Fundraising Ideas That Work

Fundraising is an important aspect of nearly all community groups and organisations. Many local sporting teams use fundraising as the primary way to earn money, to pay for uniforms, to pay for coaches, and to pay for training facilities. Raising money to put into the club is a good way to reduce fees for the participants, and make it more accessible for them to play the sport they love. Additionally, it helps teach them responsbility and makes them feel like they are contributing to the clubs success, both on and off the field.

When deciding on the type of fundraising you want your association to partake in, it’s important to consider a number of factors. Firstly, is it something that the members will feel comfortable doing, and will they be able to achieve their goals, both in carrying out the fundraising ideas effectively and generating enough money for the cause. If you are looking to make fundraising an ongoing income stream for your organisation, then we have got the perfect solution for you.

Need other club fundraising ideas?

Sometimes it can be difficult to see the “fun” side of fundraising, and come up with an idea for your club or organisation that is enjoyable and helps you make money. Generally, a club is an association of people with a specific interest so it can be good to do a club fundraiser that utilises your common interests. For example if you are a car enthusiasts club, you might want to do a car wash. If you’re a cycling group, you may want to organise a charity ride, or race day.

The important thing is to do something that everyone will be passionate about. That way, the whole team who is striving to make the money will be giving it their all and increasing your chances of success. Other “fun” fundraising ideas include a karaoke night, slave auction, dress up night, garage sale, fun run and cinema night.

There are hundreds of fundraising ideas to help you raise money for your club or team. With a little planning, forethought and committment from the whole club, you will be able to reach your financial goal.

On top of just fundraising, a club might look at direct sponsorship. And it doesn’t even have to be a money donation. A business could provide goods or services in return for being promoted by the club. For example, a local business might donate their curtains to the clubrooms to help decorate the interior or new chairs or other equipment.
Case studies:
Curtains from Royal Crest to a local Melbourne footy team
Tables from Matt Blatt to a political groups north shore rooms
A magic show from Nicholas J Johnson to any adult club or team

Sport Fundraising

There are numerous sport fundraising ideas to help your team or club raise money. Whether you are looking to generate money for an end of season trip, new club rooms or some fancier uniforms, there are plenty of fundraiser activities to try.

As with the club fundraiser ideas, it is always fun to raise money with your specific sport in mind. So for a football club, you might want to organise a footy tipping competition. Another idea is a raffle, and make the prizes related to footabll. For example first prize might be 2 tickets to the AFL grand final, and minor prizes could include a framed footy poster or a football.

Piggy-backing your club event can also be a great way to get money. This involves aligning your event with a well known event in your sport. For example, a soccer team might have a World Cup party, a footy team might have a grand final trivia night, or even a xmas or easter function can help drive a bigger crowd to your event. Hold the function at your club rooms, provide food, and hire a big screen to show off the action and encourage more people to come. Sport fundraising is that easy.

Schools Fundraising

Deciding on the best school fundraiser can be quite difficult. It would be great to come up with a unique idea that no one has though of to help raise money for your school but everything seems to have been done before. Even with the right idea, you may not have the time or resources to implement an effective school fundraising activity.

Here are a number of easy and cost-effective ideas for fundraising that can bring in extra money for your school:

  • Bingo Night Fundraiser
  • School Car Wash
  • Pizza Night
  • School Sleepover
  • Raffle Tickets
  • Online Charity Auction
  • Sponsored Silence
  • Cake or Pie Drive
  • Charity Race Night
  • No Uniform Day
  • School Dance
  • Chocolates Fundraising

Cake Sale

A cake sale is definitely a great idea to help raise money for your school. Everyone loves sweet treats so why not appeal to their taste buds! The most economical way is to get a few parents of kids to bake up a number of delicious goodies to sell at the cake drive. However we all know how busy people are today. So it might be worth buying wholesale cakes which you can resell at a margin. Chef Momos is a wholesale cake bakery in Melbourne and can make a large selection of treats for your fundraising. This includes chocolate mud cakes, pavlovas, slices, cookes and even friands.

School Wildlife Shows

Spreading the word and getting your fundraiser out there is half the battle. Telling other parents at kids parties can help get equally passionate people involved. Reptile Encounters does kids parties for Melbourne children and gives them a chance to get up close and personal with local Australian wildlife. They are also a great idea if you are having a fundraiser at your school. Simply hire them which will help attract more people along to your event, and also maybe charge $5 for kids to get a photo holding some of the reptiles. The choice is yours.

Another unique fundraising idea is to have a pet grooming contest. Most school kids have animals, and holding a competition to see who can make their animal look the best is fun and entertaining. Entrants could pay a fee to go in, and the winner can receive a prize that is donated. Classmates not competing could also go to the “showing” and pay a small entrance fee to attend, as could family and friends.
