Share Your Case for Support: Translating Your Strategic Plan into Donor Values

Event Details

Doug Diefenbach, Vice President of Campaign Strategy and Communications, Advocate Charitable Foundation

 

You understand what you raise money for. You understand the basics of donor motivation. But to break through and bridge the two, you have to convey your strategic objectives in terms that will be valued by your constituents—that is, in terms of their own personal values and experiences, interests, and hopes. Ranging from the strategic to the highly practical, this workshop in “case craft” is appropriate for development professionals, executive directors, board members—or anyone facing the challenge of representing your organization and its vision to your constituents. Using best practices, discussion, and “tales from the front,” Part I prepares you to translate your strategic plan into donor benefits. Then stay on for Part II—a hands-on writing laboratory and focus group where you will begin to craft a new case for your institution, receiving instant expert feedback on your efforts. Discover and practice the rational, stepwise process for breaking down your organization’s visions and programs to the underlying values they represent—values your constituents will recognize readily and support generously.


Part I: 9:00 am to Noon
Part II: 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
You can choose to register for either part or the whole day. We highly recommend you only attend Part II if you have completed Part I on this day or at a previous workshop. Due to limited time, the instructor will not review the Part I concepts in the afternoon. If you're staying for the whole day, lunch will be provided during the two sessions
