Fundraising Ideas

Use these ideas to purchase Splash! resources for all the young children in your congregation.

Budget for Splash! Packs

Prioritize birth to three ministry in your congregation. Include funds for Splash! Packs and other early childhood ministry resources in the congregation's annual budget.

Sponsorship

Invite the child's baptismal sponsors or godparents to purchase Splash! Packs for one, two, or all three years. Let them know you'll take care of the monthly mailings.

Grandparent Connections

Grandparents may be interested in purchasing Splash! Packs for the first three years of their grandchildren's lives. And speaking of grandparent connections, ask all grandparents in your congregation if they would like to sponsor one, two, or three years of Splash! Packs for their grandchildren who attend other congregations (or no congregation at all).

Invite Support from Other Groups

Many youth groups are expert fundraisers because of their experience raising money for youth events. Women's groups often support congregational ministries. Explore whether these and other groups in your church could cover Splash! Pack costs for each child in your congregation.

Plan a Baby Shower!

Let congregation members know what is needed for a safe, well-stocked nursery. In addition to gathering supplies like diapers, toys, and furnishings, ask members to sponsor a Splash! Pack for a child. Here's a colorful way to show what is needed. Write each item (Splash! Pack, baby wipes, toys) on a paper cutout of a rubber duckie, baby bottle, or other item. Hang these cutouts in a visible place and encourage people to take one or more and purchase the supplies or make an offering for the needed amount.

And remember to ask all members for prayer support for birth to three ministry in your congregation!
