Does your special event schedule wear you out? Are you exhausted from the never ending logistics, the push for ticket sales, the scrambling for sponsorship dollars and the hassles of managing volunteers that may or may not show up the day of your event? 

And what about the revenue? Do you worry that you’re not going to meet your fundraising goals? If you don't have the "right" committee to sell tickets or you don't land the highest-level presenting sponsorship, it's possible you won't even raise enough money to cover your costs! The ups and downs of raising funds through special events can be very stressful and could be taking its toll on your sanity.

If any of this sounds like you, then this free webinar is perfect for you! Together, we'll explore why relying on special events is not the best use of your fundraising resources. You'll learn ways you can replace your fundraising event revenue - and even surpass it - with less effort, less stress and less hassle. 

During this live webinar, you'll learn:

  • Why spending less time planning and running special events makes sense 
  • How to determine the most efficient money raising tactics for your organization
  • Why adding another event in 2015 is not the answer to your budget gap!
  • How to meet (or exceed!) your fundraising goals year after year
  • What exactly to do to raise more money with less hassle
  • And much more

There will be time for Q&A at the end, so come prepared with your questions about fundraising and events.
