Fundraising is the process of gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies.
Traditionally, it consisted mostly of asking for donations on the street or at people’s doors, and this is experiencing very strong growth in the form of face-to-face fundraising, but new forms of fundraising, such as online fundraising, have emerged in recent years, though these are often based on older methods such as grassroots fundraising.
There are a number of fundraising events throughout the world commonly done to raise money for:
- Cancer patients
- Poor people
- Relief Fund
- Family of Army personnel
- Famine affected areas
- Another social event and lots more.
Fundraising events commonly include:
- Half Marathon Runs
- Charity Cricket Matches
- Charity Football Matches
- Gala Functions
- Dinner Events Sports Events
These days there are some new ways to raise funds like:
- Online fundraising
- Social Campaigns like “No Shave November”
- Selling products and donating a part of it
