Easy fundraising ideas are a dime a dozen on the internet. Everyone seems to think you want a giant list of endless possibilities for raising money.
We bet you've probably seen a couple of sites that had massive lists of every type of fundraiser imaginable.
Fundraisers you'd never do in a million years. Even fundraisers touted as "easy fundraisers" that wouldn't even be appropriate for your team or group!
Well, we figure if you're looking for easy, you certainly don't want to spend hours researching the best fundraiser for your team or group - you just want a quick fundraiser reference guide and to be done with it!
We did all the research so you don't have to!
Below you'll find easy fundraising ideas that are perfect for your group. Ideas that really take into account how simple the fundraiser is to plan and promote, along with how much money you can raise in the shortest time.
Raising money is a necessary part of team sports and organizations, but it doesn't have to be a pain to be fun and profitable!
Our Criteria For An Easy, Profitable Fundraiser
Here are some quick rules we laid down early in our search for the perfect fundraiser for your team or organization:
The fundraiser can't be complicated
It has to truly benefit the community and make financial sense
It cannot make your supporters fat or sick
Your fundraiser must be quick to implement, get done, and get funding in the door
It should have a recurring element so you don't have to have big fundraisers once or twice a year, but have funding coming in year-round
A good fundraiser should be different, unique, and not like everyone else runs
Tired of these outdated fundraisers?
Not only are teams and groups tired of the following types of fundraisers, but community supporters are as well. This leads to a lot of effort (and not easy fundraising ideas) for less than ideal dollars.
Battle of the Bands
This is a tiny list of what baseball, softball, gymnastics and other teams and groups use to raise money. And they are all tired and take a lot of work to organize. Usually, groups have more fundraising to do, especially for expensive things like travel baseball or other travel sports, for which you need to raise thousands of dollars per player.
2 Easy, Fresh Fundraising Ideas That Are Fun and Profitable
Here are two types of fundraisers, based on our criteria above, that would fit the bill:
A laundry detergent / household cleaning supplies fundraiser
A candle fundraiser
Why are these easy fundraising ideas the easiest ways to raise money? Let's look at each one...
The Laundry Detergent Fundraiser
This one is truly easy to conduct and enables you to raise the most money for your team or group. It has all the things we like about a good fundraiser and nothing we don't.
Pure, Clean, Simple!
Everyone needs this product. Every. Single. Household!And they like getting it cheaper than in the store!
Super Easy To Run!
Repeatable, recurring income for your team or organization. Year-round fundraising at its very best!
A Healthy Alternative to Junk Food!

This is what we call the Triple Win! Good for you (the organizer) the kids or group members (easy to do) and your community (healthy and saves money). Everyone truly wins with this easy fundraising idea!
did an amazing job for our group. We originally were fundraising with another company. We went to place our order and were blindsided with all these hidden fees we were not told about before we started our fundraiser. Not only did sudz bail us out (even finding products for us they dont normally carry to fulfill our orders we needed filled) but Lori gave us one on one customer service. She guided us through every step of the ordering and delivery. They even honored the prices and quantities that the other company charged us. Great experience and we cant thank them enough.
Meghan Erb5 Stars!
This is an awesome fundraiser. We did this for our MOPS group. An easy way to make some money for your group!
With 3 kids active in sports, we have to participate in many fundraisers. Without a doubt, this is the best, and easiest, fundraiser we have ever been part of. The products are great, (we use many of them ourselves) and are easily sold, with simple renewal orders coming in often. I would definitely recommend this fundraising company for your team, school, church or other group organization looking to raise funds.
This is one of the best fundraisers around! I will not sell any product that I don't use myself. These products are high quality and sell themselves! Once you try the product you will not go back to buying it at the store - top notch and saves money! I have people contact me via text, Facebook and phone to buy once they have tried it - super quality and savings!
