Event Fundraising for Small Charities: MOB Events
Monday, 3 April 2017 from 14:00 to 16:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
MOBs can be anything – mud runs, obstacle courses, adventure races, costume chases – but what really defines them is that they are hyper social, they are often team based, and they are a whole lotta fun.
Since 2007, there has been a 700% increase in mass participation events (Eventbrite / Just Giving data). Runs account for 18 of the 25 largest third party fundraising events.
Fundraising for MOB events is up by 18% - so the question is, as a small charity, how can you get involved in this market?
During this Seminar Sarah will explore trends in the market and explore what is next for fundraising events. She will offer advice on how to enter the MOB market, with opportunities for small and large budgets, and will explore creative ways to make your investment go further and how to maximise your fundraising.
Following the Seminar we will run a Q & A session and workshop, giving all attendees the opportunity to share their experience and knowledge in the subject. During the workshop we will explore ways in which attendee charitable organisations can collaborate to create valuable fundraising experiences on a small budget.
This Seminar will be ideal for you if you are looking to develop your charity's fundraising events programme to include MOB events, with a view to:
• Increase fundraising
• Attract a new demographic of supporter to your charity
• Raise your charity's profile
The seminar will give you a thorough understanding of the MOB market, as well as plenty of advice on different ways to enter the market, to give you the maximum Return on Investment.
