Fundraisers can be a lot of fun to coordinate and/or host.  It can be a wonderful experience and all of the efforts go toward helping those in need.  Here are some great fundraising ideas. Let us know of any other great ideas or what you might want to host for DIVA/DIVO.

•  Ask 10 of your closest friends to donate $50 - $1,000 depending on their income and what they can afford.

•  Host a wine and cheese party and take a collection.  You can combine a party that you were planning to have into a
   fundraiser for a good cause…just let people know in advance that it is a fundraiser so that they know what to expect.

•  Local music is always a draw.  If you can find a band or musical group to donate their time and a venue for the performance, you can put on a great show and fundraiser at the same time.  Don’t be afraid to ask a performance group to donate a show…they might say yes.

•  Sell frequent flyer miles and donate the proceeds.  Check with the airlines for rules and regulations.

•  Some businesses/corporations have a matching gift program.  If you work with your business, they might match or double what you can collect from co-workers and other employees.  DIVA/DIVO will be happy to send you information or arrange to do a presentation for your employees and employers. 

•  Neighborhood organizations, businesses, schools or churches might be willing to work with you on a fundraising project.

•  Block parties, car washes and bake sales are fun & easy to set up.  It’s something the family and/or neighborhood can do together.
