Fundraising events represent an effective method to raise funds for your non-profit organization and increase the awareness for the cause you are supporting.
To boost the exposure of your organization, you should try and organize events frequently so you can attract new donors and supporters on a regular basis.
In this post, we want to try something different and give you a few fundraiser ideas for women you can try in the upcoming months to attract more females to your events. So, bookmark this post so you can review it whenever you run out of ideas.
Fundraiser Ideas for Women
1. Wine tasting
A wine tasting can be both educational and fun for the attendees. Aside from sipping some quality wine, the participants can also learn a few things about the assortments they are going to taste.
You can invite a wine connoisseur who can discuss and present the wine pairings. Make sure you do not forget about serving appetizers, such as cheese, crackers, and grapes.
For this type of event, you need to charge a fee for those who want to attend. A wine tasting represents a fantastic opportunity for women to bond with each other, even though they will meet for the first time that day.
2. Fashion show
You can never go wrong when organizing a fashion show when organizing a fundraiser for women. Women love shopping and discovering new brands or styles, so your event will be a hit.
You can team up with a local designer or a local boutique store so they can showcase and present their creations at the fashion show.
The important thing here is that the designer or the boutique will agree to donate a percentage of the sales towards your nonprofit organization.
For the models, you can use some of the members of your organization or ask around to see if some of your friends would be interested in helping out modeling the creations.
3. Dinner party
Dinner parties allow you to be as creative as you want. You can choose a specific theme for the event so the guests can dress up or in a certain color. You also need to consider picking a fancy location, delicious food and most importantly, the best entertainment.
To keep the guests engaged throughout the entire dinner party, you need to hire quality entertainment.
You have several options to choose from here: clean comedians, illusionists, visual arts performers, mentalists, jugglers, sand animation artists or inspirational speakers.
No matter which type of entertainment you choose, it is essential you pick someone your audience will enjoy.
Auctions represent one of the most popular fundraiser ideas for women. You can even ask organization members to contribute with items.
Establish a minimum bid for all the items before the event starts to the participants will know what to expect.
To attract women to the auction, try to find sponsors who can offer items in the form of experiences, such as spa and hair treatments, manicures, relaxing massage sessions, gym memberships or city breaks.
