NGO Connect Feature – Event Management

NGO Connect Feature: Event Management

NGO Connect comes with unique event management tools that are a strength of the application. Most nonprofits use various types of events for “friend-raising”, fundraising, and program-related purposes, and may utilize multiple tools to manage them all (including Excel). It is worthwhile to start thinking about how you may transition your event management to take advantage of what NGO Connect has to offer.

  • Ability to manage multi-session, multi-venue conferences and seminars. Most popular traditional donor databases don’t support complex, multi-part events. By contrast, that’s exactly the type of event that NGO Connect was designed to manage.
  • Traditional gala and golf management. The same tools that provide for multi-part events are easily adapted for events that don’t have multiple sessions and complex scheduling. Track sponsorship levels, menu choices, golf foursomes and seating groups.
  • The Events Wizard, used to set up the event, is a complete event planning tool that is unique to NGO Connect. The Events Wizard, particularly the task planning tools, should allow event managers to ditch many of their spreadsheets and start working in NGO Connect from the onset of their event management tasks.
  • Venue and seating design. Set up venues and use the design tools to create a visual representation of the space. Place tables, the stage, podiums, and so on onto a custom venue design. Use the seating tool to place registrants at tables for assigned seating events. The drag-and-drop setup tools make seating and venue design quick and customized. 
For nonprofits that make significant use of events, planning ahead to use NGO Connect Events will make a big difference in the success of your implementation.
