Event fundraising


While Lassiter & Associates is skilled in all aspects of event fundraising, we believe events should be part of a larger fundraising strategy. This is why we take on only event work designed primarily to advance revenue for clients’ causes.

Our record is one of 100 percent success in netting event revenue significantly above event costs. Concerts, gala dinners, receptions, issue briefings, private home events, and cultivation and stewardship events help build capacity for our nonprofit clients. Lassiter’s consultants understand that events must be fun, inspiring, and mission-driven—but that events must also serve as entry points, increasing revenue and providing long-term benefits.

  • Event design and planning: Lassiter’s experienced event planners and fund development professionals work together with our clients to develop mission-driven, brand-consistent events.
  • Event fundraising and marketing: We develop robust and achievable fundraising plans, with specific gross and net goals and a marketing strategy.
  • Event management: Dozens of tasks and roles need to align to make your event a success. We cover both the high-level and basic services that lead to a smooth experience.
