One moment in time.

No, that’s not the theme of your next special event. That is the essence of every special event – from fundraisers to “friend-raisers.” That “moment” represents the precise point at which you will successfully hit or exceed your fundraising goal or make that indelible first impression on prospective patrons, donors or volunteers.

While there are many elements you need to address before, during and after a big event, that key “moment” is critical in meeting or exceeding your predetermined goal.

What will be making the fundraising pitch or call for new stakeholders? Will you be producing a heartstrings video or feature live testimonials to bring the ask to life? At what point of the event should you make the pitch?

Of course, there are many other details for executing a successful special event. Here is a comprehensive outline for making sure you cover everything:

  1. Planning/Budgeting
  2. Theming
  3. Visuals/Collateral Materials (i.e. Save-the-Dates, Invitations, Fliers, etc.)
  4. Data Development and “Quality” Targeting
  5. Sponsorship Development
  6. Promotions and PR
  7. Staging
  8. Event Flow and Pitch
  9. Staffing/Execution
  10. Follow-Up
