Fundraising Strategies in Action
Raising Paddles offers a unique approach to providing educational sessions on fundraising strategies for your next gala or golf outing. This event is run just like a gala, starting with a cocktail hour with morning mimosas, a silent auction and entertainment, a delicious sit-down lunch. Then a mock fundraising program will exhibit the best practices in motion to replicate at YOUR next event. Along the way we will provide valuable sessions on topics such as donor development strategies, making the ask, and enhancing the guest experience. We will demonstrate a live auction and a paddle raise. Other innovative revenue enhancing fundraising strategies will help keep your event fresh each and every year.
The silent and live auction, along with raffles will be stocked with valuable prizes. You can win by using “play money” we hand out to you to make it fun and engaging. Many attendees will take prizes as valuable as $5,000 home to use at their next gala! Please see a list of our sponsors in a separate section, who will provide these prizes for you to win!
Come Join Us! A fun day of learning, a chance to win some amazing prizes, and a chance to network with other similar organizations as you strive to maximize fundraising at your next event!
Please check out the Agenda Page for more details on the schedule for the day.

About Raising Paddles
Raising Paddles was an inspiration derived from the loss of a loved one who was mission focused and love to help others in their time of need. At your event, you will also see a difference through our nationally renowned team of fundraising ambassadors. More than the traditional spotter, our team becomes ambassadors for your cause, and helps engage your guests from the moment they arrive at your event. Our goal is to make sure your guests leave with a memorable experience and with the intention of returning year after year and inviting their friends to come with.
