Best Practices for Special Events
We all want our fundraising events to be loved by our supporters, to make money, and not to drain our staff or volunteers. Experience shows that it is not easy to accomplish all three of these goals in any one event, but it is not impossible! From golf tournaments to galas, each event has the potential to meet the expectations of your board, staff, and supporters. Come learn the practices that lead to successful special events and leave prepared to take your next event from good to great!
