Fundraising ideas for the Salon
$1 Hand Treatments
This is already done in your salon as part of the Aveda Experience. Use it as a donation driver in the month of April.
Appointments for the Earth
Service providers donate a day, week or month of discounted services to raise money.
Drops on the walls
Use the template in the downloads section to pre-cut waterdrops from recycled paper. Hang them on the walls each time someone makes a donation and don't stop until you have covered the walls.
Tea Jars for Donations
This fundraiser is perfect to collect the change given at countless stores in your town. Use your empty Aveda Comforting Tea jars or another large container and print the “Jar Label” from the Downloads section of the website. Place one in your Aveda Experience Area (SRE), at your cash desk and in other key areas in the salon.
Art Sale – local talent (from salon)
Our industry is wonderfully creative, let’s put that on display! Have staff donate handmade pieces such as art, jewelry, clothing, accessories, etc. and sell them at a fixed cost, or as silent auction items.
People pay a lot of money for the convenience of vending machines. Vendors can easily charge $2.00 or more for a soda that only costs $0.30 when purchased at a wholesale price. Set up a mini snack bar at your salon selling water, pop, coffee, tea, and various snacks (chips, nuts, chocolate bars, gum, candy, etc.) for a generous mark up with all proceeds going towards the WFW. See if you can get a local grocery or variety store to donate a few items for sale!
Fundraising Ideas for Individuals
Perhaps the simplest of all fundraisers is the 50/50 raffle. Sell tickets for a bargain like $5 each or 3 for $10. The winner drawn will receive 50% of the cash, and the other 50% will go straight to the cause.
Garage Sale / Yard Sale
Who doesn't have stuff floating around in their attic, basement, or spare room that just isn't used or needed anymore? Clear out the clutter and help your cause at the same time. Get together on a weekend and arrange a yard sale outside of your salon. Advertise online and in the salon to bring in your cliental to spend money on your old treasures.
Gift Basket Auction or Raffle
Make a collection of theme gift baskets – starting of course with one full of Aveda products or even a package that includes services at your salon! Ask for gift basket donations throughout the community and hold a raffle or silent auction to raise money with the baskets.
Pop some popcorn, dim the lights, and settle in for a night of movie magic! Many movie theaters will work with groups to arrange special functions. Contact the theaters in your area to organize a charity movie night where all proceeds of ticket sales go directly towards the cause. Or, host a movie marathon at home for your friends and family – you provide the theatre and the popcorn!
