There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the money roll in and knowing you’ve worked hard to earn it. But it does help if it was both quick and easy to earn that money. Because these fundraisers aren’t your job. (Maybe they could be, but that’s another question for another time.) Maybe something came up — a family injury or other emergencies like a fire or car accident. And if you already have a day job, you won’t have much time left to fundraise to make up for the loss. That’s why the world is in need of quick fundraising ideas for individuals. Solo fundraising ideas that really rake in the dough, without much effort.
Many people raising money for disasters and tragedies often have much of their time consumed by that tragedy and its aftermath, so how can they raise money to pay for it too?
First of all, don’t forget about Go Fund Me. It’s a great fundraiser for personal use. If your story is believable enough and your page is shared with a wide enough audience, it’s possible to make big bucks from that. But no one gets anything back from the money they put into Go Fund Me. Yes, that’s the point of donations, but fundraisers allow customers to not only give to a worthy cause but get something back for themselves. Whether that’s a coupon card, a calendar or a candy bar, it’s something. And if you fundraise by selling the right items, you’re bound to hit it off.
