Cheap and creative fundraising ideas | MN2S

The best fundraising ideas are always the cheapest to implement – it means that as much money as possible can go directly towards the work of a charity. The advent of social media has allowed for some truly inspired fundraising campaigns which have cost charities little or nothing. We’ve rounded up some fabulous and cheap fundraising activities you could run to raise cash for your favourite charity.

Create a hashtag

The #IceBucketChallenge will surely go down in fundraisers’ history books as the first and most successful hashtag fundraising campaign on social media. It saw celebrities and ordinary people alike dumping buckets of icy water over themselves in a bid to raise cash for charities – mostly those supporting sufferers of Motor Neuron Disease.

If you want to do the same for a charity, you’ll find there’s lots of competition out there these days. Try to think of something fun and unique that’s a bit of a challenge, and create a hashtag to match it, then get some influencers with large networks on board to kick-start your hashtag.

Supper clubs

In recent years movements like #CookForSyria have driven the popularity of fundraising supper clubs. It’s an easy one to organise; just invite friends to dinner in return for a donation to your charity of choice. It’s an easy one for organisations to implement, as all that you need to provide is a few recipes, some advice and guidance and perhaps a hashtag for participants to share their food pictures.

Hire a celebrity

It might sound counterintuitive, because hiring a celebrity costs money – but a celebrity billing at your event could allow you to charge more for tickets and offset the cost, increasing your overall profit. Whether it’s booking a comedy act or an author for a meet and greet, you could find that a small outlay helps you to reap large rewards for your charity. Contact entertainment agencies like MN2S to find out more.

Raising money for charities

Supper clubs, celebrity hire and hashtag challenges are just a few cheap and cheerful ways to raise cash for your favourite cause. There are plenty more, and it’s a great way to give back, whether as an organisation or as an individual.
