Webinar Description

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 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.

Presented by: Gail Urquhart – President, Gail Urquhart Consulting

Gail has spent over 30 years working on the fundraising frontlines of charitable organizations across Canada, providing strategic leadership, mentoring fundraising professionals and teams, and running successful fundraising programs and campaigns that focus on genuine donor engagement. Now a charity advisor and high performance coach, Gail partners with a small and carefully chosen group of clients, sharing her hands-on experience to help create fund development programs and leadership practices that are built to fit and to help take organizations where they want to go.
