NON-PROFIT EVENT PLANNING

Does this sound familiar?

  • We would like to launch or revitalize a special fundraising event like a golf outing or an auction.  

  • We have a major milestone anniversary approaching and we want to celebrate with a special event.

  • We are looking for a creative way to raise funds for a particular operational arm of our organization.

  • We have an annual gala that has grown stagnate and is in need of revitalization. 

  • We need to start to restructure our events to be more creative while spending less money.

 

BEGIN WITH EXPERT EVENTS


THE CONCEPTION

From larger events like a gala weekend, to mid-sized events like a silent auction, to smaller events like a VIP cocktail reception, Expert Events will help to devise an event experience that is best suited to meeting your goals, maximizing your resources, and will be a celebration of your organization's history and mission.

THE PLAN

We will work with your key staff to create action plans based on your goals.  We will provide detailed timelines and regular status reports to ensure that your event can afford to be ambitious, but achievable.  Our team will handle all event logistics from the largest details, such as sourcing vendors, creating collateral materials, and ensuring seamless registration, to the smallest details, such as making sure there are working outlets where equipment needs to be plugged in.
