Two people I thoroughly admire are speaking together on this topic next week. Don’t miss the serious(ly) helpful dialogue, Nonprofit 911: The Fundraiser and The Philanthropist Talk About the Art of Exponential Fundraising. It’s a conversation between nationally recognized fundraiser Jennifer McCrea and active philanthropist and board member Jeff Walker. Hear directly from the people involved how fundraising really works (hint: it’s about relationships) and how to transform your organization.
Using examples from their years of working together, they will discuss how to:
* Motivate your board to engage in fundraising
* Identify and recruit donors and partners to make your organization stronger, not drained of resources
* Make the perfect ask by telling a great story
* Turn shared values into action
This webinar will root you in fundraising best practices, core fundamentals and emerging trends, and then introduce you to strategies and techniques drawn from the presenters’ extensive experience to build co-creative partnerships, an abundant pipeline of resources and new fundraising opportunities with donors at all levels.
Be sure to check out Jennifer’s Exponential Fundraising blog, and read her interview with Jeff. Definitely the Encyclopedia Brown post, the Case of the Missing Answer.
