Give Back This Thanksgiving with Fundraisers!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and what better time to give back to your community? At Effective Fundraising Solutions, we think that there’s no bad time to give back to your community, but there’s something special about the holidays, especially Thanksgiving. If you need to raise money for a school, cause, or organization, Thanksgiving provides plenty of opportunities for great fundraisers.

Here are some suggestions for Thanksgiving fundraisers!


Giving Tuesday

To counterbalance the sheer madness of shopping that is Black Friday, Giving Tuesday is a day to express your generosity. Put together teams or break down your school by grade and compete to see who can bring in the most money. Or do a coat or clothing drive. The group that collects the most donations wins!


Cookie Dough & Snack Programs

Over Thanksgiving weekend and during the holiday season people spend time together doing classic holiday activities. And can you think of a more classic holiday activity than baking? But we often don’t have time to bake from scratch. With cookie dough fundraisers and gourmet snack programs from EFS, you can make holiday fun easy and raise money!



Friendsgiving Dinner

It’s not always possible to spend Thanksgiving Day with everyone you love, but you can always have a second gathering for Friendsgiving. There are many groups that have big Friendsgiving get-togethers, and it’s easy to turn that into a fundraiser. Ask all the attendees to bring an item to donate, whether it’s food, clothing, or something else. You can also ask people to donate a “cover charge” of $10 or whatever people can afford and give all the proceeds to a named charity.


Gift Basket Raffle

Everyone loves gift baskets, right? They’re full of fun goodies and they’re easy to re-gift if you have someone tricky on your list. A gift basket raffle is an easy fundraiser to do as a virtual or in-person event. You can turn the drawing into an event or livestream it.
