Start Planning!

Plan what you are going to do

Set up a committee

  • Ask people who have a lot of experience or who can offer time and energy to the project.
  • One individual should be in charge of delegation and organisation - The Committee Chairperson.
  • Try to use the skills and resources that you have available in the most effective way possible.

Select an event

  • Brainstorm about ideas :Some of the best fundraising opportunities are born from group discussions!
  • Pick a relevant event to the audience e.g. a charity football match in your local football club. You will increase your chances of holding an event that is both a success in terms of raising money and a great experience for all involved.
  • If you need inspiration take a look at our fundraising ideas

Select a date

  • Attendance will typically be higher on the weekends depending on the event.
  • Look at the community calendar to make sure that there are no other major events planned for the same date.
  • Give yourself enough time to adequately prepare for your fundraiser.

Find a location

  • You will need a venue that can both accommodate all of the guests and that has the facilities to provide all your event requirements (e.g. furniture, refreshments etc)
