“Telling Your Story to Engage Donors”

Workshop Date: January 5, 2017

Participants will be introduced to the art of storytelling and how it can help them develop effective relationships with potential donors. Relying on age-old principles of communication, they will discover how stories can emotionally engage donors in their mission, giving them an emotional stake in the organization’s success. They will also learn fundamental tools for collecting and developing their stories.

The program relies on experiential exercises to teach essential tools in the art of storytelling in conjunction with some lecture and discussion. There will be opportunities to role play new skills as well as to share stories with other participants.

“Prepare for a Winning Marketing Plan”

Workshop Date: March 1, 2017

Successful marketing is based on discipline, grasp of communications and a keen understanding of what resonates with audiences. Marketing is both an art and a science.  Statements like “Nobody knows who we are or what we do” and “Why don’t people understand how good we are?” indicate problems with effective marketing. A real marketing plan is essential.  It can be complicated or simple. This workshop will explore considerations during the planning process. This is a basic planning workshop intended for anyone with marketing responsibilities, including the Chief Executive Officer.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand items to consider when creating a dynamic marketing plan
  • Consider what questions to ask before finalizing a plan

Third Day of Training (February 10, 2016)

  • “Raising Funds Through Special Events”

Special events . . . are they right for your organization? Special events typically raise a relatively small amount of net proceeds compared to the huge amount of time and energy you dedicate to plan and execute them. Yet, events do have value for nonprofit organizations.

Events offer an opportunity to: 1) increase visibility, 2) engage volunteers, 3) develop leadership, 4) open doors for new donors and “friends,” 5) improve donor relations, and 6) raise unrestricted operating support.

With the amount of time and resources that special events require, you cannot afford for them to fail. Prepare yourself to establish clear goals for the event, implement proven strategies, and evaluate the event’s success.

Planning a special event takes time and skill—ensure you are reaching your full potential with clear timelines, budgets, committee descriptions, revenue enhancers, and more!

Time: 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Donor engagement is about the relationship, not just the organization’s needs. When you increase donor engagement you will have long lasting “friends” that will support your mission for the long run.   Donor engagement is a mind shift that becomes integrated into every step of fundraising from cultivation, to asking, to thanking and lastly to stewardship.

This two hour facilitated workshop will help participants to think outside of the box about the various ways donors can become more engaged in your mission in meaningful ways that capture their hearts and minds.
