Nonprofit Fundraising events are a great way of raising money for your organization. However, there is much more that you can get out of such an event.
These kinds of events have an unparalleled reach to audiences; they have the potential of strengthening relationships with partners or customers, they can help you build a strong network and serve as a great tool to help you raise awareness about a specific cause.
There are many ways to fructify the potential of a fundraising event, and in this article, we will go through some of the few ways you can deliver and earn more through your event.
1. Promotion Matters
Even from the early promotional stages, be sure to spread the news about your fundraiser to a broad donor base. You can reach out to them through printed ads, flyers, banners, and even through personal means such as e-mail or direct messaging on social media.
Make sure to describe your organization in clear terms, be sure to provide background, and even state the organization’s long-term mission.
This way, you are 100% transparent with the audience, so people can get a clear picture of what they can expect from your fundraiser.
2. Give People More Ways to Contribute
There will probably be many people who would want to engage with the fundraiser but would not contribute monetarily.
There are many ways people can help, either by spreading the word, being present for the occasion, or volunteering for event activities.
Another thing to keep in mind is that some people might not be able to donate at present, but that does not mean that they will not be able to do so in the future.
3. Connect with the Attendees
The people that are attending your nonprofit fundraising event are the ones that are most in tune with your organization’s goals, which is why it is vital to connect and form a special relationship with them.
Since communication needs to be effective, you should rely on the services of a professional speaker to better connect with the attendees.
We recommend working with motivational speaker David S. Rose. He is an author, speaker, and venture capitalist who knows the ins and outs of financing and investing.
As a speaker, he will be the right candidate to present your fundraiser’s plan and convince the audience to contribute.
If you are organizing a virtual fundraiser, you will know that David is also a certified virtual presenter. He has professional studio-grade equipment at his disposal and can present his talks remotely through Zoom or WebEx.
4. Maintain Contact After the Event
At the end of the nonprofit fundraising event, the first thing you want to do is to thank your donors. Then, once the event is wrapped up, you want to open up a discussion channel with the participants and keep in touch with them long after the event.
After a few days, it is best to reach out to the donors again, send them a rundown of the event and share statistics with them in the form of an infographic. Again, this serves as a way to show that their contribution mattered and made a notable difference.
