Conversations with Donors

A workshop for nonprofit executives and Board members to learn how to raise more funds by being the stewards of a vision.

Building a Sustainable Relationship with Investors

There is scarcely a Board member in the world that truly enjoys raising money. However, most Board members are very comfortable talking with passion about the organization where they give their time and resources. So, it's time to begin the conversations and start building relationships with the people who care about your organization.

Positive, consistent interactions with donors are the best ways to build a sustainable source of philanthropic revenue. It is also the most effective means of stemming the tide of donor attrition. In this session, learn how you and your Board members can raise more funds by being the stewards of a vision.
