Special Events

FROM GALAS TO DONOR CULTIVATION EVENTS, each year we produce a variety of large and small special events in and around New York City. With an eye always on the bottom line, we work to make events as profitable and painless as possible, establishing and nurturing relationship with current and new donors. Working closely with staff, volunteers and

board members, we effectively engage your team in special event planning and fundraising. We know that special events must deliver a message to donors and we create events that are meaningful and creative. And we are not afraid of first time events.

Writing & Design Services

Whether it's launching a new branding campaign for an entire organization or creating an invitation for a one-time special event, we create cost-effective donor and constituent communications. With our in-house design studio, we can provide a full range of creative services from concept to delivery:

  • Direct Mail and Newsletters
  • Online Appeals and Web Promotions
  • Printed Brochures and Stewardship Materials
  • Annual Reports and Case Statements
  • Websites and Webpage Design
  • Special Event Invitations and Collateral
  • Press Releases and Fact Sheets

WRITING AND DESIGNING cost-effective case materials is a large part of what we do. We gather information by interviewing staff, board, volunteers, clients and donors to articulate a fresh, compelling case for support.

In addition to writing newsletters, annual reports and brochures, we create the kinds of supporting materials that go into a professional press kit, major donor packet or foundation proposal package, such as organization overviews, program summaries, fact sheets, maps, timelines, client stories, and our favorite, the Donor Q&A – answers to the ten most challenging questions donors ask when being solicited for a gift to your organization.


Workshops & Trainings

We provide a wide variety of trainings and workshops appropriate for audiences at varying levels of experience and enthusiasm for fundraising. In addition to client trainings, our team has entertained audiences across the country at venues including but not limited to: Art New York, Berkshire Taconic Foundation, Center for Non-Profit Success, Columbia School of Public Health, Fundraising Day in New York, Grassroots Institute for Fundraising and Training, Non-Profit Coordinating Committee of New York and Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York.
