This session is an introduction to the Benevon fundraising model, a tested system for identifying and cultivating individual donors who love your organization's mission—and who will give for operations, capital, and endowment even during challenging economic times. Benevon founder Terry Axelrod will provide an overview of Benevon's mission-driven system for identifying, cultivating, and engaging individual donors--a system that several Meyer grantees have used successfully. Even for organizations that choose not to work with Benevon, the session will emphasize principles of stewardship and engagement that can help any organization strengthen its individual giving program.

We strongly suggest that you register at least two people from your organization-—preferably the executive director and key fundraising staff or board members. Participation is limited to executive directors of current Meyer Foundation grantees (organizations that have received grants since January 2009). Seating is limited, and preference will be given to organizations that register teams that include a board member.
