This fundraising idea is similar to the to the sales they have in stores during different holidays such as St. Patrick’s Day where organizations will sell paper shamrocks for a dollar. You print the donor’s name on the shamrock and it’s hung up in the store for all to see! We chose to use paper houses with our logo on them and asked local businesses to sell them for us. Since we are a homeless shelter the houses were a big hit! We gave each business about 50 houses to start, a tally sheet, and a money bag. We collected at the end of each week although the fund raiser continued on for the whole month. We also did advertising in the local newspapers and radio.Source: Galilee House
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.
