Fundraising Tips and Ways to Raise Money for Your Charity
When planning a casino fundraiser, casino charity event, or charity poker tournament, having a realistic goal of how much money you would like to raise is the key to a successful event. This will determine the price of your admittance fee, script voucher prices and expenses. Once this key goal is determined you can then begin to figure out your pricing and expenses.
Revenue for a casino fundraiser will usually come in the form of the following activities.
- Ticket Sales
- Casino Table Sponsorships
- Additional Casino Chip Rentals
The main key in reaching your above casino fundraising goal is to get people to attend your casino fundraising event. Everyone involved in your casino fundraiser committee should be responsible for selling tickets or providing names for mailing and invitation lists. Determining head count is critically important, not only for the amount of casino tables you will need, but also for food counts. This is probably going to be your main source of income and your fundraising goal depends directly on getting people to the event.
Sponsoring casino tables is a great way to not only pay for the casino tables but to provide additional revenue towards your casino fundraising goal. At a minimum, table sponsorships should at least cover the cost of the table. However, in our experience, many business’ are willing to not only contribute money for the tables, but to donate prizes as well. Why not invite your sponsors and their employees to attend your casino fundraiser? Prepare nice placards to sit on each table. Ask your sponsor if they would like to have small brochures or literature for their products on the table. They should understand that not only is their donation going to a great cause, but they are getting some great advertising as well.
As part of their entrance fee guests are usually given an initial “Chip” of a nominal amount. The idea here is for them to “Rent” additional “Chips” by making an additional donation to your charity. We suggest having a table set up and attended by one of your charity members to take additional donations for “Casino Chips”. Keep your suggested donation in the range that your guests are comfortable with. You may want to consider having a credit card processor to make it easier for your guests to make additional donations.
You may also bring in additional revenue towards your goal with food and drink sales and silent auctions. These can vary wildly depending on the type of event, where it is held, the type of guest and the value of prizes that you have at the auction. All of these things can be taken into consideration when planning your casino night fundraiser.
Casino Party USA has created “Casino Fund Books” filled with coupons that the players can “Cash In” at the table games. The books are provided for additional incentives for players to be able to DONATE ADDIITIONAL FUNDS at their event.
At your FUNDRAISER, Casino Party USA will bring these books and help to solicit DONATIONS from your guests.
Casino Party USA will help you run a successful casino theme party fundraiser with our staff not only providing management of the casino games, but also great ideas for contests, raffles, drawings, and other ways to boost your charitable contributions. Many clients hire not only Casino Party USA for their events but, specifically ask for several of our staff to emcee and host the event.
