Offline fundraising
Tips on how to raise money offline.

Meetings

It's always a good idea to pass a donation box. Just make sure to share the message that it is optional. Nobody should ever feel pressured to donate to attend an XR meeting.
"We usually get £50 or so - that’d be from 40 people" – David Wilkins (XR Hammersmith and Fulham)

Talks

At the talk of Roger Hallam in Brussels (August 2019), we passed a donation box –church style– and we collected €275 (with about 170 people in the room).

Food

"From Bristol's experience, I can't stress the importance of food and block printing/general arts and crafts activities. Regardless of what event you're doing, having some free food will make people 10x more likely to donate and donate more." – James (XR Bristol)
