After all, you can’t spell fundraiser without fun, and the more entertaining the event is for your guests the more money you may end up raising in the end. The following are a few tips to keep in mind while planning your event!
Making sure your fundraiser is a success should come always come first. In order to do this, you need to create a budget for the event and set a fundraising goal. Knowing how much money you are going to spend and how much money you want to raise is essential. Without those numbers in mind, you won’t have an easy way to tell whether or not the fundraiser was successful.
Next, you need to come up with a great marketing plan. You can rely on people who you know will show up to spread the word to friends and family members, but that’s not all you should do. Use social media to your advantage to spread the word, and think of other cost effective ways to let people know about your awesome event.

Whether you bring in attractions or activities for kids to enjoy, have live music, or anything else, the goal of the fundraiser should always be kept in mind. There’s no reason people can’t have fun at your event, but you can also center the fun on the theme of the entire evening.
