Fund Development That’s Built to Fit

Saturday, November 19 at 10:30 am MST

Bring your fund development questions and challenges! This interactive session will start with a conversation about you: your organization’s experiences with fundraising and your biggest areas of need. 

Gail Urquhart, from Gail Urquhart Consulting, helps organizations build fundraising programs that fit, and in this workshop, she will lead us through conversations about fundraising fears, challenges and successes. 

The workshop will include some coaching ‘in real time’ on needs identified by the participants on the call, with learnings and best practices that can be tailored to fit your organization whether your fundraising program is just getting going or has been active for years. Expect to leave this session some tried and true tactics and templates that you can put to work as soon as you get back to your desk on Monday.

First Strategic Thinking, then Strategic Planning

In this session, you will explore the importance of strategic thinking and what it means to be truly “strategic” before you begin the typical planning process. 

You will also have the opportunity to learn some theory around organizational planning.

And best of all – you will come away with tips on how to build ownership and commitment, resulting in a plan that is closely followed, versus one that collects dust!
