Planning a Company Party or Corporate Event:  The Checklist


 1. Determine your purpose. Is this a celebration, a fundraiser, an open house, etc.

 2. Select a date. Having two dates in mind works best as you go through the initial steps; you may find you need it!

 3. Determine theme for your event. This can be a great way to build excitement for your event.

 4. Determine Budget. If not done already, be sure to have this down before finding locations, caterers, printers, etc.

 5. Select location. Be sure you visit locations and get written proposals for your event.

 6. Interview and hire an Event Planner, if applicable. Get everything in writing!

 7. Select your event committees, if needed. Have a team of people to make the workload manageable.

 8. Promote your event. Newsletters, brochures, flyers, radio spots, etc.

 9. Write up your event's agenda. Even if this is a company holiday party, it is helpful to have guidelines, games, etc.

10. Find and hire caterer and entertainment. If these are being used and not provided by location.

11. Select menu. This is determined usually by type of event and time of day.

12. Find printer for your event. Invitations, flyers, promotion items, logos for event.

13. Order hold-the-date cards and invitations. Now's a great time to use that logo for great brand marketing!

14. Select and purchase decorations. Balloons, murals, table covers, party favors. You can even have your logo put on them.

15. Purchase Door Prizes. If having them, incorporate your logo if at all possible.

16. Get hotel room blocks. A great way to save money if you are using a hotel for your event.

17. Obtain audio visual equipment, if needed. Some hotels offer this service if your event is held there.

18. Obtain RSVPs. Most caterers will need a confirmation at least a week prior to your event.

19. Finalize plans for the event. Meet with committee members at least a week in advance to finalize plans.

20. Enjoy your event! You have earned it.. now is the time to enjoy!

Fundraising Tips:


Have modest goals - selling 500 tickets at $10 each is easier to do than selling 100 tickets at $50 each. 500 people will buy more items at your auction and give your company more exposure.


Ticket sales are important - so be sure you have this part of your event planning in place before you plan anything else. If you do not sell enough tickets, you won't have an event anyways.


Get volunteers - a great way to save money while you plan a Fundraising event. You may be fortunate enough to find an Event Planner in your city who will volunteer their services, as well as possibly entertainment, as this is great PR for them and many enjoy working for charity events.


Find Reasonable Catering - this can often be found by working with a local restaurant (tip - contact a new restaurant or catering service who will want the exposure to serve their food at your event!).


Use local amateurs or semi-retired entertainers - They will save you money on your entertainment costs, if they are not willing to volunteer their services.


What's hot in Fundraisers - Gala dinner/dance evening parties top the list. While combining fundraising with a fashion show. art exhibit or restaurant/bar grand opening are also very popular.
