Do you know of a family who is in need of support for tuition, adoption, medical funds, or even missions support? Here are some key ways to raise money for families in need.
First, create a goal and vision for your fundraiser. How much would you like to raise? Do you have a catchy phrase that sums up your fundraiser?
Second, choose how you would like to raise your funds. You could have a local event and partner it with a free online fundraising site.
- Take on a Challenge. Maybe run 5 miles, bike 30 miles, eat 20 doughnuts in 5 minutes.. Something that you could get sponsored to do.
- Create a Video. Make a video for you cause and charge to view it, all your proceeds go to your cause.
- Fundraising Donation Dinner. Make a dinner for your cause and charge a fee to join the dinner, you could even have a raffle at your dinner to raise extra funds.
- Do Something Crazy. Set up a time limit on your cause, if you raise your funds in that time limit everyone who donated gets to watch you do something crazy like go skydiving, or jump into really cold water. (Do at your own risk, safety first!)
Once you have created a fundraiser event, set up a way for people to easily donate to your cause. There are many online fundraiser web pages that provide a platform for you to raise money for families in need. Checkout Firstgiving.com, Gogetfunding.com, or YouCaring.com. Make sure that you keep your page up to date, your supporters can follow you daily from these sites.
