Most non-profits hold at least one fundraising event each year – does yours? Do you feel like your events are far too much work, with far too little revenue? So many organizations are stuck holding events that take up valuable time and resources yet never reach their true potential.
If you are currently holding non-profit events and want to double or triple the amount you are raising… or you want to launch a new event at your organization and supercharge the fundraising without all the hassle, then I invite you to join us for our newly updated class:

Each guide contains 8-10 pages and presents everything you need to know to massively grow your event fundraising through that week’s selected strategies and tactics.
A podcast seminar that you can listen to on your computer, smartphone, iPod or other devices. These recordings will contain a 10-20 minute seminar presenting additional tips, tricks and tactics on the topic for the week.
