Whether you’re planning a big fundraising party or a small charity dinner, here are four top tips to guarantee a successful charity event.
Start advertising and marketing early on
To make the best impact and have a successful charity event, make sure you advertise your charity event early to get as many guests as possible. Send out invitations with clear information on, don’t forget to include what charities you will be supporting and their logos. The more people you invite, the more funds you can raise! Promote your event to your followers on social media and via email. Post images of the charity venue to grab people’s enthusiasm, and make it clear what the purpose of the occasion is.
Plan your theming
A clearly defined theme creates value because it makes your event completely exclusive. If you were to choose a charity dinner with a French-Indian-fusion and molecular gastronomy theme, the chances are no other venue in the country (perhaps the world!) will be hosting an event quite like that on that day. That gives your guests something unique to look forward to.
It’s also worth finding out whether your guests would prefer a formal dinner instead of a live music act, or a comedian instead of a dance act (and so on). This way, you’ll know your budget is used wisely.
Now is your chance to reward your supporters for their loyalty and expand your donor base. Tell everyone about your latest achievements, and discuss what you hope to do next. This is also an opportunity for you to learn more about how your donations are already helping charities and making a positive impact on people locally, nationally or around the world.
Showcase your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Charity events are great opportunities to show people that your business is fulfilling its CSR. Tell people how the funds you’ve been able to raise from your donors have helped you support your local community and protect the environment. Raise awareness, share your insights, and gain new ideas from other guests.
