University Fundraising Ideas

Raise Money for Your College with Custom Shirts and Hoodies

Start Your Own Fund

Getting a higher education is more important today than it has ever been in the past. Unfortunately, getting an education is also more expensive than it has ever been before.

Every day, students struggle to pay for the costs associated with going to college and university. From living expenses to textbooks to tuition, there are few things cheap about the college lifestyle.

That’s why many students launch university and college fundraisers for support. University and college fundraisers are an effective way for students to finance the costs of going to school. Fundraisers can help family and friends band together in support of a loved one.

Today, online t-shirt fundraisers provide students with an effective and efficient way to raise funds prior to going to college. An online t-shirt fundraiser is cost-effective and lets you easily spread and share your story with people around the world.

At BonfireFunds.com, we specialize in online t-shirt fundraisers. Our t-shirts are world famous for being soft, comfortable, and stylish. Furthermore, our innovative fundraising system ensures that you never have to spend a dime of money upfront: the entire process is risk-free and we send 100% of t-shirt proceeds directly to you.

These are just a few of the benefits we are proud to offer at BonfireFunds.com. Here are a few more:

Never spend a dime, never buy inventory

You don’t need to spend any money upfront or pay for hidden charges or shipping. As long as your fund sells the minimum quantity needed to print (as low as 5 shirts), we print and ship all shirts to your contributors and send the proceeds directly to you.

No upfront investment means no risk to you. If your fundraiser reaches it's minimum needed to print, you make money you can put towards college or university. If you don’t reach your minimum, then you don’t lose any money. No matter what happens, your fundraiser cannot lose money thanks to our innovative fundraising system.

Soft and comfortable t-shirts with custom designs

Have you ever designed a t-shirt before? Probably not. But that’s okay, because our free and easy online t-shirt design tool does all the hard work for you. Add images, text, designs, and colors to your t-shirt and watch your idea come to life.

We manufacture our t-shirts using soft, high-quality fabric. The t-shirts are fit with a modern design which means they’ll look fashionable on anyone who wears them. Our t-shirts come in multiple sizes and look great when worn.

Hey, you might even want to order a few t-shirts for your new friends at college.

Easily ask for support from friends, family, and anyone else online

Traditional fundraising methods can be time-consuming and inefficient. You might go door-to-door asking for funds or launch a costly event. That’s why online t-shirt fundraising is becoming more and more popular online: you can setup everything from the comfort of your office chair and spread that message to whoever will listen online.

With a personal fundraiser like university and college fundraising, your donations will likely come from family and friends. But there are plenty of philanthropists to be found online who might be interested in donating to your cause. Once you’ve launched your fundraiser, you can spread your fundraiser’s URL across the world and watch the donations pour in.

It takes only a few seconds to send an email. With online t-shirt fundraising from Bonfire, we let you take full advantage of that fact and send your fundraiser URL to whoever will listen. When you post your fundraiser information on social media, you never know who’s reading or where your support will come from.

Looking for other ways to fundraise for university? Here are a few ideas:

Leverage your unique skills: Do you play an instrument? Well, then teach kids music lessons. Are you good with computers? Sell tech support help in your community. Can you fix cars? Repair broken phone screens? Tutor students? People are always willing to pay someone who has a unique and useful skill. Take some time out of every day to freelance your skills and the money will quickly add up.

Sell your stuff: If you’re going away for college and university, then you can’t take everything with you. Sell some of your stuff that you don’t need. Whether it’s a car, bike, or TV, you get to clean up your room and raise money for college at the same time. Everyone wins!

Apply for scholarships: There are thousands of scholarships available to students across the country. Not all scholarships are reserved strictly for straight A students, community leaders, or visible minority groups – search around the internet and apply for as many as possible.

Getting a higher education can be very expensive. However, college can be one of the best times of your life. It can pave the way for a profitable and happy future career and give you the tools you need to succeed. Before you can do that, however, you’ll need to launch your university/college fundraiser online today.
