How can I achieve my ambitious nonprofit fundraising goal in 60 days?

I have two months to raise $6000 for an educational animal facility in southern Ontario. I need tips on how I can possibly achieve this goal on a crowdsourcing site. I've succeeded at raising $1000 in the past, but that's the limit of my experience with fundraising. My nonprofit is new and we don't yet have an established presence or an established donor base. Should I look for corporate sponsors? If so, what would that meeting look like and who might be sympathetic to my cause? How do I even make the initial approach? [more inside]

I'm heading up a program at the local humane society that's very similar to something like this. Or this. Or even this.

How much should I charge to MC a gala fundraising dinner?

I've been invited to emcee a gala dinner for a nonprofit. They are paying me for my talents, but I don't have anything other than random guesses about how much to charge, and their initial offer was basically "money is no object," which actually make it harder for me. Are there any resources out there that can help me narrow down a range to work from?
