The Scotus Central Catholic Church in Columbus, Nebraska, held a Bid-A-Bag fund silent auction raiser. Alumni and friends of Scotus were asked to give donations to the event. In all, they received 80 purses from across the country from states like Arizona, California, Washington and New York, and even a few from other countries like Japan and China. The purses were of every color, every size and every style.
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.
