Updated: Aug 8
Essential to popularizing your fundraising event is building community participation. You've got to make sure that your community is fully aware and able to participate in your exciting fundraising event. This starts with finding the right sponsorship partners who are interested in supporting the cause.
All eyes on you…that's the kind of feeling that you get when you're hosting a fundraising event. There are countless tasks to be completed and deadlines to be met: securing sponsors, deciding on the location, figuring out the theme, buying prizes, etc...
If you are getting ready to host a fundraising event, your first goal is likely to increase monetary donations and overall sponsorships, right? And yes, while the money is important, ensuring that your event has the best atmosphere possible is also just as crucial. An event with adequate lighting, state-of-the-art sound, and an abundance of wholesome treats will be remembered by guests long after the last bite of dessert. The question you're probably asking yourself then is, “How do I make sure my event stands out?”
Here are some tips:
Gamify your giving
Use social media
Take online donations
Go digital with your plans
Stimulate sales with a buy one, get one deal
Develop special programs and events
Use technology to simplify the checkout
Host an online auction
Sell the cause, not just tickets
You really need to make a splash! No one will remember your presentation if it was like everyone else's. That's why visually creative fundraising event ideas are so key: They'll help you stand out from your peers, raise more money, and attract those top-tier future employees.
Fundraising has always been a big challenge. Before virtual fundraising became a trending idea, organizations often struggled to prove their value by holding various fundraising events. The thing is, fundraising events are expensive and exhausting on both the organization’s and its patrons’ sides. Not only do they cost billions of dollars every single year to organize but they also take up precious time at the expense of other important events and projects.
