Funders and donors are growing savvier and more sophisticated in the way they make giving choices. Hence, the need for nonprofit organizations to understand the changing ‘donor market’ and their stakeholders has become more imperative than ever. It is also crucial to continuously go back to the basics and revisit organizational fundraising strategy and culture to ensure that the organization is on the right track for continued growth.
In this program, you will learn from faculty and practitioner experts on topics related to strategies for growing fundraising capacity, fundraising cultures and infrastructures required for achieving fundraising goals and simply why people give. This program will also bring in a funder’s perspective to have a healthy discussion on what techniques work to attract funders for a mutually sustainable relationship.
