From the Minors to the Major League – Taking Your Events to the Next Level

Planning events as part of your annual development strategy can be a challenge. Attracting the right people, generating positive results and growing with your organization throughout the course of planning a large fundraising event can stretch even the most well-organized nonprofits. How can you improve your “batting average” when planning events to expand your capacity and improve your bottom line? Join us to hear from two of our local nonprofit leaders who have taken their organizations’ annual events from the “minors to the major league.”

In our ongoing series centering on fundraising and event development, Angie Carmignani, Executive Director of The Taylor Family Foundation, teams up with Ted Sortwell Clement, Jr., Executive Director of Save Mount Diablo to share practical steps to aid you in “hitting a home run” with your next event!
