Our Gala Planning Services

Planning a fundraising gala can be a daunting task even for the most experienced of non profit directors. While its primary purpose is, of course, to raise money, galas carry the added responsibility of communicating your mission clearly, and entertaining and inspiring the donors who attend. You can trust the event planning professionals at Jodi Raphael Events to take the stress out of the planning process and help you plan a successful fundraising event that donors look forward to year after year.

We Know Gala Planning is Unique

A team with many years of experience planning some of the Boston area’s most prestigious galas, the planners at Jodi Raphael Events understand your unique need for creativity and inspiration along with communication and budgeting. We start by meeting with you to understand your organization’s mission, the needs of relevant stakeholders and what it is you hope to achieve. We then craft a proposal for your Board of Directors or your Fundraising Committee that details the theme, event design and coordination, marketing recommendations, the timeline and the budget. Once approved, we meet with you on a regular basis to establish a framework for communication and coordination of all the details.

It’s All In the Details

Theme development and venue selection, check-in coordination and program design, décor and speech writing; we bring a knowledgeable team of professionals and a curated list of vendors to every gala we plan. From our very first meeting, until the last person exits the event, you can count on the JRE team to execute every detail flawlessly, on time and on budget.
