Alternative Fundraising Ideas

School fundraising activities conducted on School Board property during the school day will not involve food or will use only foods that meet the established nutritional standards for foods and beverages sold individually. Schools will encourage fundraising activities that promote physical and academic activity.

Make fundraisers HEALTHY and SUCCESSFUL! Try these options for successful fundraisers that promote a healthy school environment.
