It’s that time of year when we find ourselves in #marathon season, when many very dedicated, athletic or just mad people raise funds for their chosen charity or cause by putting themselves through the pain barrier. Race for Life and the London Marathon are the most well-known but this method of fundraising has become hugely popular in smaller events all around the UK. At PAC Promotional Products, we supply many fundraising events with products as fundraising tools, whether they be
wristbands, collection boxes, lanyards for officials or merchandise such as mugs, pens, t-shirts and even trolley coins!
But aside from the standard fundraising techniques, we’ve been considering some alternative ways to raise money for your charity.
These are our top 4!
Get you and your volunteers together and sell vouchers for handymen services. You can mow lawns, change light bulbs, unclog drains or toilets, or paint a small room. You can sell these vouchers door-to-door or through your place of business. The elderly and single parents will especially appreciate these services.
Forget the bake-sale. Baking items are expensive. Instead, set up a hot dog station. Ask for donations of large quantities of hot dogs, buns, and condiments from local grocery stores or restaurants, or you can buy these yourself from wholesalers like Costco. Advertise your event well or set up in a space that gets a lot of foot traffic and begin selling dogs. Don’t forget to let people know what you’re raising the money for and what stores might have helped you put it together!
Offer family photos.
Get a local photographer to donate their time and equipment and have your business or church host a family photo day. Everyone can come and pay a low fee to have their picture taken and then provide prints or provide the digital files for families to get their own prints.
Create a Fundraising Shop.
A percentage of any purchases you or your friends make on Amazon, Target, Best Buy, or other online retailers will be donated to your cause. Check with each online retailer to find out what the requirements are, as well as get advice on how to really succeed.
PAC Promotional Products can provide any type of branded merchandise to sell to raise both awareness and funds. Contact us today at email@example.com or on 01379 872713
