dedicate a certain amount of time each day or week towards raising money for your prom. Be productive and focused during that time and then set it aside until your next block of time.
