Program Description:

Do you want to build your ability to ask donors for support?

In this lively two-hour workshop, you will learn the principles behind donor-centered and relationship-based cultivation and stewardship – and how to reach out to your donors to more fully engage them in the life of your organization.

A successful fundraising program is as much about knowing your donors as it is about achieving financial goals. During the workshop, you will learn to build relationships with donors in meaningful ways by developing your authentic curiosity and “fundraising listening” skills to help match your mission with your donors’ philanthropic goals. As part of your practice, you will build a multi-step donor cultivation and stewardship plan using real donors to your organization.

Highly rated and dynamic trainer, Jenn Hayslett, combines her years of leadership experience as a fundraiser in small and mid-sized nonprofits with brain-science research on best practices. She will lead you through hands-on activities designed to decrease anxiety and increase your confidence by practicing skills that are needed to involve your donors.

This workshop is appropriate for anyone interested in increasing their comfort with getting to know donors. It is designed for those who are relatively new to donor cultivation, as well those with multiple years of experience.
