Growing from the Inside Out: Effectively Engaging and Cultivating Existing Donors & Volunteers

Classroom | San Francisco, CA
Take away successful cultivation strategies from your peers.
In the quest for identifying new sources of support, or appealing to institutional donors, sometimes we miss opportunities to further engage those closest to us who may be best positioned to advance our work. Building meaningful relationships with our donors and volunteers, based on shared values and visions for the future, seems like it should naturally lead to increasingly larger gifts of time and resources, but even the best relationships require energy and effort. This is true for organizations of all kinds, but educational organizations are unique in their access to a network of stakeholders who might be re-engaged if approached in the right way. How do we invite existing donors to get more involved in our work? What is the most effective way of inviting volunteers to also support our work financially? And how should educational organizations go about activating alumni and other types of stakeholders? Join us and be inspired by the creative strategies this panel of local educational organizations will share about how to develop opportunities that resonate for a variety of stakeholders.
