Running a non-profit can be quite challenging and one of the most important activities that need to be done is fundraising. A non-profit’s ability to raise funds is paramount to its success and without that ability, it may soon become defunct. As a result, the board members and staff of this organization are all responsible for fundraising and ensuring that the money collected is used for its original purpose to help the community. So, with that said, we will now look at a few ideas that any non-profit can do to raise funds on a regular basis.

The first idea is to use technology and modern marketing in order to raise funds. For example, there are many online companies that allow you to create T-shirts and sell them online. For example, Teespring and Amazon both allow you to create custom t-shirts with your own artwork and they will handle all the orders, create the t-shirt and ship them out to the buyers. The only thing that you have to do is market the t-shirt and collect the income from Amazon or Teespring. This is a great method for non-profits to raise money where they can simply create graphics related to their non-profit and create one or more t-shirts. They can then ask people to buy the t-shirts online and that’s it. For each t-shirt sold, the non-profit will make at least $5 so it can quickly add up to a sizable amount of money.

Next, another more common fundraising idea is to host a sports competition in your community. This is a great way to foster community spirit and raise funds at the same time. Firstly, you will have to identify the most popular sports in the community whether that be basketball, football, soccer or cricket. Then, you can get various teams involved and ask for their support in the competition. Your non-profit can then sell the tickets and even provide other items for sale on game days which are all great opportunities to raise money.

A third idea would be to host a variety of different events throughout the year. Some great events that the non-profit could host include a comedy night, karaoke  night, talent show, beauty contest etc. These events usually attract a lot of interest and are a great way to raise money through ticket sales. These types of events can be done throughout the year and can become a stable source of funds for the non-profit.

In closing, we have just looked at a few great ideas that any non-profit can use to raise funds. Of course, there are hundreds of other ways to raise funds, so it is essential that the non-profit considers as many methods as possible. However, once these funds are raised, it is essential that the non-profit uses it responsibly and the community benefits as a whole. After all, the entire purpose of this type of organization is to focus on giving back to the community and improving the overall quality of life for everyone.
