Fundraising events are essential to many organizations’ health, especially charities and other non-profits. It takes a delicate balance of things to get the events just right – a strong mission statement, engaging but not overly distracting entertainment, a dash of the wow factor, and, finally, the right fundamentals with stage and sound.

Why does any of this matter? Can’t you just make do with a regular PA system? Do you really need a stage? Let us make a case for pulling out these stops for your next event.
Competition is stiff – you have to stand out
If there’s competition in fundraising events, then D.C. is where the ultimate league players come. The world has no shortage of causes, and the many organizations that rally and raise money for them.
If you want to stand out, you have to do more than stage an event. You have to create an experience; a connection. For that, you need an experienced and highly professional partner to take care of the fundamentals like audio, video, and staging.
A good balance helps improve your donations
Many events get it wrong when it comes to audio. They either drive guests outside with a band that plays too loud during dinner or they annoy guests with poorly balanced microphones creating feedback and other awkward audio-visual moments.
What the microphones sound like might seem like a small matter when you’re thinking about raising money for a good cause, but if you’re serious about your efforts, then you’ll take all these aspects seriously as well. If you can’t understand the presenter, it’s just noise.
Success needs investment, but you needn’t break the bank
As the old adage says, “you get what you pay for.” While it does seem counterintuitive to spend more money on a fundraising event, you will thank yourself when your high-quality event attracts larger donations and more long-term support from grateful guests and newly inspired supporters.
Consider your event an investment on behalf of the cause for which you created the fundraiser. Having said all that, you needn’t break the bank. A partner like All Stage and Sound can tailor the package to maximize both quality and good value.
Stage, sound, and video are fundamental – get them right, and everything else will follow
While you’re focused on your mission statement, guest list, menu, and a suitable venue, it’s easy to forget the essential fundamentals like stage and sound.
An excellent way to make sure that an event goes smoothly is to first deal with these most basic things. You may want to book your stage and audio before you can even think about a band or an emcee.
In the event planning stage, if you get the fundamentals right first, the rest will steadily fall into place.
Fundraising is a big industry, and you need experienced and well-equipped industry partners who can provide you with the right services to make your event successful. At the end of the day, it’s still about donations.
At All Stage and Sound, we will always do our part by providing the audio-visual foundation that makes your event go off without a hitch, or screechy feedback loop.
