Harriets fundraising tips!


So I went to India in the summer of 2011, and I managed to raise over £3000 for the trip. There were absolutely loads of things we did, and definitely my tip is do lots of little fundraising things, not just one big one. I went with a group from my school, so we got together and organised cake sales at school parents evening, car washes, stalls at kite festivals and air shows, sponsored runs and cycles, and also paid group waitressing at a singing evening.
Also I managed to get sponsored by a couple of companies, not huge amounts about £100 or so, and also got a Saturday job for about 9 months before the trip. I basically spent the whole time period before the expedition saving and saving and saving, and managed to save enough money to pay for the cost of the trip, as well as all the kit I needed and also flights and vaccinations.
Probably the most successful fundraising things we did were the car washes and sponsored cycles/runs. I would also recommend if you can get to a large air show or event where there will be loads of people looking to entertain themselves and set up a kind of stall with raffles and summer fete activities, with really good prizes then there’s a big chance to make a lot of money. Just any opportunity that comes up, take it!

  2. Hi there! great stuff here, I'm glad that I drop by your page and found this very interesting. Thanks for sharing, hoping to read something like this in the future!
    Other school fundraisers that generate substantial revenue for schools include auctions and raffles. With these types of fundraising activities, the school requests donations from local restaurants and businesses in their area, that are then offered at the event. In the case of an auction, people are allowed to bid on the dinner, limousine ride, or whatever was donated by the local businesses in the community. In the case of a raffle, people purchase raffle tickets that are then later picked randomly from a container. Often the donations are solicited by parents acting on behalf of the school, who make phone calls, write letters, or know of other parents who work for companies who may be willing to donate.Each year, more and more nonprofits are running online auctions either alone, or in conjunction with a live fundraising event.
