Online fundraising events can help boost income and connect communities socially.
Firstly, pick an event that is unique to your church, that your communities will enjoy, and crucially one that is not too difficult to organise – it’s often best to keep it simple!
Ideas for events include:
- Quiz night
- Competitions – such as photography or walking challenges
- Cook-along or coffee morning
- Online auction
- Music night or sing-along
- Virtual tour of the church building.
You can run most online events via platforms such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
Set up an online donation platform so people can donate. You can then ask people to donate before, during, or after the event.
Share your event widely via posters, notice sheets, your website, social media and word of mouth!
