In this webinar, two very successful online fundraisers, Maumee Valley Country Day School and Food Lifeline, will describe how they drive existing donors to give online, and how they solicit new online donors.

Leveraging Your Board

For most nonprofits, having a Board of Directors is a given. However, many nonprofits feel that their Board takes a passive rather than active role in the organization, viewing their Board membership as an obligation rather than an exciting opportunity to contribute. Would you like your Board members to become dynamic contributors to your organization? in this webinar, we discuss best practice for recruiting and managing Board members to achieve optimal results with two seasoned philanthropy consultants who are experts at coaching nonprofits to coax the very best from every member of their Board.

Fundraising Into the Mission

Assimilating Fundraising into the Mission

When fundraising and mission execution are truly integrated, both efforts become easier. Each effort enhances the other. Every resource is utilized to the fullest. Fundraising becomes part of your organizational culture, not the result of a specific, strenuous effort—it becomes easier to sustain when you stop trying so hard. At this webinar, you’ll learn tips from Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) on successfully integrating online and event-based fundraising. As well as how to enhance your website, leverage operational transparency, and create a heritage program to drive more giving. Watch the webinar »


Engaging Your Entire Audience

Many guests who attend charity auctions come with their hearts and pocket books open, yet leave without getting the chance to give or feel included in the fundraising process. A big reason for this is because the event isn't inclusive enough, and caters to the small percentage of guests who can afford big ticket items in the live — for everybody else the live auction is just a spectator sport. Your invaluable donors have made an investment in time and money to attend your event, so make sure to include them from start to finish! This webinar will explain how to engage your entire audience during the live event with fun and creative fundraising ideas. Watch the webinar »
