SPECIAL EVENTS FUNDRAISING DONE RIGHT
Featuring: Stephanie Thomas, President, Stetwin Consulting
Love ’em or hate ’em, fundraising events are a fact of life for most nonprofits and especially so with Leagues. Most fundraising events are labor-intensive, transactional in nature, and don?t bring a great ROI, but when done right, they generate much-needed return and improved engagement with your supporters. Stephanie Thomas spent most of her career helping nonprofits put on successful fundraising events, and she will walk you through, step by step, how to plan and carry out a memorable and successful fundraising event with minimal stress.
In this webinar, you will come away with a good understanding of how to:
Think through and set goals for a fundraising event ? Are you trying to raise dollars, attract and engage new friends, raise awareness, or to recognize current friends and donors with a party? Are you trying to pack too much into one event?
Select the most appropriate event type and venue
Target your audience
Connect the event with your mission
Write the plan for your special event, including the event timeline and board/staff roles
Create a realistic budget that will help control costs
Don?t miss this opportunity to hone this very portable skill you’ll be able to put to work both inside and beyond the League!
