There are few tasks that are as difficult and rewarding as planning a fundraising event. It requires taking care of numerous details, keeping track of food, guest lists, entertainment and venues. Then you have the added pressure of trying to make plans that will attract people to your event and make them want to donate to your charity, organization, school or cause. But when it all comes together, fundraising can be quite fulfilling. NY Party Works can make your job easier. We’ve been in the party and event planning business since 1993 and we have the products and services to make yours a success. So we want to give you some tips and ideas for planning a successful fundraising event.
Turning Your Holiday Party into A Fundraiser
Any type of party can be a fundraising event. In fact, with the holiday season coming, it’s a great idea to get into the spirit of the season by turning your annual year-end office party into a fundraiser. There are many ways to get started. American Intercontinental University’s blog suggests asking your employees to recommend organizations they support and to try to form a partnership with them.
You can encourage employees to volunteer for the charity you pick and offer prizes at your holiday party for your top fundraiser. Your company should also consider matching any employee gifts. You can make the holiday party a celebration to mark the end of your fundraising drive, or you can make the event itself a fundraiser for your charity or cause.
Whether or not your fundraiser is related to the holidays, you want to be sure it’s successful. According to the website The Fundraising Authority, which gives advice for non-profits, marketing your event is critical. “You need to convince your supporters that your organization and event are worthy of their time and money,” the website advises.
Making Your Party an Attractive Event
NY Party Works has the products to make your event attractive to potential donors. One of our most popular packages is a Casino Night. We can make your fundraiser feel like a night in Las Vegas. NY Party Works can rent you tables for all of your favorite casino games. Your donors can roll the dice at our craps table, deal the cards at our poker and black jack tables or lay chips down at our roulette wheel. And since we play with chips and play money, it’s not real gambling, so anybody can play. So go ahead, and place that big bet. You’ll be having fun and helping a worthy cause. Your guests can exchange their money in for prizes at the end of the event.
You can use real money or play money with one of our most exciting party rentals. You can be placed in a booth full of money with our money cube or inflatable money cube.
