Fundraising Ideas: Over 225 Money Making Events for Community Groups, with a Resource Directory

Front Cover
McFarland, 1995 - Reference - 148 pages
Check out the community calendar section of almost any newspaper and you will find it filled with a variety of fundraisers. But how do groups organize a successful money making event? And what are some new ideas, beyond the usual car washes, bingo games and bake sales? From "-athons" (e.g., bikeathons, walkathons) to yard booths, over 225 proven fundraisers are included in this essoftcover Fašadessential reference work. Each entry contains a brief description of the event, the type of workers and tools needed to ensure its success and a reference to the resource directory. Hints for organizing and developing fundraisers are also given, along with a section of "success stories" that further emphasize the basics of effective fundraising. The resource directory provides names, addresses, phone numbers, and product descriptions for companies that supply materials and information needed to implement the fundraisers.
