Mission Multiplier Fundraising Event Planning Handbook

This handbook provides a step-by-step guide on planning and hosting successful fundraising events for Mission Multiplier. By holding these events, we aim to raise funds to offer free ministry training, expanding our impact to reach every rank and region of the world.

1. Define the Purpose and Goals

Every event starts with a purpose. Clearly outline what you aim to achieve with the fundraising event - raising funds, increasing awareness, recruiting volunteers, etc. Set tangible, measurable goals for the event (e.g., "Raise $10,000").

2. Set a Budget

Calculate the cost of the venue, food and drinks, audio-visual equipment, marketing, and any other expenses. This will help you set realistic fundraising goals and ticket prices.

3. Choose a Venue and Date

Select a venue that aligns with the size, formality, and atmosphere of your event. Choose a date with plenty of lead time for planning and when most people are likely to be available.

4. Plan the Program

The program should include:

  • Welcome address: Introduce Mission Multiplier and express gratitude to attendees.
  • Featured Testimony: Showcase a video from our "And-Then" YouTube channel, allowing the audience to hear firsthand the impact of our ministry.
  • Main speech: Explain the need for free ministry training and how it can make a difference worldwide.
  • Fundraising Ask: A specific call-to-action for financial support to help us continue to provide free ministry training.
  • Closing remarks: Thank attendees for their time and contributions.

5. Promotion and Marketing

Promote your event through various channels such as social media, email newsletters, and local press. Highlight the cause and the difference their contributions can make.

6. Registration and Ticketing

Create an online registration form for attendees. Make sure to gather their contact information for follow-ups and future events. Tickets could be sold to raise initial funds.

7. Execution

On the day of the event, ensure that everything runs smoothly. Assign volunteers specific roles, such as registration, technical support, or food and beverage service.

8. Post-Event

After the event, send a follow-up email to attendees thanking them for their support and sharing the event's success (funds raised, number of attendees). Keep them informed about how their donations are being used and invite them to upcoming events.

Remember, the goal of these fundraising events is not just to raise funds, but also to share the mission of Mission Multiplier, inspire attendees with real-life testimonies, and motivate them to become part of our mission to reach the world with free ministry training. The ultimate success of a fundraising event is the long-term relationships built and the sustained support achieved for our cause.
