Scarily Good Fundraising

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 Under: Fundraising & Halloween


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.

What’s next? Guy Fawkes Night - share your fundraising ideas for another themed event in the comments box below!
