From creating event committees, staffing your event, making up a budget, printing materials, organizing a speaking program, and how to make money, putting together fundraising events is complicated. However, events can also be rewarding and lucrative for your organization and its cause.

The event components in this tutorial are for large events, but the concepts will hold true for smaller events. For example, if you have an individual hosting a fundraiser for you, that person should be responsible for raising the money for the event. Do not fall into the trap of partnering with someone who merely wants to provide the use of his or her home without doing the fundraising.

Download the whole Fundraising: Events tutorial to learn the best ways to make money from holding events.
