Tough Economic Times Call For a New Fundraising Approach
In a recent poll, fundraising associations and organizations see one of their top challenges as, "Donors seem to be tired of the same products and services being offered to them." In addition, the seventh annual GuideStar Nonprofit Economic Survey released on October 29, 2008 revealed significant challenges for charities. It showed:
• The proportion of charity representatives reporting decreased contributions nearly doubled between 2007 and 2008
• Almost half of participants from nonprofits that rely on end-of-year gifts expect donations to decline during the last quarter of 2008 compared to the last quarter of 2007
“We know associations and organizations are looking for a new way to raise funds, especially during these tough economic times. They want an innovative way to generate donor support, keep more of the profit with virtually zero out of pocket costs,” said Greg Jerralds, Chief Operating Officer with San Antonio based, Profit InnerCircle™
, LLC. “In addition, business leaders are willing to donate to a great cause in exchange for cutting-edge business strategies and techniques that could help improve sales and maximize profits.”
The Reagan High School and Bush Middle School Choral Departments in North East ISD have already partnered with Profit InnerCircle President and CEO, Davy Tyburski. Mr. Tyburski, the international business speaker and author, will conduct two exclusive 90-minute events at Reagan High School. The first event will be held on Saturday April 18, 2009 at 3:00 pm. The second event will be held on Monday April 20, 2009 at 7:00 pm.
These proven and time-tested methods have been delivered to many individuals, companies and organizations nationally and internationally including Master Lock, the Walt Disney Company, Medtronic, Goodyear, Kellogg's, and Microsoft to name a few. Profit InnerCircle just released its latest book, The Best Kept Profit Secret: The Executive’s Guide to Transforming a Cost Center Into a Profit Center.
Mr. Tyburski will reveal a few profit secrets from the book during his 90-minute, high energy, business presentation. All attendees receive a copy of the new book and bonuses valued at over $500.00.
“Because of budget shortfalls and a lack of innovative fundraising ideas available to associations and organizations, we see a chance to lend a hand by conducting fundraising events that not only support the organization; they also benefit business leaders! We’re committed to furthering the success of children and education by donating up to 80% of the profit from these exclusive 90-minute fundraising events,” said Mr. Tyburski.
Mr. Jerralds, co-author, will join Mr. Tyburski at the events and take part in the post-event book signing sessions. Both events are open to the public and will be held at the Reagan High School auditorium, 19000 Ronald Reagan, San Antonio, Texas (in the Stone Oak area located off Sontera Blvd).
Seating is limited. To check dates, register and learn more about these exclusive events, visit http://www.thebestkeptprofitsecret.com/register.html
