Before you can even begin to write your event description, make sure you know precisely why your event is taking place. This will help you determine the tone and messaging of your copy.
Here are some of the top reasons organizations mount events:
- To raise awareness about a cause: If your nonprofit is geared towards funding research for an illness or providing support to an underprivileged community, an event is an excellent way to spread the word about what you’ve done, what you plan to do and what you’ve learned in your time immersed in your cause.
- To launch a new campaign: Similarly, if you’re launching a new campaign, whether on the ground or online, an event is a good way to get more people talking about and sharing your campaign.
- To raise funds: Fundraisers can generate a lot of revenue for nonprofits, but they can also be expensive to mount. According to the National Research Collaborative, 82 percent of nonprofits hold fundraising events to gain contributions and shed light on their causes. A good event description should compel people to show up and help raise funds for the organization. Set fundraising goals ahead of your event and measure your success afterward.
- To connect with new and old members: If you want to bolster member engagement or get non-members interested in joining your organization, an event is a great way to do so.
- Get support from your community: An event that engages local resources (i.e., local food businesses, suppliers and entertainers) can build community and offer a space for people to connect in a fun and meaningful way. A successful event leaves a good impression on people in your immediate area, allowing you to recruit more members or donors locally. Don’t forget to leverage the connections of those providing support to the event whether they are a vendor, volunteer or attendee. Ask everyone to share the event in advance through their social channels.
