Do-It-Yourself Fundraising Ideas
If you decide on a do-it-yourself fundraiser, remember that
you are on your own. You will often be starting from scratch unless one of your
volunteers has experience with your selection. However, don't try to re-invent
the wheel! Internet searches will often identify other groups who have done
similar fundraisers. Don't hesitate to contact them for advice and suggestions.
They will usually be glad to help.
Have you ever considered a
nude calendar, bakeless bake sale, don't come event, topless carwash,
50-50 raffle, potty protection insurance, cowpie bingo, kiss the pig,
kidnap the teacher, doughnut seeds, ball drop, snail race, goblin
insurance, and many more! You are only limited by your creativity!

Choosing a Fundraiser
Before you begin, it is important to decide what
type of fundraiser you want to do. Fundraisers can be divided into five basic types:
Direct Sales, Online, Order Taker, Special Events and Do-It-Yourself, although
some products and events lend themselves to more than one type. The best type of fundraiser for your group depends on many
things: The amount of money you wish to raise, the number and enthusiasm of your
volunteers, the age of your volunteers and prospective supporters, how long the
fundraiser will last, the
geographic coverage area of your fundraiser, the financial resources of your
prospective supporters, and your groups creativity.
