Wouldn’t you love to tell your donors that every dollar raised at your event will go directly to fund the organization? This would mean having every dollar you spend on the event covered by a sponsorship or an in-kind donation. This IS possible, regardless of the size of your organization.
Start out by considering what your organization has to offer. This will require you to know your numbers. How many households receive your organization’s newsletter, how often? How many social media followers do you have? How many donors receive your direct mail pieces? These numbers could add up to the sponsorship you need to cover your event.
