Webinar: Beyond the RSVP: Crowdfunding for Special Events

Mar 01, 2017 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Traditional events still play a big role in the fundraising initiatives for many nonprofits, yet by their very nature, often limit who can attend or who you choose to market them to. This ultimately means you leave money on the table or miss an opportunity to raise awareness around your mission. Crowdfunding gives you the ability to “open up the virtual doors” on your events to change the narrative on how you market them, so you can ultimately reach more people and raise more money. You won’t want to miss this workshop to discover how to take a socially engaging approach to your next benefit.

Join Dana to learn:

  • How crowdfunding can play a role in special events
  • How crowdfunding can replace and/or complement an invitation
  • Which events a crowdfunding approach could work well for
  • Strategies to reinvigorate your event to create a stickier brand experience
  • Tactics to integrate crowdfunding before, during and after the event
