Many individuals and businesses have causes that are near and dear to their hearts. Whether it is feeding the hungry, ensuring equal educational opportunities for children, or reducing the stray pet population, many non-profit organizations rely on donations to keep their doors open. There is no better way to raise donation money than by having a fundraiser, and reserving a spot at a Baltimore event venue will ensure your fundraiser goes off without a hitch.

Fundraiser Ideas

Silent Auction

During a silent auction, your guests write down their bids for products or services on a piece of paper. The bids may be visible to other participants, or they may be kept confidential. At the end of the auction, the person with the highest bid wins. This can be a fun way of raising funds for a charitable cause, and your guests will love the anticipation of waiting to see whether or not they have won.

Raffle Fundraiser

Like silent auctions, raffle drawings are a classic type of fundraising event. All you need is a few prizes of interest and raffle tickets to raise money for your cause. To garner as much participation as possible in this type of fundraiser, it is important to keep the ticket prices reasonable and the prizes enticing. Having a few prizes that are high in value can help increase ticket sales and donations.

Dinner Party

Who doesn’t like sharing a meal and enjoying great conversation with acquaintances? When you throw a dinner party to raise money for your charity, not only will your guests get the pleasure of enjoying a delicious meal, but the benefit of donating to a worthy cause. You may choose to have a themed event, or you may prefer a classic seated dinner. In either case, NPRMC has the food covered with our delectable and affordable catering services.

Why Hold Your Fundraiser at an Event Venue?

It might be tempting to have a fundraiser in your home or office, but working with an event venue is beneficial for several reasons. First, event centers often help with planning the event, and their years of experience will ensure that every detail of your fundraiser goes smoothly. Many event centers also offer catering so that you don’t have to worry about the time, stress, and expense of providing your own food. Additionally, quality event venues also offer high-tech audio/visual services for music, speeches, and presentations, as well as security and valet parking to ensure the safety and comfort of your guests. Holding your fundraiser at an event center can streamline the entire planning process, allowing you to focus on your goal of raising money for your charity.
