Fundraising Event Management

Fundraising events can be great fun, but they bring with them hard work and risk. How do you ensure your gala dinner, comedy night, fundraiser or conference goes off successfully?

Two Day Course

Book Included: The Complete Special Events Handbook

Do you feel your organisation is missing out on funding and awareness raising opportunities by not holding events?

If you do hold events, do you feel it takes a lot of your time for very little return?

Do you believe events fundraising is an avenue your organisation should explore?

Event fundraising is an excellent way to raise awareness of your cause and organisation as well as attract funders, reach a new audience and build loyal supporters and of course raise funds.

It is important however to initially see whether events are for you, and if so, how to manage events efficiently to ensure you use your time and manage your costs effectively.
