5 Last Minute Fundraising Ideas for Mother’s Day

By: Brittany Engelmann-- 2017-05-02 6:00 am --

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and it’s a great holiday to base your spring fundraiser around. If you haven’t planned one yet, it’s not too late!

Here are 5 last minute fundraising ideas for Mother’s Day to help get your creative juices flowing.

Make a donation on Mom’s honor

This is an easy idea and can be pulled together quickly. Ask your supporters to make a donation in their mother’s name, via email and social media. In return, send Mom a special recognition email or card. If you plan to send physical cards, be sure to have them designed and ready to go with a cut-off date for sending.

Host a Mother’s Day brunch

Mother’s Day brunch can be done in a variety of ways.

Partner with a local restaurant to host a Mother’s Day brunch for your organization. One thing to keep in mind is that while restaurant fundraisers aren’t always a huge money maker, they can be a great way to get face-time with your donors and educate others about your mission.

Another option for a Mother’s Day brunch is to host your own event at your nonprofit or another venue. Find a local caterer to partner with and invite your supporters to come enjoy a fabulous Mother’s Day brunch as a family.

Partner with a Spa

All moms love a day of pampering. Partner with a local spa, masseuse or salon to drive business to their establishment, with a percentage of proceeds for the day going back to your organization.

When you approach potential partners for your fundraiser, have a plan in place to show them how you’ll promote the event to your supporters.

Do all the hard work for the businesses you approach. The more developed your idea is when you present to potential partners, the more likely they will be to participate.

Day of service as a family

Plan a service day and invite your supporters to attend as a family. Organize an event that relies on families working together to achieve something tangible that they can be proud of.

Whether you’re nonprofit is a soup kitchen, land trust, animal shelter, or something else entirely, there is likely something that your supporters and their families could do for your organization while spending the day together.
