Car Wash

Find a local car wash business to sponsor your event at their site, or have a DIY car wash in a prominent parking lot where you supply the helpers, soap, water, and towels. Kids can design signs to advertise your fundraiser on main street corners. Give credit to any local sponsors on your posters or flyers, and they'll probably be glad to help your school or organization. This is a great fundraiser for teens to get involved in.

One parent said: "With a little sweat up front, your school will come away squeaky clean — 100% profits minus the cost of the simple supplies."
