New Guide for Increasing Performance of Nonprofit Events Available at www.convio.com/rwr2010

With the downturn in the economy, nonprofit executives and board members are more focused than ever on ensuring a positive return on investment (ROI) for development programs. Convio and Event 360, Inc., today released a guide designed to help nonprofit professionals better understand:

  • the scope of the challenges they face when it comes to event fundraising;
  • the importance of analytics; and
  • strategies to deliver successful fundraising events.

The guide, introduced during a keynote session at the annual Run Walk Ride Council conference, provides insight into key metrics and best practices that nonprofits can implement to increase fundraising growth and event participation based on research and lessons learned from some of the nation’s most successful charity fundraising events. The guide is available at: www.convio.com/rwr2010 or www.event360.com/resources.

Currently, event fundraisers are experiencing increased pressure to cut costs and produce events with leaner budgets, yet in many cases provide for increased numbers of participants. When planned and executed with a combination of best practices, strategies, and the appropriate tools, event fundraising can contribute to a nonprofit’s bottom line. By measuring important data and using it strategically, organizations are finding ways to increase efficiency and event success.
