Types of Fundraisers

The possibilities are endless when coming up with ideas for fundraisers!  From lemonade stands to tributes and memorials, you can host a fundraiser for the Texas LODD Task Force and help Texas first responders and their families.Your fundraisers play an important role in the philanthropic efforts at Texas LODD Task Force. They build awareness and they raise the funds that help provide the operational support we need to provide our services to the many individuals we serve each year. 

Looking to brainstorm a new way to raise money for Texas LODD Task Force? These are some event ideas supporters have used in the past:

  • In Honor of...:  A fundraiser is a way to honor a person or celebrate an important event or milestone like a birthday, graduations or bar/bat mitzvah. You can opt for donations in lieu of gifts and use your Texas LODD Task Force fundraising campaign to tell people about what they are doing and collect donations. 

  • Spare Change: Ask your favorite restaurant or local pub to put out a jar for donations of spare change. Decorate it with quotes and pictures of first responders. Ask them to display the jar somewhere it will get plenty of attention.

  • A Big Favor: In lieu of giving a favor at a wedding, birthday party or similar event, let guests know you’ve made a donation to Texas LODD Task Force in their name.

  • Haircut-a-Thon: Ask your hair stylist to host a haircut-a-thon, where he or she accepts donations for Texas LODD Task Force in lieu of payment.

  • Get to Work: Offer your services shoveling snow, mowing grass, running errands, etc., in exchange for donations.

  • Donation Location: Get permission to set up a table in front of your grocery store to collect donations. This is a very effective way to raise both funds and awareness. 

  • Lemonade Stand: Get your kids or neighbors involved and have them feel like they are joining you as you make a difference.

  • Garage Sale: Ask friends and neighbors to donate items to sell. Make signs indicating that all proceeds are going to Texas LODD Task Force. Add a straight donation jar, too.

  • Benefit Night: Throw a fundraising party at a local establishment, such as a restaurant or bar. Charge your guests an entrance fee (donation). Ask the business to support you with a donation of 10% (or more!) of the night’s sales. You can offer to generate a flyer to promote patrons coming to their establishment to help increase their business, and thus your percentage.

  • Theme Dinner or Wine-Tasting Party: Hold a party for 10 of your friends with a donation of $50 a person. Spend just $20 per person on food and drinks and you’ve raised $300 in donations. Better yet, have everything donated!

  • Web-Based Auction: Ask friends and family to donate things for you to sell on an internet auction site. Make sure to let bidders know that the item’s selling price is going towards your fundraising for Texas LODD Task Force.

  • Personal Vending Machine: Purchase some of the office snack favorites in bulk (or better yet, have them donated), mark them up, and sell them from your desk for $1 or $2.

  • Loose Change Day at School: Ask your child’s school to hold a Loose Change Day. Make a flyer encouraging each child to bring in loose change to donate. Encourage math classes to assist with counting and rolling the change.
