Nice Things  PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

They more than tripled the amount they had raised the previous year!

“I worked with the GFS Events Team on the Taste of the Valley auction for the Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance recently. I was so impressed! They more than TRIPLED the amount they had raised the previous year because of GFS’s excellent connections and organization of volunteers. Those are results to brag about! In addition, I heard people throughout the evening, including the auctioneer, say that this was one of the best events they had ever attended.”

-Jenni Butz

Owner, Wordspark

GFS Events helped us coordinate a large fundraising event, and it was flawless!

“Being brand new to the nonprofit fundraising world, I wouldn’t have known where to even begin without their support. Everyone we worked with at GFS Events was a true professional, listened to what we wanted, and helped us find creative solutions that worked within our budget. They were highly organized and skilled at moving our planning forward in a way that never felt rushed or overwhelming. They really shined on event day, where everything ran like a well-oiled machine.”

-Katy Herko

Philanthropy Manager

Highly recommend GFS for fundraising and events.

“2020 was a difficult year for fundraising, we could not have done it without GFS. We transitioned our regular 2000 person walk & run to a virtual fundraiser. Not only did GFS help us beat our fundraising goal, they ended up working about 2-3 months longer than originally expected. I HIGHLY recommend GFS for fundraising and events. They have helped us with our event for multiple years now. Great work again!”

-Brad Near

Vice President, Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation

Gazala and her team provide valuable insight

“I worked with an organization that typically brought in a fundraising assistant each year and instead, we decided to hire GFS events and I absolutely believe it was the best choice. Not only did they provide a skilled auction coordinator to help us plan and execute our second virtual event, as importantly, Gazala and her team provided valuable expertise in guiding us with options and decisions to consider throughout the process. I highly recommend GFS!”

Proud to have exceeded our fundraising goal by $40,000!

“We had the pleasure of working with Sarah at GFS to spearhead our Spring Salon Fundraiser (virtual program) for our non-profit, Key to Change. Her design sense and branding for our event was on point and made our entire presentation look professional and engaging. The fundraising platform GFS recommended, Auctria, was easy to use for our donors and the way Sarah designed everything made it all over the top. We were proud to have exceeded our fundraising goal by $40,000! GFS’ fees were certainly money well spent. Would highly recommend!”
