Focus your event on a specific appeal - You can support any one of our amazing appeals, that way you know your donation is going to a great cause!
There’s are few things you need to remember to ensure your fundraising event is successful. Below we have listed all the things you need to consider below:
Of course it all depends on the type of fundraising event you are thinking about doing, but here’s some of the basic things to think about:
Register your event online by emailing email@example.com this will mean you’ll be given a letter of authorisation to show this is a legitimate fundraising campaign.
Build your online fundraising page on:
Think about the weather, the amount of people you would like to attend, facilities available, disabled access ect.
Don’t forget to ask about freebies! Businesses may be interested in donating things or giving a discount code for a good cause. This is great for things like raffles, bake sales or tombolas, so never be afraid to ask!
Set a budget for the event, make a list of all the essentials you’ll need and stick to it.
Set a realistic fundraising target, and give yourself enough time to set a plan of how to achieve it!
Don’t forget that there are laws around where and when we can fundraise. We would ask that you respect local businesses and members of the community by adhering to the below rules:
Make sure you ask the owner’s permission in advance. Leave plenty of time in case the person you ask has to check with someone else.
In order to collect donations in the public place you will need a licence. For details around this contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t forget to tell people about your event or complain! If people don’t know about it, they won’t donate. Below are just a few things you can do to publicise your event:
Social media is a great way of letting a lot of people know about your event without much work. Write a post and don’t forget to tag @ROHCharitablefunds or #TeamROH and we’ll share/re-tweet! If your organising an event, don’t forget to tag any other businesses involved and get them to share the post too!
