The Simi Valley Public Library Foundation held a “Stay at Home and Read a Book” Fundraiser. The idea was for interested parties to donate to the foundation and then just quietly follow what the fundraiser’s name suggests. Usually you have to get all dressed up for a fundraiser and the restaurant that you hold it at gets a share of the money raised. With this setup, the money goes directly to the library and there isn’t so much of a hassle.
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.
