Put the Power of Your Imagination to Work for the Horses!
Fundraising must be a year round effort with any non-profit organization. One or two large events will pay the majority of the bills but without continuous cash flow, some of the horses needs may not be met. They need our help!
We are asking you, our wonderful members and supporters to think “outside the box” and come up with ways to raise money for our equine guests. The ideas are limitless and no amount of money raised is too small. This can be a family project where even the smallest member can contribute, a Girl or Boy Scout troop, 4-H project, or a school challenge. Put your talents, passion, and imagination to work for the horses!
Listed below are some ideas:
Host a car wash
Challenge your family to give up coffee, snacks, etc. and donate the money to ILEHC
Garage, yard, craft, tack or bake sale
Host a game night at home - charge admission and have fun
Host a spaghetti dinner or pancake breakfast – charge admission
Host a karaoke or bunco tournament night
Challenge your friends to donate their babysitting wages
Cut grass, weed gardens, mend and paint fences for your family and neighbors
Pajama day at school - charge students to wear pajama’s to school
Dress down day at work - charge co-workers to be able to come work in comfortable clothes
Host a neighborhood carnival or block party
Class to class challenges - donate your change for one month and see which class wins
Bagging for bucks - see if your local grocery store will let your bag groceries for donations
The fundraising possibilities are endless. Use your imagination and have great fun helping the horses!!!!
