Description

Major Gifts and Campaigns!

Are you an executive director, development director, or volunteer board leader who is:

  • Experienced in raising funds but facing new challenges?
  • Planning a capital campaign?
  • Seeking additional tools and models for managing and developing financial resources for your organization and its work?
  • Relatively new to your leadership fundraising role?
  • Facing major changes or challenges in regards to financial resources?
  • Seeking to expand your personal peer network?

You are invited. Please join us for a program designed to kick start your major gift and campaign work – regardless of where you are starting from.

What. 3 half-day long work/training sessions IN BILLINGS + 2 customized webinars + 6 one-on-one coaching sessions. Sessions to be scheduled based on participants’ schedules. The series is designed for only 10-14 nonprofits to ensure personalized focus.

Why. Major gifts and successful campaign drives are critical to the future of many nonprofits. But cookie cutter models don’t often fit. This series is designed to help you discover the right combination of strategy and tools that fit your resources and to enable you to become more successful at raising major and campaign gifts.

Presenters. #1) Kevin Johnson’s first capital campaign was in 1981 where he had the opportunity to learn from one of nation’s masters. The world of major and campaign fundraising continues to evolve and Kevin has played a vital role in more than a hundred projects and initiatives involving education, health, conservation, art, community, and social causes throughout the U.S. and Canada. These projects attracted more than $137 million in local and national support, and kick-started or complemented additional goals that exceeded $1.67 billion. He has also written a well-received book for the nonprofit sector published by Jossey-Bass/Wiley and endorsed by Bill Gates, Sr. Presenter #2) Peggy M. Owens, CFRE, is a trainer, consultant and coach for organizations with an emphasis on fundraising, board development, strategic planning and meeting facilitation. She has more than 30 years of experience and a proven record of success in nonprofit consulting, administration and fund development. She is the founding board chair of the Montana Nonprofit Association. She received her certification as a fundraising executive in 2004.

When & Where. The program will begin Sept. 14th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sessions will continue over a seven month period through the spring. It’s long enough to make real progress, short enough to fit into your schedule. We’ll focus on work you want and need to do, not “make work” ideas.

Logistics & Format. At the first meeting, we will schedule call dates with you. The format of the sessions and webinars will vary and include a combination of discussion of issues at hand, review of relevant examples or cases, in-depth brainstorming on an individual challenge, case studies with specific donors, and presentation.

Cost. The cost is less than attending a single out of state conference; the value far greater. The cost of the series using Early Bird pricing is a monthly fee of $225/month over the seven month period for a total of $1,575. After July 2, the cost will be a discounted price of $255/mo., total, $1,785; after July 31, full price, $325/mo., total, $2,275. Course fees may be paid in installments, all at once, by check, credit card or PayPal. For those on fiscal year budgets, deferred payment options are available. The enrollment deposit represents the deposit and first monthly fee. 



FAQs
What's the refund policy?
To maximize the amount of personalized interaction, the number of program participants will be limited. Prospective participants may be turned away because the program is full or, if a concern to an already enrolled participant, a perceived competitor. As a result, participating organization agrees to pay the full amount of the program tuition. Extenuating circumstances, as judged by the Program Instructor, will be the only reason this commitment will be released. Non-attendance at sessions will not be a cause for refunds. Program Participant agrees to pay program fees in a timely manner. If the participant’s job status changes (e.g., new job, promotion, etc.) the organization may substitute a representative with program instructor permission.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No printed ticket needed.


Where was that picture taken?
The picture on the event page is Monture Creek at the edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The creek was originally named after the Newfoundland dog that accompanied Lewis & Clark on their expedition named Seaman. But, for more than 100 years, map makers thought the creek was given the name of "Scannon's Creek" by Lewis & Clark. No one seemed to know anything about "Scannon" until 1987 when a researcher figured out the name was simply a bad translation of bad handwriting in the the expedition journals. It was supposed to be Seaman's Creek. There is a plaque commemorating Seaman not far from where the creek meets the Blackfoot River. Now about the name: Since much of the journal used phonetic spelling, it's possible the name wasn't Seaman, but the name Simon pronounced in French. But let's stick to Seaman.
