Favorite Fundraising Mistakes/New Trends in Fundraising
January 16, 2014 from 9am-4pm
Huntington Meeting Room - Main Library in downtown Toledo
(6 hours toward the Certificate in Nonprofit Management)
Guest Speaker: Kay Sprinkel Grace
Description: Philanthropy is changing faster than our organizations. Expectations of donors are rising; metrics are increasingly demanding; and we are being asked to be more nimble in our decision making and to convey our impact rather than our needs. But we are too often held back by thinking and actions that are lodged in traditional practices that may no longer work, and we repeat mistakes that hold us back. Kay Sprinkel Grace, internationally known speaker, author and consultant, will present a provocative session on the trends that are reshaping philanthropy in our decade and identify the mistakes we make that hold us back – and offer remedies for those mistakes. The workshop will include an overview of trends and their implications for our organizations, the ten most common mistakes we make that hold us back, and provide strategies and insights for engaging today’s philanthropists and for seizing the new opportunities in our sector as we move into the second half of the first decade of the 21st Century.
