Upcoming: Bringing Passion Into Your Donor Conversations

Wednesday, January 17, 12:30-1:30pm EST

As grant funding becomes more difficult to obtain, the nonprofit organizations need to embolden their efforts to strengthen relationships with funders. Participants will look at the nuts and bolts of telling a passionate and compelling story about their organization. By the end of the webinar, attendees will be enabled to connect the dots for funders/donors/volunteers while creating a richness and meaning for the organization’s mission.

 This workshop is for:

  • Established mid-size nonprofits who have limited development staff
  • Executive directors with minimal time for funder relationships
  • Engaged board members seeking to become more involved with funders
