Everyone has heard of a match or game or concerts where the funds raised from tickets go to charity fundraising of choice. You don’t have to be rich or famous to host a charity event – anyone can do it. These events can be hosted by both people and organizations as long as they find the place to host the game and get permission to use it, market the competition to attract donations, and prove that the proceeds were donated to the promised charity causes. There are many sports events you can host for charity. We will give you a few examples of fundraising ideas below.
Cycling Charity Events
Cycling is a popular sport globally, and it’s perfect for both young and older people. The activity is also great for families and everyone who loves the sport. Both professional cyclists and total newbies can participate. You can even attract more participants by promising a unique reward for the people finishing the race, like a bracelet, or a medal with the logo of your organization or an emblem of the cause you are fighting to raise awareness for. Keep in mind that if you want to host these types of events, you need to clear it with the local authorities to clear the streets for the time of the fundraising event and make sure people don’t get hurt. You will also need to provide water and snacks for the participants, especially if where you want to host the event is hot.
Running Charity Events
For many years now, people and organizations have raised millions of dollars from races or walks. Whether they are professional marathons or walks for those who love to do it, there have been many. If you want to create a unique race event for charity, you can think of a particular cause to which the money you get from the event. You can donate to causes like breast cancer, children’s education, and more. If you want to host this type of event, you need clearance to use the streets and other paths where the race would take place so the authorities can clear out the traffic, so people don’t get hurt.
Kids Sports Games for Charity
Hosting kids’ sports games at your local stadium is a great idea, and the tickets you sell for the attendance can be where the donation funds come from. Depending on the stadium, for example, you can host a game of:
- American Football
- Ice Hockey
The examples are so much, but we only listed the most popular ones. The kids’ families could help with event marketing and spread the word, so people know what you are fighting for. These sports charity events are mostly organized by schools to raise funds for sports gear, or scholarships, but you can raise funds for a cause or charity of your choice.
