Try a new twist on a old fund raiser.
Instead of just pricing the bake sale items and selling them from a table, have an auction.
Most groups have someone with a flare for talking that will make a good autioneer.
I don't know why, but people will bid and pay large sums of money for baked goods when using this format.
I have seen $15.00 paid for a bag of home made cookies and $50.00 for an apple pie.
I have also seen people bid and win an item and then put the item back into the sale for a second trip through.
We have had several successful bake sales using this format.

Mr. Mike

This is consistently our best fundraiser each year. It usually follows a Sabbath evening vespers or some other event that causes people to find themselves away from home at suppertime.

Who wants to go home and think of something to eat on a Sabbath evening??
We serve a meal where the primary focus is not in making large amounts of money. That's just the hook that keeps them there. Of course, there's no desert with the meal; they have to buy their own :P

We've consistently brought in $1000 or more. A great fund raiser, and a lot of fun for everyone involved.

By far, this is our most successful area of fundraising. We've never tried the auction format, but it sounds interesting and doable at our church (at least, until someone decides otherwise...). I do like the idea though. Thanks :D .

I think it's great that your church gets behind fundraising. I've seen a great trend in my area that the church mentality is, we give you money in our budget, if you need more find another source. So I do try and find fundraisers that bring in money for outside the church membership. So for each fundraiser during a year, we head to a differant part of town. We can often cover most parts of town over a year and as we always pass out literature, we have covered most of the town once a year.
