Slime Fundraiser Ideas
A slime fundraiser is a great way to raise money for a school, church, sports group or non profit organization. There are so many different ways that slime can be incorporated into a fun filled fundraising event to make it eye catching and engaging. Slime has been hugely popular ever since slime TV shows started airing back in the early 1980s. Judging by the search term results in google and youtube and the number of slime related searches, slime is as popular today as ever. Below we have some of our favorite slime fundraiser ideas that we think you will love. The ideas vary from quick and easy to set up on a low budget fundraising ideas, to a little more extravagant fundraisers. Whichever one you choose they are all hilarious fundraisers that are guaranteed to get a lot of participation! We'd love to hear if you have more unique fundraising ideas with slime (or without slime) in the comments below!
Unique fundraising ideas
The fundraising ideas below are very unique and creative. This is perfect as unique fundraising ideas will get more attention, this should draw larger crowds, which will in turn lead to more donations and more money raised.
Slime the Youth Pastor, Teacher or Principal
Slime the youth pastor days are very popular at a large number of churches and are a great way to encourage people to raise money or to incentivize some other favorable outcome for the church. e.g. If we have this many kid's attend service this weekend you get to slime Mr___. Slime the teacher or principal days are equally popular as an incentive to motivate kid's to raise money at schools, or to encourage good behavior. Students can be set fundraising targets to meet, with classes that reach their target winning the award of dumping a bucket of slime on their teacher's head. The highest earners can be the ones that get to pour the slime. Slime the youth pastor or slime the teacher days are easy with the use of Party GOAT instant slime. This product has been specially designed to make a huge quantity of slime by simply adding water (32 gallons). Party GOAT slime is non staining, non sticky and environmentally friendly. It will easily wash off after the event and can be hosed into the grass or down suitable drains. We have heard horror stories of slime recipes at churches and schools that have resulted in clothes needing to be thrown away, or worse yet hair needing to be cut or shaved off because the participant couldn't get the slime out. You can keep things simple by using Party GOAT slime. Party GOAT slime also comes in a 4 color slime package so the victim can be slimed in multiple colors by multiple students!
Alternatives to dunk tanks you can make with slime
Dunk tanks or dunking machines have always been popular fundraising activities. But what if rather than just getting wet the volunteer was able to get covered in slime! Kid's would love it and be sure to want a turn! Below we have provided 2 simple to make dunk tank alternatives that can be set up on a super low budget (we made both these games with items we found around our house). Slime is then added in place of water to ensure that kids will be excited to participate. These games are guaranteed to get a line up of people wanting the chance to slime their youth pastor, teachers, coaches, parents or any other volunteer willing to get a little messy for a good cause! Watch the videos below to learn how to make the slime bucket target challenge or the slime pitch burst challenge!
Slime Pie Fundraiser
A slime pie fundraiser is another game that is a similar to a dunk tank but less expensive to set up. You can easily make this game yourself and will not require a large dunking machine. Contestants pay for the opportunity to throw a slime pie or mud pie at a volunteer. Again this could be a teacher, youth pastor, boss, coach, parent or friend of the school, church or organization. Mud pies can be made using the Party GOAT instant mud package and Slime Pies can be made using Party Goat Instant Slime. To set up a slime pie fundraiser simply cut a face sized hole out of a large board. We then recommend placing some sort of wire mesh across the hole so that only the slime or mud will come through (and no hard objects). Make up thick mud pies or slime pies on small paper or plastic bowls. The volunteer positions their face behind the hole and challengers pay per pie for the chance to throw a pie at the target. Slime pie challenges are a lot of fun and bound to get some laughs from participants as well as spectators. As an added activity for schools and youth groups you can paint the board around the head hole with a fun picture. Watch the video below for more information on how to make a slime pie or mud pie fundraiser.

Buy bulk slime for slime fundraisers below. We have bulk 32 gallon slime powder packages or 40 gallon slime battle packs (with 10 gallons of each of the four colors of slime). Instant Mud comes in a huge package that makes up to 60 gallons of Fundraising mud.
Slime color run Fundraiser
Have you ever participated in a color run where volunteers throw color powder at the runners as they pass by? They are a heap of fun and a great way to raise money for schools, churches and other non profits as participants pay to compete or seek sponsorships. But what if rather than being covered in color powder the runners were covered in super colorful, sloppy, and disgusting slime! This is the concept behind a slime color run! A slime color run is usually around a 5K run that has various slime stations located around the track. A different color can be set up at each station or you can combine colors. Volunteers wait at each station with huge tubs full of slime and slime blasters in hand. As runner run passed the volunteers blast them with slime from the slime guns. This is a great alternative to a color powder run that can be used on its on or in addition to color powder stations. The great thing about using slime stations as well as color powder stations is that if the runner gets slimed first, they will be wet from the slime which means the color powder will better attach itself at the next color station.

