Tools and Tips for Successful Fundraising Events
This training will focus on the choreography and best practices needed to solicit at an event. You'll learn many different ways to raise money through events: tickets, sponsorships, on-site ask, live auction, silent auction, and raffles. To stay on track as you plan and build on past successes, you'll receive training on how to use an event timeline, event strategy form, and write an event summary. Participants will receive a 8-page handout filled with resources to help them run their own successful fundraising event.

Robbie Samuels was Senior Manager of Events and Donor Engagement at GLAD for nearly 10 years. He coordinated 20-25 fundraisers and donor cultivation events a year. These events raised nearly one million dollars annually (25% of GLAD's budget).

He left GLAD in 2014 to focus on his business as a speaker and consultant. He passionately believes everyone should stop wasting time networking and shares how through his signature session, “Art of the Schmooze.” Listen to his On the Schmooze podcast for quick networking tips and engrossing interviews about leadership -
