Fundraising Ideas

Postby jjones1333 » Fri Apr 25, 2008 02:41 am

I really would like to do a fundraiser in my town, but I don't know what to do or how to go about doing it? Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do?

Bake sales, garage sales (get your friends and family to bring their stuff over and advertise it's for charity in the paper), friends and family walk-a-thon (there are already a few people doing these in May) and that would be a great way to get your town involved.

You could do a a silent auction or raffle if you can get people to donate items to be raffled off at any of these types of fundraisers to increase the amount of money you can collect!

I'm sure others will have some great ideas too!

Pick a location for your bake sale. Perhaps a street fair, at churches/schools, somewhere where lots of people will be. Call the Home office to get some Signs and Symptom brochures or other handouts, maybe even a banner to hang up. Bake your hearts out. Advertise to all your friends and family and ask them to advertise to their friends and family, and voila! :-)

Hey Jenette:
I've notified our executive director and fund-raising coordinator of your interest and one of them will be in touch. I'm sorry to have to welcome you to our forum, but I'm glad you found us.

Hi Jenette, Kara has already offered you some good direction, and as Leslie mentioned you may also hear from our exec. dir. on some of the new FUN fundraising ideas that will be introduced for the rest of 2008. In the meantime, I will email you directly (off the forum) to share more detail on the bake sale idea you seem to be most interested in.
We do have some standard, yet easy-to-follow, guidelines and suggestions to get you going.

A BIG THANK YOU for your willness to help the cause in this way!!
