People You Should Know: Holly Alexander, eventoozi Founder / Official Datekeeper of Fundraising Events


by Karen Perry-Weinstat

How many times has it happened? Your nonprofit puts together a spectacular event only to find out there’s another fundraiser set for the same day, in the same area, targeted to a similar audience. The fundraising landscape is crowded with worthy causes — all competing for donations, visibility and, increasingly, for calendar space. A scheduling conflict that forces two charitable events to vie against one another for guests, revenue, and resources can spell disaster for both organizations.  And that’s a waste of time, effort, and money.

Enter Holly Alexander and her new service As a nonprofit consultant, Holly saw the need for one centralized calendar to which all nonprofits could refer before selecting an event date. Once a conflict-free date is chosen, organizations can digitally “save the date” by listing their event, as well as search for the high-quality service providers they need to host a successful fundraiser. Holly’s idea is now a reality in eventoozi, an online searchable, geo-targeted database for all nonprofit events nationwide – from 5K community runs to 500-guest galas.

eventoozi is free to any registered 501(c)(3). In fact, it’s better than free. To prove their commitment to the nonprofit sector, 10% of eventoozi’s annual profits will be allocated to the eventoozi Dividend Fund.  Each year, any organization registered with eventoozi is eligible to apply for a grant.

So check out eventoozi and register your organization’s events. THIS is why you should know Holly Alexander.
