Los Angeles Non Profit Event Planning

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Los Angeles non profit event planning can have it challenges. After all, how do you pull off an elegant high-profile event on a shoestring budget? Very carefully!

I recently produced this event and one key factor when it comes to Los Angeles non profit event planning is the budget. It is important to adhere to the guidelines set forth by the client and maintain the budget throughout the event process in order for the client to maximize their net profit of donations. For this event, we created streamlined centerpieces using glass colored beads and orchid plants.

Another way we were able to maintain our budget was to bring in our own wines and serve heavy appetizers and desserts instead of a seated formal dinner.  The fact that guests were able to self-park helped maintain a low cost event and working with repeat vendors who already knew the facility was a key factor as well.

Some other key factors with Los Angeles non profit event planning is to generate your donations well in advance of your event via sponsorships, donations or guest list expansion.  Finally, keep staff to a minimum and garner as many volunteers as possible.
