Ideas for Fall Fundraisers

If you’re looking to start a fundraiser this Autumn season, fall into these seven ideas with GotSneakers.

Nature Walk

Host a fundraiser at a local park and invite attendees to go on a nature hike. Let your fellow fundraiser goers know they can bring any old sneakers they’ve been wanting to get rid of. Before or after the nature walk, you can provide them with a mini information session about the importance of recycling sneakers and how they can go about doing so.

Flag Football

Organize a flag football fundraiser and tell attendees to wear their jerseys from their favorite football team. You can also let them be creative and have them create their own team jerseys. Let them know they’re more than welcome to bring old sneakers they don’t want anymore and after the game, explain to them how they can recycle their sneakers.

Sneakers & S’mores

Host a bonfire fundraiser and get marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers to make s’mores.  You and your attendees can enjoy making s’mores while exchanging spooky stories. Inform your attendees to bring any old sneakers they don’t want or need anymore to recycle them.

Scary Sneakers

Put on a costume party fundraiser that requires all participants to wear costumes with sneakers. Some costume ideas could be a basketball player, tennis player, rock star, and more.

Let your guests know if they have any sneakers they’ve outgrown, they can bring them to the fundraiser to recycle.


Invite people to carve pumpkins with sneaker designs. You can tell attendees to bring their own pumpkin and/or you can have pumpkins at the fundraiser for people to carve. Be sure to let all of the attendees know to bring a pair of sneakers that they’ve been wanting to get rid of so they can recycle them. During the pumpkin carvings, you can hold Q&As about sustainability and the environment while tying in how recycling their own sneakers can truly make an impact.


Bring your own old sneakers you would like to recycle along with your favorite beverage. Beverages could be alcoholic (if you’re 21 and over of course) or non-alcoholic. Host a gathering with live music, food and invite each guest to bring their drinks of choice.

Sneaker PotLuck

Give thanks by encouraging others to bring old sneakers to recycle. You can host a potluck and invite attendees to bring Thanksgiving dishes such as turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, bread rolls, green beans, apple pie, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, corn, salad, cranberry sauce, and more. You can also let attendees know to bring assorted beverages, serving utensils, plates, cups, and napkins. After the meal is over or even during the meal, talk about how reusing and recycling is great for the environment.

Tis the season to give thanks and be grateful for one another as well as planet earth.
