Special Events

We believe in the value of events as opportunities for you to meet supporters and increase revenues, as well as build your visibility among key constituencies. Our team is highly skilled at strategizing a mixture of events including intimate small events such as VIP dinners that give you the opportunity to speak with high value prospects; mid-sized publicity events including press conferences or roundtable discussions, geared at visibility; and large scale fundraising events such as galas that are pointedly aimed at raising revenues.
For all events, we develop a theme and manage logistics from start to finish, with consideration to your objectives and budget. Our team is dedicated to building a unique, tailored experience that is memorable for guests while profitable for you.
Let’s create an event your supporters will never forget.

SOS SAHEL 40th Anniversary Celebration

We helped SOS SAHEL set up a number of celebratory events in Senegal, culminating in an Africa Day celebration in May 2017:
• An intimate VIP dinner in Dakar at the Residence of the Consul of France, where we presented SOS SAHEL to a select group of corporate CEOs based in Dakar, from which we were able to secure sponsors for the May fundraising gala.
• Logistics and communications leading up to the Africa Day celebration including coordination with a PR agency
• A gala on May 24th 2017 at the Pullman Teranga Hotel in Dakar for a major fundraising campaign kickoff, attended by more than 250 guests. The gala was sponsored by President Abdou Diouf and featured a number of Senegalese artists and visionaries. SOS SAHEL’s executives highlighted the success of the Food Security and Nutrition Initiative 2025, which launched in 2016.
• A workshop for the International Advisory Board, conducted by three field experts including a UN ambassador, which encouraged reflection and debate on the issues of nutrition, sustainable energy and agroforestry.
Results:
• SOS SAHEL’s first charity gala in Africa was a success that increased visibility of the organization via the press and event sponsors.
• The organization’s International Advisory Council became more active in programming.

Lega del Filo d’Oro Case Study

In 2016, Lega del Filo d’Oro launched Friends of Lega del Filo d’Oro in the United States. In the spirit of its founder, its purpose is to embrace the friendship between Italy and the United States and to invite new friends to join their community.
Funds raised will support the second phase of the ambitious new National Centre complex, which will increase the services offered and expand the current center’s capacity so even more individuals can benefit from Lega del Filo d’Oro’s excellent care.
PROJECT
Lega del Filo d’Oro has a robust fundraising program in place in Italy, but has never fundraised outside of its borders. To explore the viability of such an endeavor in the American market, Faircom New York conducted a feasibility study to define institutional and individual giving prospects and created a unique positioning statement and fundraising strategy for Lega del Filo d’Oro.
In addition, while Lega del Filo d’Oro has an established and recognized brand identity in Italy, they lacked informational materials in English. As a first step, Faircom New York created an English institutional brochure, providing an overview of LFO’s services and impact. This encompassed in-house translation of the original Italian copy, copywriting, design and production.
In addition, an English-language website targeted at an American audience is underway, to compliment Lega del Filo d’Oro’s existing Italian web presence.
RESULTS
As part of the strategic implementation, representatives of Lega del Filo d’Oro visited New York and Washington, DC to open relationships with interested stakeholders. This has laid the groundwork for further actions in the coming months, including an upcoming trip in October and cultivation events.
STAY TUNED!
Stay tuned for more updates on this client. We will be unveiling the American audience website this summer. We are excited that Lega del Filo d’Oro is the charity partner of Panorama d’Italia, a Panorama newsmagazine roadshow that will be coming to the United States for the first time in the fall. A week of events are planned for the roadshow, including a gala benefitting Lega del Filo d’Oro.
In addition, Faircom New York will be creating additional materials to supplement the brochure, further expanding Lega del Filo d’Oro’s arsenal of English-language communications materials.
