What are you doing to celebrate Halloween and raise funds
for your charity or not for profit organisation?
Themed fundraising events are a great way to encourage
children to participate and get involved in a worthy cause. Children love dressing up for Halloween (so
do a lot of grown ups!) and here are just a few ideas to get everyone involved.
Nearly any idea can be turned into a spooky Halloween
fundraising event. So why not start with something you are familiar with and
put a ghoulish twist on it.
Halloween Party –
Dress your venue in a scary dark décor and play a spooky soundtrack. You can
include a ‘fancy dress’ competition, silent auction, raffle and tasty Halloween
themed buffet menu.
Family Fun Day –
including a spooky cake and biscuit sale, splat the ‘bat’ and ‘trick of treats’
Lucky Dip bags.
Trick or Treating
– collect donations while trick or treating will teach kids to give back and
benefit local charities.
Pumpkin competition –
Kid’s love carving pumpkins to make scary lanterns, you can charge a small
entrance fee and provide a prize for the best decorated.
Or join a sponsored event such as Charity Choice’s ‘Moonrider’ Halloween Special on 25th
October 2013 and fund raise for a charity of your choice.
So get your supporters involved today and raise funds for
your organisation with a fun filled event.
All such events can be recorded in AdvantageNFP
Fundraiser as Fundraising Activities, where you can track received income and
attendance. If you record targets and expenses you can then also report
on progress and a return on investment.
