Hosting a fundraising event is still one of the most efficient ways to raise money (and awareness) for a nonprofit organization.
These types of events are ubiquitous in the fundraising world.
However, many non-profit institutions are struggling to come up with novel and fun charity event ideas which breathe new life into their organizations.
If this is an issue you are well-acquainted with, you should keep on reading.

If you see a beautiful painting, you cannot help but stop and stare at it for a while, right? That is because people are naturally fascinated by things which are visually appealing.
Why not leverage people being instantly drawn towards art to maximize the results of your next event?
You could just host a painting exposition which is somehow related to the mission of your organization within the event. Alternatively, you could take things to the next level and make your fundraising genuinely entertaining by booking a live painter.
What’s great about her act is that it allows donors to watch as the painting emerges into its final form. Also, you can auction the painting at the end of the event and further increase donations.
Attendees will get to witness art being born, and your organization will have a better chance to raise more money. It is a win-win situation.
