There are many great ideas for fundraisers. Your goal is to spend as little money as possible and get the most money in return. Following are 3 tried and true ideas that will bring great success.
1) Bingo. People love to gamble and when the proceeds go to charity – all the better! You can offer a small payout to each game that will easily be covered by the admittance fee. You’ll also likely want to have volunteers bring in different food, drinks and baked goods to sell to the bingo players. This is a great way to add to your returns. Make sure before you get started that you’re complying with local gambling laws.
2) Have a rummage sale. Everyone has extra stuff around their home that they’re just looking for an excuse to get rid of. It’s also true that everyone loves a good bargain! What better way to make both sides happy that hold a rummage sale? When you get all of the clothing and merchandise as donations, this is a great no-investment fund raising idea.
3) Selling coupons. One great way to make tons of money for your charity is by selling discount coupons to local businesses. All you have to do is find a few companies who are willing to honor the coupons and print up some coupon books. You may incur some cost in the printing of these books, but if you’re lucky you’ll find a local print shop who will donate their time and paper.
These 3 great ideas for fundraisers are excellent ways to get money coming in for your charity – and have a great time doing it!
