Dave Brewton and Don Block return to teach essential fundraising skills!
Boards and Fundraising
Tuesday, April 2 from 9 a.m. – noon
A frequent complaint about nonprofit Boards is that they are not active enough in fundraising. What is the root of this problem, and how can we put in place a process to solve it? This seminar will challenge you to think in new ways about the roles of Board and staff members and how they can work effectively together to raise more funds. It will be led by an executive director who has nearly 30 years of experience in partnering with Board members around this issue. This session is open to both staff and Board members, but is most effective when an agency can send both. Bring your questions, and expect a lively discussion.
Instructor: Don Block, Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council
Creating a Fundraising Strategy
Wednesday, April 10 from 1 – 4 p.m.
Most nonprofits’ fundraising strategies can be summed up in one of two ways: “It’s the way we’ve always done it,” or “We’re forever holding out a tin cup.” Charitable revenues are the lifeblood of our missions. We wouldn’t approach any other aspect of our work the same way. What are best practices in fundraising that the most successful nonprofits know and consistently use? How does your agency stack up? Come to this class with your organizational budget and current fundraising methods and leave with an outline of a true strategy to guide your future successful fundraising efforts.
Instructor: Dave Brewton, DRB Community Development Consulting
