21 Other Creative and Easy Ways to Raise Money


1. How Many Marbles - Ask donors or supporters to pay $1 to guess how many marbles you have placed in a glass jar.

2. Bingo - Everyone loves an occasional game of bingo. Offer some prizes and charge a few bucks for every card. You might even have an entry fee.

3. Raffles - Ask members of your group to donate items or get local businesses to offer meals. Sell tickets and choose some winners.

4. Have a Gold Party - The price of gold and silver is near record highs. Get people to donate unwanted old jewelry. Their junk can turn into your treasure.

5. Fresh Cookies - How many people won't pay a few dollars for a product like freshly baked cookies? Raise some dough with this one!

6. Walk-a-thon - Promote healthy living while you stuff your pockets. Great way for schools and others to raise some capital.

7. Car Washes - Never a shortage of dirty cars. Provide a good service and you'll be surprised at the donations you can receive.

8. Silicone Bracelets - So many big groups raise money selling bracelets. Great way for supporters to promote your cause as well.

9. Spaghetti Dinner - Get volunteers to donate homemade spaghetti and charge by the plate.

10. Cook Books - Have members submit recipes and print your own cook book. People will pay good money for local recipes and you can cash in.

11. Grade-a-thons - One of the best ways for schools to raise some money and promote performance. Get parents, friends and others to pledge money for each A or B. Collect every grading period.

12. Holiday Shop - Solicit donations of new or gently used items and hold a holiday sale around Thanksgiving when people are in the giving spirit.

13. Capital Campaign - Just cut to the chase and tell your supporters and members that you have cash needs and ask for their contributions.

14. Talent Shows - People love to attend fun events. See if you can rally together some talent in your group and sell tickets to see your show.

15 . Skip a Meal - Sponsors commit to giving up a meal together and give the money saved to the designated cause.

16. Silent Auctions - Go around to local businesses and even group members and ask them to donate new items to your group. Write down descriptions and suggested prices and people to bid on the items. At the end of a designated period of time identify the winning bid and award the prizes.

17. Recycle Printer Cartridges - This is a great idea for a supplemental fundraiser. Stop throwing away used printer cartridges and instead get members to donate them and sell them to a recycler.

18. Read-a-thons: If you're looking for a natural school fundraising idea then consider holding a read-a-thon. After all most schools have required reading. Why not turn that requirement into a revenue source?

19. Online Donations: Depending on the purpose you're raising money for you might consider one of the many cause-related online fundraising companies that you can pursue donations through. There are lots of companies in this channel so we will not specify any in particular.

20. Marathon Sporting Events: In years past many sports teams and athletic departments raised money holding a marathon softball game, basketball game or other sports event. Supporters would come by and donate money. More money is raised through concessions and sponsorships by local businesses.

21. School Carnivals: Carnivals are a terrific way for elementary schools to raise a ton of money. Plan on lots of games of chance, some rides if possible and other fun activities. You can make much more money if you sell food as well. The only downside is the number of volunteers. Great carnivals are year long in the planning but well worth it if done properly.
