December Webinar Sale - 50% Off

special_offer_tag.jpgSpecial Event Fundraising:
Auctions, Sponsorships and Acknowledgments

From picking a name and getting a venue, through sending the invitations, getting all the required permits, getting the right insurance, staffing the event, serving alcohol, acknowledging donations, and reporting to the IRS, there are a lot of technical rules to follow. This webinar is for nonprofit board, staff and volunteers who have any responsibility for the event, outside event planners, and their professional advisers. It can help your event be a spectacular success, instead of a continuing legal headache.

Charities running special event fundraisers have struggled for years to stay compliant with the law. Many new issues have emerged from “virtual” events over the last few years. Now is the time to put the new rules and the old rules together in planning your next fundraiser.

This webinar will take you through a step-by-step review of key legal issues, from initial planning to final reporting. It will allow you to put together a comprehensive check list for your specific event.

Price: $44.50

That's 50% off its regular price of $89.
