A Guide to Planning Your Summer on PTA Events: Fundraising Ideas & Community Fun!

Summer Raffle

Raffles (Online) are the latest feature we have introduced on platform and a fantastic way to boost your summer fundraising.

Why? Raffles not only raise funds for your community projects but also bring people together for a worthy cause.

Engage with your community

Try speaking to local businesses to see if they would be interested in donating prizes to your PTA in return for sponsorship at your event. This would help to build long term partnerships that would be advantageous for your community going forward.

Hint: For premium members or those looking to become one, creating long term partnerships could help you to monitise your platform via the sponsorships and business directory features. Use this FAQ to find out how.

At PTA Events, we have found that raffles succeed when they are run alongside other events - all of which can be organised safely and efficiently online, using the PTA Events platform.

Festival / Fun Day

Swap out traditional Summer Fairs for a Festival/Fun Day extravaganza! It’s an inclusive gathering that promises enjoyment for everyone involved.

Craft a captivating theme for your event to ignite the fundraising spirit in all attendees. Building excitement around a common theme fosters engagement and excitement.

Promote your event by using the QR codes that are auto-generated for every event and set up volunteering slots so that your community members can easily give their time to support your cause. To widen the scope of interest, consider inviting members of the local community to attend your event if it is being held in a public area.

Hint: Make it easy for your community to get involved with your fundraising by ensuring your PTA site is well populated with important event information. Removing the possibility of confusion or misinformation ensures that nobody misses out. For more help on editing events, check out this helpful FAQ.
