Are you looking for something fun and creative to do in order to raise additional school funds? Well, you’ve come to the right place. With all the available options to choose from, selecting a fundraiser for your school can be difficult. One excellent option is to host a talent show, which appeals to people of all ages and is a great way to bring your community together. However, if you’re new to this or looking for some advice, here are a few tips to get you started.
First things first…before anything else, create a budget containing a complete listing all of the expenses that will be required to hold your event. Things to factor into that budget include: staff, invitations/publicity, catering, entertainment, and anything else that will be required to make the event a success. As a rule of thumb, remember to leave a little extra cushion in your budget for those unforeseen costs.
Furthermore, venue rental is also a costly item to factor into your budget. When choosing the right venue, make sure you consider: location, accessibility, seating capacity, insurance, flow and layout space, décor, price flexibility, etc. Once you’ve secured a date and place, it’s time to secure the talent. Think about incorporating not only students, but maybe a couple local acts. By doing this, you are able to widen your audience.
Since fundraisers rely heavily on ticket sales to generate funds, publicity is crucial. Other than the traditional flyers and posters, social media is a powerful tool to spread the word and promote your event.
