Fundraising & data peeps! This is where our worlds collide.
Event planning isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
Events are the double-edged sword of the nonprofit world.
On the one hand, they bring people into the fold of your org’s work. I’ve seen a student move a room of 500 people to give. I myself have bawled listening to an ED talk about kids using karate to cope with cancer.
So yeah. There’s no denying that events are a powerful engagement mechanism. But that doesn’t make them easy.
It’s finally spring. For many of us, things in the sector are beginning to slow down. As warm weather settles in and we start leaving the office earlier, it feels like we can FINALLY relax.
But this is only true for some of us. For others…it’s gala season.
