Our department is 100% volunteer and all money used for training is acquired by donations or fundraisers. The largest fund raiser of the year is coming up in July and we’re looking for ideas. We have the standard dunk tank, coin toss, chicken dinner etc. and will probably be adding a pedal tractor pull this year.

Does anyone have any suggestions or things that have worked really well in the past?

We started doing flyers thru the mail which has been very successful. As a matter of fact we don't do "coin drops" anymore. Also we buy large items like snow blowers, leaf blowers, Bar-B-Q grilles and raffle them off that has worked well too.

Our company has done a coupe things that raise alot of good revenue that has replaced lost tools on some jobs.

we went to a busy intersection geared up and did a coin toss we raised 1200 in 4 hours

we ran a flea market from our sub station charged 20 bucks for people to have a spot to set up their table we raised about 600 that day

we have hosted a big cookout with hotdogs hamburgers and a chance for kids to check out our apparatus and we teach them how to tie some knots and use fire extinguishers which the parents love and at the same time did a raffle for various items

We usually do 1-2 car washes a year, usually raise $250-350

Also have a big car show where we pull in $3500-4500, it's a hell of a lot of work, it usually $15-20 to register, we close down a big section of our main street, and we park cars/trucks on either side of the street. All the stores are open and enjoy the added business, we sell tshirts and stickers. Last year we had 100+ of all years makes and models. It's a worthwhile fund raiser.
