We love a back to school fundraiser over here at Cheddar Up HQ. Some of them are too good not to share! In honor of another new school year, we give you five exciting collections created by our Cheddar Up community — and easily replicated to celebrate the students in yours. We even included a free banner image download for each one!
Already have your fundraiser planned, but need help getting volunteers to sign up? Check out these sign up form examples for inspiration!
1. Cookie Grams
The Holman Elementary PTA in Jackson, New Jersey, sold individually-wrapped custom cookies from a local bakery as their back to school fundraiser. The $5 cookies were delivered to the school for pickup, and the PTA took home $1 of every sale.

2. Seniors – Chalk Your Parking Spot
On the eve of the first day of school, the Chesapeake High School PTSA in Pasadena, Maryland, hosted parents and students to decorate parking spots as a back to school fundraiser. Tickets, including a box of chalk, cost $22 —and the collection also solicited sponsored spots for students who might be unable to pay.
3. Yard Sign Fundraiser
Back to school means back to football too, and to celebrate the first game, the team at Fair Lawn High School in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, offered $25 yard signs that said, “You have been SACKED by the FLHS football team.” For this back to school fundraiser, donors could select a specific date to surprise a friend, or for their own yards, and signs were removed after 48 hours.
4. Birthday Fundraiser
For $25, the Old Bethpage Elementary School PTA in Old Bethpage, New York, will special deliver a box filled with a Happy Birthday certificate, snack of choice, water bottle, and surprise favors for each classmate. Orders are accepted throughout the year—at least two weeks in advance and no longer than two months.
5. Stuff-a-Lion Kit
This back to school fundraiser roars! The PTO at Elizabeth Ide School in Darien, Illinois, offered students their very own DIY mascot. Each $20 bag included a no-sew unstuffed lion, stuffing, Ide baseball shirt, birth certificate and wishing heart.
