How can you raise money?
Putting on a dragon boat event for charity is a very cost effective fund raising activity. Dragon Boat Events will charge you a fee per team to run the event, and you then charge this fee to teams wishing to participate which covers the running cost. You then ask every team member to get sponsorship to take part in the event, and all sponsorship money goes to your chosen charity.
A team can be up to 20 people, with the aim of a minimum of 10 teams taking part, but hopefully even more. On this basis if you just asked every person to aim for £100 sponsorship money, then you would raise £20,000.
There are also opportunities to increase revenue by other means. If you decided to go ahead we can offer support and guidance to help you raise as much money as possible. Here are a few ideas for raising even more money for your worthwhile cause:
- Event sponsorship
- Boat advertising
- Sale of programmes
- Raffle draw
- Sale of crew changing marquees
- Landside entertainment and retail stalls
