Events by Inspire


Inspire Engagement

Events by Inspire specializes in full-service nonprofit-focused event planning and management. From the creation of a fresh event to taking an existing event to a new level, EBI has the experience, dedication and creativity to produce success.

We work hand-in-hand with our clients' development office and committee handling all the day-to-day event related tasks. Because of our full-service approach, we typically begin meeting with clients 8 to 16 months prior to event day. When EBI comes on board, clients suddenly have more time to complete regular job tasks and more importantly raise the funds their organization depends on to fulfill their mission.

What We do

This is a general overview of our scope of work. Each event and nonprofit need is unique:

  • Securing and managing venues, caterers, vendors and entertainment
  • Engaging and overseeing committees, event chairs, board members, volunteers and program team
  • Creating budgets, bid numbers, forms, processes and planning timelines
  • Drafting copy for invitations, committee letters, press releases, social media outreach, sponsorship packets, scripts, programs and signage
  • Coordinating décor, graphics and logistics
  • Onsite event-day management including an experienced team of event professionals to manage the most important elements of your event

What we Don't Do

We do it all. This is why it is actually easier to explain what we don't do.

We don't secure sponsorships, donations or volunteers. We will, however, prepare the sponsorship packet that you can use to secure the sponsorship. We will determine exactly how many volunteers you need, what tasks they will need to perform, detail those responsibilities as well as communicate with them and manage them once they are secured. When it comes to donations, we will prepare the letter and form as well as once items are secured handle all the signage, prep and checkout procedures around the auctioning or raffling the items.

Why do we do it this way?

Bottom line, we want donors and volunteers to build long-term relationships with our clients, not with us.
