A Step-by-Step Guide for the Development Team featuring sample invitation text, host packets, and an event agenda.

Category: . Tag: .

At Front Range Source, we’re big fans of the fundraising “house party” as a tool for nonprofits to bring in new donors.

The idea is that a volunteer (could be a board member or front line volunteer) hosts an intimate gathering of friends, neighbors or colleagues at their home or office to introduce new people to your organization.

A house party is a great way to cultivate potential donors in a welcoming environment where they can learn about your organization and receive personal attention from your organization’s leadership.

We’ve seen first-hand how a house party can be one of the most effective means of raising friends and money – if expectations are clear on both sides.

This e-book will provide you with:

  • The key elements of a successful house party.
  • A suggested breakdown of roles and responsibilities, so you and your host are on the same page from the start.
  • Specific ideas for how to make the ask.
  • A toolbox of resources, including a guide for your house party host, sample invitation language, an event agenda, and more.
