The main goal of a fundraiser is, of course, to raise money. But organizing a successful fundraiser involves more than just getting donors together and asking them to make a donation.

The first aspects you should take into account are:

  • Your main fundraising goals 
  • The theme of the event
  • The entertainment aspect

The secret to successful entertainment fundraising is ensuring donors have a great time at your event.

Happy guests equal higher chances of reaching your goals. When people have a great time, they tend to be more generous.

So your main focus should be on creating a memorable event for them.

Granted, it’s a complex task and it will be hard to please absolutely everyone. But the tips presented in the following lines will help you with that.

Here are your best entertainment options for successful fundraisers.

1. Music and a Great Show

Most people can agree on one thing: there can be no event without music.

Music makes people feel good. But hiring a loud DJ might not always be the best option. You’ll need to go the extra mile if you want to give your donors a memorable night.

Your best option is the next level of music entertainment for fundraisers. The String Angels, for example.

They are three beautiful women with three electric violins. Their show doesn’t offer just music. Their acts incorporate choreography, stunning dresses, and classical music brought to the 21st century with a bang.

2. Comedy Acts to Make Guests Smile

If you’re considering a comedian as entertainment for your fundraiser, you need to be careful. Several popular stand-up comedians nowadays base their humor on topics your guests may find offensive.

You also need to make sure there aren’t any kids in the audience. Foul language will drive guests away.

Your best option is to go with clean comedians like the multi-talented Bob Stromberg. His style has won him multiple awards so far. He’s performed at hundreds of corporate events and fundraisers.

Here is what his exciting shows are about:

3. Inspirational and Empowering Acts

Even if music or comedy doesn’t really fit in as entertainment, fundraising events can still benefit from having an artist on stage. 

It all depends on the cause you’re trying to raise money for. If your event has more of a spiritual meaning, you can still find the right type of entertainment.
