But before you begin packing your bathing suit and sunscreen we need to get down to some quick business!

How is your fundraising going so far this year?

  • Did you already have your Spring Benefit (Virtual?) or are you planning a summer Golf Outing or perhaps an Autumn Benefit?
  • Going Virtual or excited to invite guests back into the Ballroom?

Have you considered all the ways Travel Packages (RISK FREE!!) can enhance your strategy to raise MORE Mission Dollars?

  • Silent Auctions, Live Auctions, Online Auctions, Raffles and Sponsorships!!

Speaking of Sponsorships & Underwriting, have you considered Sponsorship $ that may need to shift from an In-Person Benefit to identifying ways to encourage Sponsorship with Virtual Events and Virtual opportunities?

  • Formerly, it may have been a $2500 or $5000 Sponsorship level for in person benefit with sponsorship $ going towards Tables, Center Pieces or sponsoring the Cocktail Hour of your Benefit.
  • Now Virtual Events have created Sponsorship opportunities & Name Recognition throughout an online auction which may run for several weeks, name recognition during live/virtual events, or how about an opportunity for a Sponsor to be in video describing the package which can then be used on social media and during live/virtual event?
  • Another value-add for having Travel Packages sponsored/underwritten is that the cost of the trip (and the sponsored amount) has the potential to raise much more than the cost price. If the cost price is $1500 yet, the Travel Package raised $2500, your Sponsor helped support mission dollars of $2500!

Now let’s talk about Raffles and hear from Fundraising Professional & Auctioneer Sherry Truhlar of Red Apple Auctions who explains the Best of Live Raffle and its benefit to virtual galas.

The Best of Live raffle is often a good one for in-person fundraising galas, but I find it particularly helpful in virtual galas when we might not be selling the same number of items in the live auction as we typically do in a standard event.” – Sherry Truhlar

How about these great Travel Packages offered in the Best of Raffles? Winners Choice!!
