Free Fundraising Ideas
Having a profitable fundraiser is your
goal. Try these ideas at your event.
Rent one of
our Carnival Packages or Big Event packages. Sell tickets
and raise $$$$$. For each ride or game, collect two or

fundraising income. Another way is to approach Togos, Boston

idea. Send out invitations with an admission price. Your

Card to a nice restaurant, or a gag gift for the biggest losers.
