Sample fundraising ideas to get you started
Dine and donate night
Ask a local restaurant or cafe if they could hold a “Philly Spin-In Night” in which a portion of the proceeds for the day benefit the event.
Invite 10 people over for a round of charity poker. Send invitations explaining your Philly Spin-In participation and request everyone bring $25-$40 mad money. If you want to try this on a larger scale, hold it in your church basement or local school. Provide refreshments.
Organize a Super Bowl party and ask everyone for a donation when they arrive. You can also do this for the Final Four basketball playoffs, Indy 500, Kentucky Derby, Masters’ golf, etc.
Get your friends and family together once a month for game night. Encourage everyone to bring a food dish. Everyone pays $5 to play, with all the money going to your Philly Spin-In fundraising goal.
