We run a fundraising dinner once a year, approx 400 people, mainly couples. what would be the best way to a: set up an event that we can enter couples as contacts (we have to write to them post dinner) B: is it event or campaign C: report that shows total raised, amount outstanding and amount paid D: report as C but showing names

Thank you and sorry if its simple as new to this


It might involve both an event and a campaign. You can set up a campaign with a financial goal, etc. and then create an event for the dinner itself that is tied to that campaign.

If you're using Backdrop or Drupal you can use Webform CiviCRM to set up a registration form that allows entry of both contacts, flexible webform-style payment options, and can also connect them via a relationship. With a core registration form you could allow the user to register multiple people, which could work depending on your pricing structure.

For reports, you can use core reports or custom searches to filter on that event or campaign specifically.
