It's About Living Better, More Than Just Makeup, Thoughts of the Day

Fundraising with Students

Every year thousands of Student organizations across the nation work with sponsors to plan important community service projects and fundraising efforts that will be needed to support their plans.

Every year thousands of Non-Profit Organizations depend on the fundraising efforts of the community to help support their goals.  It’s a win-win.

As small children, parents begin by teaching us to share with others.  To donate to special causes and plant trees for the environment or deliver food to the shut-in neighbor.

By the time a student reaches the classroom, the education becomes more a formal avenue for sharing.

Community Service Fundraising For Students

Teachers and club sponsors, (bless them) are diligently juggling the needs of the district, the students, the parents, the community and that’s just at work!  So fundraising needs to be simple, straightforward and achievable.

It’s an unbelievable opportunity to teach students about handling money, sharing, approaching a sale, customer service, entrepreneurship, trust and teamwork. It can be such a valuable character-building opportunity that Avon is proud to support.


It’s important to have a plan. 

What’s the Lesson?

How will a fundraising event support the objective?

How can the community use the funds from this project?

HOW will we support our chosen project?  Click here for a few recommendations

How much time is required to reach the goal.  What IS the goal?

Which students will commit to the goal reaching? Which parents or sponsors are willing to assist?

Where, when and how will the fundraiser take place?

What’s the hard deadline for submission and delivery?

Who will be in charge?

Who will analyze and report the results?


At what level will the project include the students? Planning,  Neighborhood Sales, Digital Sales Team, Expediters (assemble the orders), Distributors (deliver), Monetary Team (manage the finances). Recognition Team (plan to recognize top sellers and/or teams), Marketing (get the word out to the community) Quality Assurance (help others with struggles).

Depending on the age of the student, teachers may need a parent meeting or a lesson on making change, shaking hands, greeting, selling and personal safety.  (Don’t forget PARENTS need to accompany smaller children and keep older children within sight)

For upper grade students, goal setting, planning and achieving are empowering lessons to support decision making for the future. Self awareness, presentation and safety are also corresponding lessons.

MORE THAN JUST MAKEUP is pleased to offer virtual and age appropriate introductions to the students’ fundraising project when registering for an Avon Fundraising Event.

Each project will include a Memory Jogger Activity to help students identify potential customers or locations to collect donations and sales.  An Event Planning Checklist is also available to registered organizations.

Student fundraising projects can be unbelievably successful for both the givers and receivers, with careful planning and support of a dedicated team.   Choosing a well recognized company, trusted for years in the US and abroad, that can provide professional resources, will help your fundraiser succeed.
