Fundraising Ideas

For those who want to plan a significant function, a dance or a race is always a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It’s still cold in New England, so be sure to plan your fundraisers accordingly! Always plan to recruit a sponsor and have a donor in mind for the fundraiser proceeds.

Dance the Night Away

The iconic sweetheart dance never goes out of style. You can shake it up by hosting a grandparent’s day dance at a local retirement home or go all out with a Valentine’s Ball. Dances are a great way to recruit a sponsor. Recruit a business to sponsor the event, with proceeds benefiting an organization that helps low-income seniors. Bonus: Sell flowers to each dance partner and have each person write an anonymous valentine to share.

Charitable Run

Even when it’s cold, there’s nothing like a run! And if the weather is less than optimal, plan a backup like a school or a university gym. Have a signup ready to go online and create athletic wear with the fundraiser’s logo, sponsor, and donor mission. Bonus: sell cookies to bystanders and hand out thank you notes to those who take part in the run!

Books + Charity Drive = Love

Who doesn’t love giving and accepting books? Have your school host a book drive for a local children’s nonprofit! Bonus: offer a gift basket giveaway or a raffle for all to participate in.

A Shower of Flowers 

And finally, Flowers! Everyone enjoys receiving a rose or two on Valentine’s. Instead of roses, feel free to switch it up with other flowers in season, like tulips. A percentage could go to a local hospital or charity for every rose sold.
