Choosing The Best Non Profit Fundraisers is More Important Than Ever!

Best non-profit fundraising ideas

These days, in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, most of your volunteer’s time and resources are already tapped, playing teacher with their children, trying to keep their personal finances in order, and quite possibly helping out on the front line. So, if you’re looking to implement new fundraisers this year, more than ever, it will be crucial to choose the right fundraising ideas for your non-profit.

Flowers have long been associated with life and hope, making them a symbolic fundraiser for so many charities. Flower bulb fundraisers are also a perfect fundraiser for environmentally conscious groups like, Scouts and Girl Guides. Recently, demand for flowers has been greater because people are spending more time at home.

What’s more relaxing than tending to and beautifying your own garden?

Getting started is free and easy. Just order one order-taker per volunteer. You can set up a booth at a special event or have your volunteers ask family, friends and neighbors to make a purchase.

When your non-profit has committed volunteers and a high goal, JustFundraising®’s Scratch Cards are your best choice! It’s simple. Order one scratch card per volunteer. Ask your supporters to scratch 2 or more circles to reveal their donation. Often, they’ll donate even more! You reward your supporters with a sheet of valuable coupon offers, as a Thank-You.

Our Scratch Cards are customized with your non-profit’s name on the front and are easy to carry around. They raise $100 each, with a cost of only $20. Right now, we are offering 20% free cards so your non-profit can reach 100% profit!

Because scratch cards are a fun, interactive, face-to-face fundraiser, it also gives you the opportunity to discuss and spread the word about your charity with your supporters.

Who doesn’t love lollipops? Your non-profit has a variety of lollipops you can choose from to sell at your next event. Our Yummy Lix are colorful and offered in a variety of flavors. A couple of my favorite flavors are watermelon and banana split. We also have Yummy Hearts which could be an ideal theme for your charity.

Selling them for only $1 each means many supporters will want to buy them by the handful. In fact, many charity fundraisers will package the pops in sets of 5 or 10 and generate a lot more sales. Your group can set up a booth or sell them to guests at special events.

The minimum order is only one master case which contains 640 lollipops, comprising 8 bags of 80 pops each. Your non-profit enjoys free shipping and your groups can make up to 62% profit.

DIY Non-Profit Fundraising Ideas and Event Fundraisers

DIY non-profit fundraising ideas

1) Color Run

Promote a healthy lifestyle while raising money for your non-profit cause. A color run is no ordinary race. Participants are given packets of colored powder to add a little color and excitement to the run. Color packets can be made available to the spectators for an extra fee so they can join in the fun, too.

2) Custom T-shirts

Who doesn’t love a new fresh t-shirt featuring a non-profit cause that’s important to them? Have your t-shirt designed with the logo and slogan of your cause or non-profit event. Sell them using a physical order-taker, or use an online platform to share and generate sales. You can also pre-print them and then set-up a booth at your next event to sell them!

3) Crowdfunding

Use the power of social media to raise funds for your organization. There are tons of crowdfunding platforms such as Gofundme or Fundly that make the whole process as easy as possible.

All you need to do is set-up a crowdfunding page, share the link with your group members, and ask them to share it with their family and friends. Set a goal that you’re trying to raise, and be sure to give a good description of your fundraiser so people know where their money is going.

Crowdfunding sites generally take a small percentage of what you raise, but the rest will go straight to your cause.

4) Charity Auctions

Consider hosting an auction and inviting your community to bid on different goods and services. Your organization can gather donations from it’s members, family, friends and local businesses to include in the auction.

Your auction can be done at an organized event, or even online to extend your reach. Local businesses are usually more than happy to donate some sort of prize for auctions such as gift cards or coupons since it will increase their visibility in the community.

5) Homemade Film Fundraiser

This concept requires some dedicated staff, as well as willing, creative participants. Hold a mini film festival with your organization and invite the public to contribute. Charge a small fee for anyone that would like to have their short film included in the festival, and have everyone cast their ballots for their favorite film after the screening.

Filming a video is easier than ever, since anyone with a phone can be a director. You can use social media to promote the event and also post the submissions after your event. Offer a cash prize for the winning short film to encourage more participation.

Use social media to organize and promote your fundraiser. Color Runs have quickly become one of the most popular fundraiser events so don’t be surprised if the turnout is even greater than you expected!

6) Car Wash For a Cause

Who doesn’t love a clean and sparkling car? A car wash is a simple and effective fundraiser that requires little to no up-front cost to organize. All you need is a few volunteers and the basic cleaning supplies and you’re ready to go!

This can be a great team building exercise. Depending on your group size, you can divide members into teams and they can compete for the most customers or fastest clean time.

dog walking fundraiser

6) Dog Walking for Animal Rescue

This is a favorite fundraiser for animal rescue and animal shelter fundraisers. Many dog owners don’t have the free time to walk their dog as much as they would like. This is a great way to give them a helping hand by having your group members volunteer to walk their dog for them.

This fundraiser is so simple since you don’t need any up-front money or materials. All you need is some volunteers that have some time to spare, and maybe a few dog treats. Your supporters will appreciate the gesture and will be more than happy to donate money to your cause. This can easily become a continual fundraiser and your dog walkers can donate all the funds to your cause.

7) Car Wash For a Cause

8) BBQ Lunches

Every organization can find a few members who are spectacular BBQers.. Have them help out and host a delicious meal of BBQ chicken and ribs, hamburgers, sausages and other BBQ delights! Create a menu with a main dish and a couple sides and have your group members whip up some lunches and individually box them to sell.

Be sure to promote your fundraiser online and throughout your community a few weeks before. Post your menu and preparation pictures to get people’s mouths watering and drum up sales.

9) Holiday Gift Wrapping for Charity

The holidays are always a great time to raise money. Everyone is getting into the giving spirit and there are tons of opportunities to offer a service that will be useful during such a busy time.

All you need is a few tables and the basic gift wrapping tools and you’re ready to go! Locate the highest traffic stores that are popular for gift buying and ask permission to set-up a few tables for your gift-wrapping event. Coordinate your volunteers to ensure you’re always well staffed especially during peak hours. You can ask for a specific price or request that they donate whatever they feel comfortable donating but with a minimum fee.

10) Sporting Event Watching Parties

Obviously sport event gatherings won’t be happening anytime before 2021, but when everything is back to normal, it’s a fun and profitable money-maker. Watching the big game is always more fun with a crowd, so why not invite your community to watch along with your group?

Designate a location to host the event. You can charge a small entry fee or request a small donation upon entry. Sell snack favorites like nachos or chicken wings to make some extra profit, and run a 50/50 raffle to raise even more!
