Accountability

Whether in small groups or through a scheduled one on on call with one of our consultants though the center, we will help provide clarity and direction to help you and your organization work through the hurdles holding you back.

Focus

With so many demands on non-profit leaders, working with our consultants ensures quality time is spent on key actions that teach and nurture generosity among leadership and constituents.

Tools

Rather than create everything you use from scratch, access tools that are working in other contexts. These tools will give you confidence that you, your own volunteers and board are working through best practices.

Plans

Whether last year was successful or not, updating your annual stewardship plan or your strategic goals keeps your organization moving forward. Working with our consultants can keep you from stalling out.

Generosity

Give your donors the power and knowledge to invest in your mission and impact by creating a join me culture that begins with your board. Working with our consultants can ensure you share your story and grow generosity.

Controlling the Narrative of Your Organization

donor visits
Speakers: Mitzie Schafer

Organizations are what we present them to be. How we talk about our organization through intentional marketing and through unintentional day-to-day conversation (by staff and clients) will create the true perception of the organization. If we aren't telling the story, we are at the mercy of those who are...and if we aren't telling the story, and no one else is, it is as if we don't exist or matter. Controlling the narrative of your organization must be intentional, planned, and everyone on staff must see themselves as a development office regardless of their job title. During this workshop, we will talk about how to train all staff and develop key narrative points.

Evaluating the 1:1 Donor Portfolio - Are You Seeing the Right People?

Public Relations
Speakers: Jennie Smith

Face to face visits are the most effective fundraising approach to build donor relationship, but they are time consuming in the short term while the results may not be realized for a prolonged period of time. 

How do you know if you're seeing the "right" people? How do you balance the number of visits between known givers and potential, but lesser known, givers? With tight budgets and limited human resources, reassessing your 1:1 Donor Portfolio is an important part of strategically managing your fundraising effort. At this Roundtable session, we'll talk about how to build a donor portfolio, assess an existing list, and leave with confidence knowing when to add and remove prospective givers.

You'll leave with tips for technology tools and practical systems that help you work smarter while sustaining personalized donor connection. Join the conversation with your own favorite tip or technology tool that you've applied in your own fundraising strategy.
