Easy Fundraising Ideas
Matching Gifts: Double your money with matching gifts! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees.
Network: Are you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social networking site? Use it to let your friends and family across the country know about your fundraising efforts for the FPS Walk! Include links to your walk webpage.
Dress Down Days: Ask your employer or school if they will allow employees or students to dress down or wear their favorite sports jersey or hat on Fridays for a $5-$10 donation.
Concession Sales with your Favorite Team! Did you know that professional sports teams often let volunteer groups run a concession stand at a home game as a fundraiser? Contact your professional home team and then get a group of friends together for a great time at the game – for a worthy cause!
Corporate Sponsor: Identify one corporate sponsor that you can ask for a large donation. Offer to add their logo to your team’s walk t-shirt for advertising at the FPS Walk!
Dine and Donate: Restaurant night fundraisers are a simple way to raise money for your team. Events can be run by a few volunteers, and they don’t require a big investment of time or money. There are numerous restaurants that provide these opportunities; Applebee’s, Bruster’s, California Pizza Kitchen, Chipotle and Panera to name a few.
