    Many nonprofit organizations get stuck focusing on acquiring donors and never expand their technique to retaining or upgrading. The first gift is the most expensive gift you will ever get, and most donors use their first gift to a nonprofit organization as a test.


    Join this webinar to explore strategies for acquiring donors, retaining your donors, and upgrading their gifts.


    Appropriate for current and incoming board members and nonprofit professionals.

    Poverty is a complex social, economic and political issue that a "one-size-fits-all" approach fails to resolve. Investing the time to explore the research, listen to stories of those living in poverty, and discover new ways of thinking about policies and systems will create better outcomes.

     

    Bridges out of Poverty Framework aims to achieve the following:

    • Help you identify how your work can have a significant and lasting impact on addressing poverty.  
    • Learn how to use policies and systems to create better outcomes instead of barriers to moving out of poverty.
    • Provide you with a family of concepts designed to help employers, communities, policy-makers, social service agencies, and individuals attend to poverty in a comprehensive way.

    This is an abridged overview of the Bridges Out of Poverty model and framework. Please click here if you'd like more information on comprehensive training  opportunities.
