Fundraising events are the lifeblood of many not-for-profit groups, though they can take a lot of time and energy to be more than just opportunities for community connection or profile raising. To be truly "fund" raising, you need to have your eye on being profitable.

Some examples of the types of special events that make for popular not-for-profit fundraisers include: car-boot sales; fetes and festivals; trivia nights; fashion parades; talent contests; art shows; balls, dances and discos
