I wanted to let you know some info that will shape any fundraising plans we might have. The best way to raise money is to become a 501(c)(3). That costs about $1,000. Sooooo- I don't think it is a likely scenario for us at this time.
All that means however is that when we solicit donations they cannot be tax deductible.
There are many ways to fundraise moving forward- anyone who wants to pick one and go for it is TOTALLY welcome to do so. My instinct is to go the Crowdfunding route. Set up a Go Fund Me site, make it adorable, and share it out to our entire worlds. I am willing to work on this for sure- but would love help.
There are also all kinds of sales that can happen, candy, tchotchkes, smencils, etc.
There are also auctions.
There are also events.
Thoughts are welcome- actions are even more welcomed!
