106: Down With the Golf Tournament

You’re about to dive into a podcast episode that’s gonna change the game for your nonprofit’s events. 

On this episode of Charity Therapy, Alicia Baraga joins Jess, and she’s the superstar behind Ripple Event Marketing. We’re unpacking all the tips and tricks to create fundraising events that are as unique as your mission – and it’s not just about throwing another boring gala.

Jess and Alicia kick things off by chatting about the wildest events they’ve seen, from a beanbag tournament on a baseball field to a dueling piano showdown in an airplane hangar (yep, you heard that right!). We’ll help you figure out who your crowd is and how to plan something they’ll actually want to show up for, all without breaking the bank. Alicia dishes out the real talk on why it’s super important to set clear goals so you can high-five yourself when your event is a smash hit.

We know money can be tight, especially when you’re just starting out. That’s why we talk about where you can be smart with your budget, like maybe picking up some know-how from a course like Event Brand Boot Camp instead of hiring a full-blown event planner right off the bat. By the end, you’ll have a bunch of resources and enough confidence to plan an event that might just be the talk of the town.

Tune in, take notes, and get ready to throw an event that will have everyone buzzing with excitement!

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Alicia Baraga spills the beans on rocking nonprofit events with limited cash and space
  • Pinpoint where you really need help and consider taking a class like Event Brand Boot Camp
  • Unique venues can turn a blah event into the talk of the town
  • Sponsorship is about making friends with local businesses who dig what you do
  • Find sponsors early in the planning stage
  • Talk to your boss about funding your event
