Do you want to get your heart really pumping on your next adventure to raise funds for charity? Many generous people are doing just that. Welcome to extreme fundraising!
You’ve watched and maybe participated in extreme makeovers and extreme sports. Extreme fundraising is also finding its place in the nonprofit world.
Just like traditional fundraising events, extreme events raise both money and awareness for the charity and its cause. Due to the uniqueness of these events, they have the potential to get the attention of people who wouldn’t get excited about traditional fundraisers such as runs, walks, raffles or auctions.
Skydiving is one way you can put your fears to the test and have fun while supporting your favorite charity. Several individuals and groups have performed an exhilarating parachute jump to collect charitable donations.
What extreme activity have you always wanted to accomplish? If you are still waiting for an incentive to go after that dream, consider doing it for charity. Take the leap and you might be surprised at how many people will donate money to your favorite charity to see you follow through.
Note: Get permission from the charity before you collect donations. There are some that don’t want money collected through extreme (dangerous) activities.
