I need some fundraising ideas! - September 24th 2009, 10:00 PM

I really want to raise some money for the hospital ward I was on for a while last year. I can't do anything with my family really because my parents have just brought a new house and they are also busy raising money for the special care baby unit where my neice was admitted after she was born, so all in all they have no time to help me. I have a few friends willing to help, i.e one or 2, so no massive projects. The people on this ward were amazing and I really want to raise some money for new equiptment. Please give as many suggestions as possible, thanks.

Do you and your friends have a talent? You could put on a talent show or a concert of some sort. An art show? A show in general? To get the equipment for the concert, maybe your school has materials or you could rent some from elsewhere? I know you said you didn't have much money but I've never started a fundraiser myself, so I'm just throwing things out there.

Sell lemonade? Wash cars?

Sell pastries or baked goods in the neighborhood? Ask your school principal if you can have permission to sell things in your school, or put on actual fundraiser event?

Yard sales, bake sales, and basket bingo! That is how my brother funded a trip to NZ his freshman year of high school.

For something like the hospital it's pretty easy to go door to door and ask for donations. Just be open and friendly. Tell them exactly what the money will be going to and really give it. You could offer status reports on what the money helped to do so that they can really see it.

It's great what you're doing for the hospital.
Good luck.

I think all the things that have already been suggested are really great ideas. You could also do things such as chores for others (gardening/car washing/dog walking)/selling things/organising discos. I know that bag packing at local shops or supermarkets is often a good idea too and can raise quite a lot of money.

If you're good at sports... Do a sponsored run or ride, Even if your not training for something like a 10km run is good or you and you can raise quite a bit

I know a liiiitle about running, and am hoping to do the London 10K next year, but local races, and other events will do just as well for sponsoring



How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.

We are now planning to all dress up ridiculously (I'm going to be a Penguin) for 24 hours, and also not make any communication other that something written on 5 cards, and get sponsors as well as getting donations from around town and college. We are also going to have a cake sale at college, but not for quite a while as this takes a lot of organising.

Annie,

What I do is cookie dough sales. You get a bunch of plastic spoons and a bucket of that pre-made cookie dough (it's safe to eat that), and charge $1 for a spoon full of cookie dough - it's a best-seller.

peace and love
