Fundraising Friday: Event (Planning) Season is Here
Zoom - information to be emailed
Consultant, Grantseeker, Nonprofit
Join us over coffee hour to learn about the kinds of fundraising events that have been working and what virtual, in person, and hybrid events are on schedule for this fall season. After sharing success stories about recent events, Allison Picott, Development Director of The Lenny Zakim Fund, will lead the discussion about what is working and what hasn’t worked so well in the past year of event fundraising. We look forward to hearing from your development team about the galas, scavenger hunts, no-show balls and other creative events that are being planned for the biggest fundraising months of the year.
Fundraising Fridays are monthly hour-long “coffee talks” facilitated by thought leaders from the nonprofit and philanthropic communities. These discussion groups, held at 9:00 am the first Friday of each month, are free and open to any and all nonprofit professionals and volunteers interested in fundraising and development issues (EDs, DDs, development staff, volunteer leaders, etc.). Participants will come away with a greater understanding of the topic at hand and connections to nonprofit peers who share similar interests and concerns.
Zoom information will be sent via email in advance of the session.
