Looking for a fun way to raise funds for CureSearch? Below are some unique fundraising ideas that you can use to help CureSearch fund innovative and targeted research.
1.Bake Sales: bake sales are an easy way to raise money for your CureSearch Walk team. Gather up your team mates and have everyone bring a baked good!
2.Coin Collection: create some healthy competition between classrooms at your child’s school. Whoever collects the most change wins a fun prize for their whole class!
3.Food fights: always wanted to have a food fight, but afraid you were going to get in trouble? Pick an outdoor spot, gather your friends (and some towels) for a food fight to benefit your CureSearch Walk team! Ask participants to make a donation to CureSearch to join in on the fun. Everyone will have fun and raise funds for children’s cancer research.
4.Corporate Sponsors: do you know a business owner, local vendor, or corporation in the local community who would like to get more involved in the CureSearch Walk and gain community exposure? Ask them to sponsor your team or Walk! When they do, they will get their logo on your t-shirt or on your local CureSearch Walk website.
5.Big game/ Show/ Event night: show the super bowl, favorite college or professional team game, Olympics, Reality Show Finale, etc. Ask your friends to donate $20 to attend. You can then also play games like guess who will win, score the most points, or who will get kicked off and charge a participation fee for each entry.
6.House Warming, Bridal Shower, or Birthday: throw yourself or a friend a party and ask for donations to CureSearch in lieu of gifts.
7.Movie Night: pick up the hottest new release and have friends over to watch. You could even rent a projector to show it on a wall or outdoors during the summer. Admission is a donation to CureSearch!
8.Dinner/ Cocktail/ Wine and Cheese Party: throw a fancy party and charge guests a fee for attending. Try to have items donated or plan on a budget so you can donate as much possible to CureSearch!
9.Game Night: this can be anything from basketball to Monopoly to PS3 to poker. Charge an entrance fee and give 30-50% to the winner and the rest to CureSearch.
10.Zumba-thon: be healthy while you raise funds for CureSearch! Have participants ask their friends and family to make pledges for every hour they zumba.
