Ready to learn more? Here are just a few of the benefits of launching event fundraising campaigns at Bonfire:
Event fundraising has never been easier
The internet has made it easier to do just about everything - including fundraising. Today, some of the most successful fundraisers are started online. A good online fundraiser makes it easy for a contributor to learn about the event and contribute to the campaign. With BonfireFunds.com, anyone who wants to contribute to your event can do so in just minutes. T-shirts can be purchased from the comfort of your office chair or the convenience of your smartphone. The easier it is to donate to your event fundraiser, the more likely people are to donate to your campaign.
Reward contributors with something they’ll actually use
Your fundraiser contributors should be rewarded for their efforts. So why are you giving them a poorly-designed t-shirt that they’ll never actually wear? At BonfireFunds.com, we firmly believe in giving contributors a useful, wearable t-shirt that looks good in any size. That's why we've built an easy-to-use, custom t-shirt designer. You don't need any design experience to create a snazzy design using our design tool. With thousands of custom images and graphics to use (or upload you own) and tons of fonts and colors available, your creative juices will be flowing in no time.
We send you the proceeds
After the costs of creating the t-shirts have been covered, we send 100% of the t-shirt proceeds directly to you. There are no hidden fees or additional charges. We understand that every penny counts when it comes to event fundraising, and our system is designed to funnel as much money to you as possible. With the help of BonfireFunds.com, event planners have been able to raise thousands of dollars in fundraising.
You never buy inventory, so there’s no risk
When you’re planning an event, there’s a certain amount of risk involved. You’ll have to purchase event materials in advance and book a venue, among other costs. Fundraising should never be one of those sunk costs. With our unique fundraising system, the t-shirts are not actually created until your fund ends and you've reached the minimum sales needed to print (as low as 5 shirts). This system reduces the risk of all parties involved and ensures that you - the event planner - are never left with unsold inventory. If you don't reach your minimum needed to print, your supporters are not charged and your shirts aren't produced.
Custom shirts for any event
BonfireFunds.com can be used to raise funds for any type of event. Our fundraising campaigns range from adoption fundraisers to school trip fundraisers. Our goal is to raise funds for any worthy cause, and our custom shirt design tool was created just for that...to design a t-shirt that is perfect for your event. No matter which type of event you’re trying to plan - from family reunions to charity concerts - BonfireFunds.com can help make sure that event is a success.
Spread and share your event as easily as possible
When fundraising for an event, t-shirt sales may be used as a type of ticket to get into the event. This gives you an easy way to see how many people are interested in the event while also receiving a confirmed cash contribution for each attendee. You can easily spread and share your event to as many people as possible. Simply post the URL on Facebook, Twitter, forums, and whatever other sites you want and get ready to watch fundraising contributions pour in. It’s a great way to raise funds while telling people about your event at the same time.
A comfortable t-shirt they’ll wear more than once
How many charity t-shirts do you have in your dresser? You may feel guilty about throwing these t-shirts out, but the t-shirts aren’t comfortable or stylish enough to wear for any occasion. Instead of giving your hardworking contributors a gift that they’ll never wear, give them something they’ll wear long after your event is over. Bonfire t-shirts are famously comfortable. If you generate a lot of t-shirt sales before an event, your team of contributors can act as guerrilla marketers when they wear your t-shirt around town.
Event Fundraising Ideas
Are you trying to raise money in support of an event? Many events rely on fundraising in order to be successful. From concerts to charity dinners, there are a number of different types of event fundraising available today.
Looking for creative fundraising opportunities for an upcoming event? Whether you’re a non-profit organization or a charity group, here are a few ideas to get you started:
Host a charity dinner: Sometimes the best event fundraisers are the events themselves. Host a charity dinner and charge guests per plate. You can increase the fundraising potential of the event by hosting a raffle or auction. Keep guests happy, well-fed, and entertained and they’re sure to have a good night out.
Plan your event around significant dates: No matter what time of year it is, there’s always some special event going on. You can throw a Superbowl Party, for example, if your event is in February.
Organize a fun run or charity marathon: Running is one of the oldest forms of human competition. A fun run is an excellent way to raise money for any type of event. It can be something as short as a 5K or a longer half-marathon or full marathon. Whatever you choose to do, you can ask runners to raise money from friends and family members. Consider awarding a prize to the winner, or just donate all proceeds directly to charity.
Poker night: Competitive events tend to get the best response. Everybody loves charity nights where they actually get to participate, and poker nights are no exception. You don’t have to stick to poker, either; play other casino games and donate all the winnings to charity.
Car wash: Car wash charity events have been around for decades. You can approach charity car washes in a number of different ways: you can charge drivers per wash or give car washes away for free and ask for donations. You can also ask participants to gather pledge money based on the number of cars washed. For example, you can ask friends and family to donate $1 for every car washed during the charity event.
