5 Benefits of Using a Scavenger Hunt App for Your Next Fundraiser

5 Benefits of Using a Scavenger Hunt App for Your Next Fundraiser

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!

6 Admin Tips to Running the Perfect Virtual Scavenger Hunt Event

With the current pandemic, it’s more important than ever to be innovative when it comes to running and hosting virtual events. While this new way of life may seem daunting, Eventzee has your back and we’re ready to help you host your most successful event. The following 6 tips will help you along your admin adventure and make the most of your virtual event!  

Check on Your Players Real-Time to See Their Performance

See real-time engagement from players during your virtual scavenger hunt by viewing the dashboard within Eventzee’s admin tool. Decide if players need guidance and encouragement, but don’t worry about finding each group or player in person to do so. You can even reach out to players to help- but more on that later!

Offer Prizes and Promotions 

One of the best ways to motivate people during your event is to offer them a promotion or prize at the end of their participation! This encourages people to push forward and complete all of the challenges to the best of their ability. 

Many downtown and tourist associations, like Eventzee clients
Champaign Center Partnership of Champaign, Illinois, use virtual scavenger hunts to increase traffic in local shops and businesses. During these events, people are offered promotions and deals at these locations, and can receive prizes for visiting the most destinations during their visit.

Choose a Clear Winner and Avoid Ties

Leave the scoring up to us! While you’re running your event, you don’t need to worry about allocating points and breaking ties, unless you want to. Eventzee’s virtual scavenger hunt platform has built in techniques to make sure no players get the same score. For example, Quiz Challenges can be set up to award the most points to the person who answers the fastest.

Communicate Directly to the Players

Need to get in touch with your players? You don’t need to corral everyone in one room, or go around and talk to everyone individually. Eventzee allows you to communicate with players through announcements or you can send them a direct message through the chat feature.

Make Your Event Stand Out In All The Right Ways

Eventzee’s virtual scavenger hunt app offers the most challenge types compared to others on the market. Switch up your event by using various challenge types, and keep your players on their toes! CrimeCon, a true crime convention, utilized Eventzee’s virtual event tool at their event this past year to engage players in a different way. With the platform, they were able to engage their attendees, who were both virtual and in person, and test their knowledge of true crime! This app also allowed attendees to engage with virtual and in-person vendors and work towards solving mysteries to win prizes.

Choose the Best Virtual Scavenger Hunt Platform For Your Organization

There’s no shortage of platforms for running a virtual event, however, before you choose which one to utilize, make sure it’ll provide everything you need to run the perfect event.

With our team of experts on your side, you’ll be able to understand the tools and have flawless execution of your best event yet!

Freeze Tag Launches Team Events With Eventzee

Freeze Tag Launches Team Events With Eventzee

We’re excited to announce we have officially launched a state of the art team event option for the Eventzee application! While in the past, event participants could potentially work as a team under a single Eventzee account, this worked better for in-person events. The extended functionality comes as a highly requested feature from clients, particularly those hosting team-building or ice breaker-style events.

“With virtual events, coordinating with team members in different locations and maybe even different time zones is already difficult,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “With the Eventzee Teams version, team members can be in different locations and still contribute to their overall team’s score.” 

The main difference between Eventzee team events and regular events is that team events have extra Team Scoring options for event hosts to specify their requirements. Unlike some other scavenger hunt apps, each team member’s score can affect the overall team score in Eventzee team events, if the host chooses. Event hosts have the flexibility to require all team members to complete a challenge, just one team member, or any number in between. In addition, depending on the member requirement they chose, event hosts can specify whether they want only the top N or bottom N scores to count, or to have all the scores added together.

Utilizing Eventzee’s Team functions and white label program, Barnes Harley Davidson launched the exclusive Squad Wars: Coast To Coast app. This exciting, multiplayer, motorcycle riding experience has riders driving to landmarks and businesses throughout North America.

Event hosts also have the option to create teams and assign participants to them, or to leave it up to their participants to form their own teams. For the latter option, a minimum and maximum number of members can be specified so that teams must be within that range before they can start to work on the challenges. Regardless of which team-forming option event hosts choose, they always have the ability to create their own teams and move participants to different teams, if conflicts arise.

In events where participants are allowed to create their own teams, the team captains are given a Team Manager role which allows them full control over their members — they can invite, cancel invites, accept or reject join requests, promote to the Team Manager role, and remove. In addition, the Team area in the Social tab only displays messages from other team members, unlike regular events where the Chat is open to all participants. This private team chat allows team members to use the Eventzee app to plan, strategize, and coordinate their efforts. 

