Five steps to fundraise online for CALM

Five steps to fundraise online for CALM

Zoom Calls, live streams, and facetimes; Team CALM are embracing the new normal and we want you to (virtually) join them. 

Whether it’s a quiz night with colleagues or an art class for friends and family, get together for an evening (or morning, noon or night) of fun while spreading the word and raising vital funds for CALM and our life-saving services.

It’s easier than ever. Don’t believe us? We’ve put together five steps you’ll need to set up your virtual event, so even though outdoors is on pause, you can still connect with your mates, fundraise online for CALM, and have a bloody good time.

Step One - A quick how to

Just like organising an IRL event, organising an online shindig is a pretty impressive feat. We’ve put together some tips on how to get started below. Even if you’re familiar with setting up events to support CALM, this one will look a little different – after all, it will be completely virtual!

Here’s a quick how-to.

Step Two - About CALM

It’s great to know how your hard work will help us be there for whoever needs us. And your acts and audience will love to know too. There’s loads you can learn and share with anyone who will be performing/hosting on the night of the event.

Step Three - Get ready for your event

Virtual events are now easier to hold than ever. There are loads of ways you can promote your event, and on the night you can utilise the various tools and functions of your chosen app.

Step Four - On the night

After all your planning and prepping, the day is finally here! It may feel like there’s a lot to remember, but with all the work you’ve done leading up to the night, you’ve got nothing to worry about. This little checklist will help you enjoy it!

Head here to make the most of them.

Step Five - See it in action

The day of your event will be here before you know it. Remember, while fundraising is a hugely important part of keeping CALM’s life-saving services running, spreading the CALM message and creating a life less miserable is just as important. If your friends, family and supporters learn just one thing about CALM, then you’ve nailed it.
