3 Organising your own Fundraising Event 1. Don't go it alone Gather a group of friends or colleagues who can form the basis of an organising committee. 2. Decide What you Want to Do Look at our Fundraising Ideas and decide what would appeal most to the people you and the committee know. If your buddies are out in the hills every weekend, maybe a sponsored climb would be more appealing than an expensive black-tie benefit. But if they're all party animals, a cycle ride might not be the way to go! Rule No. 1: You should be able to name at least 50% of people who you know will take part in/attend the event before you start. Remember, advertising does not sell tickets, even a great idea does not sell tickets. Only people sell tickets. 3. Set a Budget and Goals Draw up a budget and goals for the event, including gross and net income, number of tickets to be sold, number of raffle prizes to be obtained, etc. Think how much you wish to raise for the charity; ideally your costs should not be more than 50% of what you raise. Think about how you will deal with deposits and up front costs if you will not receive revenue until later - perhaps you could have an 'early-bird' ticket price to encourage people to buy early, or perhaps you need a sponsor. Decide how many people you aim to attend (remember rule no. 1) and how much you can sell tickets for (or how much you'll expect them to raise). Are there other ways you can raise income, eg. by adding a raffle or auction, or by asking companies or friends to provide cash sponsorship? Then list all the expenses you can think of; rental of a location, invitation/ticket printing, food and drink (including corkage), insurance, flowers, band/disco, transport, etc. 4. Contact Focus Ireland to obtain an Event Authorisation Form. 5. Draw up a Plan of Action Remember to check things like insurance, Garda permits (for street collecting), how you will look after the money etc. Draw up a plan of action with action items, a deadline for each action, and a person assigned to each action. For example: Action By Date Who Book venue and entertainment 3 June Mary Approach 5 shops for raffle prizes 10 June Jane & Paul Organise design & printing of tickets 18 June Siobhan Send press release to local paper 20 June Peter

4 6. Anticipate the Worst Think about what could go wrong and have contingency plans. 7. During the event Will you need volunteers from the committee to take tickets, sell raffle tickets, make a speech etc? Will you need people to help clean up? 8. After the event How are you going to look after the money you raise and get it to Focus Ireland? (Cheque or bank draft?, Safe/Cash Box?, Bank account?) Don't forget to thank everyone who helped. A phone call is nice, a personal note even better.
