There are hundreds of charity events that take place every year. More than $40 billion was raised within the United States alone back in 2005 through charities. Irrespective of the size of the charity, there is one thing which is for sure; charities have the potential to make a huge impact. Here are a few theme ideas to help make sure your fundraiser is a success:
Sporting themes seem to do quite well nowadays. But, this doesn’t mean you need thousands of participants in order to call it a successful event. You just need to set goals for the event and make sure they are reached. Marathons, bike rides, etc. while wearing a mascot or superhero costume tend to work well. Cross-dressing themes are a good idea for events dominated by men.
Events like wine tasting or charity balls are glamorous in their own right. But adding a unique theme to them can help spice up a boring party. You could go for a Hawaiian theme, an ice theme, murder mysteries, salsa, or anything similar.
But, if you want your event to truly stand out from the rest then you should think of creating a theme of your own. There are some charities which have some very obvious themed parties which won’t really work for others like the pink parties for cancer charities or dog shows for shelters. All you need is some imagination, and you will be able to come up with a cool fundraising idea for your charity.
You could also consider creating themes around medical professions like Halloween parades through local hospitals. Just think about what your charity stands for and then base the theme around it.
All you need is some creativity, and you will be able to host a successful charity event that people will remember for a long time to come.
