In this class you will learn how to effectively plan a fundraising gala. From pre- to post-event, explore the fundraising gala and ways in which to maximize your resources, build visibility, strengthen your story, keep organized and lay the foundation for long-term growth. While some studies have shown that fundraising events are not the biggest money-maker for non-profits – at least initially, many Directors of Development will tell you there is more to an event fundraiser than just making money. Fundraising events are one fundraising tool that, when utilized at its maximum impact, will allow for a wide range of opportunities for outreach, cultivation and communications both internally and externally.
