Environmental Fundraising Ideas

There are all kinds of environmental concerns in today’s world, and for every one of them there is a group out there fundraising to raise awareness and effect a change. How can you make your environmental group’s fundraising event stand out?

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Wrentham, VA, the Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School held their first Electronics Recycling Collection Fundraiser Event and it was a huge success. In celebration of Earth Day Tri-County invited members of the community to drop off their unwanted electronics at the school for secure, environmentally safe disposal for nominal fees. In San Diego, Surfrider San Diego holds anAnnual Art Gala fundraiser. Fundraisers by other Environmental groups include fun runs, thons, green product sales, auctions, clean-up days, and tree plantings.

Give a Buck – This fundraising idea is similar 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! Read more…
