Brethren, I am in my lodges fundraising committee and have hit a brick wall as far as ideas go. please brethren give me some tips and ideas.
One thing I have been considering is a yard sale this summer. My proposal is to have brothers bring in anything they want to donate, and all money made goes to the Lodge. It serves two purposes. It allows members to clean out their closets and out buildings, and there is zero overhead such as with a supper. It's also doesn't require as much labor.
Our Lodge is situation right on a major road. I figure we can take the tables from the dining hall, set up shop in the parking lot one nice Saturday morning and make a few hundred bucks, mainly for our scholarship fund. We could also do in in conjunction with an open house, perhaps gaining a few perspective members along the way.
