Throwing a Color Powder Fundraiser

Let’s put the “fun” back in fundraiser with color! Color powder can make any fundraiser for schools, clubs, or churches memorable and, well, a blast! We’re here to make your life easy; we've worked with countless schools, clubs, and hundreds of churches to throw amazing color parties. As the experts in color fundraisers, we have a complete guide to throwing vibrant and unique fundraisers that will have people talking for months and even years to come! Here are five easy steps to hosting a color fundraiser. (And don’t worry, we’re always here if you have any questions!)

Step 1. Plan your bash! 

First things first: there is more than one way to throw the color fundraiser of the year (or the best one EVER). We have some easy fundraising ideas though if you’re stuck. We’re sure you’ve seen color run fundraisers, and there’s a reason they’re so popular. Color runs are a fun way to get an entire community involved! However, there are other things to do like color battles, color sports, color powder in the snow, and so many other unique fundraising ideas! We haven’t forgotten the most important part of a fundraiser eitherto raise funds! Throwing a color fundraiser allows for a lot of flexibility. You can charge participants with a registration fee for your awesome event, sell tickets inside the event to participate in different activities, or even resell our color powder. 

Step 2. Figure out how many participants will be attending.

Hosting a color run fundraiser for a school, or say, throwing a color battle for your athletic club will require different amounts of chalk. If participants are throwing the powder at each other, we recommend that each person should receive about .75 lbs of powder. In other events where participants throw the chalk in the air, like in a color run, you'll want to use about .6 lbs of color per person. With large events, the most cost effective option is Chameleon Colors’ bulk boxes. (Go big and throw lots of color powder! That’s the saying, right?) Distribute the bulk powder to your participants individually or offer our powder as resale. If you don't want to repackage the powder before the event, Chameleon Colors offers 70g packets which are perfect, prepackaged blasts of color.

Step 3. Contact us with special requests. (Like custom color powder!)

Yes, we do custom colors! This is an awesome choice, especially if you’re doing a school 5k color run. There’s nothing that says school pride like custom color powders in your school’s colors! If you have any questions about our products, or if you have special paperwork requests, you can call our friendly customer support at 801-590-0324.
