Before I say anything, I want to acknowledge the fact that there's a couple other threads on fundraisers, but I'm looking for something a little more specific. I work for a high school and unfortunately due to administrators in another local district misusing district funds last year (i.e. buying jewlery, taking vacations, adding extensions to their houses) there are some very tight financial constraints in place this year. The school never really gave us much money in the first place, but now the funding is almost non-existant. Our equipment is well past the point where it needs replacing, but the school doesn't really seem to care because it's not athetics related (I have a bias, they dropped $2 million into astroturf and new bleechers for our crappy football team but won't spend $20 on the auditorium which rakes in ticket sales). I've been saying we need to do fundraising for a while, but now that the money flow has stopped completely, I want to do something about it. So now to the question. What are some things that people have done as fundraisers for a high school tech crew? I'm looking for ways to not only raise some decent money (I know it's not going to come all at once), but also to raise awareness to the condition of our auditorium (falling apart). This is solely to raise money for new equipment. I've thought of the usual car wash, bake sale, etc, but I'm looking for something a little different. It needs to be something that high school kids can do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!
