Resources: Get Your Special Event on Track
Whether you’re raising money or awareness of your mission, a special event can be an effective fundraising tool. You’ll raise money while interacting one on one with donors that share the passions of your organization. In addition, unlike large donations and grants that often restrict the use of funds to certain programs or activities, the donations associated with special events usually come without restrictions.
