By the time you get to this step, you’ve probably already held several discussions and planning sessions about the day of your fundraising activity. However, here are a few ideas that may help you finish with a successful event.

Remember, your event will be completely unique, if you have an idea that works for you, please send us an e-mail and we will share it on our Facebook Fan page.

Private Events:

Most schools will probably host a private event, not open to the general public. If you are hosting a closed event, then you didn’t invite members of the public and you probably won’t need to collect registration fees on the day of the event.

Instruct students to turn-in final donations on the Monday before the event. Additional donations will continue to trickle in even on the day of the event, but the amounts should be minimal.

For a school, it is simple to make all donations due no later than the Monday before the event. This gives you time to tabulate all donations and have prize levels figured for all participants by the day of your event.

Public Events:

When hosting a public event, most of your registrations will be taken online through your FundMonkey page or you can email them a registration form.

Most of your registration fees will be collected online by your deadline, however, be ready for new participants wanting to register on the day of the fundraiser.

Order extra t-shirts for these last minute arrivals.

All donations should be turned in on this day. Trusted members of your event committee should be assigned to handle donations as they are turned in because they will be responsible for a significant amount of money.

Use the forms found online for managing your participant’s registration and event status.   These forms, in Microsoft Excel, can be printed or used live from a laptop computer.
