Events Don’t Have To Be Expensive

16d4cbaed048647f9c0257c760341595-huge-leAs we do at the beginning of every year, my husband and I review our budget and look for places to cut costs. We enjoy going out to eat and doing fun things together as a family, but with five people on the tab, the costs add up quickly. We’ve been brainstorming cheaper options that will still be fun ways for our family to connect.

Maybe you’re doing the same thing at your organization—especially when it comes to your events. Events are a great way to engage your supporters and find new ones, but they can be expensive and a drain on a tight budget. Good news! You don’t have to cancel your events or plan brown-bag lunches. You can host enjoyable, impactful events without breaking the bank.

Our new Organizational Best Practices: Events—On a Budget course is full of great tips to save money, time, and your sanity. Learn to reduce expenses and maximize your resources while connecting with others.

After an event, are guests excited about your mission? Can they share your vision with others? How can you make your mission the centerpiece of your events and still have fun? Our updated Organizational Best Practices: Events—Mission Driven course can show you how to turn attendees into ambassadors for your organization.

Great points.  I have worked for organizations who have these extravagant events; however, the end result isn't what was expected due to overspending. At my current organization we have recently discussed revamping our events to make them more impactful without breaking the bank.
