Halloween Funds Are Spooky Fun!

Halloween Fundraising Kids

Why let the kids have all the fun come October? There are plenty of ways for your organization to celebrate the Halloween spirit while raising funds -- just remember to wear your costume when you're out there. Some proven Halloween-themed fundraisers include:

Halloween Ball: Everyone loves a costume party, so why not have one for a good cause? A Halloween Ball is an easy sell to the community, regardless of whether it's family-oriented or for adults. There are a number of ways to raise funds with a Halloween Ball. The easiest way is to charge an admission fee, but you can always be creative with this -- admission can be free with a costume to generate publicity and get more people in the door. A donation table is a must at any party, regardless of theme, but other things that can raise funds include raffles, a costume contest, and various games and booths (tickets to join in are an easy sell). Don't forget the scary music!

Trick-or-Funding: For kids, Halloween's exciting because they get to go trick-or-treating. You can use this same spirit with a trick-or-funding team. During daytime hours (don't interfere with the kiddies' fun at night!), get staff members to dress up in a costume  related to your organization and go door to door. When the door opens, say, "Trick-or-fund!" and offer a brief explanation of what your organization does and how funds are used. If you have any brochures or collateral, this would be a great time to use it. You'll be surprised at how lively people will be in giving donations, especially if the costumes are good!

Haunted House: Give the community a scare with a haunted house fundraiser! Unlike Halloween parties or balls, a haunted house can run for a few days or even a few weeks, and it's a lot of fun! Find a venue -- perhaps even your organization's office -- and get decorations at party stores and drug stores, dress up staff and volunteers, and pump up the scary music and sounds. Oh, and don't forget to charge admission and have a donation table to collect funds!
