“Philanthropy AND Fundraising: Two Critical Strategies” September 14, 2021 @ 11am – Virtual
Philanthropy is different from Fundraising. Yet, too often, inexperienced or professionals unfamiliar with either one do not know the difference, and their efforts at managing both explicitly suffer. One is a required strategy if the other is going to succeed. And one is a strategy that furthermore relies on the other’s community to be strong. One builds the community from which your fundraising will prosper, it drives engagement and loyalty. The other is the system and structure which you use to capture those evolving in your Philanthropic community. It’s all very scientific. You can plan, forecast, and measure these topics with very specific objectives and outcomes. This workshop will teach you how!
- Participants will be able to identify and specifically articulate the fundamental and the critical differences between philanthropy and fundraising
- Attendees will understand learn to particularly design the process and key imperatives for each, philanthropy and fundraising
- Participants will moreover explore behavioral indicators for both philanthropy and fundraising through a group case study
- Attendees will learn how to correlate and capture the philanthropic reaction of their community through a fundraising strategy. This strategy will markedly define and segment donors.
