Host Your Own Fundraiser!
Gather friends, family and co-workers for a fun event in support of The Family Resource Network. Popular fundraisers in the past have included concerts, bar or restaurant outing, bake sales, etc. We will gladly provide any information or promotional materials you may need for a successful event. Don’t forget to share your success and photos from the event with us and we’ll include you in our monthly e-zines!
In 2011, .96 cents of every dollar donated to The Family Resource Network went directly to programs and services. Feel confident in donating the money you worked so hard to raise, we will spend it wisely to support individuals in NJ with special needs and their families.
Use the following ideas to start planning your own event:
Throw a Party
- Dinner/Dessert Party: Invite friends and family over for dinner/dessert and ask them to make a donation equal to what they would have paid for a dinner/dessert at a local restaurant. Local restaurants and bakeries may be willing to donate items for your event.
- Theme Party: Celebrate a birthday, anniversary or any holiday with a theme party and ask everyone who attends to make a donation.
Coordinate a Sporting Event or Tournament
Tennis, Golf, bowl-a thons, dance-a-thons and other sports can all be set up as events or tournaments with all proceeds from entry fees, refreshments and silent auctions going to The Family Resource Network.
Collect donated items from local businesses and host a live or silent auction.
Hold a car wash in the parking lot of a local supermarket or large shopping center with all funds raised directed toward The Family Resource Network. Please be sure to get prior approval from an establishment prior to hosting or advertising a car wash.
Ask your friends and family to donate items to your yard sale. Since all proceeds from the sale would be benefitting The Family Resource Network, you will be surprised by how generous people can be. You can even sell refreshments at the event to raise additional money.
Make arrangements with a high traffic store such as the Home Depot, Lowes or grocery store to stand in front of the establishment and collect money for The Family Resource Network.
