Key Elements for Building an Intentional Fundraising Program (Partner Online Series)

Sept. 10 + 12, 2019, 3pm-4:30pm ET


This event is offered in partnership with Washington Nonprofits and The Ostara Group

Building a strong and intentional fundraising program is hard work. It can bring great joy and great frustration if you are the one leading this effort. Start simple with the key elements that matter most. We will spend our time together making an action plan that builds upon your successes. Leave with a renewed enthusiasm for how you are going to achieve great fundraising success!

Both sessions take place from 3pm-4:30pm ET.

September 10 - Part 1

  • Vision: Donors give to organizations that have a sound vision of where they are going. We will clarify your organization's vision and the impact you want to have in your community. 
  • Case Statement: Your story and the story of your organization are critical to your fundraising success. We will hone and practice stories important to your organization.
September 12 - Part 2
  • Board Engagement: The board is critical to achieving your vision and telling your story. Leave with a plan to engage your board effectively in fundraising. 
  • Intentional Fundraising: There are many sources for fundraising: individuals, foundations, corporations, and government. Prioritize your fundraising audiences and develop intentional strategies to reach them.

Intended Audience: Executive Directors, Development Directors and Staff, anyone involved with fundraising planning for their organization, including Board Members.
