For fundraising a couple of my friends and I have ran some successful fundraising events . Here are some suggestions:
1. Create a big event and charge for entrance. Examples: Dance, Career Fair, Game Night, Casino Night
2. Car wash
3. Partner up with local museums and restaurants
4. Have a bake sale
5. Ask local businesses for donations. Example: We asked a donut shop for donations and they have us 120 donuts for free for us to sell.
6. Professional Headshots (All you need is a camera and some photo editing skills)
Use creative techniques or ask your volunteers or friends for their ideas. Send requests to local sports figures, celebrities, authors, musicians, business leaders and others who might be well known. You never know who might respond. Be specific in what you need from them -- a quote, $50, an autographed item, etc. Online auctions are popular now, especially if you have unique items or experiences.
Use emotional pleas. When you touch someone's heart, they often touch their credit card.
With every good wish!
A personal friend runs the platform Launchgood.com
They offer the lowest fees of any of the major crowdfunding platforms, with a specific focus in the Muslim community. There’s a lot of repeat engagement by donors. You can always set up a consultation with them about your specific cause/campaign.
You can fundraise in various ways on social media. I have seen that bingo boards are a big way many organizations fundraise. Also, people like to raise through go fund me as well. You can have bake sales or have a dare board. This way the money is going to a good cause but there is also some incentive to donate,
