Fundraising is about more than raising money. When volunteers run flea markets, bake sales, arts, crafts, plant sales, sell raffle tickets, they are giving the public the opportunity to buy at especially low prices as most of these items are donated. Flea markets are the perfect incentive to clear out the garage and attic. The events also give people in the community a day out socializing.
Then there are fundraising dinners prepared and served by volunteers of an organization or church.
