Hosting a charity event is exciting, but it does require a lot of thought to get it right.  There are so many worthy causes out there and with the ease of donating online, you need to show guests why they should attend your event. As a result you need to make sure it’s engaging. You can do this by:

Showcasing how guest’s donations will make a difference 

Showing donors where their money is going and the positive impact it’ll have on your cause will make them feel as though they’re making a difference and encourage further donations. You can do this by:

Highlighting how attendees’ donations are making a difference will leave guests inspired and encourage them to make contributions outside of the event. 

Providing opportunities for guests to get involved with the cause beyond the event 

While it’s important to meet your event donation goal, you also want to foster long-term connections with your donors to help you raise money outside the event. You can do this by:

Incorporating fun ways for people to get involved with donating 

Incorporating fun ways to raise money will encourage more people to donate. You can implement things like:

By adding creative ways to donate you can further incentivise giving while making it fun, helping you leave lasting memories and encourage future contributions.   

Providing photo opportunities 

Photos are a great way to create user-generated content that raises brand awareness. By providing opportunities for photos through implementing things like photo booths you can inspire them to capture memories and post them on social media. This can help you reach a wider audience and encourage further engagement, helping you reach donation targets and make a real difference for your cause.
