In this session:
Does Your Board Really Understand Fundraising Success? Nonprofits try lots of things when it comes to fundraising: Events, auctions, 10K's, grants, social media, house parties, major gifts, corporate giving, and the seemingly chronic "anything and everything we can" plan. Are you tired of trying so hard at the same old game? Learn what our region's most effective fundraising organizations know, prioritize, and evaluate as they create meaningful fundraising plans to unify leaders and fuel compelling causes.
Participants will learn:
- How to evaluate your organization's risk-exposure regarding fundraising channels
- How to define healthy fundraising goals
- The essential elements of a fundraising plan (including evaluative framework and metrics)
Trainer: Peter Drury is Adjunct Professor at Seattle University (Master of Nonprofit Leadership Program) and Director, Corporate & Foundation Relations at Seattle Children’s Hospital and Research Foundation. He has spoken with high acclaim at national and regional conferences regarding best practices for Boards, Executives, and Major Gifts Officers.
