Fail Proof Fundraising Ideas for Your OrganizationHosting a fundraising event is a complex activity that requires creativity as well as excellent organizing skills – if you already know that you want to organize a fundraising event, but you think you can do with a little inspiration, here are a few fail-proof ideas:
- Auction – the most traditional, the most popular and the most profitable type of fundraising event. It requires almost no investment at all – you can rely on donors to provide the objects that your guests can bid on; Popular items to bid on are community activities, sports events, or services. Another popular auction item is artwork created by students and teachers. Have them participate in a Pinot's Palette art class, and then auction the artwork at a school fundraiser.
- Online donations – we use the internet for everything nowadays, so why not use it for raising funds, too? Design a campaign that reaches out efficiently to your target group and your call for donation will not be left unheard;
- Organize a charity dinner – this type of event does require you to make an investment, especially if your guests are high-profile business people. You need an elegant venue and a spectacular dinner, but if you get the meal and the restaurant right, your guests will surely be willing to pay for your effort much more than the initial costs;
- A biking event – linking healthy physical exercise to your cause is a great way to make people reach for their wallet. Start advertising your event on time to reach out to as many people as possible and don’t make registration too expensive.
