ClassBrain brings you five more creative fundraising ideas for schools and organizations:
Donate or Auction a Vacation. If you havea timeshare or vacation home in a beautiful area, think about renting it out or auctioning it off, and donating the proceeds to your organization or school.
Single Church Second Collection. Do a "second collection" at your church, and earmark all collected funds for your organization.
City-wide Second Collection. If you are collecting for an organization that crosses borders of interest contact all of the local churches and see if you can arrange a "second collection" Sunday to benefit your organization.
White Elephant Sales. Hold a "white elephant auction." Everyone brings something that is unusual or odd; an ugly but interesting item for the auction.
Art Auction. Hold a school art auction, involve not just the kids but the parents. Either students or parents can donate their artwork to be auctioned. Send out notices to the local papers. These can be especially lucrative near Christmas.
