The GroupRaise RSVP Policy is that the group must receive at least 20 RSVPs 3 days before the day of the scheduled event. In the case there are not 20 RSVPs, the event will be automatically cancelled and all parties will receive an automated cancellation email.
If you are a Group, in order to prevent this, you can keep track of the number of RSVPs at your Event link, you can find this link by following the steps below.
- Logging into your User Profile
- Clicking on the Upcoming Event
- Send or post the link via email or social media
Marketing is key to getting your +20 RSVPs. Also consider inviting anyone who would like to contribute to your fundraiser; this could include inviting other student organizations, churches, schools, or even your friends and family.
Another tactic is to utilize social media and the restaurant where you will be having the event. Create a post that includes your event link and tag the restaurant so that you can reach their followers too. Try to throw in some popular hashtags or even tag the charity you are giving to.
