Hey Paddle Perfecto! Check out these best paddle practices!
See the "Best Practices" article at the beginning of each master badge for essential tips and tricks curated by event experts at Event.Gives.
The paddle raise is one of the most important parts of your fundraiser. In the first lesson in this module, you will learn our Paddle Perfecto best practices we have learned over the years.
- Avoid pre-assigning paddle numbers and/or leaving paddle numbers at guest seats/tables. When you are checking in your attendees, you can have a stack of paddles by your side and assign them/hand them out at the door. This ensures each attendee has the correct paddle number when it comes time for your live auction and/or paddle raise.
- Yes, you can pre-print off your paddle numbers with our platform. Always print more paddles than you think you'll need. They are even customized to your event theme color!
- Always have at least two volunteer scribes at your event. Cross-comparison allows for more accurate donation data. Make sure that the auctioneer communicates the paddle raise plan to the scribes so that they are adequately prepared and can focus on precise scribing.
- Use our "Quick Donations"/"Lock Amount" features to quickly enter paddle raise donations.
