Introducing our new series about event organization – this is the first of the bitesize articles we will be sharing with you. Today’s focus is on pre-event pointers that will make a huge difference on the success of your events – whether it’s a gala, a banquet or just a dinner party.
ONE TOOL FOR ALL YOUR NEEDS
Research early, and use technology that handles everything you need. Consider a tool able to track guest activity and donations. The same tool should also process your donations – all types – Cash, check, credit cards and stock donations!
Send personalized invitations early! Give your donors the time to reserve that day for your organization on their calendar. Make your invites personal and use this as an opportunity to build a better relationship with your donors. Also, keep track of who hasn’t opened your invitation and follow up separately.
COLLECT GUEST INFORMATION
Collecting information beforehand allows you to give donors a better experience and makes your organization more prepared – get meal preferences and allergies information in advance. Also, give your big benefactors the ability to invite others to their table. Print personalized name cards before the guests arrive and they’ll be blown away!
