"This was one of the most helpful online courses I have ever taken. It was well organized and very well thought out. I have been doing this sort of thing on a volunteer basis for many, many years but I learned so much. I wish I had taken this course years ago and gone into this field professionally back when I was first starting out. I'm never sure when I sign up for online courses if you are really going to get your money's worth and find the information helpful but this one far surpassed my expectations!"
What Makes Planning Fundraising Charity Events Different ?
The job of anyone planning charity fundraising events is more complex than other types of event planning. Not only do you need to plan and execute a flawless event, but you also need to educate and create awareness of the organization, recruit and accommodate sponsors, and, of course, raise money while spending as little as possible!
Here are just a few things that are imperative to know before thinking of fun fundraising event ideas:
- Understand the importance of (and reason for) working with committees
- Special budget considerations when planning fundraising events
- Understand the huge importance of sponsorships in planning your event
- How to recruit, manage, and work with sponsors, and how to ensure that they stay happy so that the event is a success
- How to plan your event for the least amount of money
- Various methods for raising money at your event
This information is imperative for you to know before you start planning fundraising charity events; if you don't know the basics, then it doesn't matter how creative you get. And, just as importantly, if you don't know how to properly find, recruit, and take care of your sponsors, then your event is in danger of failing.
If you have an interest in event fund raising and special events, this course is for you!
