Looking for a straightforward, effective way to raise money for charity? How about a raffle? If raffles are allowed in your state*, hosting a raffle is a reliable, low-cost fundraising strategy to engage supporters - and they take a whole lot less planning than a full-fledged event.
No matter your cause, annual revenue, staff size, event calendar, or location - having a website, a virtual presence for your nonprofit, is essential. This is where supporters come to learn of new programs, read about your latest newsworthy achievements, buy tickets for the gala, and make one-time and monthly donations that power your services.
With the economy on the up and up, "chari-tee" golf tournaments are growing in popularity. They're a fun way to freshen up your approach to summer development, take less planning than the annual gala or charity ball, and provide a distinct angle to reach and engage new supporters. Best of all, it's simple to cover costs through golfer registrations and sponsorships.
