Raise Awareness & Funds with Special Events

A successful fundraising event generates enough funds to make the investment of time and effort worthwhile.  It also raises awareness for your cause and your organization.  Creating a profitable fundraiser can be challenging.  Join us to learn how to make your special event stand out.

Understanding your audience, being clear with your objectives and planning are essential elements. By the end of the training, you will be able to determine which types of events are suitable for your needs; create and track an event budget; and create a timeline from the beginning down to the day-of event.

This training is available through live streaming.
