Planning a family fun day is an awesome way to raise money! Success is all in the planning for this kind of event, especially because there will be families of all ages. This kind of fundraising event takes a whole lot of time to plan, so make sure that you start well in advance. 


Before your event:

Before your supporters arrive to your fundraising event, make sure they’re ready and they know what they are required to bring. It’s best if your participants purchase tickets to your family fun day beforehand, so that you know exactly how many people you need to plan for on the day of. Allowing for day of ticket purchasing could create a lot of problems for your event, and it’s best to avoid it. 


What you’ll need for your event:

You’ll need to figure out exactly what you’re going to be doing for your family fun day. Everything for this kind of fundraising event needs to be planned down to the minute, especially with a big crowd. You’ll need to arrange for a meeting point for your participants, and have everything set up for them. This means tickets, transportation, and food. 


How your fundraiser raises money:

When you announce your fundraising event to your participants, have the entire schedule for the day planned already. Your fundraiser raises money by selling tickets, to make sure that the price reflects what you will be doing, and that you are going to raise money for your cause at the end of the day. Approach local businesses and see if they would be willing to donate items or services to help your fundraising event raise even more money. 


End up at a certain location:

Sometimes it can be hard for families to make it to the entire day, so end off with some kind of event, like a BBQ, so that participants who can’t make it to your activity can still participate. 


Bonus cash back for your fundraiser:

If you have a FlipGive fundraising campaign, you could earn up to 10% cash back on tickets, food, and anything else you need for your fundraising event.
