Do you need to get started - or get strategic?
Come learn how to attract, retain, and nurture donors to build lasting, and sustainable, relationships and become less reliant on events and/or use events more efficiently. It would also be beneficial to register one or two key staff, board members or volunteers who are willing to help build your giving program.

As a small grassroots nonprofit, you must be efficient with your precious time. Come learn how to focus on the WIN (What's Important Now). Doing the same thing and getting the same outcome is not maintaining but falling behind. Nonprofits need to be strategic, efficient, and build better relationships with donors to fulfill their missions.

This workshop will help explore how to design a fundraising strategy and plan, how to build your fundraising tools, use them efficiently and develop the elements of written request letters. Learn what the difference is between a letter to an individual, a corporation, or foundation. Panelists will discuss the challenges facing grassroots organizations, their favorite strategies to engage donors, where they have found success and lessons they have learned.
