Dropbox Business lets you securely access, share
and collaborate on all your work files. Here’s how to use it to plan your
next fundraising event. Open up Dropbox Business and start a project
folder for your fundraiser. Okay, now to think about the purpose
of the fundraising campaign.
Create a Paper doc to start adding your ideas. Once you’ve all
decided on a goal, start thinking about talking points for your speakers.
Looking at venues? Add in any ideas you have along the way. When you’re
ready to share where you’re at, just set access permissions and choose
who you want to view it. Ready to map everything out? Create an event timeline
in the paper doc so everyone can see how they’re tracking. Now to stay on
top of the budget. Let everyone know what the event budget is and how much
you expect to raise with ticket sales and donations. When it’s time to start
pulling everything for the event together, save yourself the headache of sending emails
back and forth. Request venue packages and supplier quotes straight to your
project folder for everyone to see with Dropbox file requests.
Narrowed down your speakers? Add in their photos and bios and
get consensus from the team. Great. Now for the invitations. Preview the
mockups all from your web browser on Dropbox.com. Simply comment on any changes
you want made to the doc and you’re good to go. The invitations are done
and ready to be sent off, but who to invite? Update the attendee list
on the go from where ever you are and if someone can’t make it to your
event, you’ll know right away. The day is almost here. You begin finalising
all the media to show at the event. A video outlining your nonprofits cause
just needs sign off from the board. They drop comments in, straight into the video
using time-based comments so you know exactly what needs changing.
Today’s the day. Get ready for your fundraiser to take centre stage.
Here goes. What a success! The attendees couldn’t stop talking
about it. The ticket sales and donations alone said it all. Time to share the
best parts of the night with attendees, donors, and your board members. Take your fundraising event to the next level
with Dropbox business. Try it today for free.
