Easy Fundraising Ideas for Senior Community Centers

easy fundraising ideas for senior community centersAccording to Pew Research Center figures, the number of older Americans who use the internet has increased greatly. Thus, senior community centers may want to consider utilizing the internet in their fundraising efforts. With that said, here are a few easy fundraising ideas to consider:

Add a Big Donate Now Button

One of the first steps senior community centers may want to consider taking is adding a big Donate Now button to their website. There are various crowdfunding platforms that may be used in that regard. The button will allow online supporters to make financial contributions to the center.

Online Fundraising

Another option is to consider engaging in a no-cost, risk-free online fundraiser, such as healthy meals fundraising. Unlike other online fundraising efforts, it can help senior community centers in several ways. For starters, it will help put healthy foods into the hands of seniors. Considering that statistics show obesity and diabetes problems are prevalent among seniors, that’s a very good thing. Because of the way the fundraising program is set up, they also eliminate financial risk, delivery-related problems and the need for travel expenditures.

Another benefit of healthy meals fundraising is how it can easily be incorporated into the center’s regular schedule and administrative activities. For example, center staff could offer weekly exercise classes and weight loss education that include segments on nutrition. A portion of those segments could be used to discuss the center’s healthy meals fundraising efforts.

In addition, links to the center’s healthy meals fundraising custom webpage could be shared ineasy fundraising ideas for senior community centers a variety of ways. For instance, the link could be placed onto the center’s main website and included in e-mail correspondence. It could also be passed along via the center’s social media sites (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram) and QR-Codes.
