Program Description

Staff and volunteers tell us all the time how exhausting and challenging fundraising is. Nonprofits commonly repeat the same annual fundraising activities and expect – but don’t get – different results. Donor retention (if it’s even tracked) is less than ideal. Often, the team works harder than they have to without the desired results.

To complicate matters, many organizations are now facing the “philanthropic cliff” as special pandemic grants from foundations and the government have come to an end or will shortly. 

It’s time to comfortably step off the hamster wheel of scheduled appeals and events and cure your annualitis. Take this dose of philantherapy by joining us for an engaging workshop that helps you attract sustainable philanthropic revenue.

In this session you will learn about sustainable revenue and how you can position your organization to attract multi-year support. Understand what needs to be in place to secure these gifts. When do you ask? When don’t you ask? How do you steward to sustain the gifts? And where does planned giving fit in?  

Please join us for this engaging workshop to explore your path to fiscal sustainability. You will leave with an understanding of how to position yourself for fundraising growth and success for the short and long term. Carefully step off the fundraising hamster wheel for a few hours. Catch your breath and let your learnings help you take your nonprofit to a new level of scale, impact, and philanthropic success.

For maximum benefit, please invite key board members and executive leadership to this workshop so your team can walk away with a shared understanding.
