Mar. 1st - Telling Your Story & Evaluating Impact
    Jennifer Pendleton - Aly Sterling Philanthropy


     Every one of us is distracted by messages coming in from many different channels. How does your organization tell its story and ensure your donors (or prospective donors) understand why they should invest in your organization? This interactive workshop will focus on building (or remodeling) your case for support. We’ll explore the importance of a case for support and how to use it to support your annual fund, capital campaign and major gift efforts. We’ll share examples and encourage you to bring your own to share. You’ll leave this session with a checklist of resources and the inspiration to create your own case for support.



Apr. 5th - How to Make the Ask and be Held Accountable for Success: Boards in Fundraising
    Aly Sterling - Aly Sterling Philanthropy

  Philanthropy begins at home with those closest to the organization – the board, staff and volunteers. After all, how can we ask the community to invest in the organization when those closest to it haven’t been given the opportunity? At the same time, over half of all board chairs and executive directors identify philanthropy as one of the most important areas for board improvement! This dynamic workshop is designed to motivate and inspire, and will provide principles of fundraising that can be immediately personalized and applied by board members. Helping board members identify the fundraising strategies that they’re comfortable deploying will create a culture of philanthropy in your organization – a culture that paves the way to long-term fundraising sustainability.
