Whether you’re fundraising for the arts community or looking to think outside the box, here are some fundraising ideas with an arts and music focus.
You can fundraise with SYNE for the below community activity with least cost platform fees. SYNE also helps you build your own fans community.
Venue-specific dance performance — Dancers perform an originally choreographed piece that tells the story of your venue, which may or may not be aligned to your cause. For example, a ticket purchase gives donors the chance to watch the show and learn more about that particular farm.
Theatre — Consider partnering with a local theatre company willing to provide the venue, equipment, props, and costumes. Or, arrange to have profits from one of their normal performances go to your cause.
Photo exhibition — Have participants contribute photographs they’ve taken that relate to your charity. Have an art opening where event-goers buy a ticket to attend, than auction off the photos.
Craft fair — Get a bunch of artisans on board and charge tickets at the door. This idea is perfect for the holidays, when people are keen to buy unique, original gifts for their loved ones.
Haircut party — Find a local salon whose stylists are willing to donate their time for just one day to giving haircuts. Customers pay what they think their haircut is worth, and all of the money goes to your cause.
Film screening — Is there a documentary related to your cause? Host a night at the movies replete with popcorn and candy.
Battle of the bands — Invite some local guitar heroes and give your donors a chance to support your cause and enjoy the performance.
Talent search — How many of us have rock-n-roll dreams? Here’s everyone’s chance to try out for a band. “The band” is one you’ll put together for this event, with the grand prize a chance to perform at a local venue.
Karaoke contest — Recruit a local celebrity or two to judge participants willing to put themselves out there, The Voice-style.
Host a gig — Ask your talented donors to donate their talent or even host their own gig.
