2 Great Fraternity Fundraising Ideas
Want to raise capital without all the stress? Consider the following fundraising campaigns:
#1: Golf Tournament
Having a golf tournament as a fundraiser is both a great time and can help raise your fraternity a lot of money. The goal here is to make it a big event, with as much buzz as possible. The more people that come the better. A good place to start is with friends and family. If you can get just one or two influential alumni to become interested in the event, a snowball effect often occurs where they invite others and before you know it you have lots of potential donors at the event. A golf tournament is a relatively simple event that can make a seriously good fundraiser.
Pro Tip: ALWAYS make sure you have a beverage cart available, even if the course requires a corking fee.
#2: Frat House Renovations
Okay, now one for some serious fundraising. While a golf tournament can help raise a few grand, a frat house renovation fundraiser is going to be hundreds of thousand or even millions of dollars. No matter how many golf tournaments you have, they’re unlikely to raise that kind of money. For a frat house renovation fundraiser to succeed, you shouldn’t just go it alone. Partner with Elevate IMS to make your serious fundraising goals happen. We have countless past fundraising success stories — with some raising nearly $4 million.
