Essentially this page is a place where you can boast about all your fundraising success stories, letting people know how well those fundraisers worked for you...

But it's more than that; it's a place to find inspiration from reading about other people’s success stories.

Often than not, you can find yourself struggling to believe that you can actually hold a successful fundraiser... or that you can hold a fundraiser at all (especially when you are in the middle of planning one).

But when you read through other people's successes it will help convince you that holding a rewarding fundraiser is actually doable! It will provide the inspiration needed!

But let's first look at some ideas...

5 Successful Fundraising Ideas:

Here are 5 highly successful ideas that any fundraising cause can and should use...

1. Crowdfunding / Online Donation Campaign:

On a general recommendation level, this is my most recommended fundraising method. It's simple, free to setup and has huge potential.

Read all three of the Online Donation Fundraising pages to ensure that you run this as effectively as possible.

And setup your Crowdfunding Campaign here for FREE.

2. Golf Day/Tournament:

Most sporting events will be successful if run properly... But in general Golf Days are definitely one of the most successful sporting ideas that can be used for fundraising.

There is of course a lot to organize, but there is also a huge potential of funds to be raised. Read the Golf Fundraising Ideas page to learn more!

3. Auctions:

An auction can be run as a live auction, an online auctions, an online to live auction, or as a silent auction, etc.!

It has so many possibilities and is definitely one of the most successful fundraising ideas being used across the world right now. It can also be used in conjuction with almost any other fundraising event!

My suggestion would be to run an Online Auction either on it's own or in conjunction to an Live/Silent Auction. Learn more on setting up an Online Charity Auction here.

For info on all Auctions read here.

4. Apparel Fundraising:

Whether it's an entire Apparel Store or just a T-Shirt fundraiser, Apparel Fundraising is one of the best fundraising ideas that will also raise awareness for your cause.

It's one of my all time most recommended fundraisers.

Read here about Apparel Fundraising... And here for Online Apparel Fundraising (Highly Recommended).

5. Raffles:

Just like an Auction, Raffles can be used as part of another fundraising event or can be used purely on their own...

And as long as the prizes are really great and you sell effectively, a raffle will always be successful.

Read here for some awesome Raffle Ideas.
