I’ve been planning events, inside non-profits, for over 15 years, so I have a unique perspective when it comes to events. In my experience, most non-profits focus on the event planning details instead on how the event is serving their mission and big picture goals for the year. Are the right people going to be in the room? Is your team prepared to talk with them that night? How are you going to use the event as a springboard for building relationships with your donors? If you haven’t asked yourselves these questions, it’s time to start!

Events are expensive and time-consuming, so if you aren’t taking full advantage of what your event can do for your organization, you are leaving money on the table. I look at events as one small piece, of a much bigger picture, and I want to see non-profits making their events more effective. I will help them think more strategically about what they need their events to do, set goals, and analyze whether their events actually accomplish those goals.

The event logistics and details are important, but leave those up to LW Events, so your team can focus on your mission and donors that night. We will take the stress off your shoulders so you can focus on your organization’s mission and goals.
