with Darian Rodriguez Heyman

August 30 | 1:00-2:00 PM CT

These days,Seismic shifts abound, nonprofits need the skills to pivot. America’s racial reckoning, rapidly evolving technology, trust-based philanthropy, and impacts on the modern workplace demand that oganizations take a fresh look at fundraising strategies adjusted for this new reality.

These challenges also offer us new opportunities, and present myriad implications on resource development. Funding is the lifeblood of any social enterprise, so given competing calls for time and attention, how can mission-based organizations quickly, efficiently take stock of these trends and determine how to most effectively leverage them in support of their work? Join us as we explore a range of transformational changes, with a focus on how each can be harnessed. If you are an executive director, board chair or development committee chair, or a fundraising or events staffer, this session is not to be missed!

The pandemic necessitated nonprofits to rapidly innovate their fundraising strategies. This webinar will provide tactics to leverage societal shifts into stronger donor engagement.

Key Takeaways:

  • Integrating new technologies
  • Building trust through transparency
  • Diversifying donor demographics

Let me know if this works better or if you would like me to modify the paragraph and takeaways further.
