If your donors come to support your fundraising events because they feel obligated, you’re doing it wrong. Switch your events from obligatory to desirable by focusing on the experience at hand for your participants.
When planning your next big event, promote your nonprofit while being a party planner. Don’t be afraid to try out new, hot ideas for your gathering. A silent auction and dinner is simply not going to cut it anymore.
“The event should be the experience of the cause – not the experience of fundraising,” said Katya Anderson of Katya’s Non-Profit Marketing Blog.
