Fundraising

YADAPP Youth Staff
Bringing a team to YADAPP may require fundraising efforts if your organization or school does not have YADAPP included in the budget for the year. Here are a few fundraising ideas to help bring your team to YADAPP. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your fundraising ideas!
writing a letter

Donations

Have members of your YADAPP Team write personal letters asking for donations from the school PTA and Boosters, local businesses, and civic and professional organizations
social media icons

GoFundMe

Create a GoFundMe page to solicit online for donations. This is an opportunity to engage people on social media and then later engage with them when the team rolls out the STAN Plan.
raffle tickets

Raffle

Ask local businesses and companies to donate items to raffle off popular items including restaurant and local shop gift cards, movie tickets, movie night baskets, etc.
dog wash

Dog Wash

Host a dog wash to raise funds. Consider accepting donations or charging a specific ticket price. You could add dog walking or pet sitting as an additional service.
car wash

Car Wash

Host a car wash to raise funds. Consider accepting donations or charging a specific ticket price. Make the most of your location: choose a spot where you will get a lot of walk-up traffic.
takeout food

Spirit Night

Partner with a local restaurant to host a Spirit Night. Many restaurants will donate a percentage of that night’s earnings. Chick-fil-A, Moe’s Southwest Grill and Sweet Frog are popular options.
