Creative Ways To Raise Money For Charity!


Christmas is the best time of the year to be generous! We are sure there is something you would like to show your support for, be it local school that needs raise funds for classroom modernization or a local hospital that needs an extra hand.

As we start to prepare for the Christmas Holiday, many people that give donations during the year may feel it wasn’t enough. Perhaps you have been volunteering a few hours during the year and still feel you want to do a bit more, in honor of the holiday. We totally understand you! While you may be struggling with the idea of how else you could advocate for the cause you believe in, we put together a special article for you with some ideas on how you can raise money for charity.

There are lots of clever ideas you could use to raise money for someone in need or a charity you would like to show your support for. From casino night fundraisers to local lotteries or bingo nights, online campaign on your social media pages or contents with small and appealing prizes, there is an endless number of charity events you could organize.

Depending on the size of the donations you would like to gather, you could opt for one or the other. The important thing is to find the right kind of motivation in you and the rest will follow easily. Once you will start getting invested in your actions, you will soon notice other people do the same through donations and volunteering acts. Here are a few of the more interesting charity event ideas you could take into consideration if you are looking for some extra guidance.

1. Become A Peer-To-Peer Fundraiser

Peer-to-peer fundraising refers to raising funds on behalf of major nonprofit organizations and charities around the country. It is a technique that shows good results thanks to the high levels of engagement with the good cause you are trying to dedicate your attention to. Take a look at the websites of a few major charity organizations in your area and find out if they support this peer-to-peer practice and get in touch with them for more details. You could be asked to create your own fundraiser webpage on their site and get directly involved in their campaign.

2. Throw a Local “Casino Night Fundraiser”

This idea may seem very unconventional to you at first sight but stay with us. Gambling is actually a great theme for fundraising events – and when done for charity it’s completely legal! Why, because no one gambles for money at these events, no one wins or lose any money. It’s all about donations. The success behind these events is simply because people love to gamble and even more so when it’s done for a good cause. “Casino Night Fundraisers”, as these gaming related charity events often are called, are some of the most successful fundraising events all over the world! They often reach the headlines in the US as they are popular among celebrities but they are also very popular in Australia where they are called “Monte Carlo Night”. Despite the name, these events are often arranged by the Aussies as local charity events, organized by the local church, school or as corporate events. They are not only fun to join, but they also engage large numbers of participants eager to engage in the activities. People attending a casino night fundraiser can expect to gamble using fake or funny casino money and chips and be rewarded with small gifts baskets, weekend getaways, fine wine bottles or other types of rewards for ranking in the top 3 on the scoreboards at the end of the night. Give people the opportunity to lay their favorite casino games without having to actually travel to Las Vegas, Atlantic City or other cities known as being gambling havens. Bring in colored umbrella cocktails, tasty finger foods and a live band if possible and try to get a celebrity to attend. It can be someone who was born in your hometown or someone who is just willing to give you a hand and who up.

You can choose an important date in the calendar it can be a national holiday or a calendar date that is significant for your hometown and make sure you encourage a larger number of people to attend your important fundraising event. Holidays or birthdays can all amplify the effect of your event, so you might want to focus on these special days.

3. Start Your Personal Fundraiser

You could get even more involved in the process of raising funds for charity by setting up a crowdfunding campaign. It’s easy, fast and can prove to be one of the most lucrative solutions you could choose. You should get in touch with the charity you would like to show your support for and make sure you know what their needs are at the moment. They might need to gather clothes or food supplies for local shelters, money or volunteers for building jobs.

Whatever idea feels best for you, the most important thing is to do something. We should not prevent ourselves from doing something good, just because we can’t decide on exactly what to do. If your ambitions are to do something more substantial then start by setting your exact goals and know what you are aiming for. You should also establish a timeframe for your goal to turn into reality as it will keep you better motivated. Just be as realistic as you can and do not aim a lot higher than you can probably get. Mapping it out on paper will get an idea on how to act next, but don’t let it stop you from doing something right now!

Let’s make sure this Christmas is a happy holiday for everyone!
