Walkathon

This fundraiser was a big success for our youth group last year. Have teens bring in the names and addresses of at least 10 people they know. They can bring more if they like. Develop a form letter describing your fundraiser, stating that “Tommy” gave their name in hopes that they would consider sponsoring “him” for the walkathon. State that the person’s contribution is tax deductible and include a return envelope with the church’s address on it, for the person to mail in their contribution. We did not put postage on these return envelopes. State in the letter the date for the fundraiser and that the teen who receives the most sponsors will receive a prize. The only work involved is mailing out the letters. There is no hassle or hounding teens to collect from the people whose names they brought in. The contributions are mailed directly to the church.
