Several traditional ways exist to raise money for charitable causes. Some ideas included are charity auctions, benefit dinners, walk-a-thons or jog-a-thons, bake sales, rummage sales, candy sales and raffles.
All of the above activities are used on a regular basis to raise funds for charitable organizations. The reason their use is so widespread is because they work. However, the previously mentioned ideas aren't the only viable options. Others fund raising activities include dunk tanks, carnivals and car washes. The key to holding a successful fund raising event is either to find an activity that people enjoy, such as auctions and carnivals, or to fill a consumer need by offering donated items for sale. Pancake breakfasts are another popular way to raise money for worthy causes. Holiday bazaars and plant sales are other fund raising classics. There are many possibilities, and each charitable cause can easily find one that works well for them.
