Who will be the last person standing? Survival contests are all the rage, so why not take advantage of the popularity and create your own ultimate survival fundraiser contest? You can create a survivor style fundraiser for just about any type of challenge. Whether it’s building a grueling 5-mile survival course full of obstacles and challenges in the mountains or desert, or simply having a series of challenges where you see who can stand the longest on a box or who can hop on one leg the longest without falling, etc. You can make it as easy or as difficult as you want. You can also create special contests just for kids to compete in.

For raising funds, you can charge a participation fee or set it up where participants collect donations based on how long they are able survive the challenge. Ask local businesses to sponsor the event and donate prizes for the winners.

You’ll want to start promoting this fundraiser at least 2-months in advance (longer if you plan to make it a large event). Be sure to promote heavily on all your social media channels. Also, create posters and flyers that you can place throughout the community. You’ll also need a sign up form along with waivers on your website.
