Looking to spice up your next fundraiser event? Make it virtual! Whether you’re looking for a way to engage people who might be contributing from home, or you’re just looking for a way to make your annual event a little different this year, the Eventzee fundraiser scavenger hunt app is the perfect solution for fundraising.
Check out our team’s tips below for why we think Eventzee is the best solution for your upcoming event!
Raise Funds Through Hunt Ticket Sales
The point of any fundraiser is to ultimately work towards supporting a cause. With a fundraising scavenger hunt app, organizations can allow people to play for free and donate what they like, or you can request player entrance (ticket) fees.
Some organizations choose to allow players to participate in teams or individually, and have the entrance fee vary accordingly. Other Eventzee clients have added incentives for teams based on various fundraising thresholds including early access to challenges, bonus challenges and more!
Allow for Team Play!
With Eventzee’s unique team play option, organizations can choose to allow players to play individually or in teams of any size. All players can still contribute on their own phones to their team’s score.
One of the biggest challenges with virtual events is ensuring that all players are engaged. With the teams option, you can allow people to work together to complete a goal. Players can support one another in an effort to compete against other teams, or to win a prize at the end of the event.
In the height of the pandemic, and worried that they would have to cancel their fundraising event altogether, The Salvation Army of Buffalo created an amazing fundraiser using Eventzee’s fundraiser scavenger hunt app where teams of two were able to participate from the safety of their cars. These team members worked together as they traveled around Buffalo exploring arts, history, and more.
Make It Educational!
What cause or organization does the fundraiser support? Having donations towards a cause is wonderful, but what’s even better is educating people on benefits of the organization. Whether raising money for medical research, or gaining support for local youth organizations, fundraisers that educate players have a longer standing impact than those that just ask for monetary donations.
With Eventzee’s fundraiser scavenger hunt app, there are seven different task types to choose from when building the event. One of the most-loved task types is the quiz category. Test players’ knowledge of the cause they’re supporting by offering multiple choice questions. You can also ramp up the difficulty and use text challenges instead of quizzes where players must “write in” the correct answer. With quizzes and text challenges, players might end up learning something new about an organization they care about!
Allow People to Join the Fun From Anywhere using a Fundraiser Scavenger Hunt App!
Especially today, with many restrictions on gathering sizes and traveling, it’s important to allow players to have the option of joining in on the fun virtually. They may not be able to run around a campus and find specific hidden clues, but there are plenty of ways to keep them engaged and entertained, while supporting the cause, in their own homes and local communities!
Recently, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass held their first-ever hybrid fundraising event with Eventzee’s fundraiser scavenger hunt app. The event, which is typically in person, gave players a timeframe to complete the challenges. Some challenges were available to those who were attending the event in-person, while others were for those playing from afar. The event was a hit and the organization was able to raise almost $50,000 that will directly benefit the youth of Central Kentucky.
Keep People Engaged and Motivated With a Prize!
While all players should be ultimately participating in this fundraising scavenger hunt to support the cause, there’s no harm in kicking it up a notch and motivating the group to get competitive with the end goal of winning a prize.
Prizes can be as small as a item of the organization’s SWAG, or something even bigger. Better yet, offer the winner the ability to have a portion of the amount fundraised donated in their name!
Eventzee is the perfect way to throw a fun and amazing fundraising event, and allows people to really become ingrained in the company or organization they’re supporting. As the most customizable option on the market, Eventzee’s team is eager to work with you to make this your best event yet!
