Using events to raise awareness and money is not only an effective fundraising tactic but for many reasons can be the most fun. Almost any kind of event you can think of can be spun for fundraising purposes, but for the sake of keeping this blog reasonably short, we thought we would remind you of a few options! Walkathons
Walkathons or sponsored walks are popular fundraising events that can be organized on a local or national level. Participants pledge to walk a certain distance, and their friends and family sponsor them for each mile walked. It's an excellent way to get people active in a healthy way and involved in the cause while also raising funds.
Everyone enjoys live music in some shape or form, so why not pair an evening or afternoon of tunes with a cause you care deeply about? Not only can the proceeds from ticket sales go towards your cause, but you can include other elements such as 50/50 draws, silent auctions, and more to maximize the funds you raise! Gala Dinners
Think your crowd would look forward to dressing up for the evening? Gala dinners when done right can generate not only generous donations, but interest amongst the community as well. Much like a benefit concert, you can wrap a few different fundraising tactics into one evening by including a live auction, guest speakers, and entertainment. With the right planning and execution, a gala dinner can be an incredibly successful fundraising event.
