Send a letter to local businesses
Malmesbury rugby club wanted to sell some advertising space in their programme but offered to enter the local companies in their draw for their international rugby tickets (Thanks to Tony)

Donate an hour
Ask people to donate an hour’s salary (Thanks to Tony)

Ask all of the club for a one off sum of money
At our Radio Club we wanted to raise over a thousand pounds for some new equipment. We tried a jumble sale and a raffle, but after a lot of effort we had only raised a few hundred pounds. In the end we asked every member of the club if they could afford it to contribute £40, or if they couldn’t to contribute what they could. We raised what we wanted within the week and saved everyone a lot of time and effort.

Make it what people can afford, but provide some guidelines. You are asking them for their time, but providing money could do the same (Thanks to Jonty)

Auction of promises
Our local primary school raised a staggering £9,000 ($18,000) from an auction of promises. Before the auction there was a large meal with a barrel of beer and wine on sale. This helped to get things into the auction mood. A lot of parents and local businesses were asked to donate some of their products or services. The businesses all got featured in the auction catalogue. Things sold really well with most things going for three or four times their real value. A swiss loaf even sold for £25 ($50). It was a fun night out and raised a lot of money. (Thanks to Jonty)

Company Charity Scheme
Find out if your company has a charirty or a match giving scheme and ask them to contribute (Thanks to AmyP)

Hat Day!
You could have a Hat Day. This could be done at school or at work. Everyone has to pay pay $1 to wear a crazy hat! (Thanks to Sarah).

  204. What we are doing at my school….

    We are building a wishing well and there will be 3 slots for each grade. (6th, 7th, and 8th) At the then of the 2 weeks, whichever grade has the most money will win a BIG prize.We are getting this company to donate a lot of their festival equipment (small roller costers, fun houses, and a whole bunch of stuff like that) and the winnning grade will have a big day where they can play around with all that stuff on the football field.

    I’m in 8th grade, and for a way for me to raise money, my grade is hosting a talent show for the whole school. Students will audition for it and then we choose the best to be in the show. (about 20 students) and then people will pay to come and watch it. We did this 2 years ago and raised about 1000 bucks. it works well…

    teddy tombola with clean donated teddies (to make it easier for the kiddies to know if they had a winning ticket we found a kids stamper pen of a teddies face and stamped winning tickets much better than trying to see if they had a certain number at the end of the ticket) and bottle tombola which has bottles of alchohol and bottles or tom ketchup etc alwyas a very good result …these stall were busy all day

  251. Easy Fundraising allows schools, churches, charities, clubs and organisations in the UK to register their chosen cause and earn donations. Supporters of each local cause can then raise funds by shopping online with leading retailers such as Amazon, and M&S as they normally would. For every purchase that is made the chosen cause will receive a donation that can be anywhere up to 15% of the order value depending on the store and product purchased. The service is absolutely free and works by consumers simply signing into the site and clicking on the retailer’s link and purchasing the products that they would normally do.

    There is also a search tool called ‘Easy Search’ which is another fundraising idea on the site that lets registered users raise funds and donations simply by searching as they would normally on the internet.
