Whether there’s a local charity that’s close to your heart or perhaps your kids’ school is in need of some funds, get fundraising. Honestly, raising money is a lot more fun than you would think, especially when the whole family gets involved. Like the idea of fundraising as a family? Below are some fun fundraising ideas everyone is sure to love.
One option could be to organize some sort of ticketed event; this could be anything from a charity concert to a community fun day. It doesn’t matter what the event is, just as long as it’s fun for kids and adults alike and all the proceeds go to charity.
Or, what about hosting a scavenger hunt? This could be for kids and adults alike with prizes donated from local businesses. You could charge each person a set price to enter and could then donate all the proceeds to charity.
Another option could be to join forces with local groups like the boy scouts or girl guides and go door to door selling products. If you’re wondering where can I find a good candy fundraiser product, it’s just a case of looking online - there are hundreds of options. From fudge and cookies to lollipops and chocolate, there are various choices to choose from; there are even allergen-free options.
You and your kids could train for a sports event like a marathon, swim marathon, or triathlon together, and have a good time doing it. You could even try and get some other local families involved too.
Another option could be to plan a sports event. This could be something a little more unique than the norm, such as a golfathon, a pogo stick bouncing contest, a rollerblading race, or a local sports day where each family makes up a team.
One option could be to hold a cupcake war. You could get local people to sign up to bake a batch of cupcakes to be tasted and judged, for one person to be crowned the cupcake winner. You could do this with any food, from fudge to tacos, so it’s an option that’s worth considering.
Another way to raise money through food could be to organize a community BBQ, where you all get together to cook and eat. At the end of the night, you could ask everyone to make a small donation to the charity that you’re raising money for.
There you have it, a selection of fun fundraising ideas that are perfect for the whole family.
