Planning the Perfect Charity Event

Listed Under: Blog

Charity events can be hugely effective for raising funds, awareness, or both.

However, they can also be immensely costly and time consuming. Without sufficient planning, charity events can leave so drained of funds and enthusiasm that you might wish you never bothered.

Like so many things in life, the secret to a successful charity event is good preparation.

The Fundraising Authority site has prepared a good 10 step guide to planning the perfect charity event. Their advice is worth reading in full, but it can be summed up as follows:

  • Set yourself a clear purpose, a clear goal, and a rigid budget
  • Make sure you have a dedicated and reliable team on your side
  • Plan the logistical aspects of your event as far in advance as possible
  • Market your event aggressively
  • Decide upon your target audience and cater to their specific needs
  • Ensure that everyone involved has a clear idea of their duties and responsibilities
  • After the event, take time to issue thank you notes to everyone involved
