School Fundraising Flyers: Steps to Creating Effective Flyers
- Make your school fundraising flyer visually appealing. Use compelling imagery that shows students and participants having fun at the event.
- Capture attention with an interesting headline: Create a fun name for your event, and include an introduction explaining what are you trying to accomplish.
- Tell them about the “fun activities” that are part of the event:
- Will there be entertainment, games, food, drinks, etc?
- Do participants receive free T-shirts or goodie-bags?
- Will there be prizes for top-performing students?
- Will there be raffle tickets available for large-prize items donated by sponsors or members of the community?
- Details: This is one of the most important parts of the flyer. You need to tell participants and sponsors the “who, what, when, where, and how” of the event.
- Date, Time, & Location
- What school programs does the fundraising activity benefit?
- What will be happening at the event? Prizes, Music, Food & Drink, Etc.
- What Else? What to wear, what to bring, are there any costs?
- Contact information in case people have additional questions
- Include any relevant sponsor logos
