The Essential Fundraising Clinic – Flatwoods

July 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Parker Harrington, one on June 29th at 12:00 noon and one on July 6 at 9:00 am. Dial in #: 605-472-5215  Access: 764872#

Attend this fast-paced workshop and understand how to streamline your fundraising efforts for dramatic results. This educational program takes a closer look at sponsorship in its broadest terms – from individuals, foundations and companies — and the steps nonprofits of all sizes can take now to assure future success. This session is led by B. Parker Harrington, one of the nation’s leading experts on nonprofit sponsorship. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and answers.

Workshop Highlights:

  • Review Trends for Philanthropic and Marketing Sponsors
  • Clarify Essential Benefits and Communicating Values
    • Learn from Case Studies from Various Sized Organizations
  • Research Prospects With Limited Time and Budget
  • Chart a Real World Calendar Grounded in Ethical Stewardship
  • Engage Help When No One Else Wants to Ask
  • Streamline a System for Donors, Foundations and Corporate Sponsors

During the working lunch and afternoon clinic you’ll roll up your sleeves to work on specific fundraising tasks. The clinic will provide an ideal environment for starting your sponsorship projects. Parker will be available to offer tips and advice in small groups and one-on-one. Bring your laptop, your past and future sponsorship projects, and your best ideas for implementing strategies discussed during the morning. By working solo or in collaboration with peers, you’ll capitalize on the day’s learnings.

Did you attend Parker’s workshops at our 2016 Leadership Summit? There will be some overlap, but this is a much deeper dive than we had a chance to cover in those workshops. New content: valuing benefits, prospecting, timelines, securing support from staff/volunteers, more in-depth case studies, and more!

*Just Added: All attendees will have the option of two FREE follow-up phone consultation sessions with B. Parker Harrington!
