Our top 8 invitation tips for charity events

Make your next charity event the most successful yet by sending an informative invitation that gets guests excited. Here's how!

Send a digital invitation

Electronic invitations make it easier for guests to RSVP while still looking professional.

Choose an attractive, eye-catching design

Some recipients may not be familiar with your organization, so make sure your invitation makes a good impression by choosing one that aligns well with your cause.

Explain what your organization does

Include information about the impact your nonprofit has on your cause to make guests feel good about buying a ticket.

Call out whatever sets your event apart

Holding a silent auction? Featuring a band? Give recipients more reasons to attend.

Enable donations right on your invitation

That way, even if a guest can’t come, they have another way to participate. Add a donation button (powered by our partners at Pledge) to an Evite invitation. Just select your charity from the right-hand sidebar when creating your invitation and the charity will receive 100% of your guests’ donations. Don’t see your charity listed? Contact Pledge to have your charity added.

Provide details on food, dress code and ticket price

Will there be a cash bar? Are there meal options? Is there a theme? Let guests know what to expect.

Send invitations six to eight weeks in advance

Give attendees plenty of time to plan to come.

Come right out and ask guests to RSVP

Boost your response rate with a direct call to action in the text of your invitation.
