Non-profit organizations have a lot on their hands, but fundraising through hosting an event is one of the best ways to gain new and old support for your cause. Although the planning and promoting of an event is a challenge, there are three main reasons why it can be well worth it.
Social Media Outreach
When you host a fundraising event for your non-profit, the people who donate to your cause will share your fundraiser on social media. As many people have hundreds of contacts through social media, the number of people who will see your brand and its fundraiser will be massive, easily reaching into the thousands. A fundraiser event will not only offer a set time and place for the community to come together but give a chance for many eyes to see your brand exists. In short, it builds brand awareness.
As alluded to above, a community event in itself has plenty of benefits that are more or less obvious. While much business happens over the Internet, there is nothing like the personal engagement one gets when meeting face-to-face. Events are exceptional for encouraging many people to donate in one place at one time. When your non-profit business gathers people in a local event, your physical location will gain a deeper appreciation for your presence.
Lots of Fun
Of course, even though planning an event is a load of work, which can be challenging for busy non-profits to endeavor, events are undeniably a ton of fun. Depending on your target audience, you can offer them a time to do something they’d enjoy most, like walking a marathon, participating in a talent show, or partying on the dance floor.
A Note on Planning
If you have never hosted a fundraising event before, it may be difficult to know where to start. Designate a select team of people to do the planning and coordinating.
