TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISING EVENT

1. Fundraising: Night Program Only

  1. Get several well-liked teachers / administrators and high profile students to volunteer to get hypnotized at the performance. Advertise this school wide.
  2. Get several local business owners, politicians and other high profile citizens to volunteer and advertise this prior to the event.
  3. Have an article put in the local newspaper. If possible, have paper interview artist who is doing the event.
  4. Have local radio station(s) that cover your area to do a remote interview with the artist. Get a popular DJ to volunteer to be hypnotized.
  5. Put up posters in high traffic areas including high schools and middle schools within a 45 minute drive of the performance location.
  6. Play a demo video at all district schools at least a week before the event. Possibly sell tickets in the cafeteria during lunch at each school you advertise at.
  7. Possibly join forces with a local service group and split the profits.
  8. Get tickets printed and pre-sell them for at least $2.00 less than what will be charged at the door. Make tickets available at multiple locations besides the sponsoring group selling them. Possibly run a contest for the person who sells the most tickets will get a prize. Often times a local business will donate this prize.
  9. Get local businesses to advertise and make up a program that will be handed out at the door at the night performance. Also, recognize them during the introduction of the evening’s event.
  10. Try to get advertising included in the daily announcements at least 3 or 4 times prior to the event.

2. Fundraising: Day / Night Combination

  1. Everything listed under # 1. Fundraising: Night Program Only.
  2. Try to get one or two teachers / administrators to participate in the day assembly too.
  3. If you have a middle school or junior high in the same building or close by, invite them to the day assembly and get 1 or 2 teachers to volunteer for the day assembly.
  4. If you have an auditorium that you are utilizing for the night performance but doesn’t hold the entire school population, possibly do two day assemblies.
  5. Have 4 – 6 students available to assist in setting up when the artist arrives.
