Let’s get into these recommended fundraising ideas for churches...
A crowdfunding campaign is simply taking donations, usually online, from a crowd of people!
It's a fantastic fundraising method!
You can setup a crowdfunding campaign as your Church or as an individual fundraising for your Church. It’s simple to set it up, and easy to promote through Social Media and other methods...
But it does need to be setup correctly and then promoted like crazy from start to finish to be successful!
And that’s why you should read all three Online Donations articles to make sure your fundraiser is super successful!
From Christian T Shirts, to Jackets, to Mugs, to Apparel Bags, etc.
Fundraising Apparel branded with your Church logo (etc.) creates a continuous fundraising opportunity and comes with a load of other benefits.
It will create sustainability to your fundraising, raise awareness for your Church or the specific cause your Church is fundraising for, and it will also develop spirit amongst your members as they buy, wear and show their support!
It’s FREE to setup, runs automatically online, and can also be used to supply to your offline apparel fundraising drives!
This is definitely one of the best fundraising ideas for churches.
A Golf Tournament is a fundraising event that I often highlight to many
causes, as it is a super successful fundraiser.
The main reason it’s so successful, is simply because it is really easy to find participants. There are millions of Golf fanatics worldwide, and Golfers love to find any excuse to be able to play a round of Golf...
And if your fundraising event has participants... You can make it profitable.
So read through the Golf Fundraising Ideas to learn how to make this great event really successful and profitable.
Your next best church fundraising event options will be Pledge Events like Walkathons, Bowl-a-thons, Read-a-thons, and even Golf-a-thons!
Because you won’t only be fundraising, but all your individual participants and teams will be also be promoting and fundraising for your Church, by taking donations and pledges for their efforts.
For example if you’re doing a Walk-a-Thon, then “Fred” can register on your Pledge event site, build himself a personalized pledge page, and promote it to all his friends, etc., getting them to pledge amounts/donations for the distance he walks...
All funds raised then go towards your Church’s fundraiser.
These church fundraising activities are a brilliant fundraiser method...
A pledge event with lots of participants can raise HUGE funds!!!
To setup a Pledge Event website I would recommend you use DoJiggy’s Pledge software.
Product sales have always been a top fundraising idea for Churches. Which products you sell though, can affect your fundraising success greatly.
Choosing the right products is all about whom your target market is and
what their likes, dislikes and tastes are.
For example: Are your supporters and potential supporters’ avid coffee lovers and drinkers?! Then a Coffee Fundraiser will be a great option to use.

They are adaptable into almost any fundraiser or event, and will also do just fine on their own. You can run them offline, and online.
And most importantly they will always raise you funds (unless you completely mess them up; which is highly unlikely).
