Each year or even each month you will find your school or Church trying to raise money for missions, field trips, or other important causes. There might even come a time in your life when you need to raise money for close friends or family members who need money for medical reasons – but you are on a tight budget. So how are you to raise enough money?
What you need to do is set up a fundraiser that does not require you to have to spend a lot of money or even any money at all. One of the best things that you could try to do first is to go around to your friends and tell them that you are hosting a garage sale at your home. Ask them to donate items that they do not want.
If you have a large group of people who are trying to work with you at raising the money than make sure they participate and you both work hard. One great way that you are able to do this is to volunteer your time at a restaurant. Go to a family restaurant where there are no waiters.
Ask them if you can spend a weekend or two busing tables and getting the customers everything that they need. On each table place a jar with a picture of who you are helping or the reason they are trying to save money. The customers will have no pressure to donate and can do as much as they want.
For any quick fundraiser idea that you choose make sure that you advertise it. Try to put up flyers and even go door to door to tell people what you are trying to accomplish. Otherwise people will not know to help you and you will never be able to raise any money.
