You can’t spell fundraising without “fun” so here are some festive ideas to kick your campaign into overdrive this fall.
1. Leaves for LiNK
Are pesky leaves filling your neighbors’ yards? Offer to rake them up in exchange for donations to your fundraising page!
2. Costume Party
If there’s one thing everyone looks forward to in October, it’s dressing up. Give your friends an excuse to wear their favorite costumes while supporting the North Korean people. Not only will you be able to talk about this life-changing work with them face to face, but you will also boost your fundraising efforts by selling food and drinks or charging an entry fee for a costume contest.
3. Pumpkin Carving Contest
Nothing says it’s autumn quite like carving pumpkins. Turn this staple activity of the Halloween season into a fundraiser by making it a competition and charging an entry fee. (Pro tip: Save money on prizes by contacting local businesses to see if they will donate goodies to give away.)
4. Fall Festival
Looking to fundraise on a bigger scale? Host a harvest festival! You can charge vendors to rent booth spaces, sell tickets for admission, and ask for sponsors in exchange for advertising at the event. Additional funds can be raised through game tickets, contest entries, and food sales.
Host a Thanksgiving-style dinner party! You can do the cooking and your friends can contribute by donating as a thank you. On a larger scale, you could host a catered benefit dinner with comfort food, offering discounts to those who bring friends.
