Writing Your Fundraising Plan for 2020

About this Event

Writing your 2020 Fundraising Plan: A planning discussion with fundraising industry leader, Chris Cloud. In this interactive session, Chris will map out ingredients and process to plan a 2020 master fundraising calendar, set productivity goals, and explore diagnostic techniques to detect weak spots and enhance fundraising productivity. Participants are encouraged to consider a self-assessment of their own fundraising, imagine goals for 2020, and they are encouraged to offer practical insights from their fundraising experience about what works in the field.
