Tasteful and funny Nude Calendar fundraisers have been going on for years, for all types of groups. Even churches! So why not do a Nude Calendar Fundraiser for your animal rescue group. You know it’ll be a big seller!
Oh, don’t get offended so quickly. We’re not talking Playboy naked, we’re talking real people naked. With props, or in this case animals. Totally G-rated stuff. Okay, maybe PG 13, depending on how risque you’re volunteers are willing to go!
A nude calendar fundraiser would be a great fundraiser to fund a big project. Such as, building a new animal shelter, or upgrading an existing one.
Nude Calendar Fundraiser
The fun of a Nude Calendar Fundraiser is that you can do it pretty much anyway you like, and it’s still going to be a big seller in your area. In any area. Come on, it’s human nature!
Find a creative photographer, and at least 12 models. Men or women of any ages. Anyone brave enough to bare it all for your animal rescue group.
Pick a theme, that shouldn’t be hard. Get the animals involved. Long-term shelter animals would be great to use. Get their pictures in front of hundreds of people, and hopefully not only will your group raise a lot of money, they’ll find homes for those who need them most.
Find a printer. Put it together, and let the selling begin. They’ll fly off of the shelves!
Have more volunteers willing to bare it all for your animal rescue group? Do up both a male and a female version. See who sells better. You may be surprised.
Some examples of tasteful and funny Nude Calendar fundraisers:
The Men of Maple Corner’s calendar featured men between 60-78 years old in various stages of undress. They raise more than $500,000. Far surpassing their original goal of $30,000.
The women from Tamworth, NH raised more than $75,000 with their nude calendar fundraiser. The following year, they made the men do it.
In Rollinsford, NH the public library did a Bare it All for Books calendar. They not only had a blast, they raised a lot of money.
Even public schools have done nude calendar fundraisers! So why not your local animal rescue or shelter!
As with all fundraising efforts – Have fun with it!
