Fundraising Ideas A to Z

  • -

    Jail & Bail – for a donation employees can be arrested and for an additional donation can post their own bail OR employees have a bounty placed on their head, are arrested, and are not set free until the entire bounty is raised ($100+ per inmate).

  • -

    Kinder Tent (at the event) – offer to baby-sit and entertain the tots for a fee.

  • -

    Kiss the Pig –- select three to five well-known & well-liked employees. Have the employees choose the individual they would like to see kiss the pig by purchasing a jelly bean (s) for 50 cents each. The jelly bean(s) will be placed in a jar for that individual. The individual with the most jellybeans will have to kiss the pig.

  • -

    Lawn Service – while you are mowing your lawn, mow someone else’s!

  • -

    Letters – Write one letter for friends and another for business associates. If you use a computer to personalize your letters (or if you hand write them) thank them for the specific amount they gave you last year.

  • -

    Send letters around the middle of March for a late-April event. Consider the last pay date before the event for many the middle of April – it’s harder for people to ignore when there is a due date other than the event date.

  • -

    Luminaries – what a great GIFT during the holidays (Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, etc.).

  • -

    Movies – rent short videos (old, classic films are great - and have a movie week during lunch hour). Charge admission and invite employees to eat their lunch while they watch.

  • -

    Matching Funds – ask your CEO/President to match the total raised by your team or to be the leading donor for your team. (In order for it to count toward incentives, you must turn in written confirmation prior to the event.)

  • -

    Online – send invitations to pledge to everyone you know, anywhere in the world, via e-mail.

  • -

    Pancake Breakfasts

  • -

    Payroll Deduction – employees can make their own contributions by having it deducted directly from their pay cheque.

  • -

    Penny Jar – popular with school teams

  • -

    Percentage of Sales. Designate a percentage of one day’s sales or proceeds and let the public know so they will buy more.

  • -

    Pet Service – love pets? …walk someone else’s dog!

  • -

    Pies – find which fruit is in season and sell your delicious pies!

  • -

    Place a Picture of the person your team is walking in honor or in memory of in a highly visible place to remind team members of the importance of their participation.

  • -

    Pot Luck Lunches at the Workplace – name every Wednesday “Pot Luck Day” – team members take turns preparing foods, salads, desserts, etc. and offer to employees at the workplace at a set price or donation.

  • -

    Publicize your team’s participation in the company newsletter.
