Fundraising Ideas for Schools and Charity Events!
School Events and Charity Fundraisers! Charity donation tax deduction can be lowered because of your donation.
There are so many worthy causes and possible reasons that you may need to raise funds for your School, Sports Club, Community Group or Registered Charity.
Often the hardest thing to do is rally the support and enthusiasm of the people around you to help pile up those extra pennies/cents and reach your ultimate goal!
What are you fundraising for?
The first steps to getting help… The first step is to let people know why you are fundraising, why you need their help and where all those well-earned dollars will end up (e.g. new sports equipment for your school or to a registered charity). Also confirm the amount of cash you are hoping to raise as this will help parents, relatives, friends and even corporate sponsors to understand your aims and to help you achieve them.
If you are looking for corporate sponsors it would be worthwhile putting together an action plan so that you can present your case and outline how you will include them in your advertising. While businesses are always keen to help a good cause they will also be keen to know how their company will be perceived and where their name will appear.
If you have a regular newsletter or online community, be sure to include your fundraisers in an article, blog or post and also to include the correct links to your sponsors, include their logos and information so that they can help drive people towards your goal too, plus it is great advertising and the more you can include them in your event the more support they are likely to provide.
School and Event Merchandise.
Tell everyone about your fundraising events… Make sure that you provide the correct dates and details for the event so that everyone understands how it will work, what is required and what will be achieved at the end. Also, if you have a group meeting or perhaps a school assembly this is a great time to tell everyone about your ideas and to gain the interest of all those involved. With all that said you will of course need to decide your method of fundraising and how you can make the most of it.
Personalised Fundraising Ideas
Perhaps you are having a fun-run or walkathon to raise money for a local charity, simply include your event details and your logo to create the perfect merchandise that you can sell on the day to raise some extra cash!
You could even add individual numbers to your design ideas so that each entrant gets a uniquely coded promotional product for your fundraising event – that will add a little more value on the day and make a great memento!
Fundraising for your School
You can create personalised products for your school with your crest, sports logo, class list or group photo along with your uniform colours to make a unique design that everyone will appreciate. This is a great way to raise extra money and market your school at the same time, be sure to include your school motto or mission statement to really enthuse all those around you!
Perhaps you are celebrating your centenary year, having an open day or even a series of events? You could even consider having merchandise made up for your sports day or other active events where you are split into ‘houses’ that way you can print in different colours as a way of identifying each team.
Some promotional product ideas may include;
Water bottle coolers, koozies or stubby holders, Magnets, Coasters, Cup holders, Mouse mats.
Personalised Gifts – Create your own gifts to help raise funds!
You may like to think about a specific event or occasion that is coming up such as Father’s day, Grand Final, Melbourne Cup, Independence Day, Christmas, Thanks Giving, Australia day or Easter to name but a few… You can then create the perfect gift for that someone special to suit your chosen occasion.
Whichever event you choose there are several options available in terms of what you do next;
The Hands-on Approach.
Use a blank template onto which your group or individual child can paint, draw or sketch their very own piece of art! It could be a self-portrait, hand-print, simple drawing or elaborate design. Each piece of art can then be scanned and made into your very own product – a fantastic gift idea for any occasion!
The Perfect Portrait
Do you have a collection of photographs taken at your school or club, perhaps headshots for your yearbook or action shots from a specific event? Why not use your images along with a names list to match and print a picture with an individual name and class number or group logo as a memento of the event or year!
