How Fundraising Events Work
And the final word in this section goes to Event costs...
All fundraising incurs costs - particularly fundraising events where there is often a huge amount of organisation by both the charity and the outside suppliers they engage to put on the event.
But the benefit to the charities is huge as not only are thousands and thousands of pounds raised at these events, they also tend to significantly increase the profile of the charity. Remember, every single person that sponsors you for an event is a potential new donor to the charity. So consequently charities love events!
Without the help of 'eventers' charities would often struggle to provide all the services to the people that so vitally benefit from them. So yes fundraising costs but the net result is more and more funds to charity.
If you yourself would prefer all the funds you raise to go to the charity then all you need to do is pay for the event costs yourself. One further option is to ask your employer to pay for the event costs as once again this will ensure that all funds you raise go directly to the charity.
