    Frequently Asked Questions


    Will this template make our fundraising event a success?

    The success of your event depends on many factors. One of those factors is how effective your promotion efforts are. Writing and publishing a press release is, in many ways, the first step of your promotional efforts. The content of the release is going to set the stage for what is going to follow, is going to set expectations, and make people want to join your event. However, a press release by itself can’t make your fundraiser a success.


    Can I promote this press release to media outlets?

    In general, everything that you publish on your website that’s newsworthy can be promoted to media and news outlets. Your fundraising event is exactly the same. You can, and you have to promote it to as many people as possible, through media outlets, niche sites, social media, and people with influence within your niche.


    Does this template have all the basic elements of a nonprofit press release?

    This template comes in a standard format and contains all the information needed for your fundraising event. However, you can edit this sample press release as you see fit and make any adjustments you consider to be relevant so that the messaging and tone are closer to what your target audience expects to see.


    I have other needs for my nonprofit — where can I find more press releases like this one?

    We’ve created an extended library of press and news releases for startups, enterprises, B2B and B2C companies, as well as for artists and sports teams. You can find them all in our library of templates. Choose the ones that you need, download them, and start using them for your organization.
