Donating to nonprofits in times of crisis

"Legitimacy Although rare, there are some people who stage fake fundraising for nonprofits and prey on kind and generous givers. If you are concerned with the legitimacy of an organization, you can confirm the validity of any nonprofit through your local charity bureau. Doing your part will help to make sure that your donations reach the people you want to help. After selecting a charity to support by following the steps above, you should be ready to donate. However, donating money from your bank account is not the only way to support a worthy cause. You can raise funds through a charity bake sale or participate in an online auction such as the eBay Giving Works program which provides online fundraising for nonprofit organizations."

Traditional and unique nonprofit fundraising ideas gain popularity

"According to an article from the Philanthropy Journal, the spirit of charity is truly alive in the U.S., as seen in the results of a study entitled “Key Facts on U.S. Foundations” by the Foundation Center.

Fun runs are great ideas for nonprofit fundraisers

"In recent years, an increasing number of charitable institutions have been moving towards organizing more accessible fundraisers for nonprofits. This shift has allowed a wider range of people to donate to a cause they believe in. One of the more popular fundraising ideas nonprofits have been using have been “fun runs.” A fun run is a themed race where people are encouraged to dress up and walk or run 5k, 10k, and sometimes marathons. In a recent article from The Island Packet, firefighters participated in one such run to raise awareness and funding for the Code 3 for a Cure Foundation. Firefighters Alex Murray, Jed Huth and Kirk Prinsen of the Burton Fire District ran a 5K race dressed in full firefighting gear and handed out cards and informational fliers to spectators along the way.

Easy charity fundraising ideas to support animal rights nonprofits

"During a two-week investigation in September, undercover investigators visited the stores to see if they were complying with a new state law which requires the stores to post certain information about their puppies on each cage. The law was designed to give customers more information about where the dogs were raised, in an effort to help consumers avoid buying puppies from puppy mills. For most people, dogs and cats are creatures that are loved and cherished as pets.
