Moving Beyond the Rubber Chicken Dinner!

Thursday, July 9, 10 am - Noon

Have you been tasked with planning an event? Have you been doing an event for years that is losing its momentum?

Most nonprofits suffer from a perplexing condition that causes them reflexively to start planning events whenever a need arises. In this session, we will discuss strategies for developing a strong, results-driven event strategy for your organization. Not every fundraiser needs to be a "rubber chicken dinner" accompanied by silent and live auctions -- in fact, you might not even want to raise money at every event as you aim to cultivate a loyal community of support for your organization.

Learn about ways to increase your revenue through meaningful event and engagement planning!

In this first session of a two-part series, we will focus on top level event planning, including goal setting and exploring a variety of different types of events. We will not only take into consideration analyzing the return on investment into the event itself, but also think about the opportunity-cost related to how you spend your time.

This workshop series will be moderated by Chris Carter, Director of Development at the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, who has recently joined the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance Executive Team. Welcome, Chris!

The Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance provides nonprofit organizations with opportunities to meet, collaborate and share resources, thereby strengthening each other as they work to achieve their missions.

The organization's philosophy is simply put: together, we're better. When local nonprofits succeed and thrive, the entire community is strengthened. The Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance supports nonprofit organizations located within the Tri-Valley and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
