10 Easy Fundraising Ideas

Are there really "Easy Fundraising Ideas" out there you ask?

Absolutely... There will still be work and planning involved, but quite simply these 10 ideas are the easiest fundraisers you can use.

What's the Fundraising Potential? Can these Ideas Raise Enough Funds? Yes...

It obviously varies though...

Some of the ideas have huge funding potential.

Whilst others will help you raise an extra few hundred or thousand dollars, quickly and easily.

And some of the ideas are just incredibly brilliant!

Like idea number two for example...

It's a combination of 2 great fundraising concepts that makes for far easier fundraising. And big funding potential.

Causes are currently getting great results with that idea, so definitely check it out.

Let's get going...

Are there really "Easy Fundraising Ideas" out there? Absolutely! They will still take work & planning, but these 10 ideas are the easiest you can use...

Easy Fundraising Ideas:

1. The 50/50 Raffle:

This is without a doubt the easiest fundraiser to setup and do. You don't need to find or buy prizes, or stock and sell products.

Simply sell raffle tickets and split the proceeds 50/50 with the winner/s. You get 50% of the sales and the winner get's the other 50.

2. Online T Shirt Fundraiser:

T Shirt Fundraisers have always been a great fundraiser, but are generally a big hassle to organize - You've got printing, stocking, and shipping hassles etc to consider.

But thankfully now you can do it without any of those hassles...

BonfireFunds is a crowdfunding platform that lets you create a custom fundraising page on their platform for free, and sell custom "cause" T Shirts from it.

(You can also take direct donations from that page.)

They then handle everything:

Payments, donations, T shirt printing, shipping, and pay you your funds directly into your PayPal account.

It's essentially Hassle-Free and Risk-Free fundraising.

But there are 3 things you need to do well for success...

  1. Create AWESOME custom T Shirts. Your designs or logos must be really appealing to your potential supporters.
  2. Write a great fundraising appeal/pitch. Don't just write, "We're fundraising for ___." Actually get in to depth as to why your cause is awesome/important, and connect your readers emotionally to it.

    It would highly recommended to have a video pitch as well!
  3. And finally, PROMOTE - PROMOTE - PROMOTE. The more eyes on your fundraiser, the more T Shirts you'll sell and funds you'll raise.

3. Lollipops:

If you're looking for an easy fundraising product to sell, then Lollipops are the one to go for. They are cheap and highly popular. Which makes it super easy for your sales team to make those sales!

Also grab a FREE fundraising product guide to see what is currently popular and successful.

4. Wine Pull Raffle:

A great idea for events. And one which is really simple to pull off.

Wrap up a mixture of wines to hide there values. Obviously look to get the bottles of wine sponsored. Then sell "wine pull" tickets that allow people to pull a bottle out of the selection of wrapped bottles.

They may get an a normal wine... Or they may get a really awesome and expensive bottle. That's the raffle. But everyone at least still walks away with something.

It's a great fundraiser!

5. Online Donation Campaign - Crowdfunding:

One of my favorite fundraisers of all time. It's what the T Shirt Fundraiser up above is based on.

Simple to setup. Simple to promote. It holds phenomenal fundraising potential and can really go viral if done effectively.

Once again, you must do a few things brilliantly...

  1. Write a killer fundraising pitch/appeal. Should include a video! Stats show that videos greatly increase Campaign Successes.
  2. And once again... PROMOTE - PROMOTE - PROMOTE.

You MUST also read and download (for free) the 10 step approach to Crowdfunding Success here.

Then create your campaign page here... But make sure you read as much about how to be successful as you can.

6. The Fly Trap:

This is a super fun idea that is suitable for community organizations. Like schools, churches, or sports clubs, etc.

Have a high profile person, like the school principal or a top sportsman, volunteer to be "stuck-to-the-wall". Then sell lengths of duck tape to pupils or members, who use them to stick the volunteer to the wall.

Pretty easy... And loads of fun!
