Father's Day PTA

Event Tickets and Gifts

With Father’s Day coming up soon, we're sure you've been thinking of creative ways to raise funds for your school and hold a successful campaign. If so, you probably know that hosting a cool event for Dads or selling quirky Father's Day gifts can be an excellent way to generate profits for your PTA.

Fortunately, today it is much easier than ever before to sell PTA event tickets and gifts online. All it takes is setting up a FREE community hub on PlanSocial. This article will explain how you can set up your own Father's Day event in just a few minutes and begin selling merchandise or event tickets for Father's Day today. Let's get started!


Step 1: Create a free Hub for your school

Click here to sign up for your free hub.


Step 2: Add a new event using our ‘Father's Day’ template 

Click the ‘Add Event’ button and enter a title then select ‘Father's Day’ from the dropdown, and select 'Go'.


Select ‘Sell online tickets’ and click the link to connect your payment account.

You'll first be prompted to connect to your existing Stripe account. Don’t worry if you currently don’t have one because an account can be created online in minutes here - simply select ‘No’ and follow the instructions that follow. You will need to provide your PTA's bank details, and a contact person. (If you also provide proof of your PTA's charity status you can benefit from reduced-rate Stripe fees.)


Step 3: Add the tickets and items you’d like to sell

Next up our template has it set for you to sell entry tickets. Here you can also add additional items/services to sell like cool mugs or doughnuts for the amazing dads in your school community. To make the entry visually appealing, pictures can be added to showcase the event ticket and items for sale.


With our friendly user interface, you can edit the price, dates when tickets can be purchased and a maximum available quantity (if any), for each ticket type, or across the whole event.


Next on the Forms tab you can collect information for the ticket sales such as Full Name of the ticket holder, Child’s Name, Class, Allergies, etc. We have pre-built form templates that you can use.


Step 4: Add tasks and activities

This system is the perfect solution to help you manage your Mother's Day event tasks with ease. With PlanSocial, up to 20 core organisers can carry out any task they feel comfortable with. Don’t worry if you have more than 20 volunteers. If you upgrade to the paid Community Hub plan, you can open up volunteering opportunities to all parents.


In this template we have a few basic tasks pre-loaded for you. You can click 'Edit' to customise them to your liking or Click ‘Add Task’ to create new tasks or additional items from scratch.


Step 5: Add the event date to publish it, and share the link

Click ‘Edit’ to edit the date and add in details, then share it with parents in your school so they can purchase tickets safely using their debit or credit card from any device. 


Voila... you're all set up to start selling!


Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to come together and celebrate all of the brilliant dads in your school community and we would be happy to help you make this year’s Father’s Day celebration one to not to miss!
