Halloween is perfect for anyone looking for large scale fundraising event ideas. You can also, however, use Halloween as a great excuse for some good fundraising ideas at school, the workplace or the social club. The Halloween Room would love to help you in finding your niche in the community with Halloween. Coming up with good fundraising ideas for the Halloween season can be difficult. Its that time of year that nearly everyone enjoys and is a perfect opportunity to get some money-making in for your organization. Below are some good fundraising ideas to turn Halloween and the month of October into a top earner for your organization. Weather you try these on your own or need the Halloween Room to help coordinate your event, Halloween Fundraising is a great opportunity.
Are you letting the local stores sell all the pumpkins? Why not organize and hold a pumpkin sale the week before Halloween. Most people would rather buy when they know some of the money helps a charity. Team up with a supplier or wholesaler and split the profits. Alternatively offer a supplier a pitch at your workplace or school for an agreed price. You might also be able to sell ready carved pumpkins to local businesses, shops, bars and restaurants for their window displays.
Make up some delicious hot soup - nice and spicy is best. If you have a cauldron so much the better. Dress up as witches and sell it to friends, work-colleagues or passers-by. This works brilliantly in staff canteens if you can get the support of your firm's caterers.
Halloween fundraisers do not have to be complicated. In fact they can be relatively simple. Just find someone amongst your colleagues that could set up a cookie delervry to local businesses and storefronts. Who can resist a special Homemade Halloween Biscuit delivered to their desk?
Offer your colleagues a choice of Lucky Dip Bags. Some contain a treat such as a chocolate bar - others tricks such as an onion, a carrot, a stone with a plastic spider tied to it etc.
This can easily be combined with any other Halloween fundraisers you had going on or could be a "stand alone" event. The premise is who can come up with the best Jack o' Lantern / Decorated Pumpkin. Some might be carved in the traditional way but there are all sorts of other imaginative ways competitors might decorate them. Then put a bucket or cap by each pumpkin so people can vote for their top entry with loose change. Make sure you have your pumpkins located somewhere in a high traffic location. This can be a viral event with the right marketing.
This could be really obvious way to raise money but it’s a great way to put on something just a bit different and stand out from all the other charity fundraisers. Dress your venue in scary black with ghoulish decorations. Have all your staff and volunteers in costume. A fancy dress contest/masquerade for your guests or a costume contest that marks the best dressed costumes. Great Halloween themed food and a few little competitions throughout the course of the evening is a perfect way to have fun and raise dollar’s for your organization or foundation.
Here's one that would capture the imagination of the local press and guarantee you some great publicity. Here’s how it works, two teams of witches in full regalia face each other for the ultimate scare off. Using their brooms as hockey sticks and a small football the game is ready to start. You can set the time and location and while the event is being held you sell other halloween goodies to the crowds that come and watch.
