I have to say that the most popular new fundraising event idea in 2012 has been the Hunger Games fundraiser. I don’t know if its just the extreme popularity of the books and the movie, but I’m getting more questions about how to do this type of event than all the other ones combined. Using cheap cloth table runners for those types of events are perfect when they’re themed like those at Hunger Games.
It’s probably because, at its core, a Hunger Games style event is extremely adaptable to all the fundraising variables such as group size, age of participants, amount of funds needed, available space and number of volunteers.
According to this fundraising management consultant, schools are doing this one with an academic component. Teens love it because they can identify with the characters and make their own Hunger Games outfits. Adults enjoy it because its new and different. Organizers see a Hunger Games competition as easy to promote and get sponsorships from local businesses.
And most importantly, its a huge draw for the event itself because everyone gets to passionately root 0n their favorites in all the different phases of the competition.
Big crowds + fun events = Successful fundraiser!
