The following checklist can be used as a guide when creating your list of tasks to complete when planning your fundraising house party. This list is not exhaustive, and should be customized to fit the scope and size of the your event.
House parties are one fun and easy approach to start fundraising. They are informal, efficient, and can easily change to fit each group’s size, needs, budget, and goals. House parties also provide a great opportunity to promote your work, network with others in the community, and serve as a morale-booster for group members.
Virtual house parties have many of the same benefits as in-person house parties. They’re fun for attendees and relatively easy to plan and execute. They provide an informal way to share about your work, network, and boost morale for members.
Fundraising is just like organizing—it’s about building relationships through one-on-one conversations. Speaking to donors in person allows you to build strong relationships, which will lead to increased donations over time.
