Need easy and effective long and short term fundraising ideas for a horse rescue in Maryland?

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009
Laura J asked:

Hi everyone,

I need effective and easy fundraising ideas for a horse rescue in Maryland where I am a volunteer. We have a volunteer shortage and are extremely low on funds, to the point where we may eventually need to close a farm if things continue this way. We care for around 100 horses at our two farms, and around 50 fosters, as well as some donkeys, mules, and ponies.

I need some ideas for fundraising that will not take a great deal of manpower – ideas for marketing and public awareness activities are also welcome.

By the way, more info about the rescue can be found at – if you are able to volunteer or provide online donations, especially at this difficult time, please check the site for more info. We would appreciate it!

Thanks for the ideas and assistance.

ImmortalOrchid asked:

I am the co-president of a great club in my high school called “Smile Train”, which is an extension of the organization itself. I was just looking for ideas, because our club, though growing larger slowly, is still small and sometimes the senior members (all seven or eight of us) have a hard time thinking of fundraising ideas for our little club. Most of the proceeds have to go to the organization (okay, all of them- I still have to check up on that) and we just really want to make a big difference on the school community and the town we live in. Thanks for any suggestions!

The rest of the class representitives have agreed we should do something with an ecological charity like the Arbor Day Foundation. We’d prefer it to be a low, or no cost fundraiser. Does anyone have some ideas?