If you’re interested in hosting an Eventzee scavenger hunt visit our website and contact our team to set up the best package for you. You can also email us at sales@eventzeeapp.com or call us at 714-210-3850 x15. Eventzee is ideal for trade shows, conferences and orientations. Businesses can use the app to drive traffic to specific locations, promote vendors or products and increase social interactions, while observing appropriate social distances. Some clients use Eventzee to hold contests and give away prizes to their most engaged customers. There are many ways Eventzee can help you achieve your business goals.

NEW Ready-Made Party Packs Make Event Planning a Snap!

NEW Ready-Made Party Packs Make Event Planning a Snap!

What are “Party Packs”? Party Packs are premade scavenger hunts with 20+ Photo, Video, and Quiz challenges written around a central theme, allowing up to 25 players. These packs are perfect for birthday parties, family reunions, weddings, any gathering of friends and family – and we’ve done all the work for you.

When you purchase a Party Pack, you will have admin privileges which include: having the ability to approve and reject Photo and Video submissions from players, the ability to download submitted photos and videos for your own use, and more! They do NOT include the ability to edit the challenges (if you would like that ability, please Contact Us to set up a Custom Hunt). As we are offering this service of creating a private scavenger hunt with challenges already written for use in your event, the price for Party Packs is $49.99.

If you had purchased one of the Themed Huntz we sold in the past, this may sound familiar. As mentioned earlier, the main change is that instead of offering a single entry ticket into a scavenger hunt, which you would purchase as a player, we are now offering an entire premade hunt, which you would purchase as an event host. In addition, each of the Party Packs has DOUBLE the amount of challenges that the Themed Huntz had, bringing them to 20 challenges each, with the exception of the A, B, ZEEs! Party Pack, which still has 26 challenges. Some of the new challenges we added are Video and Quiz challenges, so you and your attendees can get a taste of these new challenge types, though the majority are still Photo challenges.

These hunts have been designed so you and your attendees can do them in your home, but as always we suggest getting creative! Some of these challenges will be items you’ll search for, while others you’ll need to craft yourself.

In order to purchase a Party Pack, simply visit our shop here: https://www.eventzeeapp.com/party-packs/. Once the purchase is complete, you will receive an e-mail with instructions like the one shown below.

This e-mail covers everything you need to know to finish your Party Pack event setup, so make sure to read it carefully! If you run into any issues, please feel free to e-mail us at support@eventzeeapp.com.

Lastly, here’s a rundown of the Packs! Again, for those of you who had seen the Themed Huntz, the descriptions remain mostly the same as before, but we have created an entirely new Super Spooky Season Pack as well!

Super Spooky Season

Jungle SafarZEE

Encourage your players to be creative as you’ll have a better variety of photos and videos to download and use! If you’ve got any prizes to award, you can use the event leaderboard as the basis!

Freeze Tag Launches “Snowmass Mountain Mission” Experience Powered By Eventzee

Freeze Tag Launches “Snowmass Mountain Mission” Experience Powered By Eventzee

Freeze Tag, a leading creator of location-based mobile social games, has launched a new community outreach project with the Town of Snowmass Village’s Tourism Department, located in Colorado, using the Eventzee scavenger hunt app. Utilizing Eventzee technology, the “Snowmass Mountain Mission” is a unique engagement experience that guides locals and tourists alike throughout the scenic mountain village in colorful Colorado.

“The exploration of Snowmass Village is a terrific use of our Eventzee platform,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “We’re proud to be able to offer alternative event options at a time when communities are looking to connect with one another.”

The three-month engagement takes players throughout Snowmass Village, CO where they’ll learn more about the village’s history, explore various scenic areas, and visit local businesses. With more than 70 challenges throughout the area, players will be kept busy all summer long. All across Snowmass players will have to take photos at distinct locations, film videos doing specific activities, and answer quiz questions about the area.

“Now more than ever it is important for us to have self-guided experiences around the Village – experiences that guests and locals can do any time,” says Rose Abello, Tourism Director, Snowmass Tourism. “We are excited to partner with Freeze Tag to create such a fun Village-wide experience. The Snowmass Mountain Mission is a great way to explore Snowmass Village, while spending time with friends and family in a fun and different way.”

The partnership with Snowmass Village is part of the Eventzee Tourism program which aims to build up communities through the mobile platform. This program is ideal for communities looking to set up a citywide self-guided tour, drive traffic to historical areas, or increase visitor engagement for local vendors and businesses, and more. Eventzee is a unique solution that combines technology with exploration, two key aspects of the growing tourism industry.

Welcome the NEW Eventzee App!

Welcome the NEW Eventzee App!

