How to Host an Event

Thank you for considering to host a fundraising event to support the work of CEIS. These tips may assist your planning.


A SUGGESTED EVENT
$30/30 Challenge

Churches are encouraged to hold a $30-30 challenge with members each year (this could happen at any time of the year). Contact CEIS to organise a brief presentation to coincide at your church, so that members can know the valuable impact that all donations have.


OTHER EVENTS
Pray

Give thanks that students are able to seek, question and explore God, Jesus and the Bible through CEIS. Pray that CEIS is able to continue the service provided to students at school, with a positive impact for all involved. Pray for God’s wisdom and direction for your fundraising event, to His glory.

Decide

  • Choose the type of event, who to invite, the location and best time for maximum participation
  • Make an event checklist – the CEIS fundraising PLANNER  might be useful
  • Register your event below (optional – for CEIS)

Register 

Money – goal | budget | online

  • Some people choose to set a fundraising goal to help motivate donors.
  • Do consider the cost for yourself. CEIS appreciates any funds raised but does not expect hosts to over-commit on event costs.
  • Online fundraising is a great option for those unable to attend – click here.

(NB: CEIS is unable to provide insurance coverage, promotional costs or any other event related costs. All events are ran as private, individual events. CEIS is able to provide advice and marketing brochures or a CEIS team member may be available to speak at your event.)

Raising awareness of CEIS

Choose a moment at your event to share how donations made support CEIS. Possibly:

  • invite a CEIS representative to give a brief talk
  • use the CEIS video below
  • invite guests to follow CEIS on Facebook
