Traditional benefits still play a big role in the fundraising initiatives for many nonprofits. And with event season upon us, now is the time to capitalize on all of your resources in order to ensure the most fundraising success this year. Unfortunately given their nature, typical events can be hindering in terms of who can attend or who you choose to market them to. Such limitations may mean missing an opportunity to raise awareness about your mission or even the loss of potential donations.

Crowdfunding gives you the ability to “open up the virtual doors” on your events to change the narrative on how you market them so that you can ultimately reach more people and raise more money. By adopting a crowdfunding approach, you will reach a broader audience, have the opportunity to engage new potential donors throughout the season, and ultimately create a larger network of individuals who are invested in your work.

Please join Dana Ostomel, founder of, to learn the tools you need to create an effective and socially engaging approach to maximize your next benefit.
