RSVP Minimum: All fundraising groups* must gather 20 RSVPs on their Public Meal Page at least 3 days before the event in order for it to be confirmed.
When the Deadline is Missed
If the group does not reach 20 RSVPs, the event is automatically cancelled and a notification email is sent to you, the group, and all previously RSVPed supporters. We then automatically apply one event credit to your profile so that you can use it towards a future event, since the other was cancelled.
Waive This Requirement
You have the ability to waive this requirement on a per-event basis before the RSVP Deadline. We do recommend reaching out to the group to confirm that they have been using alternative promotional methods before applying this to an event.
*Exception: Groups that categorize themselves as (non-university) School and Church groups are exempt from this requirement as they have historically proven to bring successful turnouts despite the lack of RSVPs due to alternative promotional methods in these communities.
