Have you ever put together a Australian fundraising Brisbane event such as a walk or marathon for charity or maybe it was an athletics day or a community service day, but then you found it difficult to keep track of everyone that has chosen to register for the event. Your spreadsheets got confusing and you lost track of all the rsvp emails and text messages. When organising a Charity Fundraising Event it is a good idea to utilise websites and applications that are made for such a purpose.
Charity Event applications are increasing as more and more people are seeing the importance of not only giving back to the community but also taking care of the world around us. There are a number of websites that allow a user to create a charity event and then send that event page out to all of their friends, families and guest. Once this has been done those who have been invited to the event can keep track of things such as the details of the event, the location, time, place etc… they can also rsvp to the event. These webpages can also link the event to the charity so participants of the fundraising event can donate straight through that portal.
Users can choose to make their events public or keep them private. There are benefits to both options. If you a user chooses to make their event private the guest list and event details will remain private and the event can be restricted to what the user wants it to be. The benefits for making your charity event page public is that people who are involved in regular charity work who may be looking for more events to participate on can easily access your event webpage and get involved, either through giving or through participating on the event ro both. The websites become a database for many charity events and allow a community to get come together to support each other for another’s cause. Go here for more information regarding fundraising
These websites and applications are incredibly user friendly and provide step by step instructions on how to set up the page. All information from how to create an account to customising your webpage is given on the website. Important information to have ready includes, date, time, location, address and ticket information (if any is required). Users can then change the colour scheme of their event page to customise it to colours that suit their event.
A good tip is to think of the theme of your charity and choose colours that match that. If you are fundraising for breast cancer, the colour for breast cancer is pink so think of having a pink colour scheme for your webpage. If you are fundraising for clean water, choose colour schemes that revolve around the colour blue. Do some research into your chosen charity or foundation if you are not familiar with them and build up as much knowledge as you can.
This information will also be useful when you write your event page bio to inform others of what you are fundraising for. The next step after the colour scheme is choosing an appropriate event page image. The image must be reflective of the type of event you are hosting as well as the charity you have chosen. These images can be fun and playful or the can be somber and serious.
Once the event page is setup go ahead and share it with everyone you know and keep track of your charity event registration and fundraising goals.