We’re excited to announce that a new version of the Eventzee app will be available for download! The latest version of Eventzee has been totally reworked to offer virtual events and scavenger hunts for any occasion. Whether you’re looking for a team building exercise, new ways to engage with your customers, or a fun family activity, the NEW Eventzee app provides the most features of any scavenger hunt app available.    

Eventzee, the state of the art virtual event and scavenger hunt app, is now available on iOS and Android devices. Those interested in utilizing Eventzee’s services can learn more at eventzeeapp,com.

We’re excited to release the new Eventzee, complete with a collection of brand new features, so allow us to break down some of our favorite aspects of the new app!

Fresh Facelift

One of the most noticeable changes is the release of the new Eventzee logo! The mission of the new app is to offer a tool for people working together to solve challenges, and interacting with one another via virtual events and scavenger hunts. Our new logo appropriately showcases the power a group of diverse people have when they work together to locate, and complete challenges in a real world setting.

Home Base

Each Eventzee event will now feature three distinct sections within the dashboard. 

Event- What would be considered “Home,” this section includes the event description and details, allows you to see your stats particular to that event, and there’s even a spot to upload a profile picture!

Challenges- This section will show you a list of all challenges. The different challenge types are defined by their corresponding icon. When you click on a challenge you’ll then be able to see the challenges’ expanded description, any accompanying photos, and here you’ll also complete the challenge depending on the type. 

Social- Here’s where you can interact with other players in your event! There are three features within the Social section.

  • Feed- Here players can see one another’s approved photos and videos and “like” them to cheer each other on. 
  • Chat- Using this feature players can chat amongst themselves, strategize and work together
  • Leaderboard- See how you stack up against other players! Can you go for gold? 

Challenging Choices

The NEW Eventzee app offers 7 different Challenge types!

  • Photo– An Eventzee classic! Photo challenges encourage interaction and drive creativity.  
  • Video- Take your challenge to the next level with 30 second video submissions.
  • Quiz- Challenge your players’ minds with multiple choice questions. 
  • GPS- Prove that X marks the spot by checking in to specific GPS locations. 
  • QR Code- Locate and find hidden QR codes. 
  • Text- Gather information from your players via fill-in-the-blank questions, and approve the submissions in real time. 
  • Information- Share important information regarding challenges, locations, and more with informational tips. 

Any mix of challenges can also be combined together in a Grouped Challenge to require players to complete a number of challenges at a time in order to earn the points. This is specifically helpful if you want a variety of challenges to be completed at one location. For example, guide players to a specific location with a GPS challenge, have them answer a Quiz question based on Information in that area, and take a Photo while you’re there for good measure! 

Challenges can also host informational photos within the description as well for an alternative clue to what the challenge requires. For example, use an example photo to show players a specific statue or landmark they’re looking for. This section is also a great spot for showing branded images to showcase your organization’s logos, marketing materials, and more.

Admin Extraordinaire 

Now running your event is easier than ever! Admins of events can approve photo, video, and text submissions within the app itself. You’ll still use the web admin tool to set up your hunt, create your challenges, and more, but the new app makes approving on the day of your event much simpler. 

If you’re an admin you can access this section via the hamburger menu. From there a new menu will appear where you can review submissions, message players, download user media, post announcements and more. 

A BRAND New Opportunity

Another exciting aspect of the new Eventzee app is the ability for clients to host their own white-label version of the Eventzee app. This totally unique app branded to your specifications uses the Eventzee technology, but operates as a separate build hosted by the client. Although development costs depend on the scope of the project, this high-end option is perfect for brands that want to make an impact in a partnership with Eventzee.

Our company has already kicked off its first white label project with the release of the Barnes Nation app this Spring! Hosted by Barnes Harley-Davidson in BC, Canada, Barnes Nation is a lifestyle app designed to get motorcycle riders out exploring the open roads and meeting new friends.


The NEW Eventzee app is an entirely new build, so you will not update your current version of the Eventzee app. Instead you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store. 

Over the next few weeks we’ll be transitioning a number of aspects to the new system. We will keep the previous version of the Eventzee app running for some time, but we do plan to shut down that version in the near future. You can read more about how it relates to Munzee Events on the Munzee blog. Although the older version of the app will be available to use, it will be removed from the app store later this week and not be available for future installs. 

We’re also working on a new pricing platform, but ultimately want to work with clients to best suit their needs. If you’re interested in hosting your own Eventzee virtual events and scavenger hunts please fill out the contact form on our website and we’ll start working with you today! Thank you all for your support over the years- we’re excited to bring you a streamlined app with new challenges and other new features!
