Creative Ways of Raising Funds For a Cause

Raising funds would somewhat rude if you are just going to simply ask an amount of money directly from the potential donor. If that is the case, then you are not raising funds at all but soliciting. Although the latter is also one type of fund raising ideas, these days asking a person some amount of money even for a good cause but not having something in return would be difficult. However, through the use of unique and creative fundraising software and ideas, acquiring the target budget would become easy. After its success, the software will help promote transparency and will ensures proper utilization of funds as well.

Below are some of the unique fund raising ideas:

Fun Run – organizers of fun run activities can raise funds from the registration of the participants and at the same time promote health. Who would not want to participate in a health-promoting activity?

Variety Show – members of the group that who will need the funds can showcase their talents to entertain the viewers in exchange of viewing tickets.

Benefit meal – it can be dinner, lunch or whatever meal gathering of your preference. Part of the payment for the food will be set aside for a cause.

Sports Activities – part of the proceeds of the tickets sales or all of it to watch games will be gathered for the use of a certain purposeful activity.

Art Work and Exhibits – some artists will gather all their creations and sell it to interested clients and the proceeds will be used to fund a certain event or donated to a beneficiary.

All of these and more are just few of the creative ways of fund raising activities. Benefactors will be more inspired to donate or avail such activities because aside from the mere giving, they could also get something in return. In short, the money was not gathered for nothing.

The Best Campaign

I don’t understand why our parish priest had to park the car, which is the grand prize for the fund raising, in the altar. I understand the parish needs fund for the church’s improvement but are there no any other ways to campaign for the said fund raising? Instead of violating the altar, why not have posters printed with the prizes and mechanics and post them not only outside the church but to other public places as well so that people can see them. Poster printing is highly powerful and effective means of promotion that is proven to give positive results. I am sure the parish can raise more than enough for the church’s improvement through colorful posters because that is the best campaign.

I got news this morning that our parish priest was transferred to another parish. I am grateful and somehow relieved. We haven’t visited the church since the said incident. Now, my family can hear mass again regularly.
