One of the best ways to raise funds is by getting a popular figure like a celebrity or musician to perform at your charity event in order to lure as many people as possible to your event where they can buy tickets to the show as well as all types of charity goods. But not all charity hosts can afford an expensive celebrity or musician. The result is usually a lot of effort to gain a little bit of cash that is hardly enough to keep a not for profit organization going. And if you cannot generate enough cash from your events then you will either have to host an event all over again pretty soon or face the organization closing down. So how do you raise a lot of funds without a popular figure at your event? Well, perhaps these ideas might help.
Use Mistletoe & Moonlight for a fantastic Christmas party
Mistletoe & Moonlight is an event company that hosts the Best Christmas Parties in Birmingham. The main idea of the company is to host office shared Christmas parties for companies. Any business can buy as many table seatings as they like after which all employees can enjoy fantastic entertainment and delights in a four star hotel. The parties usually include DJ and disco music on a dance floor, a three course Christmas dinner, paparazzi photographers to greet you upon entry, casino tables, photo booths with prints, a 1920’s dance spectacular, a ’Gatsby Ball’ themed entrance complete with a red carpet and much more. While this Mistletoe & Moonlight usually invite businesses to share in on the fun, there is nothing that stops you from turning this event into a fund raising opportunity. All you have to do is arrange with the company to sell tickets at an extra profit or even raffle some tickets. You already have everything in place for a terrific fund rising even though you aren’t doing any of the hard events planning work.
Run a Raffle
One of the best ways to raise funds without all the hard work is by running a raffle. People love to bet on things and they especially love to support charity if there is a way in which they can win something back. The biggest problem that you will be facing is finding something that you can raffle. A lot of businesses would love to be part of your raffle and might even be willing to donate something or some service like a free holiday for your raffle prize if they can get good publicity or a percentage of the income in return.
Host an outdoor movie night
Families are always looking for a reason to get out of the house and have fun with all of the kids. You can plan an outdoor big screen movie night every other month and sell tickets to families that can set up camp on a large sports field and have fun. The best part about such an event is that you don’t necessarily have to get the latest movies. Even older movies can be great because it is more about the vibe and experience than the movie itself.
