Ideas to consider for charity fundraising

For charities, one of the biggest concerns is coming up with ways to raise funds to help their specific cause. There are many different ways you can capture people’s interest and teach them about your cause, while raising money at the same time. Here are some ideas for helping your charity raise its profile and boost its income.

– Everyone enjoys relaxing at their local and entering the quiz, so why not hold your very own quiz night? Be prepared to put some organisation into it, but if you charge a small fee for tickets and ask for donations for extras such as tombolas and raffles, the money could build up.

– Regardless of where you are located in the country, you will most likely be situated near a facility that offers abseiling. Advertise to your supporters that you are hosting an abseiling event and take applications for participation. A small fee is usually included in the application to cover the costs of the abseiling, and then it is up to your supporters to gain sponsorship.

– Charities can encourage their supporters to hold bake sales on their behalf in schools, churches, workplaces and at other events. This method has been used for many years and is simple to organise, getting everyone involved and excited about your cause.

– Telephone fundraising is one of the most effective ways to not only market your charity and cause, but build meaningful relationships and bonds with your supporters. It’s useful for building funds, promoting campaigns and strengthening partnerships. Our professional telephone fundraising agency can help you with this.
