Are you looking for fundraising event ideas?
Special days and holidays give all sorts of opportunities for a great fundraiser.
They provide inspiration for fantastic charity event ideas and convenient hooks around which you can raise money for the causes close to your heart.
With a bit of work well known special days such as Easter, Valentines, Halloween can become great money-makers for your organisation.
But do not overlook either some of the other quirky little days of the year.
The year is full of these sorts of days.
Is your school, church, hospice or local hospital named after a saint?
And you're not using that saint's day for a fundraiser? What's wrong with you?
The calendar is stuffed full of great excuses to put on an entirely new event or add a twist to something you are already doing. Pretty much any day can be turned into a brilliant event if you use a bit of imagination.
Still can't find a date for an idea that works for you?
Invent one of your own. What about:
Give it a year or two and any of these could become a regular fixture on your town's social calendar.
So take a good look at the diary and look for a day that's just begging for a crack fundraising team like yours to get their hands on it.
