Visions of bunnies, chicks, spring, and flowers in bloom... Easter is just around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time to start planning an Easter-inspired fundraiser for your nonprofit organization. Whether you need to raise money for your church, school, or club, there are plenty of creative ways to fundraise while celebrating this important holiday.

I. Online Easter Fundraising Ideas

In light of the ongoing pandemic and social distancing measures, online fundraisers have become more popular than ever. Here are some innovative ideas to help you collect donations online this Easter:

1. Online Easter Challenge

Embrace the power of social media and design a challenge specifically for platforms like Instagram. Encourage your followers to complete a challenge, donate to your nonprofit, and then tag their friends to do the same. Whether it's decorating an Easter egg or doing some bunny hops, make sure the challenge is fun and easy to participate in.

2. Online Easter Basket Auction

Create Easter-themed baskets filled with goodies and auction them off online. Think outside the box and offer different basket themes like a Chocoholic Basket, Morning Coffee/Tea Basket, or even a Home & Garden Basket. Encourage your supporters to bid on their favorite baskets and watch the prices soar!

3. Online Flower Sale

Partner with a local florist (or a website that gathers several florists) and run a campaign together. Select a couple of flower arrangements and sell them online, with a portion of the profits going towards your nonprofit. Make it enticing by highlighting the impact each purchase will have on your cause.

Get creative with existing online event platforms to host a memorable experience for your supporters.

5. Virtual Walk/Run

Adapt your traditional charity walk/run into a virtual event. Participants can choose to walk or run alone at any time on a specific day and share their photos with the community. Design a unique landing page for the fundraiser and encourage participants to pledge a certain distance or activity. Yoga, jump rope, or cycling are great alternatives!

II. In-Person Easter Fundraising Ideas

If you're ready to host an in-person fundraiser, here are a couple of ideas to connect with your supporters face-to-face:

1. Easter Egg-Decorating Picnic

Organize a fun Easter egg-decorating event combined with a picnic. Set up picnic tables and chairs for your attendees, and provide a variety of dishes to cater to different dietary preferences. Charge a nominal entry fee and consider partnering with a local vendor to sponsor a prize. Let the creativity flow and watch the eggs come to life!

Consider offering house cleaning or gardening services for an extra touch!
