Why a Special Appeal Video Is Always Worth the Investment

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Each year, auction chairs ask, “Do we really need a new video for our appeal?” The answer is yes! Consider this example: Have you ever watched a movie for the second time? Was it as exciting and moving when you knew what to expect? Of course not; you already knew the ending. The same idea applies to your special appeal video. Each year, you need a fresh, unheard story to showcase the work of your great organization. This allows you to not only keep your guest engaged on event night, but to celebrate the accomplishments of your nonprofit’s mission. Ready? Let’s go raise some money!
