Please, oh please, nonprofits who I love so much, don’t send me another invitation to a stuffy dinner with stuffy speakers and stuffed chicken (or a stuffed tomato for us vegetarians).
Instead, invite me to something fun, that I’ll actually look forward to attending, and that I’ll RSVP for early because I genuinely want to reserve my spot. Show me a good time and I’ll give it up (a nice check, that is)!
If this idea of supporters clamoring to attend your events is appealing, but you aren’t quite sure how to pull it off, you should check out next week’s webinar, Parties with a Purpose: How to Put the Fun Back in Your Fundraising Events on Wednesday, September 17 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern (10:00 a.m. Pacific).
It’s the usual deal: $35 for everyone in your office around one webinar connection or free with your All-Access Pass ($97 for 12 weeks of everything I offer.) If you can’t make it live, your registration also gets you two weeks of access to the recording, so you can watch the video when you do have the time.
This webinar will feature fundraising expert Gail Perry and our resident media maven Claire Meyerhoff. Gail is probably most well-known for showing you how to get your board to fundraise for you (I’m going to talk her into doing that webinar next!), but she also has some fabulous ideas on nonprofit fundraising events.
This webinar is shaping up to be one of our most popular to date based on current registrations, so get in on it now. Space is limited!
P.S. I’ll be spending tomorrow with Gail and Claire and will get some “freebie” tips out of them to share with you on Monday.
And don’t forget about Magic Keys Radio, live on Friday at 1:00 p.m. ET – We’ll be interviewing Gail, so you can get some good free tips then too. Come ask questions!
