Table Host Toolkit

As a Table Host, you are responsible for recruiting six guests for your table, whom you believe would appreciate learning more about PENCIL’s work in Metro schools and would consider a personal contribution. All the materials you’ll need to be successful are available here (click on the titles):


Table hosts are PENCIL champions who support the event by:

  • Having a genuine appreciation for PENCIL and its mission. We ask you to confidently explain our goals and lend your influence to bring the right people together for this event.
  • Recruiting six guests for your table, who are strong prospects to connect with and invest in us. We suggest a minimum donation of $50 from each guest.
  • Communicate regularly with your guests and share PENCIL’s mission.
  • Sharing a meaningful thank you to your guests.
