This is an easy fundraising idea. All you have to do is get a large group of volunteers together and send them out into the community door to door. Their goal is to get every person to commit to at least one dollar. The group that returns with the most money can win a great prize. There are several incentives you could have for the competition. It is easy, fun, and doesn’t take you putting money into it from your organization!Source: Liz A., American Heart Association, San Luis Obispo, CA
We have included a number of do-it-yourself fundraising ideas in this section that offer a break from traditional product sales. They were developed by groups just like yours in an attempt have a little fun with their fundraiser. Some of them are tried and true while others show a lot of creativity … and even wackiness in some cases. All of them are obviously not appropriate for every group, but sometimes, with only a little modification, your might find some fund raising ideas that are perfect for your group. If you have an idea for a do-it-yourself fund raiser you are willing to share with others, please send it to us via email. Include anything and everything you would want to know if you were hearing the idea for the first time.
