Overview

In this class, we will discuss the important aspects of executing successful fundraising events.

Description

Fundraising events can be extremely valuable sources of revenue and awareness for any nonprofit organization. However, there is a lot more to successfully pulling one off than mobilizing a few volunteers and getting participants. All fundraisers agree that, by and large, the goal of a fundraising event is to raise money. The question is, how do you raise money at events, especially when only about 30 percent of fundraising event participants raise any money, according to one study. A major key is to get the basics down and focus on the bottom line. The problem is, most nonprofit organizations don’t do this.


Learning Objectives:

  • Event budgeting tips and suggestions.
  • Event ideas that generate more $$.
  • Class Discussion on best event practices.
  • Free or almost free software designed to make your events easier to manage.

This workshop is included in our Nonprofit Management Certification series and fulfills three hours in the Fundraising competency area.

Cost:  $60.00
