Are you considering holding a fundraising event? While these events can be great money makers, they can also be expensive and time consuming. This is why it’s important to have a solid game plan for your fundraiser if you want the payoff.
Successful fundraising tips
For a fundraiser to be successful, you need to determine the purpose of your event before you even get started. During the preparatory phase, you also need to choose your leadership committee, determine your target audience, put together a complete budget listing and set your fundraising goal. Once you have completed this, you can start planning the set-up, marketing your event and practicing for the big show. Finally, once the event has concluded, make sure to send thank you notes to everyone involved!
There are plenty of great ways to generate revenue for your cause, as well. Some of the most popular include 5K runs or bike races, casino night, eating contests, exercise lessons, dinner parties, dance-offs and pub crawls.
