Hi Ashleigh, you will do very well because you have the whole year ahead of you! There are various ways to raise money in a facility: Jumbo Sale, Cake Run, High Tea (with paid guests), Sausage Sizzle, Trivia Nigh, Second-hand movies, book/CD/Games Sale. One of the best ways is selling tickets for an attractive raffle for Mothers’ Day/ Father’s Day. Place a request on your Newsletter for suitable donations from staff and residents’ relatives. Divide donations into two or three prizes, wrap them creatively and display in a prominent place. The first thing you should do is finding out what are the management policies regarding the above ideas. All the best!

I run "Lucky Square" at our Retirement Village.
A 3 paper size with 30 squares so "staff, residents, family & visitors" can place name & contact in each square.
I give 2 x $20.00 prizes to winners & I bank $20.00. (Notify on whiteboard) of winners.)

Place sign explaining game, closed money box with attached pen & secure paper to small table. (Place n Foyer of facility)
I draw 2 x winners every week.

You could reach out to local home care agencies for a donation of ornaments. I recently reached out to our local agencies for an activity box roughly costing $50/per box. This helped save me tons of money.
