2018 Earth Day Non-Event Fact Sheet

What is a non-event fundraiser?

A non-event fundraiser is a program that follows the same steps as an actual fundraising event (Gala, Auction, etc) except there is no actual live event. The concept is that instead of spending money on attending an event (ticket for dinner, formal dress, baby sitter, and gas) the participant donates the savings to the organization.  This event will serve as the Friends of Maryland State Parks annual fundraising program.

When?
