Fundraise for Enliven
Every day people just like you are fundraising for causes they are passionate about. Their support makes a big difference.
“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.”
“We collected presents and made cards for the residents at Levin Home who wouldn’t be seeing their family on Christmas Day. Some of the residents don’t have any family, so it’s nice to see the staff make it such a special day at the home and we wanted to help too.”
There are many fun and exciting ways you can support Enliven and raise much needed funds. Here are a few ideas.
Have a garage sale
You know what they say – one person’s trash is another’s treasure. Consider getting rid of your unwanted clutter by having a garage sale on behalf of Enliven. 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.
Run a raffle or sausage sizzle
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.
School or workplace mufti day
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?
Run an event
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.
Do an event
Feeling active? Take part in a fun run, triathlon or even an ‘odd-jobs’ marathon and collect donations on behalf of PSC.
Give something up
Ask people to sponsor you for giving up something for a period of time. No internet for a week? No chocolate for a month?
