Are third party fundraising events hazardous to your health?
In this week’s episode, you’re going to benefit from mistakes made by others.
When people approach your organization with big dreams of helping you raise money by throwing an event in your name, or wanting to partner with you for an event, what usually happens?
Does it ever live up to your expectations?
Does it zap your staff’s time and resources for little or no reward?
Does it put your organization’s reputation at risk?
Does it open up your organization to lawsuits, or a visit from the IRS?
In today’s video, Esmeralda Salazar from Hopelink talks about how and why they started putting together a policy for third party fundraising events. She walks you through the thinking behind some of the key areas they address in their policy. Their policy has saved them lots of grief and has helped to strengthen relationships with the people who want to help them raise funds.
This video is a little longer than most of the Movie Monday episodes so you may want to fill up your coffee cup or pop a little popcorn before watching it. 🙂
