Eventbrite and CrowdRise Announce Fundraising Best Practices Webinar Featuring Best-in-class Events

October 17th, 2014

CrowdRise and Eventbrite will host a free webinar, Game On! Boost Your Fundraising With Gamification & Competition Strategies, on Wednesday, October 22nd at 11 am PT (2pm ET), highlighting events that have made a transformative difference in their event fundraising through gamification strategies.

Webinar registrants will learn:

  • Best practices from marquee events like the Boston Marathon, NYC Marathon, and Top Spin
  • Interesting ways non-profits have inspired donors to act differently
  • How to employ concepts such as gamification to increase event registration

Gary Wohlfeill, Director of Marketing at CrowdRise, a leading online fundraising platform, will lead the webinar. Gary works with partners across industries to develop highly engaging and successful fundraising campaigns. Before CrowdRise, Gary was the Creative Director at Moosejaw, a multi-channel outdoor retailer that has been recognized as a leader in brand marketing and innovation.

“We’ve seen innovative non-profits and events grow their fundraising programs by going beyond the usual call-to-action to donate. They ask their most passionate supporters to become fundraisers and raise alongside their traditional donate campaigns,” said Wohlfeill, Director of Marketing at CrowdRise.

“The very best are able to engage those fundraisers with incentives and games to make the experience not only rewarding, but fun. A $25 donor is great, but if you can turn them into a $250 fundraiser you can change the game. ”
