FUNdraising Ideas

  1. Teal Pumpkin Sales – Decorate pumpkins and host a fundraiser at a local farmers market, school or grocery store. You can sell your pre-decorated pumpkins (full-sized or mini) and share that proceeds will support the Teal Pumpkin Project. 

  2. Teal Pumpkin Painting Party – Invite your friends and neighbors to paint pumpkins together. Provide pumpkins, or ask everyone to bring their own and you can provide paint and other decorating tools. Ask attendees to make a suggested donation to participate.
  3. Food-free Halloween Party or Trunk-or-Treat – Create an annual neighborhood fundraising event that includes games (e.g., “Pin the Face on the Pumpkin”), crafts (e.g., teal pumpkin painting and decorating), and non-food treats. You can put out a container for donations with information about the Teal Pumpkin Project or collect donations for admission into your event.

  4. Neighborhood Donation Collection – Ask your neighbors to help create a safer, happier Halloween by making a donation. You can print flyers and materials from FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project downloads page to hand out while  you share information about how your neighbors can make an impact by supporting the campaign. Make a fundraising goal and share updates as you talk with your neighbors.
  5. Get Creative! – There are tons of ways you can make a difference by raising funds for FARE. Use your imagination to come up with an idea to raise awareness and funds to support the Teal Pumpkin Project.
