7 Fun Fundraising Ideas




Need some inspiration for your fundraiser or event?  Here are 7 ideas to get you started:

  1. Ask guests to give donations to the ARL in lieu of gifts for a birthday party, wedding, anniversary, holidays, office parties, bridal shower, or baby shower!
  2. Run a local bake sale or lemonade stand and donate the proceeds - perfect for Girl and Boy Scout Troops!
  3. Request a team fundraiser - organize a ‘fun run’ or dog walk and recruit runners and sponsors.
  4. Host a concert or an event at your home or business to the benefit the ARL.
  5. Hold a yard or rummage sale.
  6. Sponsor a special exercise or yoga class with admission going to the ARL.
  7. Organize a competition between classrooms or grades, and see who can raise the most money.

Can we help?

Can We Help?

With a minimum of 10 days notice, the ARL can help you promote your fundraiser or event as follows:

  • Pre-event thank you via social media. 
  • Inclusion in Upcoming Events calendar.  A link to the events calendar is included in our weekly eblast to subscribers.
  • Post-event thank you via social media.  Once the ARL receives proceeds from an event, we will thank an individual or organization for raising funds.
