Thinking about fundraising for a cause close to your heart? Incredible! We salute you. If you decide to fundraise for your chosen charity, you will soon discover that there is no greater feeling than knowing you have helped changed someone else’s life and made a positive difference in the world.
With Spring on the horizon, there’s no better time than now to start planning your warm weather fundraising events. To help you kickstart your journey, we’ve rounded up some great event ideas that are guaranteed to put fun back into fundraising this Spring.
Outdoor Movie Night
If you’ve got a big enough yard, you can host an outdoor cinema at home. Hire a projector, get some pillows for your guests to relax on and pick a few movies you know your guests will enjoy. Otherwise, you can hire or reserve a section of your public park to host the fundraiser, and this way you can bring more people in. Be sure to get approval to show the film in a public space.
Put your baking skills to the test by hosting a bake sale! With an endless selection of culinary treats to whisk and serve – from cookies, cupcakes and pies to more bespoke celebration cakes – a bake sale is a sure way to take your fundraising goals to sweet new heights.
Wine Tasting Afternoon
Hosts and hostesses, rejoice! A fun-filled afternoon in the sun with tasty finger food paired with some delicious wine will guarantee smiles and donations all round.
Nothing beats a feast in your favourite park. Ask everyone to bring a dish (potluck) or recruit a local caterer on board for something a little different.
A barbecue is a fun and affordable way to take your fundraising to delicious new heights, raise awareness of your cause and target a wider demographic.
If you and your friends love the outdoors, why not organise a camping trip with games and other activities, like kayak racing or tin can bowling.
Australians purchase around 27 kilograms of new clothing each year and then discard around 23 kilograms, which end up in landfill. Why not take your fundraising to new heights by turning your unwanted “trash” into cash by holding a weekend market stall? Research popular markets in your local area to find out which market is right for you and your items. Often you will be able to secure a stall spot online via the market’s website.
Got a garage or spacious area at home to set up shop? A garage sale is a great way to declutter and sell big-ticket items such as furniture, kitchenware and electricals. Ask friends and family to donate goods that you can sell on the day as well.
