Once the idea of a family reunion has been finalized, the next thing is making a good plan and sticking to it. To implement everything and hold an amazing reunion, you need enough funds. In this post, we explore the best strategies for fundraising for your family reunion
Contact everyone involved
Though you are holding the event, it is not about you; but the entire extended family. Therefore, you need to get everyone involved as much as possible to get the needed cash. The first thing would be to establish the actual amount that is required and contacting everybody. This should be done early enough to ensure that what can be raised is estimated on time. Note that it will work well if you allow the attendants to indicate what they will contribute because they all operate at different social economic levels.
Create a digital fundraiser.
A digital fundraiser is a unique method of raising funds for an activity especially when people are dispersed across the globe. It allows the event to collect funds from close friends and other people of goodwill online. Such fundraisers should be carefully organized with full knowledge of attendants and particularly the event organizer.
Use social media
The social media presents the best opportunity to raise funds because all your followers will have something to say. Here, you can make some unique products for sale such as eBooks and digital downloads and ask followers to contribute. Do not forget to open special account where all the money will be channeled to ensure that it gets to the targeted destination.
Make sure to form a fundraising team different from the family reunion committee
While the work of fundraising may be part of the organization towards the same amazing reunion, it is advisable to separate the two. Fundraising, especially using the digital methods requires a lot of planning and the respective team should be given all the time. For example, once you organize yard sale or social media event, a good idea is letting it overflow several months so that more people can participate. Why close it after a week when it can generate more by running for two months? The special team can concentrate on how to raise the money and get the accounts right while others follow on other family reunion logistics.
