"The first production for me in San Jose was the creation
of San Jose Rep, which now is housed in the beautiful
new state-of-the-art theatre building on Plaza de San
Antonio. It was the right time for a professional theatre."

James P. Reber

Fundraising Consulting & Special Event Producing Services
Successful Fundraising & Producing for over 30 Years

Special Event Planner & Producer

James P. Reber has produced over 200 different kinds of fundraising events and special events and consulted on many more.

Mr. Reber has a 30+ year track record of success in creating and launching new events that become established annual fundraisers, transforming modestly successful events or failing events into guaranteed annual fundraisers on a much larger scale, and producing precision-perfect special events that accomplish their goals and objectives and do so with enviable excellence.

Many nonprofit organizations that produce events are unaware of the value of having an experienced professional involved.

Whether planning and producing the event, or simply being a consultant giving advice, Mr. Reber states "the difference in having my advice or involvement is often thousands of dollars more for the group. The real secret is that fundraising events done right don't drain everyone's energy - but they can and do make more money."
