Recently I have received more requests for detail about how My Giving Table works, so I thought the best way would be to do a simple blog outlining the nitty gritty for you.
My Giving Table Table is a simple philanthropic event booking platform for giving events, events with purpose.
The most important ingredient is the host who wishes to host an event or party with a deeper giving purpose. The hardest decision is simply to decide to give it a go. Once a host has decided to host a My Giving Table party it is an easy process.
Step 1 -Hosts simply register a date and time for their dinner party, cocktail party, lunch or social event. Hosts nominate a ticket price (which is paid by those attending their event) and the recipient charity (the charity who will receive the funds raised from their event). They also can pick a theme and decide on what they will cook.
Step 2- My Giving Table set up a unique landing page for the event. The page has all the general information about the event. It is basically an easy invite link to share with invited friends and outlines the time and the charity and how awesome the host is for hosting the event. Personal details such as the address are not shared on the page, those personal details are sent only to those guests who have rsvp'd and paid to attend. Guests receive this information as an email with any personal information from the host, such as what to bring and the theme, after they rsvp.
Step 3- Hosts share that link with friends and let them know about their event. The link can be shared as a text message, an email or on messenger to friends. There can also be an event specific QR code in case hosts wish to share in print.
Step 4- Guests click on the link to rsvp and pay to attend. They then receive a confirmation receipt email, followed by a full welcome email with all the details.
Step 5- Guests then show up at the hosts fabulous event with purpose and have a great time together knowing their event is giving not just to themselves but also to others in need.
With My Giving Table all events are tracked and registered in accordance with the Fundraising Act, the tax department and the Office of Fair Trade. The charities have full oversight of the funds being raised. My Giving Table also makes it easy in the time of COVID to know who is attending for contact tracing if required. It is also easy to move the date if we have a snap COVID lockdown.
The wonderful hosts donate their time and the meal to the event as their "giving table".
My Giving Table is a powerful and fun way to raise valuable funds for favourite charities.
Another benefit of being a host is to have a blog written about your giving event. We love to share our hosts fabulous event stories and recognise their kindness.
