WEBINAR: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 11:00 A.M., PST

Six Strategies For Cultivating Big Donors In The Time Of COVID

PRESENTER
Robin Sukhadia


Time is the most precious commodity in fundraising, especially when you are leading or part of a small but mighty development team. Knowing where to best invest your fundraising time is critical to success, yet it can be one of the hardest aspects of strategic fundraising because there are so many worthy ways to spend your energy. Many smaller groups believe that focusing on major donors who can give bigger gifts, instead of communicating with a larger number of lower-capacity donors makes great sense, especially if they have a strong network of prospects to try and tap. But how do you go after these “big fish” when you have a tiny team? How does major gifts fundraising work during a pandemic? Robin Sukhadia, a musician, fundraising strategist, and former Major Gifts Officer for the Colburn School, shares strategies that can help you when embarking on major donor cultivation, even if your development department is tiny. In this webinar you will:

  • Learn specific tactics to improve major donor identification from current and new donors, especially during a pandemic
  • Explore different tools to strengthen staff capabilities to ask for major gifts
  • Hear about the experiences of cultivating major donors from peer organizations

 


WEBINAR: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 11:00 A.M., PST

Opportunity Knocks! Leading Change with Your Staff, Board and Audiences During Covid and Beyond

PRESENTER
Hannah Grannemann


"We can't go back to the way things were." "There's such an opportunity to change right now." Easier said than done. Even though arts organizations have the image of being innovative and creative, the people working inside them are often reluctant to embrace the changes required for success. Audiences also can be wary of change, even as they look to the arts as the source of inspiration and fresh ideas. Hannah Grannemann will share ways to get buy-in for new ideas within your arts organization -- and how to entice audiences to try your new programs.

 


WEBINAR: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 11:00 A.M., PST

The Wallace Foundation seeks to improve education and enrichment for disadvantaged children and foster the vitality of arts for everyone. The foundation has an unusual approach: funding efforts to test innovative ideas for solving important public problems, conducting research to find out what works and what doesn’t and to fill key knowledge gaps – and then communicating the results to help others. Wallace, which works nationally, has five major initiatives under way:
  • School leadership: Strengthening education leadership to improve student achievement.
  • Afterschool: Helping selected cities make good afterschool programs available to many more children.
  • Building audiences for the arts: Enabling arts organizations to bring the arts to a broader and more diverse group of people.
  • Arts education: Expanding arts learning opportunities for children and teens.
  • Summer and expanded learning: Better understanding the impact of high-quality summer learning programs on disadvantaged children, and enriching and expanding the school day in ways that benefit students.
