Course Level – Beginner
Do all of your fundraising events reach their fundraising goal? Do you ever feel like you’ve left money on the table and wish you knew how to cause people to give even more at your gala, golf event, wine tasting, walk-a-thon, or other event? You aren’t alone.
The fast pace of working in a fund development office doesn’t always allow for planning an emotionally connecting event. Join Lori for 45 minutes to learn the top 10 ways you can more deeply connect with people and inspire more giving at your events.
To “missionize” your fundraising event takes planning and creativity, and it can actually be fun. Lori will share examples of mission-infused events where tens of thousands to millions of dollars have been raised. The key component is giving audiences an experience that connects to both their head and their heart.
In this nonprofit webinar you will:
- Learn why stories make a difference in fundraising.
- Learn a very simple framework for sharing stories at your nonprofit fundraising events.
- Learn the top 10 ways to effectively share stories of your impact at your nonprofit fundraising events.
