nonprofit event calendar thumbnailIf you're wondering what events other nonprofits are holding throughout the year, this calendar can help you out. It answers questions like:

  • When are nonprofits holding member meetings?
  • When does a board typically get together?
  • When are nonprofits looking for new volunteers?

I created this calendar by analyzing over 1,000,000 events Wild Apricot's 17,000+ customers created in the last three years.

Below you'll find an easy-view calendar of the findings.

The Ultimate Nonprofit Event Calendar:

  • Spring is the busiest time of year for member events, with March being the busiest month overall
  • Winter is the biggest time of year for board meetings and planning sessions, as well as donation collections
  • Most hiring/recruiting happens in the spring, or back to school season
