Greg Warner is CEO and Founder of MarketSmart, a revolutionary marketing software and services firm that helps nonprofits raise more for less. In 2012 Greg coined the phrase “Engagement Fundraising” to encapsulate his breakthrough fundraising formula for achieving extraordinary results. Using their own innovative strategies and technologies, MarketSmart helps fundraisers around the world zero in on the donors most ready to support their organizations and institutions with major and legacy gifts.

Red Bull Theater uses menus for major gifts. Red Bull Theater in New York City really got it right when they developed an outstanding themed event that included a menu to make it easy for their major donors to support their passion for great plays.
Want to help get a new play going?  Choose the Slow Cooker for $500.  Or, underwrite an entire play for $100,000!
Here are two other menus:
Barakat seeks to provide exemplary basic education in Afghanistan and Pakistan, particularly for girls and women.  Here’s their menu.
Rise Recovery helps teens, young adults, and their families overcome the effects of mind-changing chemicals (drugs) while assisting the community through partnerships in education and prevention. Here’s their menu.
The MarketSmart take on menus:  Make it easy for your supporters to give, show ’em how their money will be invested… and they’ll give more.
