As the spring event season is coming to an end and the fall season is just around the corner, this workshop focuses on turning guests from your event into loyal donors who are interested in supporting your organization in more transformative ways. Participants learn strategic steps to take before, during and after the event that evaluate donor interests and awareness levels while moving them toward increased involvement and investment in your mission.

This course is designed for all experience levels from those who are new to special events to seasoned professionals who want to expand or strengthen existing event strategies.

You will learn:

  1. How to turn your event into a key part of your strategy to cultivate potential new donors.
  2. How to use the cycle of involvement and why it’s critical to your success.
  3. The role relationships, donor analysis and prospect research play in event planning.
  4. Ways to strategically engage staff, board members and volunteers in cultivation and stewardship strategies.
  5. How to create metrics and measure outcomes resulting from strategic efforts beyond your event.
