The Program:

You like to help charities and non-profits, yet you can justify doing only a few free engagements a year. What if there were a way to help them raise funds *and* get paid — often handsomely?

The organization — and its supporters — will consider you a hero, as you’re helping them get money that they wouldn’t get from just donations alone. You are enabling them to offer something of high value to their donors, and engage people who might not have donated otherwise.

You’ll showcase in front of decision makers who can hire you for their company’s events. You’ll network with influential people who love to attend fundraisers — people you’d like to reach who won’t come out for anything, but they will come out for fundraisers. Plus, you can get powerful testimonials you couldn’t access any other way.

Tom shares what he’s learned to make this uncommon idea work so it’s a win/win/win.

During this program you will learn how to:

  • Use fundraisers to get tons of publicity and if done well, meet high power producers, hosts, writers and journalists who will welcome the chance to work with you.
  • Structure deals so both you and the group make money.
  • Structure and monitor the agreement so you get the biggest attendance possible — you don’t want only three people showing up and if you aren’t careful, it could happen that way.
  • Avoid unexpected costs that could eat up the money — don’t let that happen to you.
  • Find meeting space with awesome AV equipment with ZERO costs.
