Big news, everybody: Yaymaker's Paint Nite fundraising events are back!
We had to wind down our charity events during the pandemic, but we've been working on them behind the scenes, and they're better than ever. We couldn't be more excited for their return and to help you raise money for those causes nearest and dearest to you.
Whether fundraising for nonprofits, sports teams, church or school, our team is here to help you plan a fun event that makes raising money easier than ever.
Importance of Fundraising Events and Their Impact on Local Communities
Fundraising events are vital for charities and nonprofits to raise money and awareness for their causes. Plus, they have a significant impact on local communities.
These events bring people together to give back and support programs that help people in need.
Why Paint Nite Fundraisers Are a Great Fundraising Idea
A paint party fundraiser with Yaymaker gives you the best of both worlds: a fun and creative event that helps raise funds for your cause.
You can tap into our expertise and network, increasing the chances of a successful event that raises funds and brings your community closer together.
Raise Awareness and Funds for a Cause.
Not only do Yaymaker's charity events help fundraising efforts, but they also spread awareness for your cause.
Market your fundraising event well, and you'll likely catch people's attention outside your usual circle and raise more money, especially if you go public. All public fundraisers go on PaintNite.com's in-person calendar, opening you up to more ticket sales.
Engage Supporters and Reach New Audiences.
Paint parties aren't your typical form of entertainment for a charity event, so you can capture the attention of supporters and local businesses in a unique way. It's not just another bake sale or car wash.
These fundraising events also create a memorable experience that leaves a lasting impact so attendees remember your cause for years to come. They also get a physical memento of your unique event.

You can come to us without any idea how to plan a fundraiser and walk away with a successful fundraising event for the history books.

What's left for you?
All that's left for you in terms of event planning is…
Securing a venue
The location of your fundraising event is totally up to you. You could have it at home, in your office or at a local hotspot. Just make sure that if you use a local bar or restaurant, you reserve the space and plan any food and drink directly with their team.
There are many ways to spread awareness of a charity event, from social media to physical marketing materials like posters.
As we've mentioned, you can also make your event public. This creates an opportunity for your event to be seen by thousands of people on PaintNite.com.
We have three options to make selling tickets and accepting donations incredibly easy:
- You can handle all ticket sales yourself and collect charitable donations in person.
- Opt for a private link on our site to share with guests so they can purchase tickets themselves.
- Opt for a public link to share with guests, which will also go on PaintNite.com's public calendar.
Yaymaker's ticket prices are $39/pp (USD) + tax. You then get to decide how much you sell tickets for to your attendees. Most people sell tickets for $5-10 over our ticket price, but that choice is up to you.
Your price – our price = your charitable donation.
- A dedicated event planner
- A professional host (one of PaintNite.com's local artists)
- Your event's entertainment
- All your supplies
- Share your goals and general fundraising event ideas.
- Fill in the details - the date, location, guest count, painting…
- We plan your event while you spread the word and sell tickets.
- We host an unforgettable painting party together and accept donations for your cause.
- We send the donations to the event organizer via PayPal.
