People Make it Possible: How to Raise More Funds at your next Fundraising Event

February 1, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$55 – $95

Whether you’re planning a first-time fundraiser or your organization’s 100th-anniversary gala is just months away, you’re going to need people! And the more money you hope to raise at your event, the more people you’ll need. Join us for a three-hour power session as we dive into four areas where People Make It Possible – to expand your reach, raise more money, improve the event experience of every guest, and have a little more fun (and a lot less stress) in the planning process.


  • Why a host committee is vital to your success – and tips for building one.
  • How clearly defining your target audience will drive more revenue – plus tips for getting high-value guests to attend your event.
  • How to turn event volunteers into ambassadors of the guest experience – and tips for making them say “WOW” when it’s over.
  • Why hiring event professionals will ‘level up’ your event planning game – and how to find vendors you can trust.
