Planning a Charity Event

Written by Teresa Martinez on July 30, 2013

Being involved in charity work is said to be very fulfilling. While some are given the chance to go to other places to serve and perform charity work, others can still do their share without leaving by holding a charity event. A successful charity event requires meticulous planning to maximize the intended benefits for the beneficiaries and the sense of accomplishment for the organizers.

Charity events are not the monopoly of charitable organizations. People with the same cause in mind can actually come together and organize among themselves to think of ways to raise funds for specific beneficiaries. Every person will always have something to contribute whether in time, talent, or money. A group that intends to hold a charity event should plan accordingly and here are some suggested steps in doing it systematically.

1. Connect with a Registered Charity Organization

Logistically, connecting with a registered charity organization can make the whole process a lot easier. Charity organizations have built-in systems that have been tested by experience. They also have the specific know-how in raising money which is the main goal in this task.Organized groups just have to choose what type of cause to support for their planned event and choose the charity organization that supports it. It is also advantageous to be connected or associated with a known name since most people are more open to sponsorship, donation, and participation because of the established trust.

2. Choose the Type of Charity Event to Hold

In choosing the type of charity to hold, organizers are better off opting for the kind that they can appreciate themselves. If they are into sports, a running event may be a good choice. For people who are quite active in the social scene, holding a gala night or some high-profile party activity may be the way to go. Whatever it is, the organizers must be prepared to work for it and be in it, preferably beyond show.

3. Pool the Manpower

No charity event will ever be produced without people willing to work for it. Since this is a charity event, organizers should be looking into volunteers instead of paid staff. There must also be identified leaders to guide the whole project.

4. Find Sponsors

A charity event will always need sponsors because of funding requirements. Businesses and known philanthropists are possible sponsors. It would be better to have a sponsor that also believes in the cause.

5. Publicize the Event

The success of the charity event will depend on the amount of participation obtained from the public. It is necessary therefore to make the event known. All types of advertising and promotional strategies can be used.
