What you'll learn today.

What you'll use tomorrow.

Some of your questions answered:

• Is this a good time to fundraising?

• Should we launch a capital campaign?

• How to craft an inspiring message for donors.

• Is it insensitive to ask for donations now?

• How to make this a transformational moment for giving. 

The fundraising LANDSCAPE was already shifting

What are the three "fatigues" that already defined the past decade? Now add COVID-19, racial unrest and economic uncertainty and we're facing a "Fundraising Perfect Storm."

How can we respond that inspires giving and loyalty?

The TRENDS that will define our work

Demographics, technology and science will reshape our work today and in the future. You'll learn new tools, tactics, and strategies.

What are donors THINKING?

Americans will give away $1,000,000,000 – today!

What can you do now to capture this profound altruism now and in the future?

By understand the behavioral sciences of giving – what's going on in the donor's mind – you can improve your odds of success.

Will fundraising ever be the same?

The world will never look like 2019 again. Successful fundraising, development, and philanthropy must transform. Why is this crisis different than Katrina, 9/11,...? Foundation and corporation giving is at records levels, but why is seeking support from individuals more important than ever?


You'll have the chance to ask questions specific to your organization, your cause and your work. If we don't have time during the session, you're invited to contact me personally to discuss challenges unique to your organization.
