Fund Development Management and Leadership

When: Jun 12, 2014 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

When: June 12, 2014 9:00AM - 4:00PM

Using a donor-centered approach, this day-long workshop focuses on the role of management and leadership in the resource development process.

Discussion includes:

  • Strategic Development
  • Ethics
  • Values
  • Relationship building
  • Creating a fund development plan

We will look at managing and operating the fund development process and providing leadership to staff, volunteers, and board members. Participants will discover how personalization and engagement of donors is critical to fund development. The following topics will be included:

  • How the development fits into the strategic plan
  • Components of a communication plan
  • Creating the case: the elevator speech, the dinner party speech, the airplane seat speech
  • Finding, cultivating, soliciting, and stewarding constituency
  • Making the "ask"
  • Organizing and managing the process, infrastructure, governance, volunteers
  • Developing legal/ethical Gift acceptance and acknowledgement policies
  • Handling difficult situations (for example, an unwanted gift, donor micromanagement, or broken promises/unfulfilled pledges)
  • Evaluating the plan, people, and performance

This workshop is recommended for individuals who have some experience in fund development and want to improve strategies, policies, and techniques.

"This was an exceptional, interesting, and informative session. Thank you!"

"Really made me think about important roles of volunteers and donors. Great program!"
