Fund a Fundraiser

Fund a Fundraiser

The Idea

This GOOD Maker Challenge is open to everyone who is in the course of planning a fundraiser for their project or organization. What are the details of your unique event? Where will be it held? For how many people? How do you intend to raise as much as funds as possible...all on a shoestring budget?

The Specifics

You've started an organization that does GOOD. You have a website, Facebook page, twitter feed and have managed to build up buzz and drum up support. Now, you're ready to host a fundraiser to obtain operating funds. But the question is: how will you fund your fundraiser?
For those of us starting an organization, we are in dire need of operating support, and a great way to raise awareness and financial support is to host a successful fundraiser. However, we want to keep our budget for the fundraiser as minimal as possible.
This GOOD Maker Challenge asks for creative ideas for a fundraiser. The idea with the most votes would be awarded the $500 to host the fundraiser (with any remaining amount to be donated to the project itself).

There are a variety of organizations that may be willing to help with your start up money. I know the Free and Accepted Masons in my town are always looking for ideas to help out community. Talk to one of them and have them discuss the idea at lodge. Better yet, go to the lodge and pitch your idea.

very interesting idea! Do you think submissions should include a fundraising goal? For example, if they receive $500, should we expect them to raise 3 times more than that?

Hello, Jen Chiou, and thanks so much for your comment; having submissions include a fundraising goal is a wonderful idea, as the key for this challenge would be to provide the event organizer that "initial push" to help them get started in their awareness-raising activities. An expectation to raise at least $1,500 sounds like a great (and hopefully achievable!) goal.
