This week is Wellbeing Week – And well worth celebrating!
We thought we would collate some fundraising ideas that incorporate events and fundraisers that fit in well with wellbeing and health. What better combination is there than a bit of wellbeing whilst raising funds for your worthy cause?
Wellbeing Themed Fundraising Ideas
Here are some of our favourite fundraising ideas that would fit in well with Wellbeing Week.
Partnerships with Holistic Therapists
Any kind of business generally wants to be seen as caring about their local community – It helps them as much as it helps you! Don’t be afraid to ask for partnerships with local holistic therapists – Think reflexologists, masseurs, etc. Ask if they could offer some relaxation packages? Think reflexology, massages, facials. If you can make a job lot by combining a few different treatments in one tempting package then even better! They could help with something as simple as a collection box by their point of sale, or even a day per month where a percentage of their takings go towards your cause! They may also be able to sponsor some of your fundraising events by offering their services as auction lots.
It’s well known that being in nature and taking care of lovely green plants is good for the soul and can be a boost for wellbeing. It’s so rejuvenating to watch something grow! This fundraiser takes a little more forethought as you need to plant the seeds in advance. But once they’re planted, all you have to do is nurture them into seedlings ready to sell. Growing your own vegetables saw a big boom during lockdown – Give people a head start and start their tomatoes off for them.
A change is as good as a rest, as they say! There’s not one person that couldn’t do with a weekend away from it all. And what better than a trip that’s completely organised for you! Ask a local Hotel or Air BnB Host if they could donate a weekend away for your worthy cause. The more luxurious and quirky the better! It’s bound to get the bids piling in.
Gym Membership with Personal Training
Get those endorphins flowing with a spot of focused exercise with an expert. Can you put a price on health and fitness as a means to good general wellbeing? Well, probably, but if you can team up with a local gym to create a one-of-a-kind gym membership plus access to a personal trainer to show you the ropes then we think you’re onto a winner.
Dancing is such a feel good activity! Whether your supporters are dancing extraordinaire or just fancy a bit of a boogie, this could be a great way to get moving and fundraise.
There’s nothing like a good belly laugh to boost your wellbeing! Always try and ask for a reduced fee so you can make as much money as possible from ticket sales, rather than using it to pay the band. Entertainers are more likely to agree to a lower fee if it’s not in peak times ie. not on a Saturday in August or December where they could be making big bucks at weddings and Christmas parties.
Nature is so soothing for the soul. Detail a nature walk in your local area and either charge to do a guided walk, or sell maps so people can do it in their own time.
Digital Fundraising is easy to Integrate with Donater
Here at Donater we have a suite of fundraising tools specifically designed to make giving easier. Easier for the donor to make a donation, and easier for charitable organisations to receive that all-important fundraising.
Our suite of online fundraising tools include:
A dedicated online fundraising page, personalised to your charity or good cause. Supporters will immediately recognise your branding and thus, trust that they are in the right place to make a donation. Online fundraising pages are easy to share online via a handy link, and can be easily linked to your website with a ‘Donate Now’ button.
QR codes. We’ve all become more accustomed to QR codes over the last couple of years, so you’ll know how quick and easy it is to scan one with your smartphone. QR codes can be just as handy for taking donations. All your supporter has to do is scan the QR code with their smartphone, and it will take them to an online donation page. Once there, they can choose to donate with a tap via Google Pay or Apple Pay, or pay with their bank details. QR codes are a great addition to any physical marketing about your event, such as posters or newsletters as well as transforming a traditional donation box into a mobile way of taking digital donations.
NFC Tags. Our NFC tags take the above QR code concept a step further, and enable any supporter of yours with an NFC enabled smartphone to merely tap the tag or sticker. They will then be taken to an online donation page where they can make their donation quickly and simply. These work better with in-person events, but could easily be placed at the entrance to your charity or on collection boxes so visitors can donate to your cause if they wish.
