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.

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.
