If you’re trying to come up with a small fundraiser that’s easy to manage, a movie night is one way to do it. It’s a great way to attract participants (because you can get a lot of movie lovers to join in), to encourage them to support your cause, and to have fun all at the same time. Plus, it can be easy to organise when you have enough people and creativity to make the event possible.
Here are some steps or planning tips to consider:
- Of course, the movie/s will be the foundation of the event, so first, you have to find a movie streaming site, preferably one that will allow you to watch movies online for free. The money you can save from free streaming can be allotted to other aspects of the fundraiser.
- Select a movie or a set of films that your audience will appreciate. Look for movies with fantasy or light comedy themes for all ages. You can also pick horror or action movies for more grown-up audiences.
- You can hold the movie night inside your home or garage if you’re expecting only a few people, or find a suitable outdoor venue (perhaps a large backyard or a public park) for bigger groups.
- If you don’t have a “smart TV” (a television with web browsing specifications), you can hook up your computer or laptop to a projector (you can rent or borrow if you don’t have one) to display the movie on a big screen.
