Fundraising is challenging for non-profits. But there are unique strategies nonprofits can use to make well-wishers and businesses donate money and items to them. People know that helping others is also a way of helping themselves feel good. So with the right strategies, nonprofits can fundraise to support noble causes.
Here are unique fundraising ideas for nonprofits.
Organize a Fitness Challenge – Fun Runs, Marathons, or Walkathons
Fitness challenges such as marathons, fun runs, and walkathons are great ways to raise awareness for specific health conditions and social issues. But it is also a great way to fundraise for nonprofits. Participants can always contribute to a worthy cause by participating and donating money.
Nonprofits can also sell merchandise such as branded T-shirts, capes, and more during the event to make money. In addition, when you organize a marathon, walkathon, or fun run, successful businesses like wineries and others in the area will chip in. This will be a significant step to helping your nonprofit make the event successful and reach its target.
Food fundraisers are a great way to connect with relatives, colleagues, and other community members and raise money for worthy causes. You can organize a food fundraiser at home, but arranging it in a reputable Barossa Valley hotel like ours is best. You need to organize a dinner and serve delicious meals and drinks. The food should be offered at an inflated price, a portion of the money going to the worthy cause. The guests can donate more money if they wish to.
A Trivia Night
A trivia night can also help your nonprofit raise funds. You can organize the trivia night in our club house, one of the best restaurants in Tanunda, where you can form teams, compete for prizes, and raise funds. A trivia night doesn't need too much planning, simply invite colleagues, friends, relatives and passionate people to the event and your organization will get donations in kind and cash.
Selling Raffle Tickets
Raffles are a must in fundraising. It would be best if you incorporated them into your fundraising strategy, and they will bring in more cash. The main aim is to sell as many raffles as possible. The plan should be to have quality prizes to make people purchase more raffle tickets. The good thing is that you can approach local businesses to see if they will donate gifts or sponsor your raffle. Most wineries and companies will be willing to be part of a noble cause.
