Resource Development & Fundraising 101: Building Relationships and
Moving People to Act [Binghamton]
Presented by Valerie Venezia, VP of Membership & Marketing; NYCON
Getting our message straight, connecting it to the right people and getting them to act on our nonprofit’s behalf (give money, time, attend a function, etc.) has becoming increasingly more difficult – yet more important than ever. In order for the “new donor” to start giving it’s not enough for them to know you “do good work.” They have to feel like they know your organization’s “personality,” and that they have a real relationship with you. Relationships like this can take a lot of time and attention to build and maintain and once in a while they require some non-traditional communication methods (and messages.) In this workshop w will give you an overview of what every nonprofit can do to define an impactful message, connect it to the right folks and begin to build an active relationship that benefits both parties. Some tips and tools will be shared on ways nonprofits can cultivate relationships online (including what websites & tools might be best to use) that turn into dollars in the real world.
