You can host an amateur film festival that will allow different people to enter. You can have a small cost for entry and also a small cost to cast votes for a winning film. This is a great way to encourage people’s creativity and a great fundraising idea if your Non-Profit is within the creative industry. Everyone has a film camera on their phone and it will make it easier for people to engage in the fundraising competition.
Neighbourhood Street Party
This is a relatively inexpensive way to host a gathering for your next Non-Profit fundraiser. A neighbourhood street party can be organised with different market stalls, different food stations and mini-events. Funds can be raised through unique and fun stalls for different types of foods or beverages. A street party is also a great way to include people of all different ages and young families.
A Fun Run
A fun run is a great way to get people off the couch and running for a cause! A fun run allows participants to accept pledges from their own families, friends and acquaintances as they run for the pledged amounts. This is a great way to allow others to fundraise on your behalf. Organizing the event itself will require you to pick a day, time and location and also work alongside the council to be able to access and quarter off different streets. The fun run is however worth it because organizing a fun run is relatively inexpensive and allows people of all ages to participate.
A talent show is a great way to get people singing, dancing, juggling, performing, you name it! Hosting a ticketed fundraising talent show will allow people of all ages to not only watch an amazing show but also participate if they have a talent and it can be argued that everyone has a talent! You can organize the event within a time frame and also make it a competition with an audience vote!
Aside from the normal ways to fundraise for a Non-Profit, there are numerous alternatives that are unique and will allow your Non-Proft to raise the funds needed. Venturing away from the normal ways to fundraise might create a new and lucrative opportunity for your Non-Profit.
