Fundraising for Animals: Board Game Tournament Fundraiser

Looking for a family friendly event to help your animal rescue organization raise funds for their goals?  Look no further, a Board Game Tournament Fundraiser is a wonderful family friendly event for your animal rescue group to hold.

Board Game Tournament Fundraiser

A Board Game Tournament Fundraiser isn’t that hard to set up.  You’ll need a venue to hold it in, indoors is probably best for this fundraising event.  A banquet hall, fire hall or even a local club would be an ideal venue for this event.

You’ll have to pick your game, or games.  Have a few different tournaments going on. Scrabble, Chess, , Monopoly, Trivia Pursuit, Jenga, Yahtzee,  even Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land or Perfection would work.  Whatever your animal rescue group’s favorite games are.  You’ll need a couple of each game you choose, if possible.

Advertise your event and get people signed up in advance, so you know how many to plan for.  But allow for last minute sign-ups too.  Charge a $10 or thereabouts, sign-up fee for each tournament.

Set up your tournament schedule and you’re ready to go.

This is also a great event to throw in a few of the add on fundraisers that we’ve mentioned before.  Such as food stands, a bake sale, a Reverse Raffle, Chinese Auction, Easter Egg Grab Bag, etc.

Have fun with it, turn it into the event of the season!  And then repeat it every year, your regulars will come back time and time again for your annual Board Game Tournament.  It really is a great fundraising event for the whole family.  And a great way for your animal rescue group to raise funds for your next project!
