Fundrasing Ideas for Jeep Club

Hey everyone,

Last November, we started a Jeep club at my college and we've grown quite a bit since. Now that we've got the members, we're looking to do some fundraisers to go on some trips and start participating in events. We're having a little trouble with the brainstorming so I wanted to reach out to the JF community and see if you guys could help us out. We're open to anything, and being a tech school, have access to a full welding shop, machine shop, and auto facility. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Weld those weird figurines for the yard. A buddy of mine has a side business doing that. Yard art...

Most of the clubs I know of are self funded. When they do fund raising it's for a specific charity or community and usually done by holding events and selling tickets.

I wouldn't be willing to contribute my money to a "send me and my buddies on a wheelin' vacation" fund raiser.

Yep, it's internal at this point. But, if you have access to a CNC plaz, cut some yard art like mentioned earlier, try some custom battery boxes some other OR accessory. Don't list it as a "fund our club" menu, just sell it for profit and apply it to your "non-profit" orginization. Elect officers and delegate tasks, like canvasing the local OR stores for sponserships of events (your events, get in an association). Put on the best otrganized event you can, draws more people next year.

This and I would not think it would be legal for a non for profit club to use funds to send people on a wheeling trip.

Correct. The funds would benefit the members.

A club I belong to raises funds for wheeling trips, BUT, the people who benefit from it are Wounded Vets not the club members. The funds raised help cover some of the costs of getting the Vets there, park admission, etc. They also donate said funds to Poisoned Patriots and a few others. None of the funds raised go to the club.
