Top Tips for Fundraising: Part Three
Still struggling with fundraising ideas? Well we’ve got five more tips for you this week! 2019 might seem far away but its never too late to start your fundraising.
- FAMILY-TO-FAMILY SALES. Sales of gently used kids clothes, toys and more! You could do two a year. One in the fall and one in the spring. Charge $15 for table rental or two for $25, $1 admission at the door and have items at a concession stand. Focusing more on families, instead of just a community wide rummage sale helps you hone in on a market and really get some great items!
- LOCAL BUSINESS LOGO ON THE BACK OF YOUR TRIP SHIRTS. Sell spaces for local businesses to put their add on the back of the shirt that your group will wear to YOUTH 2019.
- FLAMINGO “FLOCKING.”
The most fun way to raise some money! Buy 25 pink flamingo yard ornaments. Then for $15 let church members purchase the flock and send you to a friend’s home to “flock” the yard. Leave a sign in the yard that says it has been flocked by your youth group. It becomes a fun community game!
- GROCERY GIFT CARDS. Sell re-loadable grocery store gift cards. Ask the store to give you 5 percent of what people load onto the cards. Members can load them at the grocery store.
- Sell STOCK IN YOUR YOUTH. Make stock certificates and sell them for whatever investment the individual wants to make. Connect the youth and the person who invested in them and expect them to be in communication with each other before, during, and after the YOUTH event. After the event is done host a meal (maybe a brunch after church) for the stockholders. Have the youth tell about their experiences and put together a video.
