GroupRaise RSVP Policy: An event must receive 20 RSVPs 3 days before the scheduled event date or the event will be automatically cancelled--all parties will receive an automated cancellation email when this occurs.
We're committed to helping you hit your goal, which is where your Meal Management Page comes in. Locate the Meal Management Page for any event you host by signing in and clicking on the event under "Meal Schedule" on your dashboard. Below we highlight three tools you can use to promote your event and increase RSVPs:

1. Event Promotion
Marketing is key to getting your +20 RSVPs. Some useful promotion tips:
- Post your Meal Page link on social media (#1 in image above)
- Tag the restaurant and reach their followers too! Try throwing in some popular hashtags or tag the charity you are giving to.
- Use your circles--invite other student organizations, churches, schools, or even your friends and family.

2. Tracking RSVPs
The "Who's Eating" section of your Meal Management Page is a great way to keep track of who has already RSVPed. You can even use the emails provided to send out reminders, give important updates, and get everyone excited about the upcoming meal!
3. Restaurant Coordination
Your Meal Management Page comes with an Event Messenger feature that allows you to get in touch with the restaurant from the moment you submit a request. Doing this in advance is a great way to establish rapport prior to your event. Additionally, if for any reason you are having issues reaching the minimum, the restaurant does have the ability to waive the RSVP Minimum Requirement if they feel confident that your group will have a good turnout despite the low RSVP volume.
