How to Make the Most Out of Fraternity Philanthropy Events
Both sororities and fraternities focus on the importance of giving back to the communities where they are placed. No matter if you’re hosting an event, having a food drive or another initiative, it’s essential to make the most of your philanthropy. Philanthropy is vital to those we are helping, and it helps bolster a good reputation on campus. Keep reading for a few tips on making the most out of your fraternity’s philanthropy event.
Establishing a Purpose
While this seems pretty obvious, you may need a purpose beyond raising money. Maybe you want to gain more exposure for your cause, or perhaps you want people to know more about your fraternity. Either way, it’s essential to establish the primary purpose for the event and understand how you’ll get there. This will guide the planning and execution of the event.
Co-hosting a philanthropy event with another fraternity, sorority or other campus organization is a great way to gather more participation. Inviting another group also helps spread the word about your event. Besides, individuals in other organizations are great resources for new and fresh ideas.
It’s crucial that your philanthropy event is branded well. This includes creating great graphics for social media, t-shirts and even including matching ticket stubs (if necessary). All of the items for your event should have similar colors, fonts and styles. This will make sure that your event is consistent and people will recognize it when they see it.
Spread the Word
Spreading the word about your philanthropy event is easily the most important thing you’ll do. If people don’t know about your event, then they can’t come. To spread the word, create flyers to hang around campus, speak to different organizations (including sororities and other fraternities) and putting the word out on social media. By covering all of these avenues, you’ll get great exposure for the event.
Fraternity philanthropy events are a crucial part of being a member. We always strive to make a great name for ourselves and help out those who need it most. Hopefully, these tips will help you create your best philanthropy event yet.
