If there is one thing about fundraising events that you have to be aware of, that would be the fact that they are a great way of showing support for a cause. In some cases, upon hearing the term fundraising, we always think about those boy scouts or girl scouts who are selling popcorns, and also, cookies, every single year. But that is not the case at all as there are tons of groups and organizations out there that are using fundraising as a way to earn money like school sports and animal shelters. There are those private individuals who are holding barbecue fundraising events as a way to raise money for cancer victims, or fallen police officers and firefighters. When you purchase items or attend fundraising events, you are not only showing your support to them, but also, you are helping the organization achieve their goals in helping their cause.
Frozen pizza, raffle tickets, popcorns, cookies, candy bars, lollipops as well as rubber bracelets, are some of the most commonly used items that we see during a fundraising event. Below are some of the fun and highly acclaimed fun fundraising ideas that you can apply for the next fundraising event you will be hosting.
Among the new fun fundraising ideas that we have today is the use of fortune cookies. The truth is that there are several companies out there that manufacture fortune cookies that are selling them for as little as fifteen cents a cookie per one thousand. The fortune cookies that they are selling come in three sizes: small, medium, and large as well. For those of you who think that these fortune cookies are the same as the average Chinese take out cookies that you can get at supermarkets during holidays, you are wrong since they come in six different flavors of orange, chocolate, coconut, strawberry, lime, and raspberry as well. And also, we want you to know that the consumer can choose from the colors of orange, chocolate, yellow, red, green, blue as well as orange to match the flavor of the cookie.
The next fun fundraising idea that we want you to know of is having a chili cook off. You may not know about it but chili cook offs are fun to attend because this event will give you the chance to try out different chili’s of beef, chicken, and pork as well, while mixing with people who are talking about their taste and preferred level of hotness.
With all that being said, the most important thing that you have to do is to know the purpose of the fundraising event and who your recipients are in order for you to be clear on what you need to do.
