Let’s look at some of the music fundraiser names in detail.

Rock Out for Refugees

Rock Out for Refugees

One of the most important causes in today’s society is helping refugees. These people have often been forced out of their homes for violence or other reasons and must now find a new place to live.

Oftentimes, they are forced to relocate to other countries, where they may not speak the language or know the customs. This fundraiser could be a rock concert featuring politically charged music bands.

They could cover songs with lyrics that relate to the condition of refugees, like “Imagine” by John Lennon or “New Slang” by the Shins. This fundraiser could also be a silent auction, where guests could bid on one-of-a-kind or rare items and donate to your cause simultaneously.

Finding Doryphory

Doryphory is the practice of focusing on negative aspects of situations or people. This is an issue that many people, especially teenagers and young adults, face when they attempt to start and attend fundraisers.

This fundraiser could be a concert that focuses on more positive lyrics, such as lyrics about love or friendship. It could also be a movie and dessert night, where guests watch the classic film Finding Nemo and eat popcorn, cheese, and grapes (a “Doryphory“). This event could also be a game night, with games focused on laughter and fun without negativity.

Endless Summer Synthathon

Endless Summer Synthathon

This music fundraiser could be a synth-pop concert or even a synth-only concert. A few synth-centric music festivals happening around the country, like Synthtopia and Synth-a-Con.

This event could also be a DJ dance night, where attendees are focused on dancing and listening to upbeat music. The endless summer theme could be inspired by retro, 80s music that many people love to dance to.

You could even play music from the Beach Boys, who have an endless summer album named Endless Summer.

Don’t Throw Stones: A Mime Concert

Don’t Throw Stones_ A Mime Concert

This could be a silent disco event, where attendees are given wireless headphones and are free to move however they like. This is a unique way to have a silent dance that is still fun and exciting.

This music fundraiser could also be a concert where all the artists perform in silence. This could be done as a fundraiser for a cause focusing on deaf culture or deaf people.

I Want to Know What Love Is: An End Lover’s Day Show

 Want to Know What Love Is_ An End Lover’s Day Show

This fundraiser could be a concert that plays love songs (as most love song concerts do) or a concert that plays songs about endearment and love.

This event could be done on March 14th, the birthday of Saint Therese, the patron saint of lovers. This event could also be a concert where artists sing about the end of a relationship.

We Built This City: An Audience Participation Concert

We Built This City_ An Audience Participation Concert

This event could be a concert with a live band or a jam session where audience members are invited to come up on stage and play with the performers. This could be a sing-along concert, where audience members are invited to join in with the lyrics of their favorite songs.

We Gotta Feeling: A Music Festival Event

We Gotta Feeling_ A Music Festival Event

This event could be a mini music festival, where guests are invited to a one-day music festival. This event could be themed to a specific decade or a general music festival, with all types of genres of music featured. This event could also be a themed dance party, where guests dance to music from different decades.

Shake it Out: A Walk-a-Thon to End Bullying Awareness

Shake it Out_ A Walk-a-Thon to End Bullying Awareness

This fundraiser could be a walk-a-thon where attendees walk around a local park or neighborhood, or they could walk a certain distance representing their goal for donations. This event could be themed to a specific artist or genre of music.

You could even invite local musicians to make an appearance at the walk and play for the guests during their walk. This event could also be a yoga or dance event focused on physical activity and breathing, two important aspects of de-stressing from the stresses of bullying.
