Fundraising ideas for Father's Day stalls

Fundraising ideas for Father's Day stalls

Father’s Day is a fun experience for both child and parent, and when you’re looking to provide a broad range of options for your school community to celebrate Father’s Day, the world really is your oyster when it comes to Father’s Day gift ideas.

From stress balls to wine bottle openers, there are plenty of unique ideas for all budgets to help celebrate dad’s throughout your school community.

While you might want to pamper your mum when it comes to Mother’s Day, on your dad’s special day you can have a bit of fun and give unique items that express how much you care.

Whether you are looking to provide branded or personalised items for your school fundraiser or items that you know your school community will love, we’ve put together a list of ideas that will give you a head start on your Father’s Day stall preparation.

Forget handkerchiefs and jocks, here are some great ideas for your school’s Father’s Day fundraising event.

There is a wide range of options available, from novelty items to quality items your dad can use at work. Just remember to set a budget for your items which may increase based on the year group purchasing the items so you only source items that your school community can afford after all, kids will probably be raiding their piggy bank to purchase their gifts!

If it is at all possible, you can also have the option of a free gift wrapping station for students where they can either make their own paper from long rolls of butchers paper and donated ribbon, or you can include wrapping paper in the purchase price of your Father’s Day stall items. If you are going to provide this service, also include scissors and sticky tape for students so they can have their gift wrapped and ready to present on Father’s Day.

Father’s Day doesn’t necessarily need to be about physical gifts; you can also explore the idea of creating gift vouchers or experiences for your school community to enjoy.

Great Father’s Day experiences that can be done with children or without include:

  • Fishing competition
  • Camping night at school or in a school group with fathers
  • Sunset sailing experience
  • Whale watching or boat cruise
  • Beer taste testing at local brewery – ‘beergustation’ experience
  • Rally car driving or hot lap
  • Bridge climb
  • Donuts for Dads

Father’s Day can be a whole lot of fun for both dads and children and you can put on a special BBQ event or sausage sizzle and invite all the dads in your school community along to celebrate or hold a Father’s Day stall packed filled with great ideas to say thank you to dad’s in your school.

If you’re new to the school fundraising committee, have a look at what’s been done in the past to get an idea of the style of event your school community is open to and be sure to ask around to get an indication of support for the Father’s Day ideas your committee might be brainstorming.

To ensure the event’s success, be sure it is promoted throughout your school via email communication, social media and printed posters to guarantee that students are aware of the upcoming stall and bring along their spending money on the correct day to buy something a little special to celebrate their dad’s special day.
