The event manager likely has lots of tasks and responsibilities to handle before the event. Here is a short list of what can be done from the Wizathon end to maximize participant enthusiasm and fundraising:

  • Turn on Auto Notifications
  • Contact your past participants and teams asking them to join your event
  • Setup badges and a few motivational prizes set at weekly/bi-weekly intervals
  • Send a weekly/bi-weekly email to your team captains and participants infused with excitement, fundraising highlights, general information, and creative fundraising ideas
  • Advertise your event on Social Media, in newspapers, in local schools and community centers
  • Create a photo or video challenge which participants can enter, and have the winner display on the participants' profile pages
