When you are planning on checking out a potential venue for your fundraiser, you must always consider how accessible it is. We’re not just talking about making it accessible for those with disabilities. We’re talking about those that do not have the luxury of having their own cars.

How hard is it to get to the venue? This may help to determine how warm or cold the reception of the people will be when it comes to your actual fundraiser.


While people love to support good causes, they will always consider their own comfort above everything else. Before they decide something is worth going to, they will consider the venue itself. Is it open air? Is it air conditioned? Is it something that’s got comfortable bathrooms?

Such questions are only some of what potential donors ask themselves before deciding to RSVP to your fundraiser.
