Parenting With Dignity is a fundraising opportunity for you

Mac's Parenting With Dignity presentation is a fundraising opportunityIf marketed properly, you can recover the cost of Mac's fee and travel expenses - or raise additional funds for other projects. There is a powerful argument against staging a free event. The word "FREE" typically denotes low value. Even if you choose to give away every seat, don't miss an opportunity to emphasize that your special event has value - expectations will be heightened.

Here's some ideas how you can promote your event
  • First and foremost, print tickets for the event showing a $20.00 cost.

  • Print (or stamp) some of your tickets with 1/2 OFF

  • Ticket ExampleSee an example (click here) of a ticket used by a creative organization who provided scholarships from an "anonymous benefactor".

One of the other reasons that we encourage you to print tickets is that most organizations collect the names and email addresses of people who attend an event to be able to contact them about future events and fundraisers. Also, this is the best way of automatically registering people for your door prizes.
