Fundraising Tips

Pin It

How is your fundraising going? There are several options out there if you feel you’ve tapped your personal contacts.

Pub Fundraiser- there are many pubs who offer charity fundraisers for $20 burger and beer (price may vary according to pub). The pub takes ½ the money and you get the other ½! This doesn’t have to be a big deal! You could just host one and take the ticket money. Sell your raffle tickets. BOOM! Done! If you want to add silent auction items you can ask local businesses for donations. Keep in mind, most businesses need some lead time but its not too late. If you want to do a 50/50 draw you must contact Michel Chiasson, however none of these extras are necessary. Keep it Simple if you are intimidated by hosting an event like this. Ask for the R2S tent/debit machine/and R2S CRV from Nasir at Surrey Honda- DO YOU KNOW THAT CAR IS THERE FOR US TO USE FOR FUNDRAISERS??? Nasir’s number 4 complaint is no one is using the car!!

Mall Fundraiser- These can be fun, but a little more work. Approach your favorite store, ask if you can set up your trainer and your bike and shake a can to raise some money. Ask what is needed as every business is different(insurance?). Ask some fellow riders/crew to come help you. Ask for the R2S tent/debit machine/and R2S CRV from Nasir at Surrey Honda- DO YOU KNOW THAT CAR IS THERE FOR US TO USE FOR FUNDRAISERS??? Nasir’s number 8 complaint is no one is using the car!!

Fundraising BBQ- Level 1 Foodsafe may be needed for this but who doesn’t like a good burger or hotdog!! Again find a mall or favorite store, then find a grocery store who will donate food to you. Again, ask riders/crew to come out and give you a hand. Ask for the R2S tent/debit machine/and R2S CRV from Nasir at Surrey Honda- DO YOU KNOW THAT CAR IS THERE FOR US TO USE FOR FUNDRAISERS??? Nasir’s number 4 complaint is no one is using the car!!

At your Work- Can you do a bake sale? You probably work with at least a couple people who love to bake? Have a bake sale and donate the money. Jeans Day- can you do a Casual day? $5 donation allows everyone to wear jeans for the day. Or funky tie day, or Hawaiian shirt day, possibilities are endless.

Get Involved!- There are 2 Polesits coming up in June that NEED volunteers on the ground. These can be as short as 4 hour shifts or all day! You get paid by the hour by how much money is raised. This is an excellent way to get money for your page. Plus they are tons of fun!!!

There are lots of ideas out there. Pick the brains of the veterans on the team if you are stuck in a fundraising rut!!
