So, to answer one of the questions: personally, I frown on it. But, to be fair, if that bingo money found its way into a worthy charity I would consider it tolerable.

As for fundraising, I have been asked to do some speaking engagements. Recently, I was asked to put on a presenatation at a college, and the student org. that found us, told me the other day they are donating $1,000 for our efforts. We will also have a table set up. This event is free to the public, but in the media we have announced we will be accepting donations at the table during the event.
We also have been asked by a hotel that is rerported to be haunted, to do a public investigation there for hotel guests. They are charging an extra $20 on top of the price for a hotel room for the "ghost hunting" package. We are getting Half of the extra, $10 a person, plus hotel rooms for our team members.
One other thing we will be doing next year is putting on a "Haunted house". We already have the location. We are actually going to use half of the proceeds of this event and donate it to a different charity. So people will know that their money is going to us and another worthy cause (we like the Make a Wish Foundation. They keep the money they get locally and grant wishes locally).
