Description


Fourth Friday Fundraising

Fund development is key to the success of every non-profit, yet, best practices and techniques are rarely discussed. The thought that organizations are chasing the same dollars creates a sense of competition and limited discussion related to the tools of the trade.

The Life Remodeled team, led by Chris Lambert, CEO + Founder, is looking to flip the script and shatter some fundraising myths by hosting an enlightening lunch and learn sessions on what it takes to achieve high caliber and effective fund development.

Join LR and hundreds of representatives from non-profits throughout the greater metro-Detroit area on the fourth Friday of the month from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Durfee Innovation Society to learn from some of the major players in the philanthropy world-- funders, donors, volunteers and non-profit staff, who are looking for insight into creating a strong development strategy.

Note: Each session can stand alone; therefore, those interested can purchase tickets for as many or few sessions as they would like.

About Chris Lambert, CEO + Founder of Life Remodeled

In 2011, I founded the nonprofit Life Remodeled. Although I'd never received an ounce of fundraising training, I quickly discovered that my main responsibilities would revolve around donations. At first I absolutely despised raising money, which only made it more challenging.

Since 2014, Life Remodeled has stewarded more than $26M in cash, labor and materials, and more than 55,000 volunteers from business, community and faith-based organizations to set the groundwork for sustainable change in four Detroit neighborhoods.

Recently, I've taken the study of fund development more seriously: including a six month fellowship with an international nonprofit accelerator, coursework at Indiana University's School of Philanthropy, and a yearlong fundraising program at Harvard.

Life Remodeled’s long-term vision is to develop and share the most community driven, collaborative, impactful and sustainable models for urban neighborhood revitalization. Sharing is a big part of who we are, and I'm excited to help you learn the beauty of fundraising more quickly than I did.
