A fund raising dinner party idea

If you want to contribute to a cause you really believe in then why not consider raising funds for a dinner party idea?

If you don’t want to go all out with a three course meal then you can do something simple but make it for a good and worthy cause. Have fun raising funds focusing on food at the same time. It's a great way to show you care.

You can invite guests to attend and pay a set fee - like $5, $10, $20 or more - you know how much your friends can afford. When handing over to the charity, organize receipts for the patrons because it's usually tax deductible. Some people won't care about receipts but it will let them see their money has gone to the charity.

You can send an invitation and on it, consider writing a paragraph or too about the charity you will be helping. It could be anything from raising money for your local school, an animal charity or to help an illness, the environment or anything you feel passionate about.

You could start a chain of dinner parties inviting someone at your party to host the next fund raising dinner party.

You can even consider inviting someone from the charity to say a few words either during the dinner or before.

Look, the even have a Dummy's book for fund raising now:

This is just something to consider on your search for a dinner party idea.

Stay tuned for more dinner party ideas soon.
