How to cut costs at your next fundraising event Secrets your vendors don’t want you to know Prepared by: Anisha Robinson Keeys Lance-Lee Planning / Best Practice Fundraising www.bestpracticefundraising.com 215.300.5112

Before the event • Book a location during slow months: September through November, January through early April • Consider lower cost alternative locations • Breakfast and lunch events are most cost effective • Food stations instead of plated www.bestpracticefundraising.com

Before the event • Book entertainment far in advance • Consider alternative entertainment (ipod, junior talent) • Select "in season" floral items • Personalize and create unique centerpieces www.bestpracticefundraising.com

During the event • Create sign templates that you can personalize year after year • Cost saving ambience: red carpet, creative lighting, pipe and drape • Enlist local art schools • Don’t forget you are tax exempt—sometimes venues can mistakenly add taxes to your bill www.bestpracticefundraising.com

During the event • Enlist volunteer manpower for logistics (sports teams, halfway houses) • Buy reusable name tags that guests can leave behind as they exit • Have auction consignment? Get savings with their leftover items • Solicit local luxury car companies to underwrite valet parking www.bestpracticefundraising.com
