Spring Cleaning Fundraisers

Springtime brings warmer weather, and with it the opportunities to catch up on outdoor chores that the long winter months have kept at bay. Think of the area homeowners who would jump at the chance to have a little help getting the work done this spring. This is a great opportunity to host a service auction!
Spring Fundraiser
Here's how it works: local volunteers and businesses donate a service. Any donation will work. Some may offer specific services like lawn care or trash removal. Just a simple donation of time and labor from individuals to clean out gutters or weed flower gardens will bring great bids. Each offer is listed and auctioned off to the highest bidder, with proceeds going directly to your organization. The upside is the relatively low overhead cost, making this fundraiser nearly 100% profit.

Make the service auction fun and festive. Get into spring! Give the occasion the ambience of an old fashioned spring bazaar. Ask a few volunteers to donate a dozen homemade cookies each and serve lemonade. Seek out a local auction service for a donation of time to give the auction an authentic feel.

Springtime Car Wash Warmer weather is the perfect time to hold a fundraising car wash at a local business. Fast food restaurants commonly open up their parking lot space to non-profits for car washes. Take a clue from the cheerleading booster clubs and make large, colorful signs to attract drivers to the car wash. Be sure to encourage volunteers to be seen and attract as many car wash customers as possible!
Ask local car washes or grocery stores for donations of soap, sponges, and cleaners. Hunt around for buckets and other supplies. Be sure everyone comes in play clothes and has a lot of fun!

Did You Know?

  • Spring is the best time to prune evergreen plants. Be sure to use a light touch; over-pruning in the growth season causes overgrowth on top, robbing the bottom layers of the plant of necessary sunlight.
  • The idea that peonies need ants to help them grow is just an old wives' tale. Ants like to snack on the sap in an unopened bloom, but do nothing to encourage the plant to flower.
FastTrack Fundraising is committed to helping school groups, sport teams, churches, and nonprofit organizations reach their fundraising goals with easy fundraising ideas.
