Strides2Wellness @ Pathstone Mental Health
Nov 5 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Did you know that there is growing research that being active, or increasing your activity levels can decrease anxiety and depression? Statistics show an alarming increase in childhood obesity due to lack of exercise and poor diet, increasing children’s risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Physical fitness, through a healthy and active lifestyle is why Strides2Wellness began.

This run/walk/roll (wheelchair) is aimed to engage the community in being active and outdoors. Choose from 1km, 5km and 10km options where you will cross the finish line earning a commemorative medal and limited edition swag that gives you bragging rights for your accomplishment. Proceeds support Pathstone Mental Health.

This event is hosted by Strides2Wellness and Pathstone Mental Health.

Fundraising & Communications: Building a Sponsorship Proposal That Works @ Online
Nov 16 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Are you sending out sponsorship packages every week and hearing nothing back? Gold, Silver, Bronze doesn’t work… but what do you use instead? Simply throwing together a bunch of facts about your cause along with a chart with predefined levels is not going to cut it in the highly competitive sponsorship space.

Building a sponsorship deck is a process and it requires your organization to ask some tough questions. In this session, sponsorship expert Chris Baylis of The Sponsorship Collective will show you exactly what you need to do to build a business case that sponsors will want to read.

In this session you will learn:

  • What every sponsorship package must have and what you should never include
  • The end of Gold, Silver, Bronze and what to replace it with
  • The importance of audience data and how to use it to attract sponsors
  • How to engage your leadership and board of directors and get internal buy in
  • Using sponsor feedback to build a sponsorship package and set up the sale
  • Short cuts and time saving techniques for implementation

This webinar is hosted by Charity Village.
