  • 5. Non-Profit OrganizationsWhether planning a reception, art show, wine tasting, gala, awards dinner, golf outing or other types of events, thegoal of a non-profit organization is to raise money while keeping expenditures to a minimum.To help increase revenue, non-profits could look at themselves as a corporation, where each year sales and profits areexpected to increase in order to satisfy the stockholders and owners. For many non-profit organizations the moneys raisedand the number of attendees are stagnant, while the cost of producing events go up at an average of 3% to compensate forsalary and benefit increases, rising product costs and fuel costs from their vendors. Revenues and attendance should alsoincrease.To accomplish this, ADH Meetings & Events has developed a database that can track historical information which in turn canbe used to increase attendance and income. Furthermore, with ADH’s buying power and strong vendor relationships, we areable to keep costs down and increase profits.At ADH we are experts in finding creative ways to increase the bottom line without escalating expenditures and keeping inmind the ultimate goal of the fund raising effort.Non-profits affect many people’s lives.
