Organizing a fundraising event can be very beneficial for your organization, no doubt about it. It can build quite a positive reputation, and people will be more willing to support an organization that does something for the community.
If the public perception is positive, then you can be sure that this will have favorable effects on your organization’s goal. That is why it’s safe to say that the right event idea can be worth millions.
So, in the following article, we put forth a few excellent ideas to help you get started.
Set Up an Art Show
Art has the power to capture people’s attention. It evokes both strong feelings and thoughts. So perhaps, one of the most impressive traits that it has is that art has the power to spark a dialogue.
If you choose art as the central theme of your fundraising event, you should consider one of the following ideas:
- Organizing an exhibition. The chances are that there are at least a few local artists who want to gain a bit more exposure for their art. You can ask them to donate some of their works. If there are any potential buyers, you can put the art up for auction.
- Organizing an art sale. You can turn this type of event into an open fair, where artists put their works up for sale.
- Talent showcase. In this type of event, the focus will be entirely on the artists. You can hire them to showcase their skills to the audience live.
For this last part, we can suggest an incredible idea for entertainment that will surely take the attendees by surprise: sand painting in front of a live audience.
Joe Castillo is one of the most renowned sand painters in the world. His artistic prowess and ability to create a compelling story are unmatched. And that’s why his shows are a treat to watch.
Organize a Benefits Concert
A benefits concert is a very ample way of raising funds for a noble cause. Music has the power to get people together and to unify them toward a common goal.
Not to mention, the prospect of listening to good music while helping to make a difference in the world sounds tempting to anyone.
For this type of event, make sure you book a venue that’s large enough to host a band and a large audience.
As for the artists, you can recruit local artists to promote local talent. Besides that, we also suggest hiring a professional musician or a band.
Having many years of experience on stage, they are bound to offer your audience a truly unforgettable experience.
Put Together a Dinner Party
Whether you want the event to be formal or a tad bit lighthearted, one thing is for certain, a great dinner party never fails.
Parties of this type are usually luncheons, cocktail or wine-tasting events.
While everyone is gathered to enjoy their delicious meals, we recommend you provide them with some entertainment.
In this instance, we can suggest hiring a comedian. Someone with an energetic attitude and a lot of humor is bound to make your fundraising event a blast.
