Planning a fundraiser is an incredibly rewarding experience , because you are serving a cause greater than yourself. If you are new to the fundraising world, there are a few essentials you need to keep in mind. These important details, such as knowing your goals and your party place, may influence many other decisions you make through this planning experience.
Set Your Goals
Before your fundraiser can even begin, you need to determine why you are doing it and what you hope to achieve. Set your goals, both realistic and ideal, and make sure everyone on your leadership team strives to reach them too. Goals might include: A specific amount of money raised, number of donors in attendance, and people supported by the fundraiser.
Pick Your Location
A big factor in creating a great fundraising event is to find the right party place. Whether you choose a five-star restaurant or a laid-back party place with bouncy castles, work closely with the staff to throw a great fundraiser. Many locations are honored to be a part of fundraising benefits, and they will help you and your guests to have a great time.
Market Your Event
The only way people will show up to your fundraiser is if you tell them about it. Look for free or low-cost ways to get the word out on your fundraising event. Many organizations use social media platforms to create events and allow a safe website for people to submit their donations. You may also partner with a local printing company to print low-cost flyers or invitations. Use as many connections as you and your leadership team have available to find donors.
