Fun Ways to Earn Money for Missions

Around the House

Those dust bunnies are up there, waiting for you, clinging to the fan blades. People will pay you to clean them away. Remember to have an adult show you how to safely accomplish this task.

Clean Your Room

This could be made part of your allowance package. Keep those clothes off the floor and the toys and books on the shelf. Ask for an allowance from your parents for keeping your room clean, then give God your money for missions.

Clean Out the Garbage

Got the gift of organization? Mountains of things are waiting for your gentle touch. Straighten the junk and sweep the floor, and ask your parents for BGMC offerings for doing so.

Clean the Windows and Screens

What adult on the planet has time to clean his windows? There's a big market for kids who are willing to break out the bucket and soap. Just say, "Yes, of course I do windows!"


Why not give Mom a hand in the kitchen as part of your allowance package? Plus, you'll get a head start on your career as a famous chef.

Pitch in: The Great Outdoors

There's lots of ways to earn money for missions outdoors. To begin, get permission from your parents before you use any tools or equipment. Make sure to return equipment and tools to the right location when you're done. Be careful to see that they are clean and in good or better condition as when you started using them.

Be sure you have been shown the right, safe way to use power mower equipment or electric power tools, and be sure to have proper adult supervision.

Here are some great ways to earn missions money doing outdoor chores:

  • Clean up limbs and debris
  • Edge the lawn
  • Trim the hedges
  • Mow the lawn
  • Rake and mulch leaves
  • Plant flowers and spread mulch
  • Shovel snow
  • Stack firewood
  • Sweep the driveway
  • Pick up trash around the park, church, house, etc.
  • Water the outdoor plants
  • Weed the flowerbed
  • Collect bottles or aluminum cans, and recycle them

Pets and Animals

Kids and animals go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you really love animals, why not make money doing something you enjoy. This is a great way to earn missions money! Here are some great ideas:

  • Dog walking
  • Pet sitting
  • Wash and groom pets
  • Dog training

Selling Stuff

You, too, can discover the joys of the open market and capitalism in America. People will buy just about anything. That means you can sell just about anything. If you're setting up at a certain location, be sure to check with your city or county offices about their laws and regulations about selling on the street or in public places. If you go door-to-door, never go alone; take an adult or at least another friend with you. Never go into someone's house for any reason.

REMEMBER: Make sure you have your parent's permission before you sell anything.

Here are some great things to sell:

  • Baked goods
  • Baseball cards
  • Candy bars
  • Craft items
  • Flowers
  • Have a garage sale
  • Sell soda pop or lemonade during a hot day
  • Popcorn or popcorn balls are a favorite
  • Used golf balls
