Fundraisers

MJM Events Chicago specializes in helping nonprofits raise funds from individuals, corporations and foundations. By providing high quality development services with proven results, we have helped to grow small organizations into larger, well-established organizations by working to strengthen development efforts from the ground up. No organization is the same. We work with each of our clients to personally customize and design a development plan that will meet their needs and maximize their funding streams. Our clients can keep their overhead costs down, learn the intricacies of development and fundraising while their organizations benefit from the rewards. With fundraising being the number one goal, we negotiate vendor contracts and get the best possible price for our clients. To offset costs, we provide a team of ambitious and loyal volunteers that have worked with us with for many years.
