    Default Fund Raiser events

    I'm starting an event committee to come up with fund raising ideas. I'd like to eventually progress into having at least one event per month to raise money. Please relay any ideas you might have. Thanks.

    I run a car show every year. Each year it has been getting progressively bigger. We made about $5500 in cash donation but around $14,000 in equipment donations also. I also had a coin toss that brought in $5300 and that was one day. You can look into doing a pancake breakfast, comedy nights etc. The list goes on and on.
    Stay safe!

    Bingo is popular around here, and a few departments have had luck with Texas Hold-em tournaments. Several departments also have carnivals and sell Christmas trees during that time.

    Raffles, especially if you can get quality items donated, or even at cost.

    Advertising on apparatus.

    We do Brat Frys throughout the summer, and have an annual Haunted Hill that we run for two weekends in October.
