Laurie Earp, Ph.D. (hc)
Earp Events & Fundraising Founder
For more than twenty four years, Laurie Earp & her dynamic team have partnered with non-profit and labor organizations, public sector agencies and progressive candidates to more fully define their goals (tangible and intangible), messaging, identify potential donors, so that success is achieved on all levels.
Our straightforward approach has resulted in raising millions of dollars. We recognized there is no cookie-cutter approach to our clients' needs, and a unique plan is crafted for and with each client to maximize the bottom line.
In addition to serving as the Finance Director/Fundraiser for candidates and ballot issues, we serve clients in producing Annual, Banner-Year or Grand-Opening (fundraising) events, golf tournaments, conferences, and community festivals.
We are pleased to support our clients in all ways possible, including:
- Finance Committee Development & Stewardship
- Donor List Development & Expansion
- Board Development and Training
- Logo, Tagline and Messaging
- Sponsorship Benefit Packages
- Outreach & Publicity
- Event Logistics from Start to Finish
In addition to her on-hands event planning & fundraising work, Laurie has helped to inspire a new generation of fundraising event planners. She has done this through mentoring as well as participating in Conferences, serving as a Guest Lecturer at Universities throughout the Bay Area, and as a standing faculty member for the last eight years at San Francisco State University’s Non-Profit Management Department and most recently in their Conference & Meeting Planning Department. Laurie also writes articles on fundraising and served as Guest Editor for the Grassroots Fundraising Journal’s “Special Events” Issue.
