The Art & Science of Successful Fundraising Events - A Hands-On Workshop
Do you love your nonprofit's/PTA's/synagogue's good work, but dread working on its annual Harvest Hoedown fundraiser? Do you find that each year, you buy the 12 Hoedown tickets that you are supposed to sell? When you're running all over town, picking up bales of hay, pitchforks, and gingham aprons do you wish for an easier way to raise money?
If so, this workshop is for you (and your board).
Here's what we'll cover:
- How to design a fundraising event that attracts more
donors and more donations by capitalizing on your
organization's (often unidentified) assets
- How to identify your organization's strengths -
especially your hidden strengths
- How to produce your event with more moxie than money
- How to produce an event that board and other volunteers
will want to work on
During the workshop, attendees will develop a fundraising event plan for their respective organizations (if applicable), and receive feedback from the instructor and other workshop participants (optional).
