Above the Clouds: Practical tips to rise above in your fundraising this fall.
Mediocrity is leaving momentum to the status quo – the charity sector creates strategy silo’s in annual, major, planned giving when EVERY charity needs to have integrated fundraising strategy in 2018. Donors have been convinced that philanthropy is just for philanthropists, the wealthy. When we need to show ALL our donors how they can support us in a variety of ways. Together we will rise above – and discuss not just the trends but also the threats (like crowdfunding) and opportunity (demographic change) in the charity landscape of today and tomorrow. Resources will be shared to help you engage funders, donors and their advisors. You will leave not just feeling hopeful but with actual action items you can put to work before the end of 2018 to raise more right away and how to create a brighter funding future for the important work you do in 2019 and beyond.
