If you’re looking for fast ways to raise money, consider these suggestions:

  • Host a food or clothing drive. You could also accept toy donations and donations for your organization’s other philanthropic efforts, as holidays with gifting and feasts are nye.
  • Organize a virtual walkathon or road race. Have your members walk or run on their street and send in their times. When the weather does not permit outdoor activities this time of year in your region, participants can instead count steps in the local mall or school gym. While promoting the event, crowdfund for donations online.
  • Throw a talent show or put on an Old-Fashioned Christmas pageant; tickets can go toward the charities of your choice.
  • Give donors incentives with a digital auction or a travel raffle.
