1- Party

Throwing a party is probably the most classic - and efficient - event type. There are many different types of parties. They are always a good bet because they provide fun, and as we all know, people love to have fun.

The parties can be like at a nightclub or bar, with a DJ, lots of music, dance floor and drinks. Talking about drinks, you can sell them with a cover charge to raise funds.

Other than this type of party, you can throw a costume or themed party. Just have the party during a specific holiday or celebration like Valentine’s day, Easter, Halloween, etc. The invitation card, decoration and elements of the event have to be customized according to the theme.

Here are some ways you can raise money with these parties:

- Sell tickets;

- Charge for food and drinks;

- Charge for some attractions available on the party;

- Place a donation box at the venue,

- Organize a raffle.

It can be basketball, bowling, soccer or any other sport that you think people would enjoy. Sports tend to unify and bring people together. You can even try to invite a sports celebrity to participate. This would bring a lot of donors in!

3- Auction

If you own or can gather good items for auction, this can be a good way to raise money. Remember to place reasonable prices on the products.

4- Food

Another efficient way to raise funds is by having a lunch, dinner, barbecue or any other food event that has the ability to gather everyone - the community, family, friends and friends of friends. Tell them about your cause. They will show up to embrace your cause or just to meet new people while enjoying good food.

Choose a menu that people like. The most common are: pasta, pizza, barbecue, traditional food from a certain region, and so on. Try to get donations from supermarkets and restaurants so then you can lower the costs of the event.

Make an invitation card specifying the menu: “pizza night” for example. Sell tickets beforehand. During the event you can sell other things like drinks, and desserts.

7- Street art

This has become very popular around the world. Organizers and producers of these events take advantage of the popularity of street art to raise money. The idea here is to gather some graffiti artists to paint live while people observe them in action. Add a raffle or auction while they work on their art and you will raise extra money.

8- Performances/shows

If you know someone who can put up a show like singing, playing an instrument, dance, juggle, tell jokes, magic or any other, then you can organize an event to show your friend’s talent. It doesn’t hurt to ask your friend if he/she can donate a working day for your cause.

Just like other events mentioned above, you can sell tickets to the show, as well as charging for food and drinks. This is a great opportunity to present your cause to the public and ask for donations.
