Drive More Event Fundraising With These Ideas

Written by Cody Beavers

Finding engaging and effective ways to encourage participants to fundraise in support of your event’s cause can sometimes be a challenge. To help you out, we’ve come up with some fundraising ideas that can suit any organization, no matter the cause, time frame, or budget.

Consider these ideas for your next event.

Scavenger Hunt Challenge

Organize a scavenger hunt and send participants running around their city while taking photos of a certain item or location. Consider offering a head start or hints in exchange for donations on the days leading up to the hunt. You can also assign bonus points for the participants who post their scavenger hunt on social media.

Get Moving

Whether you want to focus on yoga, meditation, or race training, host an afternoon where participants can donate to receive a virtual lesson from an expert. To find a qualified instructor, reach out to workout studios to see who might be interested in donating their skills for a good cause.

Go Live!

Ensure you utilize social media as a communication tool to inspire your followers to donate and participate in your event. A great way to drive this type of engagement and increase your reach is to host livestream interviews or take your viewers behind the scenes of your fundraiser. 

Fundraising efforts can drive a huge amount of engagement at a time when remote connectivity is critical. Use these fundraising ideas as a starting point, but tailor the ideas to match your fundraising goals and your specific cause.
