Use the ABCs of Fundraising

Good news Relayers! A document has been added to the Relay For Life website that will help teams come up with ideas for pre-Relay event fundraisers.

The ABC's of Fundraising can be found in the Relay Library as well as the Team Captain Toolkit.

If you do all of your fundraising prior to Relay For Life, you can eliminate the hassle of collecting pledges after the event. Each team member is encouraged to set a minimum goal of raising $100 plus registration fee.

There are a ton of great fundraising ideas in the Team Captain Toolkit for both the team and the individual to help you meet your goals. Be creative, have fun, and ask everyone you know or meet to help support your effort.

Here are just a few ideas to get you started:

A) Auctions of All Kinds – Auction off a prime parking space at work
B) “Boss for the Day” – Allow people to bid on being boss for a day – high bid wins
C) Change Jar – Keep a change jar in high traffic areas. All change is donated to your team fundraising totals
D) Dress Down Day – Ask every employee to contribute to your Relay team, and in return they will be allowed to “dress down” on a specified day at work

Have other fundraising ideas that you'd like to share? Please post! We'd love to hear from you.
