Fundraising Event Tips for the New Year – The Nonprofit Tech Carnival

We are looking for fundraising event tips for the fundraising strategies and nonprofit tech blog carnival.

It’s hard to believe, but 2016 is finally wrapping up! Pretty soon, we’ll be ringing in the New Year and swearing to keep our resolutions this time around.

Between celebration and goal setting, we hope you’ll take a moment to participate in this round of the Fundraising Strategies & Nonprofit Tech Carnival. Booster is happy to be hosting!

What’s the Fundraising Strategies & Nonprofit Tech Carnival?

The carnival is organized with two goals in mind:

  1. To provide the nonprofit tech audience a go-to place to discover top-quality, educational content.
  2. To give thought leaders and influencers in the sector an outlet to showcase their great writing and work.

Here’s how the carnival main page describes things:

“[We are] dedicated to curating the best information the web has to offer for members of the nonprofit community looking to polish their fundraising tactics and learn more about innovative ways to incorporate technology.”

The carnival rotates through hosts on a monthly basis. Each month, there’s a new theme that guides all submissions.

Our Theme — Fundraising Event Tips and Strategies for the New Year

Now, here’s the fun part…the theme announcement.

Given the timing of our hosting duties, we’ve decided to capitalize on the forward-thinking mindset everyone is in and ask you to submit articles, eBooks, guides, and other resources that answer one or more of the following questions:

  • What’s the best fundraising event advice you have?
  • How do you plan out your fundraising events?
  • How do events fit into your bigger fundraising plans?
  • What would you tell someone to make their event stand out?
  • How can you incorporate other engagement activities into events?
  • How can you raise more money at your fundraising events?

To get an idea of some of the subject matter we’re looking to see addressed, here’s an example from the Booster blog of an on-theme resource, “Planning Fundraising Events: A Complete How-To Guide.”
