How to Have a a Fun and Successful Fundraiser Auction

If you are in charge of a fundraiser and are in need for some ideas for the event, you probably already know that the key to a successful fundraiser is that it's fun. By having a fundraiser that is fun and includes different things from games to a silent auction it's going to a lot easier for you to even want to head it because you won't get bored trying to find things to do. Raising money for a worthy cause shouldn't be an uncomfortable thing to do or even painful. It also needs to go beyond that same old same old rummage sale or bake sale. Below are a few different ways in which you can raise some money and have fun doing it at the same time.

One thing you could include in your fundraiser could be some sort of tournament to include in the event. Some ideas for tournaments could be the following:

  • Golf
  • Bowling
  • Bingo
  • Monopoly
  • Food eating contests

  • Remember though, when you include a tournament in your event there are three important elements you have to include and that is a fee to enter it, people to participate and then of course a prize for the winner. So make sure that your tournament is included in your advertising of the entire event to get people interested in signing up.

    You also can include a silent auction as part of your event. This can be included in any kind of fundraiser that you are having from a ladies tea to a formal dinner in the evening. All you need to do is get a few items to auction off, set up a table or several tables with the items and then make bid sheets for each item making sure you have the description and retail value of the item and the minimum bid. Then provide room for the bidders to put their names and the bid amount.

    You also might want to consider making your fundraiser part of a particular season you are in, in other words if it's fall then have it be a fall festival, if it's spring then of course it becomes a spring fling and summer it could actually be a summer carnival. With these kinds of events you can include a variety of things like face painting, cakewalk, carnival games and if you want to be extravagant get a few rides included as well. Charge an entrance fee or you can set single prices for different activities.

    Whatever it is you decide to do the best thing you can do is to let your imagination take charge. By doing this you are going to be able to be far more creative and appeal to a lot of different people. When something is fun, more people are going to be more interested in attending. Just because it's charity that you are working with here does not mean you have to stick with traditional, never be afraid to try something new!
