The wow element of the event is actually the spice and everything nice of the event be, it a corporate event, a community centric gathering or a private party. A bit of a tweak into the happening of the event can make it entertaining and immersive.
A fundraiser is generally an event centric to boring raising funbds for wide-spread social issues. This is how you can take it a notch higher on the interaction side!
Now a days people have no problem spending a bit more for enjoyment and entertainment purposes. You can add game booths or hold sports matches and the revenue generated or prize money can go in towards charity to the cause for which the event is organised. Also you can share a margin of your returns and profits with the organisation related or in association to your event.
With advancements in technology there are multiple ways in which you can raise donations for the cause of the event, you can put up interactive donation kiosks, enable UPI Payment in the name of your event, add the donate feature to your social handles, websites or even come up with an event app with this feature.
For something to be a social issue, it should be prevalent in the society, so if you are hosting a fund-raiser for HIV affected people, then try organising a performance or an art presentation by them or the organisation that caters to them. This will not only ensure authenticity of your event but also encourage guest to donate even a small amount.
Art is appreciated in all forms by all for all. So put up an exhibition if nothing else representing the social issue you are targeting or by a group of people centric to the event cause or even by some artists, so that your event becomes a memory and if interested the attendees can buy artwork and proceeds can go to the cause.
Everyone loves antics and specials , you can hold an auction bidding for vintage articles and different gift ideas or centrepieces and showcases for homes and the proceeds or a decided part of profits and gains may be sent into causes.
Buying & Selling Event
This is a newly introduced tac-tic towards raking gains for great cases and trusts , you can set up a buy& sell show inviting sellers to come and trade or do business and also invite commoners to come and buy. The margin or proceeds then can be handed to charity. This not only meets event purpose but also helps you in networking and knowing the market.
