At RBF, we believe that fundraising should be FUN – we have compiled a list of suggestions that might get your thoughts in gear!
Whether you sell a product that is commercially-produced or have something designed especially for your group or cause, the successful sale of any product depends, in part, on how many people will do the selling, and how good they are at selling the product. Some products you might consider selling including candy bars, tins of assorted candies, lollipops, flowers, potted plants, wreaths, decoration, coupon books (created with local businesses), wrapping paper, greeting cards, stationery, calendars collectibles, or anything you may have created especially for your group.
Holding a successful social event is often determined, in large part, by the effectiveness of the publicity of the event (which we will help you do!). Some event ideas include dances (1950’s sock hops, big band style music, holiday-themed events), dinners, wine tasting, ice cream socials chocolate-lovers feast pancake breakfast, movie events, or music events (such as Battle of the Bands or Karaoke night).
You don’t have to run marathons to raise money for a good cause! A wide variety of both competitive and non-competitive athletic events are held often to raise money. Some ideas include 5K walks, 5K runs, rollerblading, bike riding canoe or kayak paddling, team sports such as basketball or baseball, individual sports such as tennis or racquetball, or even intellectual sports such as chess or Scrabble. Also, friendly competition between two community groups is always fun! There are plenty more ideas we have – or maybe you have thought of one that you’d like to share with us!
