WOW! Fundraising Blog

I found an article from our brothers across the pond in Burnham-On-Sea, Somerset, UK that *literally* turns up the heat on local fundraising. Watched by large crowds, more than 30 daring volunteers walked over burning hot coals to raise money for a local charity. The red-hot coals were stoked up to temperatures reaching over 1,200 degrees centigrade before the night-time walk took place.

The only way the Kurtz family of Waukee can help children like their daughter, McKayla, who has cystic fibrosis, is by raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The Kurtz family are currently the organization's leading fundraisers in Iowa. Last month, they came close to raising $20,000 for the annual Great Strides Walk in Des Moines. "Other than taking care of McKayla, there isn't much else we can do to further the progress of research other than raise money," said Chaney Kurtz, McKayla's mom.

I love when we get emails like this: "Thank you for all your help with this little project. Word has gotten out that I am expecting a shipment of candy - I am going to have to hire armed guards to keep the staff away from the lollipops when they get here! People are already calling dibs on what flavors they want - we have a staff of 90 - I hope 2,400 will be enough! Anyway, thanks again."

We get this question alot. You may or may not have to pay taxes. Remember, not ALL fundraisers are tax free. Basically, it depends on what type of organization you have, what types of products you are selling, and where you are located. Plus, there are quite a few other rules that might apply to your organization as well. Here is a fantastic resource to help jump start your research.

Fundraising is tough. Convincing your supporters to donate their hard earned dollars to your cause is tough enough without criminals like this guy using a fake charity to swindle money from the community. This guy's punishment was (thankfully) more than a slap on the wrist. Let's hope it sends the right message to any other con-artists lurking in the shadows. "A man accused of running a sham coin-collecting charity in the name of helping animals was fined more than $330,000 and barred from fundraising in New Jersey under a court order released today.
