Great Idea for a Student Ministry Fund Raiser

By


Our associate found a great fund raising idea for our student ministry’s summer mission trip. It’s simple and effective! It’s called the “Wall o’ Money.” Here’s what he did. He took simple white envelopes and had the students decorate them, numbering them from $1 to $100. The envelopes were then displayed on one of the walls of our lobby outside the sanctuary. People were invited to take an envelope corresponding to the amount they would like to donate, insert the cash or check, and turn it in. It’s a simple idea, but here’s the genius behind it: if every envelope is taken, those numbers add up to about $5,000!
