Choose a Committee 






Most volunteer organizations have a constantly changing membership base.  A rotating event committee will keep your annual events consistent and successful.  






When selecting committee members, choose people with diverse professional and technical backgrounds. 






At least one committee member should have proficient knowledge of Microsoft Word or Open Office Writer 






Basic computer skills and knowledge of MS Word are all that are required for setting up the FundMonkey custom web page.  

PTA/PTO parents and fundraising groups change every year and so do the geeky and technical talents of your team.  FundMonkey provides a dependable level of consistency that may be replicated year over year ensuring your groups success regardless of their skill sets.    

Another key element, in order to maintain consistency, is a dedicated Event Committee to manage the details of the event.   This committee will be responsible for all the decisions regarding when, where and how your fundraising event will be held.  These details are important if you want to duplicate and improve upon your year over year success.       

Many groups are successful with a four member/couples event committee that required a two year term commitment.   After the first year, two of the four committee members/couples will step down, and two more committee members will be added.    

Adding two new committee members every year will keep people from getting burned out and allow their ideas and energy to add to the success of your event.     

The event committee will be responsible for: 

·         Choosing an activity as the basis for your fundraising campaign: walk-a-thon, read-a-thon, bowling etc… 

·         Selecting the participants for the event (applies mainly to schools) 

·         Selecting the event location 

·         Planning the route, if necessary 

·         Signing up and scheduling volunteers 

·         Registering the event license on-line (requires a credit card or can be pre-paid with a check by downloading our registration form) 

·         Creating the FundMonkey web page 

·         Generation Pledge codes by adding event participants into the Event Management section of the web page and e-mailing their unique pledge codes to them.  

·         Soliciting local businesses for their support (donations  or prizes) with mailings and follow up phone calls 

·         Purchasing t-shirts and other materials 

·         Hosting the kickoff meeting at the beginning of the campaign.  

·         Managing weekly donation/pledge collections. 

·         Managing the details of the actual event.  

Remember to delegate certain activities to volunteers, you can't do it all yourself.    

Each FundMonkey fundraiser is unique, be prepared for other variables as they arise.
