1. Host an art gala
If you’re an artist or have friends or students that are artists or craftspeople (perhaps photographers, painters, or jewelry makers), ask them to donate pieces to an art sale supporting your cause. Here’s how:
- Find a space to host the event—ideally a gallery, café, or school space. Serve drinks and appetizers.
- Allow people time to walk around, chat, learn about your cause, and enjoy the art.
- Provide information about your cause by setting up a donation station with a mobile device displaying your fundraiser page. Show people how much their purchases and donations can help.
