Raising money for charity is always a commendable and important thing. You’ve got to understand that you are doing something really great to help others. It’s a great way of having fun, keeping competitive, and raising some cash for great causes.
Raffles should be part and parcel of any fundraiser, and paintballing is no different. Just because you’re paintballing doesn’t mean you can’t hold a raffle during the day. Get people to donate items, and try to get prizes that are as great as possible. This will help you sell more tickets and raise more cash.
You also should look at how to sell as many tickets as you can for the event. Try to make it as competitive as possible to attract buyers. You might also think about doing different ticket bands to make that little bit more money when selling. Do all you can to sell as many tickets as possible in advance. Make sure you take to social media and let people know that it’s a charity event.
Put on a BBQ or a buffet, or at least have a snack shack! That way people can purchase food and you can put all the proceeds towards charity. A BBQ is probably the best bet if you can get someone to man it for you. You could get a collection of people to bring the something each so you spread the responsibility and cost among you.
One of the best ways of making good money is through the idea of team sponsorship. You could hold a tournament and get businesses to sponsor teams for things they accomplish during the tournament. Try to think outside the box with team sponsorship as well. For instance, you don’t need to always get people to sponsor money. Some companies would rather donate clothes or goods, and that’s great as well.
