Fundraisers should be simple and easy and should have quick results. Here are five simple and fast fundraising ideas.
1. Ugly Tie Contest
Let’s accept the fact that we all buy wearables and clothing over the years that are undesirable and we would rather forget about. Ugly tie contest can be a great fundraising idea that will not only help you raise funds but to give people opportunity to laugh. (more…)
Many Schools and Charities see inkjet and laser toner cartridge recycling as a relatively simple way of fundraising. One recent research study found that an average school can use 300 printer cartridges per year. So say this school got paid an average of £1.50 per recycled empty cartridge they could then raise £450 just from their own school’s office printers. A medium-sized business can use between 75 and 200 cartridges per year, or even more.
So lets say the school fundraising team manages to persuade 10 local businesses to ‘donate’ their empty laser toner cartridges, they can expect about 100 x 10 = 1000 cartridges which at an average of £1.50 would raise funds of £1950. This calculation, of course, does not include all the empty inkjet and laser toner cartridges parents could be donating. Butit’s still a pretty significant sum and one that any PTA or charity would be happy to accept.
