I found a list of "top 10 fundraisers that work".

I'm a member of a national organization for moms. Our local chapter has made a LOT of money with a bi-annual garage sale type event. They rent out a huge building at a local park and sell space to anyone who wants to get rid of their kids' items. The group sets up a table full of donated kids' items, so anything sold from that table profits the group. They also have a bake sale table, which is always a big hit. Admission is charged at the door. I think it's $5 per person, and there's always a huge line of ladies (mostly) waiting to get in. Until I joined, I had no idea how much money they made. Profit usually falls anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000. Gently used kids stuff is really big in this area!