Slime Obstacle run Fundraiser
Using bulk quantities of slime you can make some pretty epic fun run obstacles to add in to a mud run or obstacle course race. As mentioned with the slime color run above, fun runs are a great way to raise money, and adding in some crazy and unique obstacles will help to ensure a huge number of participants sign up. Instant Slime and Instant Mud can be used to create huge pits that you can make your competitors get down low and crawl through as part of the challenge. In the video and picture below we added approximately 500 gallons of slime and mud to create these sloppy crawl pits. Click here for more information about setting up a mud run. We also have Bulk Jello Packages that are designed to make a huge amount of imitation Jello. It looks and feel just like real Jello but sets without any refrigeration or boiling water and will not melt in the hot sun. Imagine how excited the youth groups and kids at school will be to hear that they can compete in a fun run full of slime, mud pits and Jello! Read on to learn about about inflatable obstacles with slime and how to create a slime slide obstacle for your fun run.
Obstacle course race ideas - Slime Slide
Inflatable slides and other inflatable obstacles will become extremely challenging, messy and fun if you are able to spray them with slime. This makes them excellent additions to obstacle course races. The slime slide below can be used as an obstacle in a fun run course, or you can use it by itself for a slime slide fundraiser.
Slime slide fundraiser!
A slime slide fundraiser is where participants donate money or get sponsored to be able to take on a crazy slide. The slide can be a large slip and slide into a huge pool full of slime, jello, mud or whatever else you think is fun and unique (we recommend our products as they are super slippery, easy to set up and environmentally friendly). You can make a slide by partnering with an inflatable hire company (the equipment will get a little messy but our products are non staining and will hose off). Or buy your own inflatable, or simply making a large slide down a hill using a huge roll of black plastic and an inflatable pool. Click here for more information on the Slime Slide fundraising. The video below show a Jello Slide fundraiser using a simple plastic kid's playground slide and a giant pool of jello.
Tug of War fundraiser Over A Slime or Jello Pit
This is a simple, fun and unique fundraising idea that people of all ages will love. Have people register teams and pay a small entry fee to compete in a tug of war competition. The twist that makes this an incredibly enjoyable fundraiser is that in the centre of each tug of war rope you will position a large pool full of slime, jello or mud. The teams then compete as you normally would in a game of tug o war but the losing team in these games won't just get pulled across the line, they will get pool into a huge messy pool! You can draw up a schedule for a knock out competition or a round robin. You might even consider a different pool for each round of the competition e.g. round 1 teams get pulled into bulk slime, round 2 teams get pulled into a pool of jello, round 3 teams get pulled into a sloppy pool of mud. You could have a small prize for the winning team, or perhaps being the only team to stay clean will be reward enough as the winners pull other teams to a hilarious sloppy defeat.
Slime Game Show Fundraiser
In a similar way to the slime tug of war game above, a slime game show fundraiser is where teams or individuals pay to participate in a series of knock out slime games. This unique fundraising idea is one for all the slime game show fans that love watching people get slimed on Nickelodeon TV. This will not only be a lot of fun for the participants but also great fun for the spectators watching the games. Have teams or individuals pay to compete and/or spectate. Get creative with the slime games you create. You can watch our example video below or click here for lots of ideas on making your own slime game show.
Dunk Tank Full of Slime
Using approximately 15 bags of Party GOAT instant slime it is possible to fill an entire dunk tank will slime. This is bound to grab some attention from the crowd at a school carnival or church fundraiser, as dunkees emerge from the tank, looking like the hulk, covered head to toe in green slime!

Is slime safe?
Party GOAT slime in non toxic and biodegradable. It does not contain any harmful chemicals often found in other slime products or home made recipes. It is environmentally friendly, non sticky, non staining and easy to clean up. Our Instant Slime does not contain Borax or Boron. Many health organizations have advised parents against using or making slime with these ingredients.
Party GOAT slime is incredibly slippery so be careful so throughout the day you should sweep excess slime away from the foot traffic areas to avoid slippages and use signage to alert people to the potentially slippery surface.
