  • A garage sale. Car wash. We had local bakery here that did a pie fundraiser for the cub scout pack at Thanksgiving, went over great.

  • A charity auction. Most of the local businesses would be happy to contribute items for a community auction. You could incorporate a bake sale, hourly raffles- everyone puts in a dollar for an hour/ gets ticket and at end of raffle, the winner can claim or donate the win. We did a taco feed. Local businesses donated the food, had a great day and raised alot of money. Face paint for kids, balloons, games etc. We sold tickets for games etc.

  • Our local VFD has a breakfast buffet once a month for a fundraiser, they charge $5 I think and a lot of the food items are donated.
