Fundraising Ideas

  •  Fundraising night at local cafe or bar/Cocktail Party- Bars, winery's and brewery’s often host fundraising nights of either a percentage of the sales or $1 from each drink.
  • Wine Tasting or cider pressing event
  •  Mini-Raffle/ auction
  •  50/50 Raffle
  • Cake walk: think of musical chairs, the cake with the corresponding number that is drawn from a hat is won: entry fee to participate
  •  White elephant/ Treasure chest raffle
  • Corporate Sponsorship of your build day
  • Peer-Peer Team fundraising or crowdfunding challenge- This website has some great examples
  •  Buy a board- Buy a quantity of 2x4's, and, for a suggested donation allow your friends, family, congregation, etc to write a message of encouragement and hope to the Habitat family on it. We will then use it in the construction of the home.
  •  Furniture Drive- "Stuff the Truck" Habitat for Humanity will park their truck at a site of your choosing, and donations; items generally sold at the Habitat store, will be accepted.
  •  Furniture decoration/painting to then raffle off -
  •   Community BBQ (outdoor movie/music night?)
  •   Spaghetti Dinner /Pancake breakfast/ ice cream social
  •  Car/desk smash: have an old beat up car or an old desk you need to get rid of? Charge your friends a fee to smash it with a baseball bat (thereby relieving some of their stress). Then call Cars for Homes at (877) 277-4344! They will pick up your car free of charge!
  • Bake sale/ flower sale/ lunch sale
  •  Bowling evening
  •  Cornhole (or other game) tournament- Check out the one done by the High Five Foundation here.
  •  Summer field day- Kids and adults- wheelbarrow race, three-legged race, egg toss, etc.
  •   Drive in Movie night
  •   Services for hire- Such as yard work
