Design Inspirational Large-Scale Fundraising Events - Workshop
Use events to inspire, nurture and engage newly acquired champions
9:00 AM - 11:45 AM CDT
Organizations lose around half their donor base each year. For your nonprofit to survive, you must be regularly inviting new people the cause. Hosting an inspiring large-scale event can help your organization reach a wider audience where you can cultivate engagement with new people. Over the past two decades, Mission Increase’s model for large-scale events has helped thousands of leaders to invite new people, in addition to raise more money, grow existing champions, and build community through inspiring fundraising dinners.
This workshop will focus on the important planning principles for large-scale events. When you gather together with peers in ministry to practice:
- Brainstorming your guest list
- Designing a great program
- Construct a follow-up plan
This updated workshop will surely benefit your entire team. Be sure to invite key volunteers, development staff and board members to participate. Register today!
