All special fundraising events are different. Each have their own special set of circumstances and requirements.
Our Community Matter's event management team has pooled their many years of experience to create a fundraising event checklist to help you get started on your planning journey.
This list is not meant to be definitive, nor will all sections of each category apply to all events. It is meant to be used as a tool to remind you, inspire you and encourage you. It includes prompts on communications, publicity, venue, catering, talent and VIPs, risk management and evaluation.
You can use it as you would any planning tool and adapt it to your own specific needs.
