Getting Strategic About Event Planning
Thursday, February 21, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (EST)
Traverse City, MI
You have the cause, the idea, and enthusiasm to run an event to raise money for your nonprofit. Of course, running a successful fundraising event is easier said than done. Fundraising events are a popular form of fundraising. While they can be great money makers for an organization, they can also be time consuming and expensive. The success of events depends on careful planning. During this session, we’ll discuss how to develop a written plan for your event including a budget, tips for ensuring their success, and the when to consider “retiring” an event. Designed for beginning to intermediate event planners, volunteers, staff, and managers.
Feel free to bring your lunch.
