"We promoted our POSH® Sale, New York city’s largest fashion fundraiser of the year with CharityHappenings.org. The response was fantastic. Though we advertised the event through some other major NYC media outlets, the CharityHappenings.org list delivered the highest return, by far. We are looking forward to working with them on our next event."
-Kim Rossi, Online Content Manager, Lighthouse International


"We promoted our Raising the Stakes benefit event through the CharityHappenings.org newsletter on two occasions. We had a wonderful response to both! The staff was wonderful, and provided us with the appropriate target audience for our event—we look forward to working with CharityHappenings.org again on another event!
-Elizabeth Lee, Development Coordinator,
Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, Inc. 

"We couldn't have asked for anything more from CharityHappenings.org!  By listing The American Red Cross in Greater New York's Cocktails for a Cause event on their website and e-mail, we were able to reach thousands of new potential donors to further our mission.  As a special events planner I was astounded at the quantity and quality of their contacts.  Partnering with CharityHappenings.org gave us the ability to increase the profile and awareness of our event like never before.  This service is an asset to a non-profits' event publicity for a modest fee with immense return.  We will definitely be using their website again!"
-Michelle Seligman Weinraub, Director, Special Events American Red Cross in Greater New York


“St. Jude Children's
Research  Hospital was thrilled to work with CharityHappenings.org in the marketing of our annual Design Cares benefit.  Our donors were excited to have access to the fabulous event photos so that they could better spread the word about our fundraising event, and it was great to know that other potential donors were able to learn so much about our mission. As an event marketer, we were impressed with the breadth and quality of the distribution channel the Charity Happenings newsletter provided as their audience is truly a "who's who" of the members of the New Yorksocial scene!

"The Cancer Research Institute’s recent Spring into Style event at Saks Fifth Avenue was a smashing success, due in large part to the media sponsorship we received from CharityHappenings.org.  By listing our event on the website, sending out a dedicated email to over 40,000 individuals and providing great post-event coverage, CharityHappenings.org helped the Cancer Research Institute bring in a sold-out crowd of over 300 people and raise more than $20,000.   We’re thrilled to be associated with a brand that is helping us bring the Institute’s important work to the forefront of the New York philanthropic community.  Thank you, CharityHappenings.org, for helping to make our event so successful!"
-Anita Schmidt, Event Coordinator, Cancer Research Institute

-Dr. Michael Ascher, Young Professionals Society for the Arts.

 
I have been an avid user of Charity Happenings for a few years. Ease of use and access to an array of charity events are just some of the highlights of the site. However, when I had my own charity event to promote, I soon learned of the site's other capabilities. Justin, the site's owner, worked with me last minute to send out a featured e-mail to reach more than 25,000 readers and draw attention to the upcoming charity event. Within an hour, I had numerous responses and more than 15 ticket sales. Another great feature of Charity Happenings is the effortlessness of posting events. Edits are approved in a timely manner, and the person posting can see how many have viewed the summary posting and who has delved into the detail page. Moving forward, my company will be utilizing Charityhappings.org to maximize viewership and therefore attendance at charity events. The Charity Happenings team is a pleasure to work with, and is a vital resource for anyone either interested in attending charity events or involved in the planning.
-Laureen Lipsky, The Aubrey Fund benefiting The Sloan Kettering Center for Pediatric Cancer Research

Traffic to our Web site's event pages really spiked--CharityHappenings.org was the #2 traffic source for the week--when your e-newsletter, The Circuit, featured our event as "The best event to meet your future spouse." Thank you, CharityHappenings.org, for helping to make our event such a success. The Cancer Research Institute Young Philanthropists will be going to Charity Happenings first to list all our future events."

That represents phenomenal growth in the number of highly engaged and very motivated young professionals committed to our cause.”
