New Year Fundraising Tips for Your Nonprofit

Welcome in the New Year with fun fundraising!

The New Year is a great time to kick your fundraising into high gear. The holiday season has passed and many of us are looking ahead to the opportunities that the New Year presents. Many people are committed to making dedicated efforts to better their communities, raise money for charity, and spending their time wisely. Now is the time to capitalize on people’s generous and thoughtful actions. Take a look at these tips on how to kick start the New Year with fundraising.

  • Focus on services

A services auction is a great fundraiser, particularly at this time of year. Services to be auctioned off could range from cooking, cleaning, babysitting, gardening, legal counsel, or home decorating.

  • Consider minor donors

Many campaigns tend to focus on the major donors. It’s important, and also effective, to focus on the people who give smaller amounts. Making all donors feel important is a great way to establish ongoing and consistent fundraising.

  • Keep it simple

Have a casual party or a potluck that is more casual than most fundraising events. Explain to attendees that you want to keep it simple with attire, food, and want to maximize their donations for good by saving on party costs.

  • Host a FUNraiser

Challenge your employees, volunteers, and families to invent the most fun activity for a fundraiser. Crown a winner and put the event together.
