It's late January or early February, and you realize that you need to raise money for your youth ministry program. At least you have many willing (more or less) foot soldiers to help with that -- as long as you tell them what to do.

Noticed that, did you? It's up to you to decide how this fundraising goal will be met. Can't think of any good ideas? Well, before you resort to sending your kids dumpster diving after that bottle deposit coin, consider a few of these Valentine's Day Fundraising Ideas. Here, briefly described, are four options.

Host a Date Night Fundraiser

Host a special evening at your church where you offer a combined package: a romantic evening, and on-site babysitting at the Church Hall.

Sell Gift Baskets to Raise Funds

Best made to advance order, create special gift baskets for Valentine's Day giving. Be sure to price them carefully, so that you make a profit.

Offer Singing Telegram Service

Have your kids offer a singing telegram delivery service, offering Valentine's Day wishes in song.

Sell Specially Dressed Teddy Bears

Again, best made to advance order, provide a quality teddy bear dressed in costume appropriate to the occasion. Again, be sure to price the dressed bears so that you make a profit.

These ideas only scratch the surface of the theme's true potential. Valentine's Day, like many holidays, offers so many opportunities for creative and profitable fundraising, that it would be imposible for any one person to list them all.
