Sustainability Network Training Workshop: Creating and Fundraising for Events

Toronto, Ontario
February 2, 2010

9:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
215 Spadina Avenue, 4th Floor, Alterna Room

This workshop will help answer some important questions:

  • Who is your demographic?
  • What do they like?
  • What is your organization trying to communicate?
  • What is the main function of your event?

From this starting point, you will be able to sculpt your special event to best suit your goals. The rest of the morning will be spent creating your event and discussing the important asset: volunteers. We will create a critical path which will include a timeline and goals for all stages. Fundraising aspects such as sponsorship and in-kind donation will be addressed. In the afternoon, we will break into groups and begin working on planning an event. You will experience logistical needs as well as begin to create leads and opportunities for your fundraising needs. You will leave with a plan of action on how to move forward to create a successful and appropriate event for your organization - and how to continue with donor relations.

The workshop will be led by Melissa Greiner, principal of MG Events, a full service event, marketing and management firm specializing in the fields of not for profit agencies.

Fee: $120 or $90 if organizational budget < $250 000
