From sporting teams to craft circles, fundraising is a very popular activity for clubs.
Find out how to raise funds for your club or a charity of your club’s choosing with these great club fundraising ideas.
“Bucket Collection” Fundraiser
Because you have lots of club members at your disposal, a bucket collection is an excellent way to fundraise. By placing your club members in areas of high foot-traffic, you can ask for donations from hundreds of people per hour.
Consider offering an additional service, such as bagging groceries or carrying parcels, in exchange for a donation. This is often better received than simply asking for a donation. Also, be sure to have literature on hand that will help explain what your club is doing and how the money you’re raising will help your cause.
Hold a Fundraising Party
With the help of your club members, a fundraising party can be a great way to make money for your special cause. Here are some popular party-themed fundraising ideas:
- Charity dance
- Charity dinner or wine tasting
- Coffee morning
- Fancy dress party
- Christmas or Halloween party
Be sure to plan well in advance of the date and assign tasks to each member of your club. Make sure everyone has a role in your club’s fundraising success.
Club Fundraising Events with a Theme
Working your fundraising around your club’s theme is an excellent way to draw attention to your group and your charitable cause at the same time.
There are lots of themed events a club can do to fundraise. For example, a choir or dance group could perform in the town centre in exchange for donations; also, a football club could hold a charity match or football clinic for kids and teenagers. Clubs can also knit, bake, garden or hold a quiz night to raise money.
Whatever you do, use it to bring in donations for your cause. Your fundraising success will surely follow!
