5 Reunion Fundraising Ideas



So your family reunion event is a few months away and your reunion money box shrinking. The trick to growing your funds is to use those few dollars to make more funds  How? Two words. Yard sale. 

Yard Sale Ideas

Start at home. Collect items you may have stored away that are good as new and likely to stir the interest of friends, family and neighbors. Ask local family members to donate yard sale items - proceeds toward the family reunion.

Family Auction And Lease

Need more funds? Consider having a family auction. Most family members have something to donate to that other family members would like to own or lease. The beauty of a lease auction is that you can always get the item back after a few months of possession.

Online Fund Raiser

One of the most time-effcient and cost-effective ways to raise funds is to promote a fundraiser to all family members via your google+ or facebook page. You can do this easily using your FRP Social Interface. Fimark's Family Reunion Planner Social features great fundraiser ideas which I will discuss later in this article.

Fund Raiser Web App

Another way to hold an online fundraiser is using a standalone application and pre-built webpage devoted to the fundraiser. The MyEvent folks have been online for over a decade and know how to prepare a fully functional fundraising web application for your next online fundraiser. Take a tour at Myevent.com

Rallying Support For The Fund Raising Event

Send out flyers, emails, text messages and invitations at least three weeks in advance that includes all items going up for sale. List items in categories to make desired items easy to find on your list. Have attendees share in organizing and managing some aspect of the event to ensure that they will be present to participate.

Remember, the objective of your fundraiser is to raise reunion funds, not to spend reunion funds. That said, make sure that all who attend bring a dish, drinks, and supplies to equalize the expense and prevent having to dip into the reunion account.
