An Easter Egg Fundraiser That’s a Smashing Success

Easter egg fundraiser

Are you raising money for your next youth event, camp, or mission trip? Do you want to unite the church and community at a hilarious get-together? Then try this easy, fun, Easter egg fundraiser idea.

For added impact, make this fundraiser part of an Easter event or festival. Offer carnival games for younger children. Maybe offer a brunch or concessions that adults and seniors will enjoy. Also set up a booth with information about the Gospel and your church. Publicize the event and fundraiser throughout the area so everyone can join in the fun!

Easter Egg Fundraiser: The Yoke’s on You!

What you’ll need:

  • Several dozen eggs (some of which are boiled ahead of time)
  • Easter-themed prizes
  • Good-natured volunteers

Before the event, acquire a few dozen eggs. Ask for donations ahead of time to keep costs low. Ahead of time, you’ll need to hard-boil one egg out of every dozen. You’ll also need to purchase (or ask for) some simple, cheap Easter-themed prizes. Aim for one prize for each dozen of eggs.

Here’s the most important part of your Easter egg fundraiser preparation: You will need to recruit a bunch of volunteers who are good sports. The youth pastor, head pastor, and other church leaders will be perfect for this. See if other local leaders or well-known community members (coaches, principals, mayor or council members) are willing to participate as well.

How This Easter Egg Fundraiser Works

Have volunteers sit in a line of chairs. Then charge people $1 or $2 to crack an egg on a volunteer’s head.

If the egg is uncooked, the egg-cracker doesn’t win a prize. (But really, smashing the egg on the head is a win in itself!) If someone picks the hard-boiled egg, they win one of the Easter-themed prizes.

The more volunteer “victims” you have, the better! This will hopefully attract more people to take part in your Easter egg fundraiser. In fact, some people may be willing to pay for more than one chance at cracking an egg.

If you charge $2 per egg, you will raise about $20 for every dozen eggs. Of course, this depends on how much money you spend on the prizes.

Have fun! And let us know what other “fun”draisers your youth group enjoys.
