Dunk Tank Fundraiser Tips
Whether you’re looking to raise money for a charity or trying to raise money for the senior class, the key to a successful fundraiser is who you dunk! In order to get the most out of your fundraiser, we suggest asking public figures to volunteer, like the mayor or local TV or radio personalities. For a school, be sure to ask the principal, vice principal, and well-liked teachers or coaches. You could even dunk the guest of honor, event coordinator or organization president. Guests then pay a fee (ex. 3 Balls for $5) to try and dunk that person. Dunk Tanks are sure to draw a crowd and are a great incentive to raise money for any cause.
Dunk Tanks are also great ways to cool off at backyard party. Friends can dunk friends, kids can dunk parents, or kids can dunk their siblings. It’s guaranteed to raise the fun level of any party and a great way to keep cool.

Dunk Tank Safety Rules
Be sure to review ALL safety rules with dunk tank operator and all “dunkees” prior to use.
- Dunk Tank must always have an adult operator on duty when in use.
- When tank is going to be unattended, always drain water. NEVER LEAVE A DUNK TANK FILLED WITH WATER UNATTENDED!
- Cordon off a ‘danger zone’ in front of, to the sides of, and behind the tank. Keep people out of the zone to avoid getting hit by an errant or deflected throw. Children should never be allowed inside this ‘danger zone.’
- Never place the dunk tank on a platform or stage. (NOTE: When filled, the dunk tank weighs over 4,500 pounds.)
