Summer can be a tough time for nonprofits. People are on summer break and they’re not necessarily thinking about their favorite charitable causes. If you partner with local businesses, you might have a harder time scheduling nonprofit events with them if their office tends to slow down during the summer.
Make Your Nonprofit Events Kid-Friendly
Most people work less during the summer because their kids are home from school, so if you’re hosting a nonprofit event over the summer, try to make it as kid-friendly as possible so people can bring their kids
Host a “Pub Crawl”
If you want to keep your nonprofit event kid friendly, you probably won’t want to do a traditional pub crawl, but depending on the types of businesses in your area, you could do a cookie crawl, an ice cream crawl, or a lemonade crawl. You can partner with local businesses in your area to provide treats to your attendees, either for free or at a discount. That way you’ll get people to your nonprofit event and the local businesses will get people in their stores/restaurants, which makes it a win/win for everyone!
