By Michelle

So, you’re trying to think of fundraiser ideas so you can get new computers for your charity office, buy food for the local pet shelter, or buy new playground equipment for your community. Fundraising is a fast, easy way to make money if you put enough effort into it. You can fundraise for almost anything. So get your friends together and read these fundraiser ideas that you can use to get those goodies you - and possibly the kitties and puppies at the shelter - need.

1 Good Old Bake Sale

Good Old Bake SaleThis is one of the oldest fundraiser ideas in the book. Bake sales are so simple, and that’s why they’re so effective. Who doesn’t love cupcakes and cookies? Depending on where you are, each treat can range from $1 to $5. If you’re going big, you can have a cake sale and sell them for $10 a pop.

2 Car Wash

Car WashCar washes are a great fundraiser during the warmer months of the year. If you have 20 people working at the fundraiser, you can wash several cars at a time and increase the amount of money that you are making. Just make sure that the cars are immaculate in case you want to have another car wash in the future!

3 50/50 Raffle

50/50 RaffleThe 50/50 raffle is a really great fundraiser for colleges because it gives both the cause and the fundraisers a way to make some money. Have each person donate anywhere from $1-$10 and divide it into two separate bowls. When each person makes a donation they are given a raffle ticket. When a raffle ticket is picked by the people throwing the fundraiser, the winner gets half of the money that was donated, so everybody wins!

4 Punishment Fundraiser

Punishment FundraiserThese types of fundraisers are also great when trying to attract younger people. The point is that when the cause hits a certain financial goal, one of the people running the fundraiser has to punish themselves in a way; whether it be shaving their head, or being dunked into a pool of ice water.

5 Dating Auction

Dating AuctionIn order to do this fundraiser, you need to know several attractive people who are willing to go on dates with strangers. Basically, a person stands on a stage and is auctioned off to a group of people. Whoever bids the most gets to take the person being auctioned off on a date. They win a date, and the fundraisers get to keep the money for the cause.

6 Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger HuntThis fundraiser is a really fun way to raise money. It’s quite simple. Everyone who wants to participate in the scavenger hunt must pay a fee in order to start. Whoever wins the scavenger hunt gets a prize.

7 Gift-a-gram

Gift-a-gramDepending on the holiday that is closest to the fundraiser, you can have people buy an item that will later be delivered to a person of their choice. For example. If it’s near Valentine’s Day, people can buy a rose for $2 and the rose will be delivered to their girlfriend.

Fundraising is a great way to make money for any cause. You can use fundraising to raise money for cancer research, or you can use it to raise money for a club at your school. Fundraising is a simple thing that anyone can do. The more effort you put into it, the more money you will make! What fundraising ideas do you have?
