Winning With Event Fundraising.
Welcome to the only website dedicated to the advancement of event fundraising. MMC is the go-to online site for the development professional fundraising through events. There are online sites dedicated to fundraising, but the focus leans towards major gifts, planned giving, direct mail and board development. MMC is definitely different. We focus exclusively on the development, planning and execution of fundraising events. This includes walks, endurance events, galas, third party events, DIY fundraising and more.
Are you overwhelmed by the myriad of endless details and never seem to get ahead of the planning curve?
What can you expect to find? Everything and anything related to producing successful fundraising events. You’ll find information regarding timelines, marketing, online registration, day of execution, volunteer recruitment, strategic planning, securing sponsors and the most important aspect – raising the necessary funds for your organization to meet budgets and finance your mission.
We bring this information to you in a very straightforward, easy to understand fashion with real world examples; sometimes in a fun, irreverent way, but always with ideas that impact your program. But never forget, a fundraising event is a business and lacking the correct planning, investment and execution it can quickly turn into a horror “movie.” (but we’ll help you make your event into a winning blockbuster).
Events should be fun and generate excitement for your donors, volunteers and staff.
With the sluggish economy the competition for donor dollars is fierce. In this competitive marketplace the organization that applies current processes while producing a well run, efficient event will gain traction and see revenue growth. Hosting the right events, at the right time, for the right audience is more important than ever to an organization’s bottom line. Are you maximizing your events and their revenue streams?
Michael Malekoff Consulting (MMC) provides information about logistics – setting up event venues, managing registration, volunteer management and site permitting. MMC also helps plan your event – creating timelines, recruiting participants, driving fundraising, and building retention models for future events. You’ll have an ongoing Q&A section to answer questions, the ability to share best practices and hear industry leaders speak about achieving event success. Coming soon — an education program providing ongoing interactive webex sessions on event topics like sponsorship recruitment, board participation and peer-to-peer fundraising. In July our first one-day professional event seminar will take place in Boston (detailed information under EVENTS tab).
MMC is your ‘go to’ place for the most up to date event fundraising information. As the site builds out and adds event tools you’ll see more and more helpful resources. This is your event fundraising site! We want to hear your ideas and suggestions.
