Third-Party Fundraiser Ideas
Are you creative? Do you have a hobby or a special talent?
That’s all you need to hold a third-party fundraiser for Camp O. Recently, several Camp friends worked to help raise funds to help Camp during this financially difficult time. They came up with four great and unique ways to raise much-needed funds – they held “third-party” fundraisers!
Want to know what a third-party fundraiser is? It’s a type of fundraiser hosted by an individual, group of friends, organization, school, or community group that benefits Camp Ondessonk. It is planned and executed independently from Camp and can be a simple one-person effort or a more involved, multi-person event. Proceeds from the fundraiser are then given to Camp to use where needed most.
Here are four great stories about how friends of Camp created third-party fundraisers that provided financial support to Camp.
1. Former camper & CIT, and current summer staff member, Olivia Spraul, combined her love of Camp with her love for baking, by selling frozen cookie dough to residents in her town to help Camp Ondessonk. Her Cookies for Camp fundraiser raised over $1,700 in just two weeks! To read more about Olivia’s Cookies for Camp fundraiser, click here.
2. The Bretscher family hosted a Christmas in July Facebook fundraiser, raising over $5,600 for Camp Ondessonk! To learn more about the Bretschers’ fundraiser, click here.
3. Lillian & Isla, two children from the Metro-East area of St. Louis, recently made a gift of $116.75 – money that was earned selling lemonade!
