More Fundraising Ideas
There are lots of ways in which you could help us to do more of our work, and with many of them you can have some fun at the same time!
Many companies have a "Charity of the Year" or "Charity of the Month" - why not nominate Fledglings? Or maybe there's a social club or committee.
There are many events at which a collection is taken and donated to a charity, or a share of the proceeds. You could ask for Fledglings to be the recipient. For example:
A concert given by a local choir or band
Amateur art exhibitions
An old favourite that still works really well:
It could be running, walking, abseiling, skydiving, swimming
Do you know someone who regularly does events and could choose Fledglings?
Things to do at work
Okay some of these are a bit cheesy, but they do work!
Fine box for swearing or turning up late at meetings
Quiz night - get the grey cells going!
Organise a treasure hunt
Ask the boss if you could put something on the website
Social organisations and clubs
Many organisations have as one of their main priorities to make charitable donations. Very often they will respond most favourably to an approach from someone local. They include:
Organise a fundraising event
Here are just a few ideas:
Auction of promises
Bring and buy sale, maybe at a church or community centre
Dinner - cook a special dinner for donations
Pub crawl - how about fancy dress?
Car wash - maybe a local supermarket would allow you to use their car park?
Local charities and trusts
You or a friend might know of one, or might even know someone who's a trustee. It's well worth asking if they could consider a grant to Fledglings - we can provide the "words" if you need to write.
