Fundraising Essentials Bootcamp 2.0
Thu, October 19, 2017, 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM PDT
Fundraising Essentials Bootcamp 2.0 provides specific, strategic techniques to enhance your effectiveness as a fundraising professional. In this hands-on workshop, we dive deeper into topics most often cited by fundraisers as in need of development, but rarely covered at conferences or trainings: creating focus in a sea of work, and developing effective prospect strategies. The day will provide the specificity that is of value to newer development professionals, with the complex subject matter that will benefit advanced development professionals who seek to enhance their style and skills.
The first part of the day focuses on proven strategies for building discipline and focus into your work as you face competing demands for your time, as well as competing views of how your time is best spent.
A significant portion of the Bootcamp will be spent in both scenario discussions and interactive role-playing sessions. In a comfortable setting, role-playing and the discussion of specific, complex scenarios, and the development of probing questions are critical: they allow you to build confidence, see different perspectives prior to a donor visit, and expand your style and skill set. We will spend time with scenarios and role-play as tools for you to look at your institution differently, and as a strategy for developing best practices for donor visits. To provide further practical application to your work, attendees will be broken into cohort groups for higher education, healthcare, and nonprofit during parts of the discussion.
The day will end with a 30-minute networking reception (includes beer, wine, and light appetizers).
Space in the Bootcamp is limited in order to keep the number of attendees low to ensure focused and meaningful conversation. Reserve your spot today!
Lunch and networking reception are included!
