Do you offer a product that can help bring a house-cleaning fundraiser to life?

How does house cleaning raise money?

A house-cleaning fundraiser offers the same services as a housekeeping business, but instead of profiting from the service, your volunteers would be raising money for your cause.

More people might be willing to purchase house cleaning services when they know their money will support your work. They’ll have the satisfaction of donating to a good cause and they’ll get something in exchange for their donation.

How to start a house-cleaning fundraiser

Recruit volunteers

First, you’ll need to find willing volunteers. Ask people who are regularly involved with your organization to sign up and provide the following information:

  • Number of houses they’re willing to clean
  • Days and times they’re available
  • Contact information
  • Area of town where they’d like to volunteer

Then, pair volunteers based on their preferences and availability. The job will be easier when they don’t have to do it alone!

Buy supplies

Before you clean any houses, you’ll need the appropriate supplies! Have the following products ready before you volunteer to clean any houses:

  • Dusting spray/dusters
  • Vacuums
  • Mops
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Glass cleaner
  • Toilet bowl cleaner
  • Cleaning rags

Shop for low-cost supplies so that your donations cover your costs and still bring in revenue for your cause.

Create packages and set prices

Not everyone will want the same cleaning services, so determine what services your volunteers will provide and what donations will correspond with those services.

For example, offer a package of dusting and vacuuming services for a smaller donation than a full package that includes a complete house cleaning.

Advertise cleaning services

Promote your fundraiser on your typical marketing channels, but remember that these services won’t only appeal to your organization’s direct audience.
