Is a Fundraising House Party Right For Your Organization?

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Fundraising house parties can be an exciting way to earn funds for your cause. How do you know if house parties are right for your organization? How do you organize one? The Grant Whisperer answers the age-old question ‘should you bring a llama to a house party’ and more over at BlogTalkRadio. The episode gives you tips to have a successful event that puts the fun back in fundraising!

A common question is how many staff should attend the fundraising house party. My recommendation is, as few as needed. The host counts as one, add a board member, and then the staff person making the presentation. Three is good for a small house party; add more as needed for a larger crowd.

The host and staff/board member coordinate the event to ensure the project or program is highlighted in the best possible way, all the elements of the event harmonizes with your organization, and that an ask is made.
