Co-sponsored with Development Executives Roundtable (DER).
Most organizations have major gifts officers to bring home the big checks, leaving us scrambling to get those smaller donations - from donors who are drowning in emails and social media “noise.” Do we try to get louder? Since this forum is about busting fundraising anxiety, our speaker is going to challenge us to bust out of the mindset that fundraising is a zero sum game, that we are all competing for the same dollars. We will brainstorm together collaborative models to maximize donations, increase donor engagement, and perhaps come away with a project that we will embark on together for the mutual benefit of participating organizations. How's that for a reframing of what our work is about?
Please register by Friday, February 26th.
