As fundraisers, we come to work every day thinking about how we can motivate more donors to invest in our cause; this is what we’re trained for. But it’s just half the equation. What about the organizational conditions so essential to fundraising success? You can impact these factors more than you might think. In this interactive workshop, we will explore the crucial role of the fundraiser in bringing about internal change to increase external success. You will learn how to create an environment that best supports successful fundraising.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the organizational conditions required for fundraising success
  2. Explore the fundraiser’s role as a catalyst for organizational change
  3. Learn change management techniques to apply in your planning and your everyday work
