Host a House Party Fundraiser

What is an MVP House Party?

House Parties create a shared sense of community and hopefulness. These events provide a way to gather your friends and family in person or on Zoom to learn about MVP and, most importantly, join in financial support.

Parties have a welcoming environment where people make connections and get questions answered. Expect to hear about the past and present of MVP, the funding model, stories from the field, and hosts sharing their stories of why they support MVP.

House Parties run the gamut of size anywhere from 12-500+ attendees. It’s your party, so you and your co-hosts decide how big you want to go!

A Typical House Party

Typically, House Party programs run for an hour with an introduction lead by hosts followed by a presentation about MVP. There is time allotted for Q&A and then host(s) share a pitch to encourage donations. In-person events offer time at the beginning and end of the event for mingling and discussion.

To get a sense of how to organize your time, we recommend reviewing this event flow template and this checklist before you get started.
