VIP, or Volunteer Initiated Philanthropy, Volunteers take volunteering to the next level by leveraging their skills and social networks into fundraising events on behalf of Only Make Believe. It’s a chance to create your own fun event, introduce your friends to Only Make Believe and help support our program.
A few event ideas to help you gain VIP status:
Donate a Class
Do you know somebody that teaches or do you attend yoga, pilates, a dance class, soccer, martial arts/self defense, a gym, volleyball, etc? Ask the studio or gym to donate the space and the instructor to waive their fee. Invite your friends and charge a fee to attend.
Cocktails for a Cause
Do you frequent a particular bar or club – do you know somebody that works at one? Coordinate with them to choose a night when the bar will donate a percentage of the profits or a “cover charge” to Only Make Believe.
Bake some treats and sell them to your coworkers. All the sweet profits go to Only Make Believe!
TV with Friends
Host a viewing party for friends to watch the Superbowl, the Tony Awards, Mad Men or more! Charge a small fee to attend and donate the proceeds to Only Make Believe.
