Are you thinking of ways to involve the community and get more people moving to support your cause in the winter? Here are five winter fundraising ideas that will bring about more excitement and involvement for your organization.
Warm up the body and spirit by hosting a hot chocolate or tea sale. Use a seasonal event to set up a hot drink station and collect the proceeds to support your cause.
Tubing and Skiing
Take advantage of the cold weather by hosting a snow tubing or skiing event. You could partner with local companies to plan and sponsor this fundraiser. They will then donate a portion of their proceeds back to your organization or cause. These events will become social events that will provide the opportunity to spread more information about the fundraiser and get more people involved.
Are there any musically talented people in your involved with your organization? Consider heading out into the neighborhood to spread more cheer and information about your cause or organization through song. People will also be able to order a singing telegram to be sent out to coworkers, friends, and family members for birthdays, anniversaries, or even Valentine’s day.
The winter is a great time of year to have a bake sale. People will enjoy having a warm, delicious, and sweet treat in the cold weather. Encourage supporters and participants to also enter their most prized recipes into a baking contest. They’ll pay a small fee for their entry, which will also support your cause, and the winner can receive a small prize and bragging rights.
If you have some brave souls on your fundraising team, suggest a fun polar plunge. People will organize teams that will all raise money for your cause. At the event, team members will plunge into the cold water to raise awareness for your cause or organization and celebrate all the hard work that they’ve put into to supporting it. Secure the location as soon as possible and get any permits that may be necessary to host the event.
