Taking on the challenge of fundraising may feel daunting at first, but there’s nothing better than counting the figures and seeing all of your hard work pay off at the end. After all, everybody loves raising money for a good cause! Here at Speed of Sight, we appreciate every fundraiser that is carried out in support of our charity and the different ways that people choose to raise funds.
It’s time to dig out your apron! Everybody loves a bake sale and it’s quite easy to tempt people with chocolate brownies or fairy cakes as a way to raise money for charity. This method of fundraising might not be as profitable as alternative ideas, but it will certainly be a lot of fun. You could even get an entire community involved and put on a large spread of different baked goods for people to choose from!
If you’re a self-proclaimed adrenaline junkie, then skydiving may sound like a great way to raise money for charity. Certainly not one for the faint hearted, taking part in a sponsored skydive really grabs peoples’ attention and is certain to result in a favourable amount of donations from your nearest and dearest. In fact, there are certain companies that cater specifically to people who are looking to skydive for charity.
We wouldn’t blame you if the idea of jumping out of a plane doesn’t appeal to you, and luckily there are a number of ways to raise money with your feet planted firmly on the ground. An auction is a group effort and involves the donation of high-ticket items being sold to the highest bidder, with all the proceeds going towards charity.
It is important to remember that fundraising for a charity isn’t supposed to be stressful, and these activities are carried out in good faith as a motivator in order to encourage people to make a donation wherever they can. After all, donating your time to a charity can be just as beneficial as donating a large sum of money because it helps spread the word.
