Mitzvah Day

Looking for ways to incorporate your Nothing But Nets campaign into your congregation's Mitzvah Day? Give these a try! Don't forget to apply for a Nothing But Nets grant to help underwrite your fundraiser! 


  • Sponsored Sports, have kids find sponsors for their participation in 'net'-related sports (e.g. basketball free throws, beanbag toss, soccor goals)
  • Sponsorship 3:3 Basketball Tournament
  • Arcade Basketball. Rent a couple "Pop-a-Shot" arcade basketball machines. $5 donations to play. Try a few rounds of "Beat the Rabbi!"


  • Show a Nothing But Nets video or PowerPoint.
  • Set up an eye-catching table display with a bed net in the lobby to advertise and raise awareness.


  • Set up a computer in the lobby for people to donate online.
  • Post a large thermometer in the lobby to display your synagogue team's progress.
  • On a bulletin board, design a "net" themed backdrop. Add family "bugs," listing the names of those who have donated.
  • Design and sell t-shirts to raise money. Use clever slogans like "Buzz off," "Beat the Bugs," "What's the Buzz?" or "'Veto the 'Squito."
