Good Fundraiser Ideas:

Successful Cookie Dough Fundraising:

Cookie dough fundraising has been profitable for so many groups for many, many years...

And guess what? It is still extremely successful today!

I think the reason is that many people and households love making freshly baked cookies.

So, when someone is selling cookie dough to fundraise with, there are loads of people willing to buy it and help out!

This is a brochure fundraiser where people will order and pay you for the cookie dough they want... and then will receive their cookie dough when you send the full and final order through to your supplying fundraising company.

Setup your Cookie Dough Fundraiser here.

Or you can use a Google search to find a supplier near you...

Golf Fundraising Day:

A golf day is one of the best fundraising events you could use!

You will need Golfers among your supporters for this to be worthwhile... but, it is also a way of gaining new supporters through Golfers that come to play in your day who are not supporters of your cause (YET)!

There are loads of different ways for you to raise funds during your golf day so read through all the Golf Fundraising Ideas to see which ones you could use.


8 out of every 10 households in the world burn candles.

Fundraising Cookbook -
And the Taste Test Fundraiser:

The organization cookbook fundraiser is a great way of getting members involved, raising awareness, and raising funds all at the same time. It's an enjoyable fundraiser and is easily successful!

A cookbook fundraiser will also work really well alongside a Taste Test Fundraiser, which is the perfect way to start the promotion of your organization cookbooks.

Profitable Discount Cards:

Another one of my favourites!

This is such a good fundraiser idea that I recommend every group should use it once a year. (I also recommend that every group uses the magazine fundraiser as well!)

People just love discounts and if your discount cards are for shops or services that your supporters like or want, then you've got a very exciting fundraiser on your hands!

Online Fundraiser Auctions:

(Also known as Silent Auctions)

Online auctions are really good fundraising ideas that will take some organizing and online knowledge to make successful.

They are also some of the most successful fundraising initiatives around at the moment and many organizations and individuals are raising huge funds through them.

But like I've said, to make them really rewarding you will need a bit of knowledge on how to run them properly.

What I'd suggest you do is read through the Online Auction Fundraiser page, decide whether it would be a fundraiser for your cause, and then implement the right strategies to make it a success.

If you want to receive the best advice on Auctions, Silent Auctions, and Online Auctions, I'd recommend you learn from Sherry Truhlar. She is the Auction Expert...

For example her Marketing Savvy Behind Outrageously Profitable Silent Nonprofit Auctions webinar, is brilliant.

Trivia Night Fundraiser:

This is a great fundraising event that will be loads of fun and raise some good funds!

You'll need to book a venue, setup a questionnaire pack, find and sell tickets to participants, and plan your fundraising mix.

It's not the hardest event to organize but just make sure that you plan properly.

Bracelet Fundraisers:

The last of these good fundraising ideas is bracelet fundraisers, which have become an extremely popular item for people.

It's actually more of an 'image thing' to wear a fundraising bracelet, than a 'I actually want to support a cause' thing.

But... Where there's a demand, there's a great fundraising opportunity!

So design a simple custom bracelet that still stands out and grabs peoples' attention!!!

Then make sure you promote and advertise it properly and you have a fully operational sales team that nails the sales. Jack Atwell's book will help you with both of those points.
