10 Last-Minute Mother’s Day Fundraisers to Honor Mom

Celebrating Mother’s Day comes with a bouquet of emotions, joy, and the scramble to find that perfect gift that says, “Thank you for everything, Mom!” But what if, this year, we could give back to moms everywhere while supporting a cause close to our hearts? 

At DoJiggy, we’re all about making fundraising meaningful and effective. With so much money being spent on Mother’s Day gifts and activities, nonprofits can easily raise funds by helping supporters celebrate the day in unique and inspiring ways. That’s why we’ve compiled this heartwarming list of ten last-minute Mother’s Day fundraisers that honor the incredible women in our lives and contribute to the greater good. 

1. Online Flower Sales

Kick off your Mother’s Day fundraising with our online fundraising stores. Partner with local florists to offer beautiful bouquets or potted plants where each purchase supports your cause. It’s a win-win for everyone involved, bringing smiles and support where it’s needed most.

2. Mother’s Day Fun Runs

Imagine the joy of families running or walking together and raising money for your cause. Organize a walk-a-thon fundraiser or virtual fun run, allowing participants from anywhere to join. It’s a fantastic way to engage your community and promote a healthy lifestyle, all in the name of Mom.

3. Wine and Cheese Tastings

Host an elegant wine and cheese tasting event at a local vineyard or upscale venue. It’s a sophisticated way to gather support, offering an evening of fine pairings with proceeds benefiting your chosen cause. Add some chocolate to make Mom happy.

Note – this one takes more effort to plan, so you may need to wait until next year.
