If your event includes asking individuals to donate directly to St. Joseph s Foundation, we have online donation platforms for donors to use.

9 Budget Template When creating a budget make sure to account for all income sources and expenses. A good rule of thumb is to create more than one ESTIMATED budget, based on maximum revenue, minimum revenue and mid range revenue. This will let you know the amount you anticipate to generate from the event. Income Ticket Sales / Admission $ Sponsors $ Donations $ Other $ Other $ Total Gross Income $ Expenses Venue / Location $ Supplies $ Food and Beverages $ Licenses & Permits $ Decorations $ Printing / Advertising $ Giveaways / Promotional Products $ Misc. $ Total Expenses $ Subtract Total Expenses from Total Gross Income: Net Profit from Event $

Hold regular meetings with those with designated responsibilities for updates and communication.

11 Day Of and During Event Ensure all volunteers know their jobs and task. Ensure that someone is designated as the person to deal with any questions or problems if they arise.
