Having Fun With Fundraisers For Non Profit .anizations-yo te amo


Business There are many non profit organizations in our .munities. Each organization is providing a unique service or goods that are greatly needed in our society. All of these organizations are holding fundraisers to help them pay for the goods or service they provide. All of the money needed to keep these organizations running must .e from members of the .munity who are willing to give. Let’s face it, not every one in the .munity is willing or able to give money to fundraisers held by non profit organizations. Those who are willing to give are unable to donate to all the organizations asking for their money. It a challenge to hold fundraisers that will attract people and raise the amount of money they need. People like to be entertained and will be more likely to support fundraisers that are fun and unusual. It is also important to keep the cost of the fundraisers as low as possible. After all you are trying to raise money. Here are some suggestions for fun, low cost fundraisers that may help your non profit organization attract more supporters. Spelling Bee This is a great, low cost fundraiser for non profit organizations. You can invite either children or adults to be the spellers. If you invite children you know their families will support them. If you invite adults their families and friends will .e to support them or to heckle them. Either way you are able to raise funds to meet the financial needs of your non profit organizations. Each of your spellers gathers pledges for a specific amount the supporter will donate for each word spelled correctly. For a spelling bee you will need a room, preferably with a stage for the participants, forms for participants to collect pledges, a spelling list, and a prize or a ribbon for the winner. You may have audience members who have not had the opportunity to make a pledge. Since this is a fundraiser for your non profit organization you will want to give all audience members the opportunity to fill out a pledge form before the spelling bee begins. I addition to the host you may want to have a panel of judges to help determine if a word is spelled correctly and keep track of how many words each speller spells correctly. Since this is a fundraiser for your non profit organization you may want to allow the spellers to bribe the judges in order to increase their number of "correctly spelled" words. All bribes go to the non profit organizations. It is best to have volunteers collect the money from the pledges immediately following the spelling bee. You may also want to ask volunteers to help provide refreshments. People are more likely to .e to an event when they know there will be refreshments. Dog Show This is a great, almost free, fundraiser for any non profit organization. Dogs are very loveable animals and dog owners love to show off their pets. You will need a park or large, grassy yard or a large room in a building that allows dogs. All interested dog owners sign up and pay an entry fee. Funds raised by the entry fee go to the non profit organization. In order to inspire more participation you will want to have several categories for the dogs to .pete in, including, smartest, cutest, smallest, largest, most talented, etc. A panel of judges will determine the winner. Since this is a fundraiser for a non profit .anization you may want to allow people to bribe the judges. All bribes go to the .anization. All winners receive a ribbon. Providing refreshments for the human participants is optional, however, you will want to provide treats for the four legged stars. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
