This fun fundraiser can be held at a local movie theater or on a big screen at the school. If you hold it at the school, you can have the kids show up in pajamas, sell you own popcorn and drinks, etc. If you hold it at a theater, you should be able to negotiate special rates. National theatre chains like AMC offer special group rates and other programs. You can also rent outdoor projection equipment and host your movie night fundraiser outdoors where people can sit on the grass.

Just charge an admission fee to cover your costs and generate a profit. Make it an extra fun night by having contests related to the movie’s theme. You can even hold a raffle with donated prizes relevant to the movie theme. Another way to add to your revenue is by hosting a snack bar or getting a food truck that will donate 10 to 20% of their profits for the night with your group, club or organization. Consider holding a double feature. A double feature will guarantee more food and drink sales.

This type of fundraiser can be held monthly or once a quarter. Great for schools, clubs and sports teams! You’ll want to start your event promotion at least 1-month in advance of your first event if possible. Be sure to promote heavily on all your social media channels. Also, create posters and flyers that you can place throughout the community.
