Join us for this FREE webinar! Auction and event fundraisers work because they raise money & raise awareness for your cause. Raise awareness by telling and sharing your story throughout the life cycle of the event fundraiser. Make it easy with an on-brand microsite, including images and videos for impact. Raise money with sponsorships, tickets, in room bidding, online bidding, donations and paddle raises. Fill the seats and fulfill the fundraising goal. Power up the revenue of event fundraisers and auctions. If you are considering adding an event fundraiser to your calendar or have been doing them for years, we have some tips and tricks for you. Real advice, with real examples that you can implement immediately. Bring the whole team and join us for some fun where bids soar and fundraising goals are crushed. We show you how to do so in a way that is easy!

Every nonprofit has a story to tell about the work it’s doing. In this session, we’ll get past “storytelling” as an organizational goal and start talking about it as a practical day-to-day tool. “Storytelling” can seem like a board-level buzzword, but we’ll dig into what truly makes stories the most effective form of communication – and how any nonprofit organization can apply those story principles to communicate more powerfully with their donors and members. Make sure you have a notepad so you can start planning your organization’s storytelling strategy during this workshop.

Ginny Waller | Waller Consulting

Human Resources is grounded in the practice of taking care of your #1 resource: your people. However, for nonprofits with small budgets and less resources, maintaining good HR practices can be tricky. Whether it’s the Executive Director or the Office Manager or some combination of the two, the organization should prioritize a few key HR practices: onboarding, tracking leave, maintaining records, and fostering a healthy organizational culture. In this session, former nonprofit executive director turned nonprofit consultant, Ginny Waller, will offer solutions to the small HR shop challenges.

NEW & coming up next month!
