Planning a fundraising event
To help you plan your event we suggest following the stages below:
- Choose your event- What type of event would best suit your interests, time availability etc. e.g. a concert, a cake-making event, a coffee morning?
- Set your fundraising target -How much can you realistically raise?
- Choose your date- Give yourself enough time to publicise the event and raise money
- Choose your venue- e.g. a pub, church hall, office. Is the venue available free and is there a fee to pay?
- How will you promote the event? – How can you reach the people that you want to come to the event –by creating a bespoke Just Giving Page using a Facebook page, etc?
- Consider the safety of the event -e.g. is there a need for stewards, will there be safe access for disabled people, are there any other legal implications e.g. need for an alcohol or entertainment licence?
- Celebrate — Finally don’t forget to enjoy your event!
