If you’re a part of a religious group or faith charity then there are loads of fun, interactive ways that you can fundraise for your cause. That’s why we have put together some fundraising ideas for religious charities. Sometimes simply spreading awareness and teaching people about your cause can be as valuable as donations and can lead to further support. There are always new initiatives and resources that charities need help with and because most religious groups and faith charities relying on donations, it’s important to have a fundraising strategy in place. It’s healthy to always look at different avenues and ways of reaching out to people in the community.
Here at TheGivingMachine, we provide the perfect way for your religious charity to receive sustained, long-term donations. All you need to do is sign up with us, which you can find out more about here. Once you’ve done that, you can start encouraging your community to sign up themselves and start donating to your charity every time they buy from one of our thousands of participating online retailers. They’ll need to choose your religious charity to donate to and once they’ve done that, they can start making free donations. When they buy online we’ll take a small percentage of their purchase total, at no extra cost and turn this into a free donation. Your charity can benefit every time someone buys online!
Wristbands are a fab and fun way to spread awareness for your religious charity and to raise money. You can get your wristbands in vibrant colours that can act as a great conversation starter and get people talking about your charity. You can ask shops in our local area to keep a few wristbands on their counter so that they’re visible to lots of people in the community and people can always have the opportunity to buy one.
Religious charities are great at rallying the community together and getting people to donate items to sell for charity. The good thing about jumble sales is that you won’t need many resources to organise one, just a few tables and some willing volunteers. You can also sell refreshments on the side so that you can make some extra cash. A jumble sale is something that you can do regularly and it gives you the chance to engage with your community and have a chat with members of your local community. People love a bargain and they might unearth some hidden treasures in the process!
Everyone loves some amateur dramatics right? Putting on a pantomime or a theatre show is a fun way to get everyone in your community involved and let your hair down. There can be a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes when you want to put on a show, but if you already have access to your own premises, they can easily be transformed into performance spaces. You’ll need some willing volunteers to don some costumes and start learning their lines, but it’s the type of activity that brings people together and shows the community that you’re active members and you like to contribute. Remember to provide refreshments and programmes, so that you can make some extra cash.
