The name says it all! (hopefully!) Although this is more or less a presentation, by no means is this a lecture. The more interaction the better. As the organizer of this group, I wanted to create an atmosphere where people who have the heart to help raise money for the cause(s) they care about most could gather together with organizations in need of financial support in a social environment and share fundraising ideas and / or stories with one another.
Being the president of a local branch of a national non profit organization, I'm looking forward to meeting others like myself and sharing what fundraising tools our branch uses. To be completely honest, one of the methods we are about to implement is so exciting I can't wait to share it with everyone! The cost to our organization to use this method is nothing, we can partner with other organizations (in fact, the more organizations we partner with, the more each organization will earn), and even the volunteers that actively participate in the campaign will earn money too!
I know it may be a little hard to believe, but there are socially responsible corporations out there that have programs designed to give a portion of their profits back to non profit organizations. You'll be surprised and excited about many of the programs and methods that exists! I can't wait to share some of them with you all.
Please bring paper and pen to take notes. Also, feel free to invite anyone you feel that could benefit from learning about new ways to fund raise. The more the merrier!
