Third Party Events

Third-Party Events are those created, managed, and run by various businesses, individuals, groups, and service clubs for the benefit of Carpenter Hospice. Hosting a third-party event is a wonderful way to show your support for Carpenter Hospice in our community. These events provide significant financial assistance to the programs and services we offer at no cost to our community. Third-party events help raise the over $1.8M needed on top of the Government funding we receive.  

Things to Think About

  • What do you hope to accomplish with this event?
    For example, do you want to raise money, increase awareness of Carpenter Hospice, or boost employee morale?

  • How much time will you need to organize this event?

Consider the time commitment your event will consume. If it will take a month to plan, organize and execute, you cannot expect to hold the event in one week. Carpenter Hospice requires prior notice in order to help you have a great event!

  • What are your resources?

Before committing to an event, you need to think about the resources you have available. Is there someone on your committee/group that has helped organize this type of event before? Does a committee member know a local business owner that might donate prizes?

  • What is your budget?

Plan a budget and stick to it. Depending on the type of special event you are running, there may be costs involved and staying on budget will help ensure your group donates as much as the proceeds as possible to your community.

  • Do you have a back-up plan?

Depending on type of event you may want to have a contingency plan in case of weather or other factors outside of your control.

The most important way to ensure that your event is successful is to plan carefully. Start with brainstorming event ideas, develop a work plan and set deadlines for tasks to be accomplished. Also ensure that your budget is realistic and keep detailed records of your expenses. Make sure everyone knows what they are responsible and accountable for.
