This is a reliable old standby because it works, and it's fun! You could do a classic 50/50 raffle where the winner gets half of the money raised, or a "chance ticket" prize raffle, where students and parents collect donated prizes from area business and then sell "chance tickets" that give people a shot at the prizes. Raffles work best in conjunction with another event like a school fair or sports game. With prizes donated by area businesses, you'll make a 100% profit!
One parent says: "The kids liked helping sell the tickets, and they also drew the winning tickets for the prizes. It made them feel more involved with the fundraising."
