Halloween Fundraising: Reverse Trick or Treating

Halloween is not only a great time for some spookily themed fundraisers.  It’s also a great time to introduce people to your nonprofit organization, your mission, and your recent works with some reverse Trick or Treating.

Sometimes simply getting more information about your nonprofit organization is more important than just raising funds.  And this is a fun way to do it.  People are more accepting on a night when they expect their doorbells to be ringing constantly.

Reverse Trick or Treating:

Reverse trick or treating isn’t all about fundraising, and fun raising.  It’s also a great way to get your nonprofit group’s name and information all throughout your area.  While you gather donations for your organization.  And it’s pretty easy to set up and organize.

First, print up some pamphlets describing your organization and your mission.  You can make up cute [amazon_textlink asin=’B005OMUDTM’ text=’Halloween treat bags’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thefosterp0bc-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’2bad920b-8cf9-11e7-8fb2-6dab96a76c66′] to put the flyer in.

Get local merchants to donate some treats, or have your volunteers bake up some to hand out with your flyers.  There’s all kind of easy to make Halloween Goodie Ideas on Pinterest.

Making up a donation can for each sub group is a good idea too!

Next, gather your volunteer Trick or Treaters, and split up into smaller groups, to be able to cover as much of an area as possible.  You can even organize your groups before that night, and hand out the “treats” to each group then.

Lot’s of parents are taking their kids trick or treating that night, it shouldn’t be hard to get lots of help for your Reverse Trick or Treating Fundraiser.

And have fun while you teach the neighborhood about what it is your nonprofit does!  For all of your animal rescuers out there, it’s a great time to get the word out about your services.  Such as low-cost spay and neuter clinics, or vaccination clinics.  Or do up your pamphlets on some of your latest rescue animals, and hope that potential adopters are in the trick or treat area.
