Springtime Events on Flipcause

Plant seeds in the springtime for better fall fundraising.

Are you looking for new ways to build support for your cause? Or wondering how to grow your donor list for year-end fundraising? 

Plan a springtime event to engage your community. 

Events are a great way to:

  • Give thanks to your donors and volunteers.
  • Build awareness for your work.
  • Grow your list of potential donors by inviting friends & family. 
  • Have fun while raising money for your cause.

Hosting an event in the spring will inspire engagement (and donations) in the fall. Events give you the chance to meet your supporters in person and build strong relationships. Remember: donors don't think about giving as a financial transaction. They're looking to create a human connection—and events give you the opportunity to do just that.

Some organizations host an annual fundraiser, like a Golf Tournament or 5K Fun Run. But your event doesn't have to be a big production! A simple get-together with your supporters can be a meaningful part of your engagement strategy. Whatever type of event you decide to host, you'll have the chance to cultivate personal connections to your cause.

Planning your event:

  • Reach out to potential corporate partners in your community who can offer sponsorship or donated items. 
  • Send invitations early. Make sure to invite: board members, volunteers, donors in your area, partner organizations, and friends and family. Consider setting a deadline for RSVPs so you can plan to accommodate everyone. 
  • Secure space for the event. 
  • Create impactful campaign messaging to showcase how supporters are making a difference.
  • Set a goal and measure success
  • Recruit volunteers to help you set up and run your event. With Flipcause, you can easily add volunteer shifts directly to your event campaign.
  • Remember: small details will end up taking up more time than you expect. Give yourself enough time to get things done. Then, on the day of the event, be prepared to have a good time even if everything doesn't go exactly as planned.
