Innovative Fundraising Dinners
A Fresh Perspective on a Time-Tested Model

“Five years ago, I had a big idea, little experience, and zero revenue. By God's grace, I stumbled upon this events manual and followed the model. Eleven major events later, with over $1 million in annual revenue, the results speak for themselves. This manual contains the primary strategy God provided to help us fund our ministry from the ground up.” Luke Womack, The Go Fund

Intentional new-giver strategies are essential for nonprofit growth. Fundraising events play a significant role in connecting new givers to the cause, not to mention have substantial benefit on an organization’s bottom line. 

Over the past two decades, Mission Increase’s Events Manual has helped thousands of leaders, just like Luke, to invite new champions, raise money, grow existing champions and build community through inspiring fundraising dinners.

With the updated manual as our guide, this workshop will walk through a proven model for fundraising events. You will learn how to:

  • Build and train a team of coordinators, table hosts and speakers 
  • Create a narrative arc that culminates with a pointed invitation to join your movement
  • Incorporate experiential elements that reflect the unique character of your organization
  • Embed focused prayer throughout your event 
  • Design a strategic follow-up plan that will leverage your effort long into the future

Come to this workshop to receive your copy of the new manual and learn how to recruit the team, plan the program and integrate the follow-up strategy that will turn your event into a catalyst for growth.
