Event Details

Come on an Adventure! A fundraising adventure!

Mazarine Treyz and Steve Havelka present a video game, called Adventures in Fundraising. This game will help your nonprofit teach people how to fundraise. Whether it's a board member, new staff member, or volunteer, this video game can mean the world to a one person development office.

It can be the crucial difference between having 10 informed people, ready to take action and help you, and 9pm on a lonely Tuesday night staring at 50 boxes of envelopes to stuff and sort to get your mailing done.

This video game will be ready to demo by the end of September, 2010, and will teach your board, staff, and volunteers real world, tried and true hands on fundraising techniques such as: how to do an appeal mailing, how to research and write grants, how to put on an event, and even how to do a major gift ask.

This presentation will show you how the Adventures in Fundraising game will look and feel, and help you understand how to engage your Gen X and Gen Y volunteers and staff who have grown up with video games.
