Traditional fundraising events, such as bake sale, raffle ticket sale and quiz night, are always effective and relatively easy to organise. However, novel fundraising events can showcase your enthusiasm to the potential donors and sponsors. Subsequently, you can raise a surprisingly large amount of donations from these novel fundraising events!
For example, the Mauritius Office has organised a fundraising event which lasted for a whole day. Combining Mauritius’ Independence Day and Wear Red for RedR Day, the fundraising team included a lot of fun activities (e.g. bingo, animation corner, play station, dart, poker) into the events schedule. The event was a huge success, making the Mauritius Office among one of the highest-fundraising offices.
A mixture of both traditional and novel fundraising events is highly recommended – be both realistic and ambitious!
