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 II: April 24th, 2014 8:00am to 9:30am
Motivations for Giving Across Generations
Being able to tap into people’s attitudes, thinking and what they are actually inclined to do is essential in communicating with potential major donors. Money is the goal in fundraising. However, for donors, money is the means to living their purpose and experiencing satisfaction and joy.Nick offers great insight about being able to tap into people’s attitudes, thinking and what they are actually inclined to do. In this discussion, we’ll address the generational attitude that says that giving is something only older people do. You will hear stories of young, successful people who, when asked, were found to be very aware of the sense of fulfillment, gratitude and happiness that comes with giving.
Takeaway: An understanding of the behavioral thinking that underlies the decision to give.
