This workshop has been postponed to June 4.

We all know that fundraising is probably not why you do this work. You are doing this work to help people. But fundraising is often the necessary means to that end. So how do you fundraise effectively to get the money that you need without losing your passion? This workshop will offer important tenets to maximize your fundraising, including:

  • Be efficient: We will analyze different styles of fundraising and find the ones that best fit your organization so you can fundraise as efficiently as possible.
  • Use every asset: Identify the strengths of your people and organization so that you can capitalize on the assets you already have before you invest in new fundraising projects or consultants.
  • Invest well: Your time is valuable and fundraising can take a lot of it. How do you decide where to most efficiently use your energy? We’ll discuss how to effectively invest your time for the best fundraising outcomes so that it’s not detracting from the day-to-day work that your organization does.
  • Shift your framing: Fundraising is not begging or bothering your donors, even if it feels that way sometimes. It is a chance to share your passion, and encourage others to be part of something exciting and deeply meaningful. Learn how to effectively invite donors to join you in supporting your critical work without feeling like a nuisance.
  • Target it: What makes you and your organization unique? What is this person passionate about and where does that overlap with your organization? We’ll talk about how to target the right invitation to the right person.

Learn how to fund the work you are passionate about, without losing your passion!
