The How Fundraising Really Works seminar combines the insights in our toolbox of planning models with the interdisciplinary research that informed Jason’s new book, The War for Fundraising Talent. Our goal is to present this cutting-edge fundraising seminar in eight to ten major locations in 2019.
The How Fundraising Really Works seminar affords participants a fast-paced, systems-level exploration of how effective fundraising really works and the myriad of reasons why many nonprofit fundraising strategies are designed to fail. How Fundraising Really Works is designed especially for smaller organizations that find today’s highly-competitive landscape difficult to navigate.
The How Fundraising Really Works seminar begins with a deconstruction of the current fundraising landscape that organizational leaders are challenged with every day. From here, we lift everyone’s spirits with an encouraging reconstruction of an effective development plan. Empowered with a new framework, we characterize the personalities who will find greatest success using this new framework. During the second half of the day, we will introduce a performance management tool and a campaign planning model designed to align expectations around critical measures of fundraising effectiveness. Implemented effectively, these models become the centerpiece of an organization's fundraising planning; a strategic coaching framework; and a bridge of communication between the development office, the executive suite and the boardroom.
Registration for the How Fundraising Really Works seminar is $200 (USD) per person. Participants receive six hours of CFRE-approved training, a lite breakfast, a box lunch, cardstock planning model cards, and a copy of The War for Fundraising Talent.
