Special events have long been synonymous with fundraising and as
a result, every fundraiser has a story of cold food, missing golf balls,
no-show volunteers, and the $200 pot of hotel coffee. We also know that fundraising events, on
average, have one of the lower net profit factors and yet, they are often the
go-to solution in a financial pinch. It
is essential that every fundraiser understand the value special events can play
within their organization, as well as the importance of setting appropriate financial,
time management and resource expectations.
In this session we will discuss this love-hate relationship, as well as
review the cornerstone elements of successful events, including how to define
success, knowing when to move on and setting pragmatic boundaries for the
future. This webinar will include the practical realities we all
currently face during these unprecedented times, including how to recalibrate
expectations around holding events, ideas around transitioning events online
and how to set your organization up for success moving forward.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
