  • IAFF Local fundraiser for member

    Hi all,

    Just wanting to get input on what type of fundraisers other Locals have done to raise money for a member, such as one battling a long term illness.

    We would be doing it strictly for one member to use for personal bills under our Local's representation.

    We are a relatively small local with about 100 guys.

    Thanks for any input.

    Have you tried the International website there are several news briefs and stories about other locals doing fundraisers. We have only taken up monies from within the department for members in need. Thankfully we haven't had to do any fundraiser for a sick brother. Check out the website iaff.org.

      Golf outings, Casino nights, or 50-50 Raffles where usually every company purchases a chance and usually a few members here or there do as well. If you are a smaller dept you could try also selling to those FD's nearby or in your county.

      Although ours are usually put on by the company the member is from and not the local.

        A group of buddies and I organized an Hog Roast/Auction for a friend of ours that had cancer. We ran the event on a Saturday night from 18:00-midnite and attracted between 1500-2000 people. We had most everything donated including: meat, drinks, almost all auction items, 50-50 raffle items, etc......We raised nearly $90k that evening between ticket sales, donations, auction, 50-50's, and alcohol sales (we went thru 21 kegs and charged per drink). Planning the event was a lot of work, but we had a blast doing it and would do it again to help out a friend. If you need more info, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

            Trivia Nights are a pretty easily set-up fund raiser.

            You'll need a large hall, soda, draft beer, an MC with 10 topics of trivia with 10 questions each and help.

            A normal price is $80 for a table of 8, but that is entirely up to you.

            And I've seen 200,300,400 people or more show up for these and at $10 a pop it adds up fast. Of course some of the $ will need to be paid out to the winners, but a small percentage. 10% at the most, split among the top 2 or 3 winnign tables..

            Alot of people people are regulars at these and MANY bring their own food,
            chips etc...but you could also sell food hamburgers/popcorn whatever, if you have the manpower.
