No matter whether you are raising money for annual charity giving campaign or to promote a charity event, you will require some innovative as well as effective ideas that will help to bring charity, thereby leading towards your goal. Firstly, you have to understand that there is nothing called big charity or small charity. A charity of as less as $10 can have a major impact on the life of a needy.
Make it a point of using paper currency for a month. The change or coins that you receive should be put in a piggy bank. At the end of the month, you should donate all the coins or change to charity.
If your office policy permits than you can set up a collection jar in your office. If possible, try to combine it with sale of snacks, energy bars etc. You should donate all the profit you are getting out of it to the charity.
If you have some skills or you are an artist then you should utilize your art for making money. You should make fliers and ask for orders of the items that you are making. All the proceedings should be donated towards charity.
If you have clothes that you no longer wear or those which don’t fit you now then you should donate them.
The popularity of online selling sites has made fundraising even easier. You can sell all your stuff on eBay, which you no longer require. It may include anything from toys to books to vinyl records to paintings etc. You should log on to the site and find the current trends, list the items and start selling. All the money that you raise in this process must be donated to charity. Also, try to create and promote your own “Giving Circle”, which you should include your friends and family.
