As the Missions Team chair for my church, I say speak to different churches. I agree with quiltmom04. We had a young woman from our church raise over $18,000 in just 6 months for her around the world 11 countries in 11 months mission trip. Some restaurants, like Chick-fil-a will give you a portion of what they sell on a certain nite. You just have all your friends show up on that nite. Her last fundraiser was if she would shave her head or not. You had to pay her one way or the other. We also had an auction of donated things at church. Her family supplied hotdogs, chips, fruit and things like that for lunch, donations accepted. There are lots of ways to raise money for missions.
