Focus on Fundraising:
Easter

by Deane Brengle


Easter is a great opportunity to hold a fundraiser. There are many things you can do to raise money centered on this religious holiday.

Easter is a Christian religious holiday celebrating Christ's rising from the dead. Falls on a Sunday between March 21 and April 26 every year. This year it falls on April 15th.

Types of Fundraisers Suitable for Easter

  • Easter Breakfast or Brunch

    This isn't for the little kids (although they are welcome too) but for the adults and young adults. Should be planned for either before or after church (or maybe both) to take advantage of the holiday atmosphere. When people are all dressed up it gives them a good reason to go out and eat. Advertise in area church bulletins if you can.

  • Easter Egg Hunt

    Make sure and advertise your Easter Egg Hunt as a charity fundraising event so people won't think it's free. Make sure and give them lots for their money like a huge egg hunt, photos with the Easter Bunny, egg toss, candy, prizes, games, face painting, costumed characters, music and entertainment. Can be combined with the Easter Breakfast or Brunch with the Easter Bunny below.

  • Easter Breakfast or Brunch with the Easter Bunny

    An event designed for the kids and their parents. Make sure you have plenty of food kids love to eat. Can be combined with the Easter Egg Hunt above.

  • Selling Chocolate Easter Bunnies, Plants and Flowers

    Selling chocolate Easter bunny, Easter Lilies and flowers can be a good fundraiser if you have a ready audience. Selling by order form before Easter with advance payment will cut down on surplus items after the sale. Selling to a captive audience like your church members will increase your sales.

  • Jelly Bean Guess

    Guess how many jelly beans are in a basket or a large glass egg. Each guess may cost a dollar or two and the correct answer will win a prize (donated of course).
