New York Council of Nonprofits – Fundraising Breakfast Roundtables
A Three Part Series of Interactive Discussions on Building Your Major Donor Platform For Mid-Hudson Valley Nonprofits
various dates, see below
NYCON is pleased to bring a series of three exciting, interactive discussions on fundraising to Mid-Hudson Valley nonprofits this spring. NYCON staff expert Audrey Grifel, with 25+ years of practical experience working with nonprofits on fundraising and donor management, will be facilitating these exciting discussions with our special guest speaker, philanthropist Nick Preddice. Mr. Preddice will give you a rare glimpse into the world of a major donor – sharing his expertise and advice on:
- How to attract the right board members – and ask the right questions when fundraising
- How to communicate a message that resonates with major donors
- How to understand the behavioral thinking that underlies the decision to give
- The ten most important keys to building a strong major donor base – including how to build planned giving into your fundraising
Part I: Attracting and Resonating with Donors: A Personal Perspective
March 20th, 2014 8:00am to 9:30am
Location: The Theatre at West Shore Station, 27 South Water Street, Newburgh NY 12550
At age 35, Nick Preddice was already on a journey of philanthropic endeavors, and encouraging others to embrace that path. Unique in his thinking, Nick will share with you the ways to reach and resonate with people like him, and to also gain their help in reaching other like-minded, but untapped associates. Attendees will learn what is too often lacking in outreach to prospective donors: the questions. “The cause is well explained, but they go away knowing nothing about who I am, what I value and what moves me emotionally.” says Nick. He asks his audience to consider how they themselves think about money. How are these thoughts coming through to the prospective donor? Is there a disconnect in communication, and what approach would create a better alignment of cause and personal fulfillment?
Takeaways: The skills and questions that will allow you to tap into the way prospects at various ages think about their money and align their approach accordingly.
