You Are Invited!

Think about the last event you attended. Did you want to go? Was it good? If so, what makes an event good? You probably know what I’m going to say. A good event not only needs food and entertainment, but it needs to meet goals and make an impact. Whether you love them or hate them, events are necessary in the social good world. Why? Because people crave connection, invitation, belonging, purpose, and community. We all need face-to-face interaction to stay healthy and sane. Social good organizations need personal connections, too, which is where events come in.

In our latest eLearning course, Organizational Best Practices: Basics of Events, learn about event-specific terminology, common types of events, how to create events step-by-step, and how to ensure and assess the success of your events.

Now only one more question remains. Are you ready to take your event planning to the next level? If so, you are cordially invited to sign up today!

Emily, so true when you say "...people crave connection, invitation, belonging, purpose, and community. " Good post.

Really hadn't considered the value of events outside of fundraising or networking,  I appreciate this perspective on the importance of events for social good orgs.

Events are such a great way to "friend-raise", even if they don't serve as a major revenue source in themselves. They set the stage for donor face-time which really helps in the non-event stewardship.

To answer the first part of this question, I find that lots of people who dread going to an event end up having a blast in the end!
