Good Events Now!

My name isand I’m a fundraising event addict.

Here at The Common Good, we’re BIG fans of Special Event Fundraising.

Trust me, I’ve been to a LOT of awful events, including walks, golf tournaments, and so, so many Gala Dinner; Silent Auctions. A endless nightmare of bad food, tarted-up-yet-still-lacklustre venues and uninspired themes sometimes in direct opposition to the mission – all with brutally high cost ratios.

BUT I believe strongly that special event fundraising stands proudly beside their Annual Giving, Major Gifts and Planned Gift cousins by any metric. Done right, they are donor engagement machines and can contribute to every part of the fundraising cycle like no other tool in the tool chest.

That’s why we’ve created a dedicated events branch of The Common Good, Good Events Now! Just shoot the signal into the sky and our special ops team will spring into action to help our fundraising colleagues develop and manage the very best examples of these magical donor engagement machines.
