Fundraising, How Much Does It Cost?

I get this question a lot, obviously. And it makes sense to ask it.

Fund raising profits

But I never get asked, “how much can we raise”? Which is surely a better question. I expect that most people are thinking along those lines and work it out for themselves. But there are some factors that are also worth considering.

I don't ask to be paid until after the event.

You can cancel a week beforehand with no cost.

So if you haven't sold enough tickets one week out you can walk away.

So the real question is this, “can you sell enough tickets to make it worthwhile?”

That is the main point. Everything else hinges on that.
