Fall is just around the corner, with the holidays quickly sneaking up on us. The gift of giving is common around this time of year, with companies putting together fundraisers and charity events to help those in need. If you plan on putting together a charity event this holiday season, it’s always best to start planning early to ensure its success. The details of your event, including catering, entertainment and activities can be left to your Orlando event management team while you can focus on promoting your event within the community. Here are a few tips to keep in mind that can contribute to your event’s success.

Sponsors

It’s important to reach out to those who may support your event. The key to gaining support is letting donors know that their investment is worthwhile, and that you are promoting their business to your audience. Display any contributors’ logo on your charity event’s website, your event banner and even your social media networks. Not only will it help get them business, but it may even convince them to participate in your next event.

Goals

Many people may not be aware of the charity you are supporting or why, which makes it important to let your audience know your goals and accomplishments with this charity. It can be difficult building a audience when people don’t know much about your charity, or when they don’t know exactly where their money would be going. If you’ve participated in the event before, testimonials from past sponsors or donors can be a great tool in encouraging others to support your cause.

Promotion

Regardless of the funding your event receives, with proper promotions you can still get a great deal of publicity. Social networking is one of the best ways to let your friends and family know about the importance of your event. You can do a bit of traditional marketing as well by hanging up posters and fliers at your local businesses who may support the charity event. Contact local newspapers and even bloggers that would be interested in writing a piece about your event or promoting it.
