Often when we work with non-profit organizations to help them create a plan to raise more money for their cause, they discuss implementing the plan next year or the ever-elusive “later.” Many people are feeling the financial squeeze right now, but the top 10% are not. Things have never been better for them. It may not always be this way, so you must strike while the proverbial iron is hot. The time to raise more money is right now.

Having trouble getting your donors to buy tables for your fundraising event? Here are some other sponsorship opportunities you can promote instead.
Raising money for your non-profit organization before your event starts is about more than just selling tables. Not every possible donor will want to buy a table they have to fill, and selling tables means you can’t qualify who is at your event. Instead, give your sponsors a choice on how they support your fundraising event. They can choose the option that aligns with their values, goals, and budget rather than deciding whether to buy a table or not.
