Combining a fundraising event with a cookout

With the weather warming up as the summer solstice approaches, the season for charity and fundraising events is in full swing.

On any given weekend around the country there are walks, runs and rides for people to raise money for causes that can range from AIDS awareness to breast cancer research. However, because not everyone has the time for an event that may take a couple of hours, this may be a good opportunity to have a fundraising party afterwards for people with hectic schedules to find time to stop by.

This can allow people who wanted to show their support an opportunity to stop by and give a donation face-to-face, which can help them feel like they were part of the day's activities.

Make sure the party invitations are casual and that they don't pressure for people to attend. In terms of setting up, place a couple of conspicuous donation buckets or cans to take donations. Doing it like this may be a more appropriate way to subtly ask for donations at your cookout from your guests.

Also, if the fundraising event was inspired by someone specific, it may be nice to have pictures of that person as party decorations.
