How to Plan, Manage & Run a Special Event Fundraiser

Fundraising events can be extremely valuable sources of revenue and awareness for nonprofit organizations. 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 some studies. How do you capitalize on the 30% while getting the other 70% to participate? A major key is to get the basics down and focus on the bottom line. This webinar will show you how.

You'll learn to:

  • Develop strategic goals for your event that ensure success
  • Raise more by having clear expectations for honorees and event chairs
  • Enlist a committee that is laser-focused on asking
  • Train your staff and volunteers to ask
  • Better integrate your event into your annual fundraising plan
  • Explore event ideas that generate more money
  • Use free or almost-free software designed to make your events easier to manage.
  • and more...
