TIPS FOR GETTING FUNDED
#1 GET CREATIVE
From hiring a yummy dessert truck like Chunk-N-Chip to wearing fancy dress at the big ball game, being creative builds moral. Focus on creating a wow factor to capture supporters’ undivided attention! Plus, students are more likely to spread the word if the event is fun!
#2 GET ORGANIZED
Lights, camera, action! Once you have an idea, don’t wait for everyone else to book your entertainment. For best results, contact your vendors at least 3 months in advance. This will let you pick your players, and lock the dates down.
#3 GET EXPOSURE
In addition to word of mouth, posters, flyers, press releases, and posting your event on local community calendars are buzz builders that are sure to generate a crowd. Add Social Media into the mix and get your students to do the same. No one spreads the word faster than a teen with a smartphone!
#4 GET FUNDED
While fundraising is fun, don’t get lost in the excitement. As an event coordinator, you have the responsibility of ensuring you meet your goals. Let us help you focus on the big day by hosting a reliable, and self-sufficient event. Who doesn’t love one less thing to worry about?
