When planned well, fundraising events can be the catalyst for attracting new support and leadership to your organization. Meticulous attention to detail, budgeting, marketing, and volunteer recruitment are keys in ensuring that your event is worth the time, energy, and funds that are invested in it. This interactive session will cover the main things to consider before launching a new fundraising event or evaluating an existing one. Panelists will meet in small groups to discuss specific details for their event, share lessons learned, and answer questions from participants.
