ORGANIZE A SPECIAL EVENT IN YOUR COMMUNITY

If you are interested in organizing a special event in your community, please know that the TS Alliance can provide you with valuable insight and guidelines to assist you. Please use theĀ ideas below to help determine what type of event you would like to plan.

Type of Event

The amount of time you have to commit to this project may help you determine what type of special event you are interested in organizing in your area. Please refer to the Event Menu for a brief description of events that other volunteers have organized.

Recruit a Committee

It is imperative that you recruit volunteers to assist you in organizing an event. Remember that people want to volunteer for a good cause and will help you in your fund-raising efforts because you personally asked them to take an active role. Make a list of people that you have helped in the past with their cause by making a donation or volunteering your time for their event.

It is also important to recruit committee members that are interested and can afford to come to your event. For example, if you organize a golf tournament, make sure that you recruit active golfers to help sell your golfing spots.

Determine a Budget

Prior to determining the cost to attend your event, project the expenses for the event. Once expenses are determined, you can set the cost for people attending the event or determine the recommended donation amount. Remember, that you are organizing the event to make a profit. Participants want to know how much of their ticket price will be given to the TS Alliance. You will need to set your prices accordingly in order to benefit both the participant and the TS Alliance.

Use the TS Alliance as a Resource

Remember that the TS Alliance staff is here to help you meet your fund-raising expectations. We can help you brainstorm, provide suggestions and put you in touch with volunteers who have organized a similar event. Feel free to call (800) 225-6872.

Don't Have Time to Organize a Special Event?

You can take an active role in fund raising for the TS Alliance by participating in a national campaign. Please refer to the Event Menu for a brief description of national fund-raising campaigns.
