Club Fundraising

Clubs are encouraged to fundraise to gain club funds. All clubs must make the Extension Office aware of their fundraiser at least one month prior to ensure additional insurance or approval is not needed. All 50/50 raffles or BINGO fundraisers must be approved by the Mills County Fair Board BEFORE the fundraiser. 

Each club should fill out a Fundraiser Request Form and return this to the Extension Office. Please see the document below for proper use of club funds and financials. If you have any questions, please call 712-624-8616.
