Great Fundraising Event Ideas: Run for Charity

Most fundraising events are limited by the creativity of their ideas and are drudgery. When confronting a fundraiser, it’s often favorable to have more than one idea to create a fundraising affair that appeals to as many people as possible. Often, people associate fundraising events with selling wrapping paper door-to-door, baking hundreds of cookies and cookies, and posting leaflets for hours. But, your time is precious! A smart repository of fundraising ideas is hard to come by despite its importance to success. With that in mind, below you will find a list of great ideas for your next fundraising events.

Great Fundraising Event Idea Run for Charity

Amazing Feats: Hold a contest with your friends, family, colleagues to see who has the most amazing and crazy party trick, stunt, etc.

Bingo: Go old-school and get together with friends and family and have a bingo afternoon. Have a raffle with donated prizes.

Family Fair: This is a great popular Idea. Get the families together from around the neighborhood and sell tickets to play different games. Throw darts at balloons, have a sack race, or make up your own games.

Fashion Show: Ring in the Fundraiser with style! Think of yourself as a bit of a Fashionista? Why not grab a few friends and put on your own fashion parade. People never say no to an evening filled with fashion.

Musical Night: Got your own band, play an instrument or enjoy singing? Why not put on a concert or music recital? You can have some fun and at the same time raise funds.

Sell your Crafts: Use your artistic talent as a fundraising event, organize a craft event or donate a percentage of your proceeds.

Service Fundraising Events:

  • Dog Grooming: Everyone wants their dog to be groomed, but not everyone has the time and interest to give their dog a bath at home, and dog groomers can be high-priced. Volunteers can offer an inexpensive dog wash and charge a reasonable sum. This will certainly have many takers.
  • Mow-the-Lawn: Spend an afternoon mowing lawns in exchange for a donation to your group or Event.
  • Car Washes: With a group of friends, set up a car wash in the parking lot of your locality, religious institution, company or public area. Charge a decent price for every wash and it will be welcomed.

Spell Bee: Hold a spell-a-thon with each participant collecting donations for the number of words they spell correctly. The top winners receive donated prizes.

Style it Up: Design and sell T-shirts advertising your fundraising event’s cause.

Spa Salon: Offer to have female volunteers give manicures, pedicures, nail-arts and 5 minute massages at a Girl’s Night Out for donations.

Always take the time to plan out your events well in advance and do some exhaustive research to make sure you are getting the most out of it as you can.
