Church Fundraisers

									Church Fundraisers
Churches are non-profit organizations that resort to fundraising to
support various activities. Churches do not use the funds you donate to
support their operations. The money required to maintain church
operations mostly comes from tithes and other donations by parishioners.
Fundraisers are usually necessary to finance other activities such as
evangelistic meetings, outreach programs, youth camps, and repairing of
church buildings.
The most common church fundraising activities are cookouts or bake sales.
Participants set up booths for the organizers to sell food products and
donate either all the proceeds or a percentage of the proceeds to the
church. The usual items sold are pies, cheesecakes, candles, or candies.
Selling products door-to-door is an alternative option if there is no
venue available.
Service fundraisers can be enjoyable for participants and patrons. Try a
car wash service, where the church patrons can bring vehicles for
washing.
Auctions or raffles are a great way for parishioners to get involved in
fundraising because they provide an incentive for those who donate to a
cause. Ask sponsors to donate auction items or prizes.
You can also sell T-shirts that bear the name of your church or Bible
verses. Religion-themed clothing and accessories promote the work of the
church. Simple boutiques can also be set up to sell other items like
books or magazines, DVDs and audio CDs, or decorative ornaments that
promote spirituality.
Fundraising activities within the church can be a fun activity, but there
are times that it is unnecessary. Churches have been a venue wherein God
can and will pour out His blessing. Although fundraising activity is a
service you can do for the Lord, sometimes it is the best to simply pray
and ask for the needs of the church.
