Almost everyone has favorite charity.
It can be a service group such as Rotary or Kiwanis. It can be a national organization such as the American Cancer Society or even a local church.
So far, I’ve raised over $150,000 for Rotary clubs, Chambers of Commerce, and other charities by speaking at seminar fundraisers.
The concept is remarkably simple and you don’t have to sell a single raffle ticket (yawn).
In a nutshell, I will waive my speaking fee in lieu of a small stipend/travel expenses of about $500.
You must agree to put a minimum of 200 people in the room and allow me to soft-sell information products related to the program topic.
When those people pay about $30 a piece for my half-day program on leadership, your efforts will gross $6,000. Tack on a half-dozen corporate sponsors and the total dollars raised looks closer to $10,000!
The proven formula
I created a how-to manual that explains the nuts and bolts of this arrangement and how this success formula can work for you.
There is a 100-day promotion schedule, during which time, you and your team will receive encouragement, solutions to various marketing conundrums, and top-notch marketing tips, including Internet marketing strategies for using social media, etc.
This is a limited offer, since I only do about six of these pro-bono events per year.
What you should do next
If you’re interested in this unique fundraising opportunity, here’s what you should do next:
1) Read the short, how-to article on how to host a seminar fundraiser.
2) Meet with your team to explain the offer and determine their level of interest
3) Contact me to say “hi” and to inquire about specific event dates
4) Make plans to have you and your fundraising team members attend my free call on Mondays at 4 PM ET. Just have them call into my teleconference bridge line at 218-339-3600 using access code 686134*
Remember that when you sell raffle tickets, only a few people get to “win.” When you hold a seminar fundraiser, everyone wins. I hope we get the opportunity to work together!
