A haunted house could make a great yearbook fundraiser

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Has your yearbook staff thought about turning the halls at school into a spooky haunted house over the next couple weeks?

If not, there might still be time to do so. The staff should have a great time creating the haunted house and it’s a chance to raise some money for yearbook at the same time.

Here’s an example of a staff that’s done it – from Fairhaven High School. As the article says, Fairhaven has been doing its yearbook haunted house fundraiser for five years now and it has gotten a little more advanced each year.

What other Halloween-themed fundraising ideas has your staff tried out?
