Planning an event for charity reasons is never easy. It takes great organizational skills and commitment. Besides this, you also have to come up with an excellent idea. The success of your cause depends on how original and engaging your event is.
Let us help you with some suggestions. Here are four successful ideas for charity events. They’ll promote your cause and help you raise money.
1. Organize a Fundraising Concert
That is one of the most attractive and efficient fundraising ideas. Try mixing pleasure with work. Donors have a great time and also get the chance to donate at these charity events. The money you gather from tickets goes to your cause.
You could also ask for extra donations from those who are willing to give more. Place a donation box in a visible spot.
As for the band options, we’ve got you covered. The String Angels work amazingly well with fundraising events, and everybody is sure to enjoy the sound of their electric violins.
2. Invite Guests to a Gala
Galas are also a common way to raise money for charity. They’re highly effective in building your fundraising organization’s popularity. These charity events usually involve dinner or cocktails. Thus, people get the chance to know each other.
It also helps you make many connections. Try to get and give as many business cards as you can. Use the contacts you’ve gathered to invite people to your next events.
Offer more than a friendly chat and a drink. Try to include some form of entertainment for your gala event. People don’t necessarily need to be serious at a fundraising event. Make them laugh and feel good. They’ll come back to donate next time as well.
If you need an entertainer, our advice is to go for someone like Jeff Allen. His family-oriented humor makes for a great show for all tastes.
3. Physical Activities as Charity Events
That is a successful way to gather money for your cause and attract a large range of donors. Some people are just reluctant to go out to a concert or for a cocktail.
Organizing a run or a walk is appealing to different donor categories. These type of events help you gather the entire community. It’s a good chance to increase awareness for both your cause and organization.
If your event has turned out a huge success, try more creative activities next time. Invite people to donate at a dancing marathon or a scavenger hunt.
No matter what activity you choose, promote your event through flyers, social media and the classical word of mouth method.
4. Set up a Bake Sale
Bake sale charity events might seem like a pretty outdated idea. But the truth is that they have been working for decades. They might be old fashioned, but they are still successful, especially in small communities.
Promote your idea in your neighborhood and ask your friends and relatives to do the same. Use flyers as well and don’t forget to post about the event on your Facebook.
Think about a particular product to draw people to your charity cause. Be it cookies or lemonade, people always love to grab something to eat on the street. To make these kinds of charity events more engaging, come up with a catchy phrase as a slogan.
