Fundraising Ideas

1. Plan a Day of Giving – Celebrate an important day of significance to your organization by coordinating a day of giving. The important day could be National Rescue Dog Day and as an organization that finds good homes for rescue dogs you create a day of giving on May 20th to help care for the dogs that your organization is currently sheltering.

2. Donate the Day – Donate the Day is an easy fundraiser because you pick a day of the month and ask people to make a gift in an amount that matches the numeric value of the date that you picked. For example, May 4 is Star Wars Day so ask your supporters to listen to the force and set up a monthly recurring donation in the amount of $5.40 or $54.00.

3) In Honor or In Memory of Fundraiser – In Honor Fundraisers are a way to encourage supporters of your organization to create fundraising pages in honor or in memory of a loved one or someone special. This is an especially effective fundraiser if the person that is being honored was positively impacted your organization and would be an inspiration for others to get involved. An example of an In Honor of fundraiser would be one in which an individual created a peer-to-peer fundraising page in honor of a deceased family member.

4) Day Off Pay Off – This is a fun workplace fundraiser that requires you to reach out to a business or business owner that supports your organization and enlist them into encouraging their employees to create peer-to-peer fundraising pages in support of your organization. The employer then sets a pre-determined fundraising goal and rewards employees with a vacation day when they reach their fundraising goal.

This fundraiser is a win-win for everyone involved. Your organization raises money and builds a relationship with the participating employees. The employees gain extra time off and the employer increases their support of your organization and build morale with their employees.

5) Battle of Businesses – This type of fundraiser allows your organization to benefit from some healthy competition among supporting businesses. The way that it works is that local businesses set up peer-to-peer fundraising pages and they compete against each other to see who can raise the most money in support of your organization.

The first business to reach the designated fundraising goal wins and is crowned the annual fundraising KING for your organization. Battle of Business fundraising is a great way for the participating businesses to generate some positive PR and your organization and cause get highlighted.
