There’s no shortage of charitable groups and organizations that work tirelessly to make our world a better place. But no matter how important the mission, organizations like these rely on money to help achieve these goals and sustain their message. We believe raising money through food related fundraising campaigns is one of the best ways to accomplish this goal.

Take for example Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. At the time of writing, the Boy Scouts was incorporated 110 years ago with the Girl Scouts being only a couple short years behind. During this time both organizations have used food items as a primary method to raise money for their groups. Girls Scouts with cookies of course and the Boy Scouts with popcorn. Both have tried selling other food products over the years including nuts and trail mix as well.

But using food to raise money isn’t exclusive to the Girl Scouts. Churches regularly hold annual bake sales to raise funds for people in need. These events are particularly popular around Christmas and other holidays. Not only can selling baked goods help raise money for a worthwhile cause, but they can be a blast to participate in as well.

Fundraising campaigns like these bring together a community and help those in need. Below are some creative name ideas we came up with for your next charitable event.

What are the most profitable fundraisers?

Bake sales are a terrific way to raise funds.

As much as we all want to help out, putting up a fundraising event can be quite a challenge. It’s especially so if you’re going for a non-profit fundraiser campaign because you’ll need to think of a project that won’t give you too many expenses and will probably rely on volunteers to do most of the work. .

But if you’re looking for a profitable fundraiser, events are the way to go. Events such as dinners, galas, concerts, fun runs, bike-a-thons, or walk-a-thons usually reel in a lot of participants which would therefore lead to this event being profitable.

In today’s environment, virtual events can also help you raise money. In fact, hosting a virtual event can actually help you achieve bigger monetary goals since you’ve got a potentially global audience that help support the foundation. Another advantage of hosting a virtual event is there’s no space you need to rent out. This brings down the cost to near $0 in many cases. Some proven online fundraising ideas include:

  • Online summits: Gather thought leaders together to discuss a certain topic. Charge a small fee for those that attend.
  • Concerts: Ask a local musician to share their talents virtually. Ask for donations for folks that attend.
  • Trainings: Bring in an expert to teach folks how to do something. The topic could range from cooking classes to career advice or investing.
  • Online Bake Sale: Take the traditional bake sale and bring it into the 21st century. You could display and describe each cupcake or pie you plan to sell on a Zoom call.

Another event to think about that is considered profitable is an auction. You can auction out art and other antiques. These auctions can be held online or offline successfully. Proven approaches to raising funds with an auction also include getting signed memorabilia from athletes. Whenever possible, try to get the products you sell to match up with goal or topic of your group.

Another way to get things to sell at an auction is to organize a collection drive. A collection drive is the same model that Good Will uses. You ask for people to contribute their old stuff like bicycles, televisions and clothes for free. Then you turn around and sell it. This model generates lower profits as compared to the ones mentioned above.

At the end of the day, all of the fundraising approaches mentioned in this post can work. Plus, you’ll be doing your part to make a positive imprint on the world. So choose a name from our list and get started!
