What to Rent for a Charity Fundraiser Event

Renting equipment is a great way to reduce the stress of planning and achieve your fundraising goals!

Fundraisers are an important part of making your charity organization work. To “woo” potential donors into supporting your cause, your charity fundraiser event needs to be entertaining, memorable, and exciting enough to captivate their emotions and inspire them to give.


Working with a party rental company is one of the best ways to ensure your charity event is a complete success. The right company can help you choose the perfect catering equipment, tables, chairs, and accessories to turn your charity fundraising events into the party of the year. How can using event rental equipment help you find the funding your organization needs?


Turn Up the Volume with Entertainment Options

Give your donors the opportunity to have fun! Happy people are more likely to open their wallets. Jazz up your charity fundraiser event with entertainment options that dazzle the eye, tickle the ear and encourage generosity.


  • Use a PA system to broadcast messages and music throughout your venue. Attach your system to a podium equipped with a microphone to make your auction-style charity event easier and more professional.
  • A projector and projector screen is the perfect way to show your donors what their dollars can do. Create a slideshow that features pictures of your organization’s past good deeds. Include slides that talk about future plans and a few messages that thank those who have already contributed to your cause.
  • Rent a dance floor to give your donors a place to move. A portable stage makes an ideal place for live performances or to set up your DJ’s equipment. Add special lighting to make your charity fundraising events feel like a disco party.

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry to Encourage More Donations

Food and beverage options are a huge part of your charity fundraiser event. Whether you want to hold a high-class cocktail affair or a down-home family feed event, your rental equipment specialist can guide you to the right options to keep your potential donors smiling throughout the evening.


  • Rent a large coffee maker to ensure your guests stay perky. An insulated hot box lets you expand your warm beverage options to teas and hot cocoa.
  • More formal events that require table service benefit from the addition of rental trays and tray dollies to help your servers deliver freshly prepared food in a fast and professional manner.
  • Add some oomph to your adult event with portable bars. Choose more decorative options, like LED-covered equipment, to make your bar stand out and add a touch of fun to your festivities.
    The food for your casual event doesn’t have to be drab. Your equipment supplier can help you find cooking equipment, dinnerware, tables, chairs, and linens to complete your dining setup.


Include cardboard trash cans throughout the venue to make cleanup easier.


Encourage Comfort Throughout Your Charity Fundraiser Event

With all the fun and excitement you have planned, your donors are sure to get tired before the event ends. Make sure they can find the comfort they need with rental equipment.


  • Tent rentals will expand your event to the outdoors without leaving your party-goers exposed to the elements. Special accessories like lighting, fans, extension cords, and sidewalls let you transform your tent into a customized space for presentations, dining, or just a place to relax before going back to the party.
  • Give your guests a clean place to relieve themselves with restroom trailers. Skip the unsanitary portable toilets and opt for more upscale options with flushable toilets, hand sinks, and mirrors.
  • Don’t let unfriendly weather ruin your event. Strategically place heating and cooling equipment like heaters and fans around your venue to keep everyone comfortable in spite of the thermometer readings.


Add lighting to the outside of your tents and restrooms to make them easier for your attendees to find.
