Do you know of anyone doing any third-party fundraisers that are looking for a deserving nonprofit to support?
Well, spring has definitely sprung and it is time for many of us to dust off the clubs, bicycles, etc.
This is also a time when many nonprofits put on various outdoor fundraisers, such as golf tournaments, bike races, etc. Quite often, smaller and medium size nonprofits are unable to put on their own fundraisers because they lack enough employees, members, or a large volunteer support base to organize and run the fundraiser, which many larger nonprofit organizations have.
So what is an option?
Third-party fundraising involves independent projects undertaken by an individual, affiliated group or organization, for the purpose of raising funds for, or on behalf of, a chosen charity.
A third-party fundraiser will help a nonprofit continue its work and increase the positive impact it has on our community. As many nonprofit agencies rely on limited funding from Government and some may get some money from organizations like United Way, but mostly they rely on community support – especially during these times of growing demands in service.
If you or any individuals or business that you know are planning to put on a golf tournament or some other type of event, I have clients that would benefit by this. One in particular, the Epilepsy Association of Calgary would benefit greatly by a third party event as they are both short in volunteers and financial resources. I am confident I will be able to help anyone who wishes to put on a third-party fundraiser in finding a charity like the Epilepsy Association of Calgary which would be very deserving of the funds raised.
