School Fundraising Ideas

School fundraising has evolved since the days when PTA members would set up a pasting table and sell homemade jams and cakes for 50 pence a piece to hungry school kids. With many councils facing hefty budget shortfalls and layoffs, teachers, parents, and students are looking at more lucrative alternatives to cake sales.

School PTA's raise more than £1 billion every year selling various products — the profits account for about 80% of the funds for such "extras" as computers, field trips, and playground equipment. But it can be tricky deciding what to sell or figuring out what will bring the greatest return to your school.

The bottom line in any fundraising drive is maximising the amount of money you can make, so it's important to not only choose something that will sell well, but to also work with a company that offers low costs with no hidden extra charges. And not forgetting quality control: If you choose a company with inferior products, you may not have as many repeat customers or earn as much money in years to come.

The Mug Man prides itself in offering the best selling range of products allowing the maximum profit for your school. Our many years of experience have enabled us to develop a range of items at affordable prices and of excellent quality and we look forard to hearing from you soon.

You will then be offered the "per piece" price on the total quantity for that order!

For example, "The School Fundraising School" orders the following:
Year 1 design on 150 Ceramic Mugs
Year 2 design on 170 Ceramic Mugs
Year 3 design on 225 Ceramic Mugs

Total Ceramic Mugs ordered is 545 and therefore would qualify for the 504+ price of £1.30 per mug!
