Think Outside the Fundraising Box
Bring Fundraising Events to Life
By finding new and innovative ways to attract new audiences to your fundraising event, you can spice things up a bit. Consider changing venues to a location a little less formal or outside underneath of a beautiful tent. Planning is crucial when it comes to your big event. Consider the following elements to make your event a success.
Planning the Event
When planning your charity event, there are a few things to consider.
Location – Are you planning on holding the event outside under a tent or inside of your home? Do you have enough space for everyone or do you need additional seating?
Food and Drinks – Are you going to have the event catered? If so, do you know who is going to do the catering and what it is going to run you?
Parking – Do you have adequate parking available for everyone in attendance?
Dress Code – Is your event going to be formal attire, business, casual or cocktail?
The flow of the event is crucial. Keep it up with these simple guidelines.
If you are unsure or puzzled about the event flow, here is a typical chain of events for you to plan:
1. Attendees arrive at the door. They will either already have a ticket or pay upon arrival.
2. Participants enjoy the food and beverages offered.
3. The host gets the attention of everyone in attendance and expresses their gratitude to the committee for all of their hard work. They then introduce the speaker.
4. The speakers make a few short remarks and thank everyone for attending.
5. Guests continue enjoying the entertainment, food, drinks, and might mingle with the rest.
6. Guests depart.
Because each event is different, this is only a guide to help you along the way. Tailor your program to your needs.
Now, that you know the basics of event planning, let the fundraising begin!
