Are you looking for innovative charity fundraising event ideas? Find out some ideas that will help you to raise the funds for a good cause.
Charity is making generous donations for the betterment of poor people, ill people, street children; helping the people out of a destructive natural hazard; and for the helpless people. This good deed cannot be done by a single person or by a single group of people.
This great cause requires donations from a lot of people. So, how do you get all the donors under one roof? You can do so by hosting charity fundraising. There are many ways to hold this event.
This involves lots of planning. Aspects like expenses, theme, invitations, publicity, committee appointment  need to be planned in advance to avoid confusion. If all is in place, your good cause will not only fetch your donations, but will also give you immense satisfaction. The first thing to consider, is a way to hold this charity event.

Scratch Cards

Get some custom-made scratch cards made in different themes. Give each donor a card to scratch, which will reveal the amount of money that they will have to donate. These amounts will not be high, so the donor should not have a problem giving it.
You can arrange for some coupons to go with the cards, so that the supporters are more than happy to donate the money. This idea can also be implemented in the workplace to collect quick money.

Candy Bars

People will donate for candy bars. Set up a table in a fair. Explain your fundraising cause and ask for donations. Every donation will earn them candies. This can be a creative way to raise money. Candy bars are less expensive, and people will naturally donate more than the cost of a candy bar. You can think of giving something else, instead of candy bars.

Garage Sale

It is an old but quick idea. Many times, your trash is someone else's treasure. Get together with friends and have a big garage sale. You can sell clothes, antiques, signed baseball bats and balls, old picture frames. It is a successful way of fundraising.

Book Sale

Many of us have books collected right from our childhood. Our children have outgrown them, and we do not read them anymore. Hold a book sale, and it will be a success because people will pay a lot to get the first editions or old editions or some rare books.
Book collectors may even pay you more than you think. This will ensure a successful fundraising event. After all, it is said that charity begins at home. Let the others enjoy your books (which are lying in your attic) and let the helpless benefit from them, too.

Baby Items

When you were expecting your first child, there were so many things that you bought for the baby; numerous toys, books, clothes, accessories, crib, blankets, bags, and much more. As the baby grows, he/she outgrows all these things, too.
The clothes that no longer fit but are not torn, the toys that are not broken, the crib that you have kept in your storage, and such other items can be sold off, and the money can be collected for the unfortunate. You can think of selling any other stuff too, and make a creative idea on your own.


You can host a fashion show, a beauty pageant, dog show, or a talent show. Organize that will get most attention. Charge a small entry fee, and when people come to the event, ask for more donations.


Get your friends having different talents. Organize a funfair where you set up stalls for people. Ask them to donate money. You could charge entry fee. Icing on cake would be when you and your friends donate the money earned.
Other than these, auctions, sports events, group brunches, lunches or dinners, musical concerts, help your social work. Conducting such activities during holiday or festival season is among the successful ones as people are certainly in a good mood, and share willingly.
Remember that whichever event you plan, people will donate for a good cause. So, stop worrying and start with your preparations.
