Start by exploring the Ideas on this site to see what interests you. You might be inspired to change them up to fit your special talents or resources. For instance, maybe you can’t host a dinner in your home, but you belong to a church and can whip up a lunch after Sunday services. Or, perhaps you don’t think “Traveling Flamingos” would be a big hit, but there is a huge sporting rivalry in your area and one of the teams is The Ducks… The possibilities are only limited by your creativity. If you want to do something entirely different but nothing leaps to mind, the key is to really take some time to brainstorm about what interests, talents and resources you’re working with. Browsing Pinterest and Youtube for creative ideas is always useful. Search online for companies that offer proven fundraising models (keyword search: “fundraising for kids” or “student fundraising ideas”). Time is always a challenging factor, so jump right in and get started on your fundraising journey!
