Hosting a small (or big) event might be just what your fundraising needs! From a lemonade stand to a paint nite, put on your creative hat and make it happen.
It may be obvious – but everyone loves lemonade. Set-up somewhere new though – an office lobby or outdoor space near businesses where people stop for lunch. It’s a great conversation starter too. In the colder months, coffee or hot chocolate for a cause is sure to draw attention.
It’s your birthday! Try asking for donations instead of gifts. $28 for your 28th year? You bet. Share your plan on social media, with family and friends, and even co-workers.
Break out the snacks and have a good old-fashioned game night! Play traditional games and charge an entry fee for each player. Or try a poker tournament with half of the winnings going towards your fundraising.
Host a movie night in a local park, school auditorium or your own house. Sell popcorn, homemade treats, drinks, and candy to raise money towards your commitment – don’t forget to sit out a donation bucket!
Open for Breakfast
Pancakes, waffles, eggs, and bacon – get to work early one morning and make a delicious hot breakfast for your coworkers. Ask each person that digs in to make a donation towards your fundraising efforts.
Hold your own trivia night and charge an entry fee. Half of the proceeds go to the winning team and half to your fundraising.
Sell your work of art at a local craft show or online – advertise that the money from each sale is going towards your fundraising goal.
Gather family, friends, or coworkers together for a chili, mac and cheese, or any delicious cook-off. Charge each judge an entry fee that goes towards your fundraising.
