Five Cheap & Free Fundraising Ideas To Try
Remember, each of these free fundraiser ideas can be started for little or no money out of pocket.
Think about that for a moment. Imagine, a risk free school fundraiser with no upfront costs.
What do you get when you combine exercise with your next fundraiser? You get a walk-a-thon that helps your students get in shape and helps your nonprofit raise money.
How does this work?
First, of all your students should tell everyone they are holding a walk-a-thon for their school to raise money for sports equipment or anything else you might need. Additionally, tell them they are looking for someone to sponsor them at a certain rate per lap around the school track or per mile.
Does this add up? You bet! This school earned over $25,000 to help pay for new playground equipment & school supplies.
If you have a couple of plastic buckets & some clean old rags you are in business to start this free fundraiser. Imagine collecting $10 per car on a warm spring afternoon. After enduring the winter season everyone’s car needs to be washed clean!
How does this work?
First of all, hold this on the first sunny day you have in the spring. Furthermore, you can have the students hold signs up to flag down the closest drivers. Additionally, if you plan ahead you can talk this up on social media sites like Facebook and tell everyone the time and the day.
Finally, ask your customers if they are happy with the job to check in on Facebook and tell everyone what a good job you did. Put a sign up telling your customers what you are holding this fundraising event for. You can also have a sign telling them that you accept tips too!
This is perfect for the spring when people are inclined to do some spring cleaning. You can get lots of donated goods when people are cleaning out their garage, basement or attic.
How does this work?
Spread the word by social media that you are looking for donations for your yard sale. You can also write a parent letter to send home with every student. Additionally, we believe the key to this is planning way in advance.
Finally, here is a twist on this classic.
The more people selling things the better. So you can also invite people to share in selling their own items besides yours. Tell them you will be doing all the advertising and they are invited to join you. After explaining the reason for your garage sale, invite them to contribute if they like the suggested donation of 10% of their sales for the day. So, this is a win-win for everyone. By the way, you can also sell water bottles to thirsty patrons for extra money too.
Hold a concert
This is a great way to raise money for your cause. It is really easy if you have a school band or orchestra. People always enjoy hearing good music, don’t they?
How does this work?
Go to your Facebook page and poll your fans about their favorite songs. Can your orchestra or band learn to play these? So, think about getting your audience involved by making it a sing along!
What if you don’t have a school orchestra or band? Reach out to some local starving musicians. Tell them about your goal and offer to split the funds raised. This is a win-win for the band and for your school or nonprofit group. You can also sell entry tickets and partner with a food truck to provide food and drinks for a percentage of sales. Be sure to take plenty of photos and videos to post on Facebook. If it is a hit you can do it again next year.
Imagine selling things that people love to eat like cookie dough, popcorn, pretzels, etc.
What would it be like if you had free brochures, free training, and you got to keep up to 52% on each sale? How awesome would that be?
Best of all, these fundraising programs are free with no upfront cost to you.
