Fundraising ideas for Mother's Day stalls
Who can forget the excitement of the
Mother’s Day stall at primary school? Getting a few dollars from your piggy
bank, choosing your item, wrapping it up and presenting it to your mum amongst
their tray of breakfast in bed on their special day.
Mother’s Day stalls are not only a
wonderful way to commemorate your mother, but also a fantastic way to drive
school fundraising. Ideally, the entire school is your target market plus
teachers, so you do have a captive audience for your fundraising activities.
For your Mother’s Day event to be a
success, set your stall date, set a budget for gift purchases, outline your
profit expectations with the fundraising committee so you can set your selling
price for the stall items, gather your volunteers, source your gift products,
wrap your presents, and present your items at the stall – it’s really that
There are plenty of companies that
provide Mother’s Day gifts in bulk for you to source and provide for your
school fundraising stall.
By focusing on a theme or a range of
tried and tested gifts, you can provide a valuable service for your school
community with the added benefit of a great fundraising activity that is a
well-known favourite for school children, parents and educators alike.

It’s always best to ask for a catalogue
of items when you’re looking to arrange a Mother’s Day fundraising stall and
source bulk items that will last should all items not be sold at your stall. There
are literally thousands of ideas out there that can be personalised, branded or
hand painted on that are brilliant options for Mother’s Day.
Keep in mind that you’re catering for a
wide range of age groups and for younger children such as pre-schoolers a small
gift or a few dollars is perfectly suited rather than an expensive gift, the
thought really does count when it comes to Mother’s Day.
When you are looking to put on a Mother’s
Day stall, consider making the experience one to remember by setting up a
special night market experience for the children at your school or a lunchtime
market to add a little thrill to the present purchasing process – or better
still, create an event that pampers mum’s so they can enjoy the entire
experience with their child.
While presents are an excellent idea that
can be treasured forever, experiences can also be lots of fun for school
fundraisers. Ideas such as a high tea, fashion parade, brunch, pamper session
or movie night for Mother’s Day are always well received and something to
consider if you’re looking to put on an event for your school community.
Whatever your school fundraising
committee decided upon for your Mother’s Day event or stall it’s sure to be one
to remember. Always remember to market the event and get the word out to ensure
students and the school community support your event and take part in the
fundraising aspect of the festivities.
