From event planning to major donor solicitations and everything in between, many of us are just doing our best to get to our fundraising goals each year without dropping the proverbial ball. It is chaos and challenge, celebration and heartache, and we do it day after day because we love the work. This workshop will help you step back from the minutia, and take a broader look at developing a fundraising plan that can support your goals and keep you on track toward success. You’ll leave this workshop with the tools you need to turn your strategic goals into an actionable annual fundraising plan.

Planned Giving – Is it right for you and your donors?

Increasingly we are hearing news stories about donors leaving gifts to their favorite nonprofits in their wills and trusts. But how does this really work and are there ways you can engage with your donors to develop a plan together? Absolutely. In this workshop we will provide an overview of what planned giving entails for the nonprofit and the donor. We’ll look at resources available in your community and how you can play a role in your donor’s estate planning decisions.
