“We raised money and collected new toys and presents for kids who wouldn’t be getting Christmas presents, then Family Works delivered them in time for Christmas day. We know it put a huge smile on their faces.”
“Our church group held a concert to raise money for the local rest home. It was lots of fun and truly rewarding to see the residents having a lovely time because of the money we raised.”
There are many fun and exciting ways you can support Presbyterian Support Central raise much needed funds. Here are a few ideas.
You know what they say – one person’s trash is another treasure. Consider getting rid of your unwanted clutter by having a garage sale on behalf of Presbyterian Support Central. If you don’t think you have enough to have your own garage sale – consider selling items on Trade Me or getting a group of people together.
Raffles and sausage sizzles as fundraisers have been around for a long time…because they work! Consider approaching local businesses for prizes, vouchers or food. They’re often very willing to help out a good cause, and it’s great publicity for them too! Remember, raffles and lotteries with a prize worth $500 or more need a special license from the Department of Internal Affairs.
Run a mufti day where people make a donation to take part…and an even bigger donation not to! You can make it as extreme as you like – wear your PJs to work day anyone?
Organise an event and ask people to make a donation in exchange for a ticket. Quiz nights, movie nights and silent auctions are always popular. Approach local businesses to ask for their support, sponsorship or donations of product, a venue or time.
Feeling active? Take part in a fun run, triathlon or even an ‘odd-jobs’ marathon and collect donations on behalf of PSC
Ask people to sponsor you for giving up something for a period of time. No internet for a week? No chocolate for a month?
