Whether you’re hosting your fundraising event live, virtual or its a hybrid mix, one thing hasn’t changed: you need SPONSORS. CharityHowTo can help!

The formats for fundraising events have changed over the past year, but the guiding principles for recruiting event sponsors have not. Event sponsorship is sales, not philanthropy. You have to know what to sell and how to engage businesses in a true win-win partnership.

Join Joe Waters, a nationally recognized expert on event sponsorship and building win-win partnerships with businesses, as he shares his strategies and tactics for how to identify, cultivate, solicit and close sponsors for your event. Joe will solve your toughest corporate sponsorship challenges!

Joe is specifically qualified to teach this webinar because:

  1. Joe Waters is a nationally recognized writer, speaker, and consultant on sponsorship and win-win partnerships with businesses.
  2. His popular blog, Selfish Giving, has been showing businesses and nonprofits how to raise money and change the world since 2004. 
  3. Joe spent 20 years in the nonprofit sector fundraising with local, regional and national businesses and has raised millions of dollars through sponsorship and cause marketing. 

During This Nonprofit Webinar You Will Learn:

  • How to find your first or next event sponsor regardless of your event format (i.e. live, virtual, hybrid)
  • How to identify and create the bottom-line benefits that sponsors’ prize
  • How to organize your sponsorship materials
  • How to structure event sponsorship offerings and pricing
  • How to deliver an event sponsorship pitch that seals the deal
