School Fundraising Ideas

If your child is in school or extracurricular activities, we're pretty sure you've purchased a case or two of chocolates for fundraising.  With school and activities back in session, we're looking at various ways to fundraise.  We've also asked our KinderBuzz community on Facebook their favourite fundraising activities for their child's school or extracurricular organization, and  here are some suggestions.







The Kelowna based business Just Be Friends....For every act of friendship your school achieves, you’ll earn points.  At the end of the campaign, JBF will turn those points into rewards, chosen by your school, for your school.  Million Acts of Friendship rewards healthy social behaviours and acts of friendship with special weekly badges for students and much needed resources for schools.  Students make a wish list of all the items your school needs, and send it to JBF.  Students keep track of their acts of friendship and the school receives approved items from the wishlist.   



Boston pizza has a few different options for raising money for your school or organization:

  • School Earnback  - Enroll in the School Earnback program at your local Boston Pizza. Then simply collect receipts from families who have dined at BP  and send them to your local Boston Pizza. A portion of the total goes back to the school in cash.

  • Celebrity Server - Any staff member or student can volunteer to work alongside a server at your local Boston Pizza. Simply schedule a night with your local Boston Pizza, invite your friends and family to come dine, and a percentage of the sales will go back to your school.

  • Team Headquarters - Enroll in the Team Headquarters program at your local Boston Pizza. Then have your team collect Boston Pizza receipts from families and friends who have dined at BP over the course of the season. A portion of the total goes back to your team.
