We view your event through the lens of a Development Director's eyes. We look for increased donor engagement and support, reduced costs whenever possible and unique opportunities to fundraise for your organization.
From Auction Galas to Golf tournaments to Benefit Lunches to Walks and Runs, we can manage your entire fundraising event from beginning to end. We handle budgeting, venue selection, procurement, logistics and all the details that ensure your fundraising event is executed seamlessly and successfully.
From brainstorming creative sponsorship opportunities to strategizing an approach to and management of solicitation and sponsor fulfillment, GFS Events is your partner at every level. We can contact sponsors, create a detailed sponsorship package and train your staff, board and volunteers on best practices for sponsor solicitation.
The best fundraising events motivate and engage attendees, and help donors internalize the mission of the organization so that they will be compelled to donate. GFS can help you craft your messaging and program for the event or simply assist as you execute it in a way that supports your message and objectives.
We will help you anticipate your committee and on-site volunteer needs. GFS can help you to assemble a skilled volunteer team ready to respond to all logistical needs for your event. We arm each one of your volunteers with a specifically defined responsibility and ensure that we all share a common goal: to create a seamless event flow. We help keep the event on time so that donors and guests can enjoy the event, listen to the messaging and ultimately donate to your organization.
