Fundraising Events in San Francisco
A fundraising event is a great way for corporations to build goodwill with employees and the community. While these events are good for raising money or other resources that a charity needs, they can also be time-consuming and stressful. If you're planning a corporate fundraising event in San Francisco but feel weighed down by the details, contact Zoli's Events & Weddings. We can help you come up with a plan that saves you time and creates a successful fundraising event.
The Initial Meeting With Your Event Coordinator
During our first meeting, our event coordinator will discuss the details of your fundraising plans so we can get a better idea of how we can help you. Some of the questions we might ask include:
- What is the organization or charity benefitting from your fundraiser?
- What is your fundraising goal?
- Do you have any other goals, such as publicity or creating new networks?
- What is your budget?
- Who is your target audience?
- Do you have any ideas for the actual event?
Picking a Date for Your Fundraising Event
As you're planning your fundraiser event, research when other organizations in San Francisco do fundraisers throughout the year. If you're planning a large event, you don't want it to coincide with another fundraiser and make people have to choose which one to attend.
Coming Up With Corporate Fundraising Ideas
Once we have a better idea of your fundraising goals, we can help you create the ideal event. You can come up with an idea that relates to your charity or choose something unique and different. A few corporate fundraising ideas include:
- Bowling tournament
- Silent auction
- Scavenger hunt
- Vegas night
- Car wash
- Competitive events
- Bingo night
Selecting a Fundraising Event Venue
No matter what type of event you decide on, you'll need a venue to host it. We can use our experience with corporate event planning to help you find the ideal venue. By not having to contact venues on your own, you'll save plenty of time and hassle. We'll do the research ahead of time to make sure that all the venues on the list you get to choose from are:
- Large enough to accommodate the number of people you think will attend
- Open on the date of your event
- Within your budget
- Easy for people to find
Some venues you might consider for your event are:
- Outdoor space
- Community center
- Meeting room
- Conference room
- Banquet hall
- Convention center
Creating a Fundraising Event Marketing Strategy
Unlike parties or other celebrations, you can't send out invitations to every person you want to attend your fundraiser. Instead, you need to rely on a marketing strategy to get the word out about your event, and we'll help you create one. A few ways you can reach your intended audience include:
- Social media
- Print, radio, and television advertisements
- Direct mail
- Phone banks
