Month of May Fundraising Ideas

May Fundraising Ideas
Everyone knows the big fundraising holidays -- Fourth of July, Christmas, Halloween. A strong fundraising holiday is any well-known holiday with the potential for family gatherings or big community events. However, plenty of other lesser-known holidays can make for great fundraisers. If you're involved with one of the following types of organizations, here are some ways to plan some fundraisers in May:

Animal rescues: In May, the country celebrates National Pet Week. For animal rescues, you can take advantage of this by having all sorts of different pet-related fundraisers, such as pet photography, sales of animal-related charms and trinkets, and joint events with local pet stores. Not only will this raise funds, it'll bring awareness to your group's good cause.

Schools and teachers: May also has Teacher Appreciation Week, and you can bet that you can get more than just an apple for your teacher! This is a perfect opportunity for schools to have all sorts of different fundraisers, all with the goal of helping teachers get more money for better supplies, books, and class materials.

Triathlon and biking clubs: Did you know May is American Bike Month? From bike-a-thons to door-to-door sales, American Bike Month is a great way for clubs to raise funds for their organization. Some of the publicity and word-of-mouth promotion might even generate a few new members for the club, too!

Asian heritage groups: Cities with a Chinatown or Japantown community or have a large Asian population can celebrate May as National Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. In addition to cultural events and celebrations (with admission fees and contests doubling as fundraisers), sales of Asian-heritage items -- things that can be handcrafted or purchased in bulk -- can also generate a great amount of funds while educating the community on the beauty of Asian Pacific American heritage.
