Wedding Season

2a7d2109ed2cdf8dd94d387ebf5fb446-huge-weWhat are your travel plans this summer? Like any good millennial, I’m spending a lot of time traveling to attend friends’ weddings. As much as I’m loving the opportunity to celebrate such an important and exciting milestone with people who are so dear to me, my bank account is definitely taking a hit. Of course, as the brides and grooms I’m celebrating are quick to tell me, planning a wedding is not exactly cheap, either. It’s safe to say we’re all trying to be a little more budget conscious.

Your organization may not be planning a wedding—although I’ve seen many churches, museums, and historical houses transformed into gorgeous wedding venues—but every organization hosts events, and those events can get expensive.

Wouldn’t you like to find some opportunities to save money? Our Organizational Best Practices workshop, OBP: Events—On a Budget, can help you identify places in your events budget where you can not only save money, but also make money. More money in the bank means more money to spend on the mission, and that’s a win for everyone.

Wedding season is officially here - and I feel it just the same!
We work to save money on events by vetting with multiple vendors and ensuring our sponsorships cover all the event expenses. Budgets are essential and we stick to it!

We had a SUPER successful event (dinner) held at one of our physician's homes this past month. Lapsed and new donors came out of the woodwork to support our cause (expanding our child & adolescent psychiatric inpatient clinic/services). Amazing what marketing, word-of-mouth, and fantastic connections can do for a cause! We actually saved money on the event by getting sponsors early on and also hiring an event planner for day-of operations... sounds like it's more expensive, but it allowed our fundraisers to do what they do best - raise money! totally worth it.
