Run a Fundraising Campaign
Every year, Winnipeg workplaces, schools and churches come together to raise money for LITE’s Alternative Christmas Hampers and Community Grants Program. Over the years, LITE fundraising campaigns have not only raised thousands of dollars in support of community economic development in Winnipeg’s inner city, but have also become increasingly creative with their fundraising ideas.
Past workplace and school campaigns have raised money for LITE by holding a beard growing contest and by selling baking, used books, organic plants, and homemade candles!
Some more fun LITE campaign ideas include:
* Chili Cook-off (fee for entering and/or participants can collect pledges)
*Pie Throwing Auction (get your boss to agree to a pie in the face for a good cause & highest bidder gets to throw it!)
* Mini-Gala Dinner Party (have friends donate what they would pay to eat out!)
*Antique Auction (collect donated antiques & auction them off)
*Garage Sale (collect unused household items to sell in a garage sale – community centres are a great garage sale venue for winter months)
Would you like to involve your friends and co-workers in what LITE is doing? Help organize a fundraising campaign at your workplace, church, or school! Contact us… and we will provide you with information and materials to get started!
