This handy guide is broken into two sections: simple events and complex events. The simple events can be put together quickly with minimal time, supplies, and volunteers. The complex events require more planning and manpower, but will generate more revenue for your organization.
Every event has a quick overview chart so you can see at a glance if the event is a good fit for your group. You will immediately be able to assess the degree of effort required in six major categories: estimated cost, obtaining sponsors and donations, finding a venue, recruiting volunteers, preparing for the event, and executing the event. You will find the events that best meet your financial and social goals and objectives.
Now you can reach your fundraising goals in exciting and original ways. Whether it is for your school, sports team, church, or any other group or nonprofit organization, you will find your next event here.
