That’s why it’s important to create an event with your donors in mind.

Make the most of your resources and create an event your supporters will be talking about all year!

Use this guide to:

  • Clarify your vision.
  • Create an event that fits your goals.
  • Recruit corporate sponsors.
  • Secure RSVPs and ensure guests show up.
  • Raise more money before, during, and after your event.

PLUS! A Post-Event To-Do List that will keep your guests engaged long after the festivities have ended.
