3 Ways to Fundraise Safely

We’re all back to school, but it’s looking a little different this year. The new rules and regulations have made a huge impact on teams throughout the country. The typical and dependable fundraisers such as car washes and bake sales are probably not possible this year. This doesn’t mean your team isn’t able to fundraise, it just means it’s time to get creative with new ideas! Here are 3 ways to help raise money for your team, while at the same time staying safe.

  1. Hold a virtual raffle
    1. This one takes some work, but it’s worth it! Your team can raffle off different prizes and baskets using Facebook or a social media platform of your choice. This helps you get the word out to a lot of people at once and they’ll be more interested in donating knowing they could win a super cool prize. The best way to do this is to have people buy tickets using a money transfer app. Once all the tickets are bought you can hold a live virtual event to crown the winner by using an online random generator. This can be done as many times as you want and can also work for a 50/50 raffle.
  2. Start an online shop
    1. Online shopping has increased drastically during quarantine and still remains very popular. You can execute this by using an online store builder or posting on social media. Your team can use this to sell apparel and accessories. It would also be great to add some items that would be useful during this particular period in time, such as selling face masks or hand sanitizer with your team name on it.
  3. Social media “bingo board”
    1. A bingo board is super easy and can be posted by every team member! For this one, someone can design an image advertising your team with the board using an online tool. Each box has a dollar amount that ranges from $1-$5. It seems like a small amount, but if every teammate can fill their board then your team can make a good amount with just one social media post! This board is usually posted as a story, so you can keep crossing off the boxes and reposting as people donate. Tagging the person that donated in the box is key because it acknowledges the person that donated and can also motivate others to donate knowing that they can be acknowledged as well! I have also seen this done as a “challenge board” where each donation counts towards a funny challenge that the member must do in order to incentivize more people to donate.
