Join us for a FREE AFP webinar at John F. Kennedy University
Special events have long been synonymous with fundraising and as a result, every fundraiser has a story of cold food, missing golf balls, no-show volunteers, and the $200 pot of hotel coffee. We also know that fundraising events, on average, have one of the lower net profit factors and yet, they are often the go-to solution in a financial pinch. It is essential that every fundraiser understand the value special events can play within their organization, as well as the importance of setting appropriate financial, time management and resource expectations. In this session we will discuss this love-hate relationship, as well as review the cornerstone elements of successful events, including how to define success, knowing when to move on and setting pragmatic boundaries for the future.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Understand purpose and financial dependence
- Create a healthy special events culture
- Understand resource allocation
- Have a sense of realistic goals and outcomes
This Web/Audioconference series is presented locally by the East Bay Community Foundation, the Association of Fundraising Professionals–Golden Gate Chapter, and the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at John F. Kennedy University.
All sessions qualify for CFRE continuing education credits.
