Fundraising Ideas that make a big difference and are fun too
We are living in fast changing times and COVID19 put a stop to many fundraising events. But, we adapt and create new ways of raising money, whether it is being part of a 5k run where you run in Somerset and your mates run in Scunthorpe and Swansea or an online quiz night with contestants all over the country.
We have developed a guide to Virtual Events for bibic which we hope will help you come up with an idea and then take that idea right through to the event day itself.
Here are just a few ideas;
Virtual Pub Quiz +
Alright, so you have all done quizzes Via zoom, Facebook, or Teams so it is time to ramp it up a bit. Participants pay a modest fee to attend and the number of participants will depend on how many your internet can cope with.
Take the usual format for a quiz but add in rounds like –
- Go fetch e.g., something round and something yellow. First one back wins the points
- Who is (your boss?) – Photoshop your bosses head and place him or her onto the body of a famous person
- Whose brand is this – show bits of a brand without the name
Participants can run, walk, crawl, swim, or cycle (the distance could be altered if required).
There is no limit to participants, children can take part but must be accompanied by a parent at all times.
All events must take part over one specific weekend but not necessarily at the same time.
Participants will need to have a measurement of distance as proof of taking part and achieving their goal – Apple Health Monitor, Strava or similar are great. A screen shot of the achievement can then be published by the participant on the social media and on the joint JustGiving page.
Virtual Gaming event
Play on your own or part of a network of gamers, maybe alternate and play for 12-24 hours nonstop. You could organise a carefully monitored children’s version of this, but we believe the event is better for people over 18.
Players pay a modest entry fee via the event JustGiving page and can get sponsored for taking part in a marathon event and there could be prizes for those that win. If the event is being streamed live, then supporters can donate for a specific player to encourage them.
Virtual Movember challenge
Start during August and finish end of November – Grow the best handlebar moustache or the longest beard (make up your own categories). No limit to the number of competitors
One JustGiving page with all the contestants – photographs of smooth faced gents before and then hairy, during and afterwards. Get competitive as ‘every hair counts’ and this will raise more money. Show regular updates on social media and maybe hold an office sweepstake. Get your local barbers to sponsor you, you can place their logo on the JustGiving page.
