Your destination for insight into the world of event fundraising and charity auctions.
Every Nonprofit Marketer/Fundraiser has ran into the same problem while doing their job; a lack of resources and tools to use! I was the Marketing Manager for a Nonprofit for 7+ years and would experience this each day at work. How do I crop and edit an image without Photoshop? We can’t hire a full time designer, but we want pretty invitation flyers for our upcoming event!
Once your fundraiser is over, it can be tempting to bask in the excitement and, frankly, relief that your major event went well. However, even if you met your donations goals for the event, the time right after the event is critical. This time is a chance for you and your staff to reach out to donors and make it clear just how much you appreciate them. 🙌
Looking for a straightforward, effective way to raise money for charity? How about a raffle? If raffles are allowed in your state*, hosting a raffle is a reliable, low-cost fundraising strategy to engage supporters - and they take a whole lot less planning than a full-fledged event.
