A “third-party event” is typically organized by an individual who offers to volunteer their time and efforts to organize the event. This individual may be from the general public and may include a member of a community or service group, business or company. The event is not an official activity of the charity nor is the planner associated to the charity. The individual planning the event acts independently but has obtained the charity’s approval. Third-party events are an important source of raising money for the charity and greatly assist in raising awareness about Sickle Cell Disease.
Establish a fundraising target that is achievable. This will encourage those you will be approaching to support your event. Setting your aim too high could lead to disappointment for all involved.
Create a budget for expenses that your event will incur, but realize that high expenses may lead to a lower donation to Camp Jumoke.
Another way to support our mission is by hosting a fundraiser and donating proceeds to Camp Jumoke. Here’s how:
First, establish your event date. Then, create a work back calendar to ensure you have taken all planning activities into consideration. Do not over-extend yourself or others with the event. A smaller-scale event may be easier to execute, less costly to organize, less labour-intensive and have a higher return rate. Also have a back-up plan in case of unexpected circumstances beyond your control.
