How to Host a Community Fundraiser
Thank you for your interest in hosting a fundraiser on behalf of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama (RMHCA). RMHCA welcomes our community’s initiatives to help further promote awareness and funding for our programs. Because of your time and support, we are able to provide a “home-away-from-home” for families of seriously ill children 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at our Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham and our Ronald McDonald Family Room in Tuscaloosa.
With the help of your friends, co-workers, and family, you can help make a difference in the lives of families with sick or injured children by organizing a fundraiser to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama.
These are some examples of fundraisers you could organize to help RMHCA:
- Jeans Day: Employees who make a donation to RMHCA are invited to wear jeans to work.
- Special Promotion: Donate a portion of all sales of a select item.
- Tournament: Organize a softball, golf, kickball tournament and donate entry fees to RMHCA.
- Car Wash, Yard Sale, and Lemonade Stand
- Food Festival: Organize a chili cook-off or BBQ block party with your friends and neighbors.
- Challenge Drive: Display an RMHCA collection box and inform your customers that you will match a portion of funds donated. In Kind Donations are welcome!
- Change Drive: Employees collect loose change over a period of time and donate it to RMHCA.
- Fashion Show: Organize a fashion show with your friends, like Samford’s Alpha Delta Pi Sorority.
