Would you consider hosting a small online or in home fundraiser for us? There are simple ones that only require a couple minutes of your time and others that would take longer to host but they both can all be effective methods of raising support and awareness for the ministry.
Facebook Fundraisers are an easy way to generate gifts for the ministry that can be set up in just a few minutes. To set up a fundraiser please go to the following link and select the Create a Fundraiser Raise Money button: www.facebook.com/pg/Paradosiballet/fundraisers
Common Facebook fundraisers are Birthday or Anniversary Fundraiser but you can do them at any time for any reason or no reason at all other than to show your support for the ministry.
All you need to do is set a goal when creating a fundraiser, invite people to give to the fundraiser, and share the fundraiser to your news feed. There is stock wording already in place or you can write your own donation request. We encourage you to thank your donors as they give.
Thank you for considering partnering with us in this way of raising support!
In-Home or Church Small Group Fundraisers
Hosting a small fundraiser in your home or church for Paradosi is a great way to share about the ministry and raise support for what we are called to do for the kingdom. These events give you an opportunity to act as an advocate for Paradosi sharing about the ministry, what we do, and the impact that the ministry has had on your life or in the life of others. During the event, as the host, you would talk about the ministry, share a video or two from our YouTube page, pray for the ministry, and make a request for support.
While we cannot be there in person for these events, we can provide links to download flyers, support packets, and other materials that you can print and hand out to your guests to help you in hosting a successful event.
To avoid any legal complications with the collection of gifts and the issuing of tax-receipts, PLEASE do not collect money directly from individuals during your event. Instead we request that you ask your guests to prayerfully consider making a gift to the ministry in an amount that is meaningful for them to give. Guests may give by phone, online through our website, or send their gift directly to our studio. A flyer with ways to give will be made available to download for distribution.
If you would like to know how your fundraiser went and if you met your fundraising goal, please provide us with a list of your attendees and we will share the total raised from your donors but not who gave or how much each individual gave.
Please know that with these events we do not want people to feel pressured or obligated to give. By not collecting donations during the event it removes the pressure of being coerced to give. We want people to give with a cheerful heart and not out of a feeling of obligation. If God is calling them to support the work of Paradosi, He will convict them to do so.
As the Bible says: "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7
Small Fundraiser Ideas:
• Invite your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors to a dinner, BBQ, wine tasting, or tea party.
• Ask your church small group if you can host a night to share about an arts ministry that you support.
