Celebrity fundraising for events

If you are looking to organise a fundraising event on a grand scale by hiring a celebrity, – be it a famous local artist, a well-known Entrepreneur, a sports figure or else – I have gathered for you few tips to help you reach out these celebrities. However, if this is something you deem too difficult to do, be aware that there are agencies who can do the work for you!

First of all, be aware it has a cost, so try to choose carefully which celebrity you want to invite to your event and find innovative ways to avoid unnecessary additional expenditures.

These articles should give some valuable tips on how to approach any kinds of celebrity:

Secondly, you can also decide to use a crowd fundraising website to raise funds through celebrities and spread the words about it on social networks, like this one:

However, you may opt to outsource the celebrity search to an agency like CTI and AAT:
