Fundraising Tip of the Week: Fundraising Posters & Themes
One fantastic way to get your community involved in your event, campaign or fundraising drive is to run an Art or Drawing or even a Cartoon Competition around your theme. This is a fantastic idea for children, but even for adults too.
The drawings can be judged by artists within your community, with small prizes on offer (don’t forget to have them donated – a penny saved is a penny earned!). Have different categories that can win prizes – perhaps separated by age group or genre. The winning designs can be used for all sorts of purposes. Have a graphic designer (volunteering their time of course!) scan them and turn them into posters, flyers, and ‘shareable’ web images with clever captions so your community can spread the word on social media such as Facebook. If the artwork is good enough, you can even print some calendars or cards with the designs and sell them at your event.
Another cool idea is to have custom labels designed for the wine you sell at your event and then take orders for cartons to be delivered afterwards.
A spin on this idea is a video competition – kids these days can very quickly put together a short movie – and often very clever too.
