I do a lot of volunteer work for a small non-profit prison literacy program.
I am considering having a fundraising dinner or dessert party for them, at my apartment, due to our group's funds being very low, and because a local group-household who used to hold a weekly fundraising brunch for us has recently had to give that up. So, now that small, though regular, source of funds is gone as well.
I'm nervous about how to go about it, and feeling not-too-sure of myself about asking for money at an event I'm hosting.
Has anyone ever done something like this? How to word invitations? How to go about it? What to serve?
