About

With the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, we know it’s a challenging time for everyone. To support your work and ensure our trainings are more accessible during this difficult time, we’re offering all of our fee-based self-paced courses at a discounted rate. Course regular rate $35 current rate $20.

When it comes to engaging board members in fundraising, special events are familiar territory. At their best, board members rally to find sponsors, sell tickets, and network like pros at the event itself. Afterwards, they may exhale and sit back for much of the year until gala time rolls around again.

There is an alternative to this cycle. Learn how to turn events into a launching point for your board members to recruit new supporters (particularly for major gifts), deepen existing relationships, and get out and ask year-round.

In this recorded webinar, Judy Levine and Gregory Cohen from Cause Effective will share her lessons from years of helping boards move toward building long-term donor relationships, using events as only one of many strategies in their year-round friend-raising arsenal.
