There are many fundraising ideas, and it might be challenging to choose the right one. However, the right choice of one can bring enough money for the cause. Here is a list of the most exciting and successful fundraising ideas.
Board Games Night
Lately, board games have been a great way to spend together with family or friends. There are board games that are suitable for all ages and different size groups. It can also be a successful way to earn some money for a cause.
You can ask some friends to help set a board game night. You can invite some neighbors, family friends, or colleagues to bring a board game each and have fun together. To earn money, start charging entrance, and even make small tournaments among different groups of players. A good idea is also to create prizes for the winners.
Football tournaments are a traditional way to raise money for any cause. Different companies and individuals have organized football events to support various causes. The most successful ones are the matches that star professional football players.
Depending on the importance of the cause, try to gain global interest, and make charitable football tournaments. Again charge entry per team and ask participants to raise some money by selling food and beverages at the match. It would be great to invite some professional football stars to ensure that the money you need will be raised.
A Dance Battle
Dance battles are also a fantastic way to earn money. Thanks to a dancing marathon the Northwestern University raised $1,2 million in 2016. So why not organizing a 24-hour dance event. People can sign up as teams, and they will be asked to pay the participation fee. This battle will be a fun way to dance off and raise money at the same time.
A Play Station Game Event
Since recently there are more and more fans of play stations, a play station game competition might be a very successful way to raise money for any cause. A video game event called ‘Desert Bus for Hope’ raised more than a million dollars.
So host a play station night for which people can sing up, and also create a fundraising page. The game night would be a fun way to play games and fundraise at the same time. You can ask some family and friends to donate. Different individual and team contests can add more fun to the event.
A Run Race
A run race is a perfect way for people to keep fit, stay healthy, and raise money for a good cause. Of course, you can get money from entry fees, and also organize peer-to-peer fundraising so participants can start raising money when they register.
To make sure that you will collect the necessary money, you can publicly say what the goal is and inform people from time to time how much has been raised and how much is left.
