Many charities and individuals are looking for innovative ways to reach donors and manage projects. Good fundraisers include Karaoke Night, a Scrabble tournament, and even a “Don’t Come Event,” where you issue tickets for a fabulous event that’s not actually going to happen.
An even better fundraising idea is 50:50 raffles, where the prize is half the takings. Cookbooks also do well as fundraisers, and novel events such as snail racing are fun and interesting ways to make money.
Perhaps the best fundraising idea is to sign up with a crowdfunding website, such as the one started by Joe Wakeford and his childhood buddy, Conrad Watts, recently in the Czech Republic. The two men unveiled Fondomat, giving users the opportunity to raise money quickly and effectively in the Czech currency. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, artist or someone who just wants to raise funds for a trip abroad, once you live in the Czech Republic, Fondomat is worth a second and even third look.
In order to maximise users’ fundraising potential, Fondomat is fully integrated with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google+. In this way, users are connected to their entire social network from a single source.
Crowdfunding has been proven around the world to be by far the most powerful and cost effective way to raise money for literally anything conceivable… The future of fundraising has arrived.
