The biggest component of any fundraiser are the guests. Nailing down the guest list, inviting your donors, and getting people to show up are the biggest challenges associated with almost any event, especially fundraisers.

Save the dates, mailed invitations, Facebook event invites, and post event thank-yous all require perfect timing and coordination for the maximum impact.
