Imagine what your fraternity could do with another $5,000 to $10,000. By implementing the following fraternity fundraising program – your fraternity can easily exceed that amount!
Fraternity fundraisers at restaurants are growing in popularity. They require no overhead, and are very profitable. Let me explain.
This is one of the more brilliant fundraising ideas I have ever heard. Every spring, college students are moving out of the dorms and apartments to head back home for summer. Most of the time, a ton of great stuff gets thrown away in the process. This situation can become a great fraternity fundraiser.
I got this idea from a good buddy of mine. An organization he belongs to raffles off a motorcycle each year. His organization has about 200 people, and everyone is required to sell 20, $10 raffle tickets. That means that this fundraiser will gross $40,000.
College football games are the ideal place for a fraternity fundraiser. Before the game, there are literally thousands of people there tailgating and getting drunk. That combination seems to create more impulse buying – the ideal situation for a fraternity fundraiser.
Statistically, there is really only one way that a fraternity brother will die – and that is being killed in a drunk-driving accident. Your fraternity has the responsibility to protect the brotherhood from their own stupidity. Therefore, a DD program should be established.
Every fraternity should have a drink machine. A used one can be bought for about $1000. However, this one-time expense will lead to years of profit for the fraternity.
There is decent money to be made from a website that has a lot of traffic. Your fraternity website has that potential as well. You can add adds to your site and profit off your content. You can also solicit local businesses to put ads on your site. There is truly a lot of potential there.
Another simple fundraiser for your fraternity is by putting on a 3 on 3 basketball tournament. All you need to do is put together a double elimination tournament where the winner gets a decent prize. The hardest part is finding the teams to play, but that actually shouldn’t be too difficult.
This is a great example of how your fraternity can have a very profitable fundraiser by having a raffle.
