The purpose of the NMCADV Leadership Academy is to give an overview of some of the major nuts and bolts of running domestic violence intervention and prevention agencies for Executive Directors and senior management, especially those who are new to their positions. It will be held over the course of nine months through a series of six 1-day sessions on a variety of topics. Participants will have access to an archive of online readings and videos that will supplement the in-person workshops.
Session #5 (May 12th): Fundraising and Messaging
LaDonna Hopkins, former Vice President and Chief Development Officer for the United Way, will help us get comfortable with “the ask”, and offer fundraising strategies that provide precious community support and unrestricted funds for our organizations. We will review lessons from our two Message Matters conferences and spend some time developing effective messages that inspire rather than depress our community members.
10:00 - 12:30 Morning Session
12:30 - 1:00 Lunch (provided at venue)
1:00 - 3:30 Afternoon Session
3:30 - 4:00 Wrap Up and Closing
The specific venue is yet to be determined for this session, but will be published here and sent to participants when confirmed.
Participants can either pay a drop-in (single session) fee of $45. Series passes are no longer available for the remaining sessions. This includes lunch and light snacks each day.
